About Philips Healthcare
At Philips, we try to simplify healthcare through combining our unique clinical expertise with human insights to develop innovations that ultimately help to improve the quality of people’s lives.
People focused, healthcare simplified.
At Philips Healthcare, we combine our unique clinical expertise with human insights to develop solutions that deliver value throughout the care cycle: from disease prevention to screening and diagnosis, through to treatment, monitoring and health management – wherever care is given: in the hospital or at home. People focused healthcare means learning what it is like to be a patient, as well as understanding the complexities facing the care givers.
Through these insights, we aim to develop more intuitive, affordable and better technology solutions, to help take some of the complexity out of healthcare. That is healthcare simplified. With a growing presence in cardiology, oncology, and women’s health, we focus on the fundamental health problems with which people are confronted, such as congestive heart failure, lung and breast cancers and coronary artery disease.
Our focus is to deliver value throughout the complete cycle of care: from disease prevention to screening and diagnosis through to treatment, monitoring and health management. Philips is dedicated to making an impact wherever care happens, within the hospital - critical care, emergency care and surgery – and, as importantly, in the home.
In 2009, the Healthcare business accounted for nearly 33 percent of Philips’ overall sales, the company’s second largest contributor to sales.
