Philips Respironics has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA for Care Orchestrator, a cloud-based clinical management software application.

According to Philips, Care Orchestrator is a first-of-its-kind connected health technology in the home care space that connects the company’s portfolio of sleep and respiratory care products, allowing data, clinical management workflow, informatics and intelligence for providers, payers and patients within a single platform.

Care Orchestrator is built as part of Philips’ HealthSuite digital platform, an open cloud-based platform of services, capabilities and tools. The system will interact with sleep and respiratory devices, electronic medical records (EMRs), insurance claims and billing systems and other Philips and third party applications on the HealthSuite digital platform. The system aims to improve:

  • Treatment adherence: The complete and robust data provided by Care Orchestrator enables providers and their care networks to efficiently communicate important information about their patients. This helps to create an adaptable treatment decision process and support better clinical outcomes.
  • Patient and provider engagement: Care Orchestrator alerts providers when treatment intervention is necessary, allowing them to focus resources on patients who most need their attention. For patients, Care Orchestrator builds on existing solutions, such as DreamMapper, to help patients become more engaged in their treatment.
  • Billing and Reimbursement: With Care Orchestrator, homecare providers, health systems payers and physicians gain the benefit of a set of integrated data technologies that enable them to efficiently share information with their networks.

“With Care Orchestrator, we are offering the next generation in healthcare software applications and informatics, and are expanding our strong legacy of solutions and vision for connected patient care,” said Tim Murphy, General Manager of New Business Solutions, Philips Respironics. “The future of sleep and respiratory home care is enabled by health tech solutions that help our customers manage growing requirements with intelligent, clinical interventions that connect all members of the care team to deliver effective patient outcomes.”
