Philips Healthcare Ambient Experience RSNA 2012

The Philips Healthcare Ambient Experience integrates architecture, design and enabling technologies, such as dynamic lighting and sound, to allow patients and staff to personalize their environment to create a relaxing atmosphere. Patients are able to select room themes and sounds, empowering them to be involved in their own care. Concurrently, Philips’ designers take special care to address the needs of the clinical staff to make their workplace efficient and pleasant.

The Ambient Experience uptake room can help reduce patient anxiety, improve workflow and patient care. The uptake room solution is a stylishly designed ceiling unit that generates specifically created mood settings with practical procedure light and audio settings for an excellent staff working environment. It transforms a standard uptake room into one that changes according to the various workflow steps. In this way, it fully supports the tasks performed by staff and reduces patient anxiety at the same time.

The solution includes:

  • Practical procedure light and audio settings for an excellent staff working environment
  • Specific task light to facilitate FDG (a radiopharmaceutical used in medical imaging) injection
  • Active relaxation video content and light settings – with emphasis on the first 25 minutes of the uptake period
