Connect to Philips Healthcare


at South by Southwest® Interactive 2015

March 13th - March 17th | Austin, TX, USA

Health and fitness apps, smart devices and connected products are making us more aware of our own health—and more active participants in our efforts to stay healthy. At the same time, health providers are looking to technology for smarter ways to deliver quality care, whether we are in the hospital or at home.


We see the potential of digital innovations and connected solutions at every turn, from encouraging healthy living and prevention, to enabling timely diagnosis and treatment, faster recoveries and better home care. Join us to hear how together we aim to improve the lives of 3 billion people a year by 2025.
