In Part 1 of this blog series, I set the stage on the debate on who owns the machine data generated by medical devices such as CT, MRI, and so on. In Part 2 of this blog, I outlined an approach and my perspective on how this debate is being resolved between Providers and OEMs.
For the first time in the Healthcare industry, two distinctly different groups in a healthcare provider organization come under the eye of a single pane of glass. The roles are Clinical Engineering practitioners responsible for machine uptime and other is the Radiology and Imaging groups responsible for maximizing machine utilization and therefore revenues. The common goal is always improving patient care and clinical outcomes for the benefits of its customers.
Next week, Glassbeam is gearing up to participate at AMMI Exchange 2019 conference in Columbus, Ohio. The event promises fantastic insights into the concerns and questions of Radiology and Clinical Engineering professionals and some great line up of talks from all walks of Healthcare Technology Management (HTM).
In Part 1 of this blog series, I set the stage to understand who owns the machine data generated by medical devices such as CT, MRI, and so on. We also discussed how the restrictions on device data evolved over time and the implications on healthcare providers’ maintenance programs.
Welcome to the first newsletter of 2019! As always, we present some of the key milestones we have achieved last quarter. This quarterly recap highlights the ways we are bringing all our business functions to make a positive impact on our customers and our partner ecosystem.
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.
As Glassbeam expands its sales into the healthcare provider market, we have found an unmet need for Radiology groups to automate their asset utilization reporting. A key business driver is their quest to enhance patient care by reducing patient revisits and reschedules, understanding physician referral leakage and maximizing machine utilization.
