Phillips-Medisize Partners with InterSystems in Connected Health Platform

InterSystemsPhillips-Medisize, a Molex company, has joined forces with InterSystems, a global leader in healthcare software technology to develop the third-generation Connected Health Platform. The integration of InterSystems HealthShare offers an information-sharing and analytics platform foundation designed for connected drug delivery devices, bio sensors and regulated Mobile Medical Applications (SaMD/MMA).

"Our collaboration with InterSystems brings together the information that matters - connecting pharmaceutical companies, providers, patients, and payers on the Phillips-Medisize Connected Health Platform through a unified healthcare medication record and powerful analytics that span the care continuum," said Matt Jennings, CEO and President, Phillips-Medisize.

An estimated 50 percent of medications for chronic diseases are not taken as prescribed. A 2017 Annals of Internal Medicine review reports that an estimated 125,000 deaths and 10 percent of U.S. hospitalizations are linked to patient non-adherence to prescribed medications, which results in over $290 billion dollars to U.S. healthcare annually.

Phillips-Medisize was the first company to develop an FDA-approved combination Connected Medicine solution to support patients and develop a deeper understanding of how they take their medication. They have applied this experience to the development of their 3rd Generation Platform, built on InterSystems HealthShare, for the pharmaceutical delivery environment. The platform will enable pharmaceutical companies to connect medication and diagnostic information across their drugs and therapy areas on a single, unified platform at an exceptional scale.

Data collected by connected devices using the Phillips-Medisize Connected Health Platform can be shared securely to inform the patient and their healthcare provider when medications have been administered and can be combined with data from diagnostic devices and biometric sensors to generate further insights. Pharmaceutical companies working with Phillips-Medisize will receive an exclusive, secure private cloud.

"Poor medication adherence currently yields unnecessary human suffering and significantly reduced patient health around the world. The collaboration between InterSystems and Phillips-Medisize aims to change that paradigm with a highly scalable platform to securely connect and aggregate data from rare diseases to many millions of patients across global geographies; encouraging patients in the most effective use of prescribed medications to improve outcomes," adds Don Woodlock, head of the HealthShare business unit at InterSystems.
