Royal Philips announced details of its participation in the Dreamforce 2014 conference in San Francisco, California, October 13-16, demonstrating its commitment to connecting care from hospital to home with digital solutions and services that span the health continuum.
As the featured health technology company in the Dreamforce Health and Life Sciences section of the Salesforce Industry Showcase, Philips will present the power of its HealthSuite Digital Platform.
Philips and salesforce.com will demonstrate the power of combining functionality and capabilities from their respective platforms to change the way consumers engage with the health care system and become active participants in the management of their health.
As part of this strategy, Philips is working to create a suite of open application programming interfaces (APIs) that can be used by developers to create innovative applications for hospitals and health systems. Visitors to the Philips booth in the Salesforce Customer Showcase can sign up to learn more about its Developers Toolkit, which is expected to be available in early 2015.
"Our collaboration on an open, cloud-based healthcare platform and the development of our HealthSuite Digital Platform are well underway, and Dreamforce is the perfect venue to highlight our connected technology solutions offering new opportunities for improved health management," said Jeroen Tas, CEO, Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services, Philips.
Within the Salesforce Industry Showcase at Dreamforce, Philips will showcase how the company is pairing its deep clinical knowledge and IT capabilities with salesforce.com’s leading customer success platform to deliver on its vision to make the world healthier through innovation.
