A people powered approach to operations

See what was behind the decision to enter into this ‘first of its kind’ collaboration. The risks, the trust, the hopes, and ambitions across the whole enterprise. Discover how the personal relationships and behaviours have been as key to success as the latest technology and why this is just the start of a new way of thinking and working that can be used by other hospitals.

Mackenzie Health. The first of its kind

Mackenzie Health is a regional healthcare provider that serves more than half a million people across the York Region in Southern Ontario, Canada. Mackenzie Health has a vision to create a world-class health experience, which means delivering quality, compassionate and timely patient-centered care.

What Mackenzie was looking for was a partner who could break down conventional boundaries and apply new behaviors, augmented by processes and technologies, to enable people to collaborate in completely new ways that would unlock value across the whole organization. It wasn’t just the first project of its kind for Philips; it was the first of its kind in healthcare.
