Philips Philippines and Ayala Healthcare Holdings Inc. (AC Health) signed a memorandum of understanding to build an integrated and advanced health technology solution.
The collaboration between the two firms, that aims to provide better and seamless healthcare services to the community, will include the expansion of primary care and other specialty clinics with a total solution proposition such as provision of Medical devices, clinical workflow design, software and solutions. Part of the agreement is the necessary training that Philips will provide to AC health including its cutting-edge health technology solutions such as the Lumify ultrasound solution and sleep and respiratory care solutions.
