Partner with Philips for better care and improved efficiency
 

Philips HomeSafe solutions are designed to help manage falls to provide more independence for users and improved clinical and financial outcomes for care givers. We are a preferred partner for over 2,500 organisations around the world and have more than 40 years of experience in this area.

Around 30% of adults older than 65 (approximately 2.5 million people in England) and living at home will experience at least 1 fall per year⁵.  HomeSafe solutions from Philips allow caregivers to take proactive care, which can help avoid up to 27% of hospitalisations² and ease pressures on the health system.
Greater independence for older people
3.5 million people in the UK over the age of 65 live alone³ and with proven medical alert systems from Philips, they are able to maintain their independence and active lifestyles for longer, before moving to costly residential care. With HomeSafe solutions older adults can call for help from any place in their homes, or on the go, giving family and friends greater peace of mind that help is at hand for their loved ones, even when they are not around.

Better patient outcomes and care

With innovative integrated software and reliable medical alert devices, our solutions can help you manage patient risks and target your resources to provide proactive care when it’s needed. Our CareSage analytics engine can predict an individual’s risk of requiring emergency transportation up to 30 days in advance.

By proactively managing patients whose status changes, healthcare providers can reduce the need for emergency admissions, thus improving outcomes for the patient and saving cost in the system. 

Reduced pressure and costs for the health system

A Royal College of Physicians (2011) report highlights that falls and fractures in people aged 65 and over account for over 4 million hospital bed days each year in England alone⁴.

Proactive care can help avoid up to 27% of hospitalisations² - Philips HomeSafe solutions allow healthcare providers greater transparency of the ‘at risk’ populations and support efficient use of resources. Patients are monitored remotely and empowered to manage their conditions knowing that support is available when needed.

Dedicated business support

Philips partnership approach means that we will offer you a wide range of tools to support and grow your programme. This is all backed by our long term experience and expertise in the Healthcare industry.

We have the capability to support your transformation programme with pathway redesign, population risk stratification, governance and much more. Where appropriate we will also work with partners to ensure a smooth implementation of an holistic solution suited to your unique healthcare environment. 

“Continuity matters as patients use their experience as a barometer of the service in general, e.g. whether information about their care passes between professionals within hospitals or between providers. Good continuity inspires trust and confidence from patients"

National voluntary organisation spokesman
King’s Fund, 2012
That all changes with our CareSage predictive analytics engine. It collects and analyses data from multiple sources, enabling you to monitor, qualify and assess patient risk remotely in order to improve patient outcomes and care. This technology is the only solution that identifies when a patient needs assistance, or is at risk for emergency transport in any upcoming 30-day period.
See how the predictive analytics engine CareSage can help your health organisations reduce avoidable admissions and A&E visits for its frail and elderly population. CareSage can help you reduce risk, lower costs and improve outcomes.
