Innovatus Imaging sponsored the recent Webinar Wednesday presentation “Avoiding Big Failures Without Big Expenses with 4 Easy Steps” that was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. The July 22 session was presented by Matt Tomory, vice president of ultrasound center of excellence, at Innovatus Imaging
When it comes to imaging devices, little things go a long way. And not always in the right direction. A little slip of the hands could cause trauma to a TEE probe, and according to years of data from first-hand experience and researching common failures, trauma is one of the leading reasons for costly repair services. In this session, attendees were able to learn how to identify the little changes to daily routines of cross-functional teams that can have a big impact on lowering costs associated with downtime and repairs. Tomory helped them identify opportunities for improvement, establishing goals, metrics, checkpoints and how to work with end-users to take routine processes to a new level.
The session drew 116 attendees for the live presentation. The winner of a Webinar Wednesday T-shirt given away during the live webinar was Linda Wakefield of Hilo Medical Center in Hawaii. The winner of an Amazon gift card was James Clark of Valley Hospital Medical Center in Nevada.
Attendees provided feedback via a post-webinar survey that included the question, “Give us three words to describe today’s webinar?”
“Precise, Informative, Simple,” Director of Clinical Engineering S. Cruz said.
“Organized, informative and planned well,” Manager O. Dillard said on the survey.
“I found it very interesting. Some very good advice and examples of tools for managing one’s time and tasks,” D. Cormier, instructor.
“Really enjoyed Matt’s thorough review of the process and tips for reducing cost of repairs,” System Director M. Philpott.
“Guilty as charged! In my biomed department, I have been given the duty to have the TEE probes repaired. I was going about this task blindly. But Matt opened my eyes to an even greater issue, our staff is mishandling our probes. I will be calling Matt for his assistance,” said J. Clark, Biomed II.
“Matt always does a great job. Good combo of technical and customer experience to make it beneficial,” said M. Lubliner, sales representative.
