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.

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.

Off late at my work which currently involves moving our platform code from monolithic to microservices architecture, I have come to realize that there is a lot of boilerplate code that not only needs to be implemented in every other service but also involves maintenance pertaining to tribal knowledge within the team. This means that there isn't any standard way of implementing a service, raising the possibility of a lot of code duplication, thereby resulting in a maintenance nightmare.

But what messages are they transmitting? What’s the objective?

Typical messages that are getting collected include information on wear and tear of mechanical parts, peak load times, usages of interactive controls, activation of alarms and safety thresholds, and so on.
