Glassbeam Addresses Multi-Billion Dollar Mobile Imaging Services Market
Glassbeam, Inc., the premier machine data analytics company, announced today that it has successfully expanded its CLEAN™ (Clinical Engineering Analytics) Blueprint to include machine data collected from Mobile Imaging machines such as MRI and CT Scanners. According to leading industry sources, Global Mobile Imaging Services Market is slated to reach $13.3B by 2020. However, accessing operational data from remote mobile units is a huge challenge since the machines are on wheels and move from location to location based on patient demand. Glassbeam has built a unique resilient software bundled with a 4G LTE solution to solve this challenge. This solution is currently in production at leading sites such as Novant Health in Charlotte, NC.
Saturation in the fixed in-hospital imaging segment is providing additional momentum to the mobile imaging industry. On average, procedure volumes and the installed base are forecasted to grow twice as fast in the mobile imaging segment as in the fixed segments. As healthcare providers have seen the growth projections for mobile imaging explode, they are becoming more aware of the operational gap that exists in their mobile fleet for better service management and asset utilization. Glassbeam CLEAN™ Blueprint narrows this gap and is now able to integrate mobile units with a fixed fleet of imaging machines to provide one comprehensive set of dashboards with the following features:
- Aggregate all CT and MR equipment in one unified portal, regardless of location or manufacturer
- Proactively monitor & correlate machine data readings such as temperatures, magnet pressure, cryogen levels, compressor runtime etc. to predict anomalies and part failures
- Understand asset utilization by aggregating exam duration and facility operating hours
- Rank systems by most and least utilized
- Compare utilization by system, manufacturer or facility
- Track device uptime and overall service availability
“Mobile Imaging services market is in dire need of sophisticated analytics solutions,” said Frank Beltré, Operations Consultant, QDC BioMedical. “The market is ripe for change, and as an industry veteran in the healthcare provider industry, I see Glassbeam as the disruptive force that will level many playing fields with its unique solution leveraging machine data analytics and extending that to mobile fleets, thus bringing one single pane of glass for clinical and bio med engineers to manage their entire fleet.”
“Healthcare is a big focus for Glassbeam in 2018 and I am proud to see the momentum carrying over from 2017 into the new year as we expand our solution footprint,” said Puneet Pandit, Co-founder & CEO of Glassbeam. “As a result of this innovation, leading healthcare providers and Independent Services Organizations (ISOs) can now become proactive and predictive with their mobile fleet thereby recovering millions in lost revenues and increasing machine uptime.”
The expanded CLEAN™ Blueprint now provides several strategic benefits to the healthcare industry, such as minimizing machine downtime, increasing patient throughput, making optimal capital expenditure and future purchase decisions, identifying areas of misuse and user training, and avoiding repeat part exchange and unnecessary truck rolls.
