Truly portable ultrasound
Philips Lumify with Reacts is an app-based handheld ultrasound solution for two-way, real-time communications between healthcare professionals. It lets healthcare workers stream live ultrasound exams –facilitating real-time discussion on the fly. This collaborative platform gives caregivers access to advice and second opinions that would otherwise be obscured by physical distances.
All they need to bridge the gap to better collaboration is the Philips Lumify handheld ultrasound system, a Reacts account and web access.
From collaboration to confidence
The compact, portable ultrasound system helps medical professionals incorporate insights and advice from their peers – translating the benefits of Philips Lumify with Reacts into tangible patient care. When it comes to clinical education, these valuable insights have long-term impact.
To facilitate effective learning, students and trainers need face-to-face contact. The Lumify with Reacts collaboration platform lets teachers instruct their students in real-time from a different location. Leveraging live streaming and the solution’s built-in communication tools, students can consult with their supervisors, gain feedback, ask for advice and share their clinical cases even when they are in a different room or at a different site. Learning can happen quickly, efficiently – and virtually everywhere.
Expertise when and where it’s needed
A unique project in Peru and California, USA, underlines the vast potential of real-time ultrasound streaming. When new government guidelines came into force in Peru, stating that ER departments have access to ultrasound, the regulations came with a catch: no training was included in the plan. Cue Dr Andrea Dreyfuss from Highland Hospital in Oakland, California – and an illuminating idea. She launched an Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship program to provide remote training to physicians in Hospital Dos de Mayo in Peru’s capital Lima – beating a new path in ultrasound education.

As this case clearly shows, Philips Lumify with Reacts can make a real difference – turning real-time guidance into real-time learning. We’d love to hear your experiences using this collaborative solution or why not share your ideas on translating real-time instruction into real-time inspiration?
