Kodak Strives to Boost Revenue, Productivity While Reducing Waste

Eastman Kodak Co.’s Health Group recently launched KODAK Business Diagnostics Services, focused consulting services that enable healthcare facilities to deliver improved productivity, revenue gains and reduced waste when implementing new digital imaging technologies, including picture archiving and communications systems (PACS).
As part of this new service, Kodak engineers will collect performance and productivity data through analysis of a healthcare provider’s environment and compare these statistics to similar facilities within a proprietary national database of more than 200 healthcare institutions. The Kodak team will then use lean-methodology processes to make recommendations to help improve performance.
“Industry consultants report more than half of facilities that installed PACS over the last three years have not realized projected productivity and revenue gains,” said Diana Nole, general manager, Business Strategy, Product Management and Marketing, Kodak’s Health Group. “This indicates the need for consulting services like KODAK Business Diagnostic Services that target inefficiencies and identify process improvements not only within the radiology department, but also in the delivery of imaging services to clinicians, staff and other users.”
