Chronic conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) can be difficult to manage due to complex care plans, large care teams, and frequent readmissions.[1] Integrated with Care Orchestrator , Philips' sleep and respiratory care cloud-based management system, Trilogy Evo will help to ease this burden by allowing physicians, clinicians, and care providers to collaborate and coordinate care from hospital to home by storing their patient prescription and therapy information in a single secure location.

"Worldwide, chronic conditions are on the rise, presenting continually growing care challenges. Time and again, we have seen the positive impact that connected care can have not only on patients, but on the care teams that serve them," said John Frank, Business Leader for Sleep and Respiratory Care at Philips. "With effective treatment options, chronic respiratory conditions can be managed effectively. Trilogy Evo is our next evolution of work in connected care solutions, making therapy management for chronic conditions easier and more efficient."

Along with Trilogy Evo, Philips will showcase the latest suite of integrated innovations in sleep and respiratory care including:

  million connected sleep and respiratory patients worldwide.

  apnea. The small, lightweight device worn in a belt around the

  award-winning sleep mask line that places the hose on top of the 
  head instead of in front of the face, offering freedom of movement 
  and the ability to sleep in any position. Users and technicians can
  easily swap cushions between DreamWear mask frames. CPAP users 
  reported being more satisfied with fit and comfort of the DreamWear
  Full face mask over other leading full face masks. [4]
