AMSTERDAM and SAN JOSE, Calif. – Royal Philips is partnering with Samsung to connect Samsung’s ARTIK Smart Internet of Things platform to the Philips HealthSuite digital platform. The collaboration will ultimately allow the Samsung ARTIK ecosystem of connected devices to safely access and share information with Philips’ cloud platform. “This collaboration will enable health care application developers to focus on the development of innovative applications rather than on the technical integration of devices,” said Dale Wiggins, general manager of Philips HealthSuite digital platform, in a statement. “By strengthening our HealthSuite ecosystem with Samsung ARTIK, we will be taking another important step in breaking down the silos in today’s health care domain to create a trusted and seamless care experience for both consumers and care professionals.” Device manufacturers using Samsung’s ARTIK hardware or cloud services will be able to deliver new benefits to their customers with the applications and services provided by Philips’ HealthSuite, including integration of devices and device data into electronic medical records, personal health records and advanced health analytics. Health care application developers working with HealthSuite will be able to use data from devices connected to Samsung’s SmartThings Cloud to develop new, data-driven connected health solutions. Devices built with Samsung ARTIK Systems-on-Modules will also be able to integrate with the HealthSuite digital platform. “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,” said James Stansberry, senior vice president and general manager of ARTIK IoT, Samsung Electronics, in a statement.
