Partnership with Heart Foundation:

HEart Foundation

Philips and the Dutch Heart Foundation join forces to promote heart health in the Netherlands. In January 2018 they announced they are entering into a three-year strategic partnership to improve the lives of cardiovascular patients and people in high-risk groups in the Netherlands. Together, they aim to ensure that people suffering from cardiovascular disease, and those with an elevated risk of getting the disease, receive help in good time and are treated as effectively as possible. One of the key aims is to make the Netherlands a ‘6-minute cardiac arrest’ zone by extending a sustainable network of community first responders and AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) across the entire country. This will enable an estimated 2,500 lives to be saved each year. The partnership agreement was signed today by Floris Italianer, Director of the Dutch Heart Foundation, and Henk Valk, Market Leader Benelux at Philips, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

To this end, a registration campaign will be launched to register existing AEDs in the resuscitation call-out system and make them available 24/7. Furthermore, Philips and the Dutch Heart Foundation are working together to help promote the shared acquisition of Community AEDs. Attention will also be devoted to research in CardioLab – a joint partnership initiative between Delft University of Technology, Philips and the Dutch Heart Foundation that focuses on data-driven innovations in cardiology treatment.
