January 3, 2011 - GE Healthcare is expanding InSite OnWatch capabilities for MRI systems.
Unplanned downtime from clinical equipment can negatively affect virtually every aspect of care delivery - from patient care to staff productivity and cost control. InSite OnWatch can remotely resolve performance issues and forecast maintenance needs to reduce unplanned downtime, improving efficiencies and helping to lower the cost of care. It is available only with the company’s AssurePoint Rapid and AssurePoint Performance service offerings. The MR capabilities have now been expanded to forecast maintenance needs for coils and heat exchange system issues.
The expansion helps minimize the risk of having to reschedule patients and allows customers to plan required maintenance around their schedule. This will also improve system workflow and overall patient care.
It uses data-driven prediction tools to monitor specific system components.
