TechNation Webinar Wednesday continues to share valuable knowledge with attendees. The session “Nuclear Medicine Roundtable: The Importance of Equipment Service and Maintenance” sponsored by Universal Medical (UMRi) was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
UMRi Vice President of Corporate Quality & Customer Support Services Nik Iwaniw, joined National Service Manager Craig Snodgrass and Senior Product Manager Craig Diener to discuss the importance of equipment service and maintenance. Proactics Consulting Founder Wayne Webster was the moderator for the discussion.
The webinar was different than other sessions as it featured a roundtable format where the panel of nuclear medicine experts fielded questions to help service professionals keep their equipment and departments running at peak performance and efficiency.
The webinar was a hit with more than 200 registered attendees. In post-webinar surveys, attendees shared what made the session stand out.
“The webinar was very informative and gives us a lot of ideas to better our nuclear medicine department. We also have some more background on what we need to do as a clinical engineering department to provide better service for the nuclear cameras,” biomed T. Demi wrote.
“This was a very educational webinar. I look forward to learning more about nuclear medicine in the future,” Imaging Engineer R. Pitts said.
“This was a very informative and realistic webinar. Gave advice on practical matters such as looking at the pathway for installing new cameras,” Clinical Engineering Technician M. Romano said.
“Very informative and educational webinar. I learned a lot and there were some very important guidelines to utilize as a BME to benefit the institution and the clients,” Biomed Manager C. Shaw said.
Participation in the TechNation Webinar Wednesday session “Best Practices to Improve Quality in the Supply Chain: Lower Your Supply Chain Risks and Cost of Quality” sponsored by PartsSource was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
PartsSource Vice President of Client Services Will Kinsey and UnityPoint Health Executive Director of Clinical Asset Management Greg Doherty discussed how to continually manage costs and improve performance by selecting the right supply chain partner and, more importantly, monitoring and proactively managing quality in the supply chain to reduce business risks and prevent revenue losses.
The session drew a wide audience with 174 people logging in for the live presentation and many others have already viewed a recording of the webinar on the TechNation website.
The webinar was well received as shown by the positive comments shared via a post-webinar survey.
“This will help me to understand more the importance of quality in the supply chain that affects my clients and my business as well,” Alain L. wrote in his survey.
“Great information!! I am fairly new to the business and I really appreciate the tips, advice and information,” wrote Patricia E.
“The webinar was a great representation of how the process can limit the downtime of equipment from relieving the engineer of the time it takes to search and process orders,” Phonesalo S. shared.
“We are a rural 49-bed hospital with many rural health facilities and clinics. And, we experience the exact same concerns as the big guys like Unity Health only on a smaller scale. Working with our supply chain is my lifeblood for efficient medical equipment uptime and patient safety. This webinar confirms that we are on the right track and I am armed with good questions for our new supply chain director who I’m sure is already working on these improvements. Thank you PartsSource and TechNation for the webinar,” Mike P. said.
