 The Unifi Enterprise platform is a comprehensive suite of software solutions that leverages data analytics to optimize the performance of capital equipment and reduce interruptions to patient care by laying a foundation for continued image quality improvement and corrective actions. Unifi Analytics is at the core of the platform, serving as a business intelligence tool for healthcare facilities that allows them to manage their mammography devices, monitor technologist performance, and prevent unanticipated downtime via a predictive tube replacement algorithm.

“Since integrating Unifi EQUIP, our technologists and radiologists have experienced an increase in efficiency in managing, tracking and documenting our clients’ clinical images,” said Denise Hodges, Imaging Center Coordinator, Self Regional Healthcare. “In today’s healthcare landscape, facilities and clinicians are pressured to deliver a high quality of care while identifying cost savings and efficiencies. The entire Unifi Enterprise platform represents a comprehensive solution that allows us to operate efficiently while delivering the best possible care.”
