With the integration of Samsung’s ARTIK services with the Philips Healthsuite Digital Platform, the ecosystem of products and services available to care providers will become broader. Philips and Samsung today announced plans for a strategic partnership that will ultimately allow the Samsung ARTIK ecosystem of connected devices to safely access and share information with Philips’ cloud platform. Healthcare application developers will be able to realize interoperable connected health solutions using integrated data sets and HealthSuite services such as health analytics.

“This collaboration will enable healthcare application developers to focus on the development of innovative applications rather than on the technical integration of devices,” said Dale Wiggins, General Manager Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform at Philips. “By strengthening our HealthSuite ecosystem with Samsung ARTIK, we will be taking another important step in breaking down the silos in today’s healthcare domain to create a trusted and seamless care experience for both consumers and care professionals.”

“This is an incredibly exciting time in healthcare, as the industry begins to harness the power of data to bring better care to consumers,” said James Stansberry, Senior Vice President and GM, ARTIK IoT, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung ARTIK-enabled devices and cloud services integrated with Philips HealthSuite can address the growing need for connected health platforms that can safely access, share, and analyze information, helping health systems and providers achieve their goal of delivering better care to consumers, from prevention and detection to diagnosis and treatment.”

The new opportunities include integration of devices and device data into Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Personal Health Records (PHR), and advanced health analytics. Healthcare application developers working with the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform will be able to use data from devices connected to Samsung’s SmartThings Cloud to develop new, data-driven connected health solutions. In addition, they can leverage data from various sources and IoT solutions, like QualcommLife, Validic and Philips’ own HealthSuite IoT solution which is based on Amazon Web Services IoT. Next to this, devices built with ARTIK secure Systems-on-Modules (SOMs) will also be able to integrate with the HealthSuite Digital Platform.

Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform is an open but secured platform of services, capabilities, and tools designed to enable development of connected health and wellness and healthcare innovations. Samsung’s ARTIK Smart IoT Platform is an open secure platform that provides solutions from hardware systems-on-modules to cloud services.
