ANDOVER, Mass., March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced its participation in the American College of Cardiology Conference (ACC) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., where it will present the innovative imaging and informatics solutions that are helping clinicians deliver timely diagnoses and minimally-invasive treatments to a growing cardiovascular patient population.

"Changes to the healthcare landscape are adding pressure to the limited financial and staff resources at hospitals and medical centers and our innovations are supporting a more direct and accelerated path to quality care delivery at an affordable cost," said Gene Saragnese, CEO, Imaging Systems, Philips Healthcare. "Our goal is to ensure that actionable clinical intelligence is easily accessible wherever care decisions are made so that clinicians can quickly and confidently diagnose and treat patients."
