With the new Pandemic, that the healthcare industry is in crisis is beyond dispute. According to the American Hospital Association, health systems are losing 51% of their revenues, mostly due to the cancellation of elective surgeries1. While the influx of COVID-19 patients has provided some revenue, it has not nearly closed the gap.

The healthcare industry has an abiding interest in dose limits. These limits form the norm for health safety in the use of radiation for diagnostic procedures. With a pre-established exposure boundary, a patient receives radiation dose within a range of parameters during diagnostic examinations, general screening procedures, or therapy.

Could untangling patterns in utilization and examination lifecycles of the past lead us to a better understanding of the current state? Could it also help us prevent an imminent deterioration of patient care? Can a diagnostic unit transform itself from a nimble operation to a center of excellence in a healthcare network?

This post explores those questions.

3 Questions You Should Ask About Your Radiology Equipment Utilization

Most healthcare imaging facilities are not able to report metrics on their diagnostics equipment usage. From my discussions with healthcare leaders, there seems to be a common thread unifying their concern – identifying and isolating bottlenecks that are deterring optimal utilization of the big iron machines.

Despite an array of monitoring systems from CMMS to EVMs, there are wide-ranging areas of pain points that are yet to be addressed, including optimal shift operations, profiling scheduling patterns, and segmenting examination throughput.

Reimagining Radiology Departments: Shaping Digital Connections in the Diagnostic Examination Practice with Big Data Analytics

Not only does analytics from every diagnostic examination offer cost containment insights, but it can also uncover referral inconsistencies, plug scheduling delays, and describe a successful approach to evaluate a technician’s productivity.

The aim of this blog is to highlight the dynamics that are opening up innovative opportunities for radiology leaders and, to provide insights into the underlying digital connections that are creating new sources of value and how to use them.

Here’s the framework that works.

Examination Analytics that Optimizes Imaging Facility Operations

Deep machine data analytics is getting more sophisticated each year and is now becoming more pervasive in radiology facilities used as an optimization tool instead of relying on plain vanilla billing spreadsheets to get precise information on the usage of the machines, for instance, are our machines underutilized or over-utilized? If they are, then what action can I take to get the most of the MRIs or CT Scanners?

We at Glassbeam always strive to expand our portfolio of supported products by listening to our customers and understanding their areas of acute pain. As we rolled out our utilization analytics solution in Clinsights™, we spoke to various radiology groups to understand what gaps still need to be addressed. One recurring issue that came up is the ability to understand the reject ratio for technologists, particularly in the Digital Radiography department.

Onsite to Online — Save Operational Costs and Improve Patient Care

Our mission at Glassbeam is to equip our customers with the ability to predict equipment failures. Prevention is better than cure after all. And there’s that added incentive of saving dollars by proactive maintenance rather than adhoc, reactive ways.

The ground reality, however, is that not all incidents can be prevented. So what does a field service engineer do if they need to immediately react to a high priority incident?
