As a Mi² partner, Philips will bring healthcare technology expertise, insights and global best practices to help understand and address challenges faced by the Canadian health system. The partnership will enable Mi² to develop leadership resources for the creation of innovative and disruptive new technologies and collaboration on Mi² education and training development, workshops, publications, research projects and clinical studies.
The partnership between Philips Canada and Mi² aims to explore innovative projects such as process redesign and practice changes that could improve patient care and may be tested and trialed at Mackenzie Health’s Innovation Unit and beyond. The Mackenzie Health Innovation Unit is an acute care medical unit at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and acts as a living laboratory for innovations to be developed, evaluated and adopted by other patient care units at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, as well as the future Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, and potentially at the health system level.
Philips is helping to establish best practices in healthcare management as part of various large-scale vendor partnerships and innovative managed equipment services agreements with innovative health care providers like Mackenzie Health.
