Meaningful alarms
empowered nurses

Philips Clinical Service can help your hospital deliver the right care, at the right time—in the right way


Adjusting default settings and alarm thresholds and educating nurses in how to operate alarm systems isn’t enough. Nursing teams need a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to alarm management. Technology, data and help from experts who have done it before can start to make it happen.

Philips consultants look at your hospital’s people, processes and technology to create optimal alarm management solutions. Using a proven, data-driven approach, our clinical specialists become your partners to reduce fatigue and support uninterrupted quality of care—and to give your teams the information they need, when they need it.
