Signify Premium Insight: Establishing a Commanding Position
Published: June 14, 2022
Hospitals are more connected than ever before. Hardware across hospital networks is increasingly being linked by software, while individual IT systems and separate departments are being joined together, helping doctors and other hospital professionals to reap the benefits of improved access to patient information and advanced technology.
However, some vendors are also increasingly offering tools that can help providers maximise the benefits of these more connected software solutions, supporting operational and clinical decision-making. Such tools look to bring together fleet management solutions for imaging modalities and imaging workflow analytics and business intelligence, for example, along with patient information from the EHR, and aim to make the data more useful to hospitals using the systems. This could help hospitals improve their hardware utilisation, reduce no-shows for appointments, and improve efficiency, among other benefits.
