· "You have to put all the data in order to get second-level information," acknowledges José Manuel Morales, head of the ICT Service at the Rio Hortega Hospital

· "We have to respond and ensure that we are not a gateway to a possible cybersecurity attack," says Frederic Martínez Sacchi, head of the Connected Care business at Philips Ibérica

Madrid, May 26, 2023 – Cybersecurity, clinical data management or connectivity are some of the challenges that the information systems of Spanish hospitals are currently facing and which have been discussed during the second IT Workshop for security solutions. Connected Care held at the offices of Philips Iberia in Madrid.

This forum was attended by more than 50 directors and IT managers from hospitals from all over Spain, such as José Manuel Morales, head of the ICT Service at the Río Hortega University Hospital in Valladolid. Morales has insisted that data management "is the new challenge facing healthcare." “For years we have been collecting normalized and non-normalized data. Now we have to put them in order to try to get second-level information that can help clinical practice ”, he pointed out.

Fight cybercrime

The digitization of healthcare has given healthcare professionals the power to access, analyze, manage and share clinical data in ways that were previously impossible. It has also made your healthcare products, systems, networks and hospital data highly vulnerable to cybercrime.

From Philips they are working to make their systems and solutions increasingly secure. “We have to respond and make sure that we are not a gateway to a possible cybersecurity attack. Therefore, we also work with tools so that our systems and devices are protected”, clarified Frederic Martínez Sacchi, head of the Connected Care business at Philips Ibérica.

Another key to improving patient care and collaboration begins with comprehensive interoperability, thus optimizing the workflow and improving collaboration in healthcare, allowing fluid exchange of clinical data between the different agents. . It is also necessary to work on connectivity, as Frederic Martínez has warned. "That allows us to have clinical data at the patient's bedside, wherever, at any time and therefore make the best decisions."

Solutions to improve patient care and outcomes

Philips' contribution is based on solving the needs or problems faced by the Health System. To do this, it is based on four basic objectives: to improve health results, improve the patient experience, improve the experience of professionals and provide solutions with sustainable costs.

With solutions such as the ICCA platform, which transforms patient data into meaningful information for the physician and simplifies the clinical workflow, or the IntelliSpace Cardiovascular portal, which helps medical personnel obtain and generate information for the evaluation and monitoring of cardiology patients.

The company covers regional projects in different specialties. In the words of the person in charge of the Connected Care business, there are multiple examples, among which it is worth highlighting “digitized electrocardiography, which has made it possible to reduce waiting lists, make earlier diagnoses and, in this way, improve the percentage of patient survival; or the comprehensive management of pregnancy where we are able to reduce the number of caesarean sections”.

Dialogue between industry and IT professionals

This second Philips Iberia IT Workshop has served to put the solutions to build the hospital of the future on the table. “It is an open forum to understand the challenges of healthcare organizations in the face of the third phase of digitization and how it influences the clinical needs and those of their professionals”, Frederic Martínez highlighted.

“I think it is a good practice for a large company that is identifying where the new clinical informatics trends are going to get in touch with customers, to see our concerns first and for us to see what they are up to. is working. It is a scenario of collaboration that is good for both actors”, concluded José Manuel Morales.
