Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG) said today it inked an 11-year enterprise monitoring deal with Jackson Health System, according to Mass Device.

Through the deal, the Amsterdam-based company will provide patient monitoring services on a per-patient fee basis, which Philips touted will eliminate up-front costs and allow the health system to standardize patient monitoring across the network.

“For Jackson, patient safety is paramount and trying to balance patient safety with the rapidly changing technology landscape requires innovative business models and a true partnership that will allow us to manage our IT needs, while enhancing our quality of care. This model will assist our drive for operational and clinical excellence through best practices, continuing education, and shared accountability, allowing us to focus on what matters most – empowering our staff to deliver the best possible care to our community,” Jackson Health System CEO Carlos Migoya said in a prepared statement.

The deal will cover services for all of Jackson Health’s hospitals, urgent care centers, primary care and specialty care centers and long-term care nursing facilities, Philips said.
