Philips settles with the US for failure to provide information
Philips has reached a $ 4.2 million settlement for failing to notify the U.S. military of changes the company made to patient monitors.
The MP2 patient monitors were sold to the U.S. Air Force, Air Force, Navy, and the logistics branch of the U.S. Defense.
In order to be able to actually use the monitors, it must be tested whether the monitors also function properly when used during air transport. Those tests were done, but after those tests, Philips made changes to the devices.
Those changes were not reported to the U.S. Department of defense when they should have. The monitors should have been tested again. The health technology company must therefore pay 4.2 million euros to the United States.
