Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology, installs the Philips Azurion with FlexArm in the Philippine Heart Center (PHC).
This revolutionary solution is set to establish a new standard for patient imaging and positioning flexibility for image-guided procedures.
With a rising demand for complex interventions, metric-driven outcomes, and cost-efficiency care delivery, clinicians now face the challenge to find the right tools that enable them to continue providing superior care to patients.
In Asia, chronic conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, coupled with an aging population, are driving the need for more minimally invasive procedures.
By 2030, Asia is expected to be home to over 60 percent of the total population aged 65 years or older. Locally, top three causes of death in the country in 2020 were ischaemic heart diseases, neoplasms, and cerebrovascular diseases.
Incidentally, these were also the leading causes of death in 2019.
This phenomenon resulted in a strong appeal for minimally invasive surgeries for patients, with the aim to improve outcomes at lower risks and cost.
