MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market, has selected the Phillips-Medisize Connected Health Platform (CHP) as the winner of its “Best Overall Connected Healthcare Solution” award in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. The Molex company is based in Hudson, WI.
According to the company, the Phillips-Medisize CHP encompasses extensive information-sharing, analytics capabilities, robust cybersecurity, and streamlined regulatory documentation to support medical device, pharmaceutical, and diagnostics companies.
“We extend a hearty congratulations to the Phillips-Medisize team on their success and innovation in the connected health space and are proud to recognize them as a marquee 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Award winner,” says James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Their cloud-based CHP helps pharmaceutical companies and drug-delivery device developers tackle the worldwide challenge of patient medication adherence, while speeding development time to market and keeping healthcare costs down.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
The award-winning Connected Health Platform (CHP) is registered with the FDA as a Medical Device Data System (MDDS) and is designed from the ground up to support patients with their medication regimes and related data. The system includes simple, intuitive mobile apps and reminders to support and motivate users.
Phillips-Medisize’s CHP can track medication usage for multiple drug products, on a global basis, in real-time. The CHP comes with a Software Development Toolkit (SDK) and defined, extensible API, allowing any device to be connected to the system. This enables pharmaceutical companies to deploy a single solution across all therapy areas and drug compounds if desired, instead of having to utilize different companies’ platforms for each product and device type.
Pharmaceutical companies and payer/provider organizations also benefit from the platform’s powerful analytics package, which is designed to connect and display information from connected drug delivery devices, biosensors and regulated Mobile Medical Applications (SaMD/MMA). This enables customers to quickly generate views of their data and create data presentation layers for use by the analytics engine, providing deep insight into how medication is taken.
With the Phillips-Medisize CHP being built on InterSystem’s HealthShare technology, the solution benefits from the interoperability ingrained within this technology. This allows the CHP to integrate healthcare data from multiple sources via its enterprise master patient index. The data can be made actionable for payers and providers, allowing connection, via integration, to various EMR and EHR systems.
