Hillrom Spotlight




Since 1915, Hillrom has become a global leader in medical technology, inspired by one mission: Every day, around the world, we enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers. Hillrom is driven by patient-centered care. Everything we do, and all our products and technologies, are designed to enhance outcomes for patients and caregivers. Hillrom’s innovations help enable earlier diagnosis and treatment, optimize surgical efficiency, and accelerate patient recovery while simplifying clinical communication and shifting care closer to home.


How is your company advancing home care medicine?

Now more than ever, the home health care industry is experiencing rapid growth. The Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® care delivery model from Hillrom has enhanced the home health care industry by increasing not only the capabilities of home health providers, but it also improves the quality of care for home-bound patients. Our portable easy-to-use Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® 700 Imager, part of the RetinaVue care delivery model, helps protect the vision of patients living with diabetes while improving risk-adjustment and quality ratings for our customers.


What is something people may not know about your company?

In 1915, Dr. Francis A. Welch and William Noah Allyn invented the first hand-held, direct illuminating ophthalmoscope to help physicians observe the retina – the only place where blood vessels are visible without cutting into the body. And today, more than one hundred years later, Hillrom is still delivering innovative solutions to help preserve vision such as the Welch Allyn® RetinaVue® 700 Imager – the world’s most advanced hand-held retinal camera.
