How can industry support the NHS five year forward view?

This content relates to the following topics:

As we know, the pressures on the NHS coupled with the drive to deliver more pro-active, patient-centred care mean that the health care landscape must continue to evolve.

In response to the NHS five year forward view, Philips has co-ordinated a response from industry that follows its own view that industry's role is to look beyond to the experiences of patients, providers and caregivers across the health continuum.

Philips' is focused on unlocking insights that lead to meaningful innovations, from healthy living to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, recovery and home care. The company is continually investing in co-designing, with care providers, solutions that combine clinical breadth and depth of expertise, technology and services, actionable data, consultative new business models and partnerships. In adopting this approach Philips shares some of the risks and responsibility with care providers, so that together we can transform how care is delivered and experienced.
