RDT’s portfolio of connected emergency care solutions will complement Philips’ Therapeutic Care business and strengthen its leadership position in the resuscitation and emergency care market. RDT’s acquisition will also strengthen Philips’ ability to innovate, drive digital transformation in healthcare, and enter new markets.

Philips focuses on the areas of diagnostic imaging, image-guided therapy, patient monitoring and health informatics, as well as consumer health and home care. The company offers a range of monitoring and therapeutic products and solutions to help emergency medical services, hospitals and lay responders accelerate the delivery of care at the scene. Its portfolio includes automated external defibrillators (AEDs), advanced life support monitors, and data management solutions. RDT will complement Philips’ portfolio with a product range for ambulance and emergency responders, which includes Tempus ALS, a modularized monitor and defibrillator that offers premium functionality in a smaller, lighter and more flexible package. RDT also offers highly robust and lightweight monitors equipped with telecommunication capabilities for various emergency responders.

“We are committed to investing in and expanding our resuscitation and emergency care offering, and with the acquisition of RDT we can boost our capabilities and portfolio in this vital area of healthcare,” said Arman Voskerchyan, Business Leader for Therapeutic Care at Philips. “With its focus on the pre-hospital market, RDT’s portfolio of emergency care solutions will enable Philips to grow its presence in this market, as we further build our health technology portfolio and extend the range of connected, data-driven solutions we offer to our customers.”

“We are delighted to become part of Philips and continue on our journey that began over 20 years ago,” said Graham Murphy, CEO of RDT. “Our mission is very much aligned with Philips’ own, as we are committed to transforming the delivery of care and improving patient outcomes driven by customer-focused innovation. Together, we will continue to enable pre-hospital caregivers to make a real difference to patient outcomes everywhere.”
