Toward a model of personalized medicine


Cancer incidence and related healthcare costs continue to grow. There is a big need to diagnose and treat patients in efficient settings with a focus on the best care. The key? You must combine using the best imaging and therapy capabilities, patient experience and lowest cost with the goal to improve patient outcomes. 

 

We help make this possible with tools and services for accurate first time right decision-making imaging, fast supporting right decision-making tools and enable targeted, patient-specific therapy. With Philips, the future of personalized oncology is within your reach.

Recent Trends
 

Rising threat

In 2008, cancer counted for 7.6 million deaths around the world. By 2030, this is projected to exceed 13.1 million.

 

Economic drain

Cancer has the most devastating economic impact of any cause of death worldwide - €662 billion in 2008 (not including direct costs of treating cancer). That’s 1.5% of global GDP.

Three imperatives to combat these trends
 

1. Confident diagnosis

Characterize or stage a patient’s disease accurately and completely, the first time. Enable multi-disciplinary collaboration.

 

2. Personalized therapies
Target patient-specific cancer using imaging‐based or integrated therapy. Improve long-term outcomes while minimizing side effects.

 

3. Efficient delivery

Optimize workflows to drive down cost of care and boost throughput, while improving patient experience. Provide enhanced Home Care.

Confident diagnosis

The challenge

Cancer care is moving towards optimal, personalized treatment choices that are tailored to individual patients. All of the information from disciplines in cancer diagnostics and genomics come together to inform the decisions made by cancer specialists during the diagnostic phase. Digitization of healthcare enables all diagnostic data (from radiology, pathology and in-vitro diagnostic tests) becoming available in a digital form.

 

At Philips, we enable characterization and staging a patient’s disease confidently.
