Philips India has unveiled IntelliSafari in Ahmedabad. Featuring a specially designed mobile van, IntelliSafari is an intensive awareness campaign through which Philips will reach out to hospitals, nursing homes, and clinics in Tier II and III cities in India and familiarize them with the latest technological advancements in healthcare, available at a low cost. The van was flagged off from Ahmedabad by Shankar Seshadri, senior director and business head-patient care & monitoring solutions and ultrasound, Philips India.

Recognizing the need for healthcare solutions for patients in Gujarat, the program is designed to meet the customers across cities and visit them with Philips products and solutions. The special vehicle showcasing state-of-the-art technologies from Philips Healthcare will travel across key cities in Gujarat for the next 30 days, before moving on to Rajasthan and other parts of India.

The mobile van is equipped with advanced cutting-edge products, designed to treat patients ranging from adults to neonates in ICU, CCU, as well as general wards and nursing care units. The wide range of display will showcase products such as:

  • Intensive care unit – Patient monitors (various categories and acuity levels based upon every need of critical outcome and budget)
  • Portable patient monitoring solutions
  • Networking
  • Cardiographs (ECG machines) – Portable and table-top models with interpretation
  • Fetal and maternal monitors
  • Defibrillators and AED devices
  • Portable ventilators and BIPAP devices

Hospitals and clinics challenged by their environment, financial circumstances, or patient demographics can select healthcare solutions that meet Philip’s standards and are great value for money. The vehicle is an experiential area fitted with patient monitoring healthcare equipment.

IntelliSafari is a program that gives healthcare providers in non-metros like Ahmedabad, the opportunity to experience Philip’s advanced expertise and technological solutions, which bring quality healthcare closer to the masses. The expert demonstrators from Philips help doctors and clinicians to validate the usability of these technologies in a real day-to-day hospital environment. IntelliSafari was launched by Philips India in July 2012 and reached several Tier-II and Tier-III cities in North India in the initial phase. The goal of the program is to bring new lifesaving technologies closer to the masses at an affordable price.
