At the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. will unveil the latest innovations and solutions that leverage digital health technologies to improve patient care. Between February 20th and 22nd at booth #3673, Samsung and its partners will demonstrate the latest in-home, in-hospital and in-health solutions that enhance the patient experience, improve clinical outcomes and increase workflow efficiencies for healthcare professionals.
As hospitals, doctors and patients increasingly turn to digital solutions to meet their growing healthcare needs, Samsung is leveraging its robust enterprise ecosystem – including IoT, sensors, intuitive mobile devices and more, to meet the needs of hospital clinicians, homecare providers, family caretakers and patients.
“Right now, the healthcare industry faces profound challenges, and there is a pressing need to identify solutions and approaches that will curb the rising cost of healthcare, increase access to care, and improve the quality of care and patient experience,” says Dr. David Rhew, Samsung’s chief medical officer and head of healthcare and fitness. “Through leading research, proven best practices and the latest digital health offerings, we are working with world-class partners to make a real difference in improving the lives of patients and making care more efficient.”
Samsung is collaborating with leading healthcare companies to deliver innovative solutions that will be on display at HIMSS. The solutions featured in the booth will include:
Also on display in the Samsung booth will be Gear VR, Samsung’s industry leading virtual reality headset. Virtual reality delivers immersive, multi-sensory experiences that have the potential to benefit diverse sets of patients in various healthcare settings. VR technology is already being used today to provide a drug-free, calming experience that can reduce pain, alleviate anxiety and ease stress.
Medtronic’s MiniMed Connect application provides diabetes patients with discreet, real-time access to continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data through an easy to use smartphone application, whitelisted for select Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S7 and S7 Edge. MiniMed Connect also allows real-time access to CGM data via text message or any internet-connected mobile device or PC, enabling loved-ones or care partners to more effectively monitor patients.
