Philips Utilization Services to bring more efficiency in imaging departments

At the recently held European Congress of Radiology, Royal Philips Electronics launched the ‘Philips Utilization Services’ to provide healthcare providers with superiror technology to increase efficiency in their imaging departments.

Philips Utilization Services promise to significantly improve productivity and resource utilisation of imaging centres by analysing information on key performance parameters such as idle period for scanners, interval between successive scans and turnaround time between patients.    “By providing imaging departments with detailed usage information we’re enabling them to become more time efficient, potentially resulting in better patient care and the ability to serve more patients with the same resources,” said Michiel Manuel, senior vice president and general manager for customer services, Global Sales & Service International, Philips Healthcare. “The data can be particularly valuable when deciding how and when to upgrade or transition to a new system.”

Philips Utilization Services’ will generate daily updated reports that can be used to enable hospitals to achieve quality improvements, workflow streamlining, patient throughput and optimisation of RoI. However, the service is only available on CT and MR devices manufactured by Philips.
