After a great week at RSNA 2018 in Chicago, we want to share some of the top trends and takeaways from the show. The Glassbeam booth was buzzing throughout the five-day show. We discussed the most relevant topics and challenges for radiology technicians and clinical engineering departments with our many booth visitors.
Our vision at Glassbeam is to create extraordinary outcomes for our customers and the communities they serve by harnessing the power of connected machines. Our mission is to simplify and bring clarity to the world of complex connected machine data. In the world of healthcare, that equates to an integrated view of equipment health, performance and utilization across all medical equipment types and manufacturers.
Most would consider analytics a science. The Glassbeam team considers analytics an art of combining impermeable truth from machine logs with deep healthcare domain expertise. As we expand our penetration of the healthcare market after spending years in the data center world, where the gold standard for machine uptime was 99.999 percent, we have recognized a huge opportunity since the acceptable machine uptime for medical equipment ranged from 90 to 97 percent.
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Conference and Expo is a big stage for conversations about innovation, advancements, and security for medical equipment. Our team recently attended the 2018 expo in Long Beach, CA, and we were thrilled to mingle with like-minded industry professionals who share our interests in the advancement of medical instrumentation.
We are exhibiting at MD Expo April 4-6, a leading high tech medicine (HTM) trade show and conference. It will be held at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, 611 Commerce Street. We hope you will stop and visit us at booth #119.
