Siemens Healthineers Introduces Two Education and Workforce Solutions

FlexForce Coach performance consulting helps health care organizations standardize equipment care protocols across multiple shifts and locations

FlexForce Coach performance consulting and FlexForce Tech staffing solutions, which are designed to educate and improve the workflow of radiologic and laboratory technologists

Siemens Healthineers debuted the FlexForce Coach performance consulting and FlexForce Tech staffing solutions, which are designed to educate and improve the workflow of radiologic and laboratory technologists. FlexForce Coach and FlexForce Tech can help a health care organization transform its delivery of care and improve the patient experience.

With FlexForce Coach, a Siemens Healthineers performance consultant works with the health care organization to standardize and optimize the care protocols of its imaging systems across multiple technologist work shifts and geographic locations, while also ensuring that those technologists are fully trained on – and confident with – the equipment and its advanced applications. The goal of FlexForce Coach is for technologists at the organization’s main campus and satellite locations to follow the same set of operational protocols when creating images for radiologists, thereby optimizing clinical outcomes for patients and operational outcomes for the organization.

The FlexForce Tech staffing solution addresses workforce shortages and helps to drive increased organizational efficiency by providing licensed, fully vetted, vendor-trained radiologic and laboratory technologists. These technologists have access to ongoing clinical and professional training from Siemens Healthineers to maintain industry relevance.

“Siemens Healthineers proudly introduces FlexForce Coach and FlexForce Tech as part of its expanding portfolio of education and workflow solutions,” said Nanci Wozniak, Vice President of Education and Workforce Solutions at Siemens Healthineers. “FlexForce Coach enables customers to get the most out of their imaging systems by helping to increase system performance and drive outcomes-based improvements across the organization. FlexForce Tech delivers best-in-class radiologic and laboratory technologists who are armed with the skills and training necessary to hit the ground running, avoiding prolonged ramp-up periods and better ensuring their ability to meet performance expectations.”

FlexForce Coach and FlexForce Tech contracts range from three months to several years.
