December 12, 2014 — Philips announced the initiation of a Consortium of health care leaders that will drive the creation of mobile ultrasound solutions, highlighted by the demonstration of a new app-based ultrasound proof-of-concept. Launched at RSNA 2014, the Consortium will consist of experts from across the health continuum, including bioengineers, radiologists, clinicians and payers who will conduct research and explore ways to extend the reach of ultrasound applications into the hands of more health care professionals as they guide patients from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.

The Consortium builds on Philips' momentum in the development of technology that opens new opportunities to connect care across the health continuum using app-based ultrasound solutions designed to interface with the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform.

Philips is actively recruiting members for the Consortium and will convene the multi-disciplinary group two times a year to gain insights to create the future of mobile ultrasound innovation. During RSNA, Philips hosted a listening room to begin the conversation on this topic.

Inaugural Consortium members include:

·       Jagat Narula, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Dean for Global Affairs, Professor of Radiology and Medicine, Cardiology, at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of Cardiovascular Imaging Program of Mount Sinai Heart at The Mount Sinai Hospital

·       Norman J. Beauchamp, M.D., M.H.S., Professor and Chair, The University of Washington Department of Radiology

·       Michael B. Stone, M.D., FACEP, Chief, Division of Emergency Ultrasound, Department of Emergency Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and assistant professor, Emergency Medicine, Harvard Medical School
