Webinar Wednesday delivered insights for HTM professionals with the presentation “Controlling the Clock in X-ray Preventative Maintenance” by RTI Electronics AB Global Product Manager Fredrik Brorson. Attendees are also eligible to pick up 1 credit from the ACI.
In the webinar, Brorson discussed how HTM professionals can be more efficient and productive in maintaining and repairing X-ray assets in today’s highly regulated environment.
He discussed the effect tight budgets are having on health care facilities and the pressure it places on imaging service departments to maximize the uptime of imaging equipment. He talked about the desire for a faster response and shorter service time in today’s health care environment.
In regards to the efficient servicing of imaging equipment, Brorson suggested the utilization of the best resources available. He said key elements to consider are a fast response time, intimate knowledge of the equipment history, the physical environment of the device, in-depth technical knowledge and more.
He also discussed what he termed “OEM Protectionism” and how to bypass some restrictions.
Brorson then discussed servicing X-ray equipment/QA and calibration as he shared insights and tips. He talked about leveraging the experience and knowledge of in-house HTM professionals in regards to diagnostic imaging devices. He also covered how big data will play a role in the future.
The webinar concluded with a question-and-answer session.
