The Story of Neolook Solutions
How did we get here?
Our journey starts in Philips, 2016-2017. We developed a novel solution for the Fatebenefratelli Hospital on the Tiberine island in the historic center or Rome, Italy. At the time it was a relatively small project to renovate an entire neonatal intensive care unit. But working for premature babies got everybody motivated and excited to give the best.
Born and bred in the hospital
It started by an ask of the neonatologists: as the hospital stepped up and takes a more prominent role in the region, smaller neonatal intensive care departments closed down.
But now parents came from long distances even outside Rome. Having the department open 24/7 wasn’t enough. Because parents couldn’t always come from far. So the docters asked if we could bridge the gap in some innovative way. We took the Screen2Screen technology out of Philips Research to apply it on this hospital problem. Interviewing parents what they needed and when and how exactly they longed to see their child and felt they needed to connect.
We learned to listen to the people on the floor. Walk the floor ourselves and co-create together to make meaningful solutions.
The opening of the NICU in made national TV news in Italy. And gave a two-page background story in the Dutch top tier1 newspaper NRC Handelsblad.
From Philips venture to independent spin-out
The entire project fitted well with Philips aims to become a health technology company. More specifically to become a solutions company. The project became a global Philips venture for two years in 2018 and 2019 before spinning out. Why did we spin out in the end? Philips focussed ever more on adults and we had to find the best way forward for the venture for children. With the help of great minds in Philips it made sense to serve the small NICUs and PICUs not from the big Philips. But from a dedicated, specialized company.
