Indonesia Telehealth Company of the Year Award & Asia Pacific Telehealth Company of the Year Award

Philip's Mobile Obstetrics Monitoring (MOM) was piloted in Indonesia with the Indonesian Reproduction Science Institute (IRSI) at Bundamedik hospital group, providing expectant mothers with enhanced care to help address maternal mortality -- a top priority for Indonesia. The one year pilot that awarded Philips with Indonesia Tele-health Company of the Year Award took place with 656 pregnant women and showcased how this solution helps to unite information and action to identify and manage high-risk pregnancies by bringing care to where it's urgently needed -- primary health centers and patient homes. MOM empowers community caregivers to capture vital information during home visits, enabling antenatal risk stratification, diagnostic assistance, and progress assessment through mobile applications.

Philips was also presented Asia Pacific Telehealth Company of the Year Award for launching the first tele-health program for heart failure patients in Singapore. The dedicated pilot study integrates three key elements, tele-monitoring, tele-education, and tele-care support via the EH Alliance's Health Management Unit (HMU) nurse tele-carers in Changi General Hospital (CGH). These help engage heart failure patients to better take care of their health, helping to reduce the risk of hospitalization and premature death.

These are examples of how Philips achieves effective levels of healthcare engagement with targeted and well-managed introduction of the latest healthcare technology solutions. They also acknowledge the company's ongoing commitment and relentless effort to deliver meaningful innovations in order to improve individuals' lives throughout the region -- bridging the hospital to home, better connecting the healthcare system and empowering patients to better manage their conditions.
