We support in this period of global uncertainty
Siemens Healthineers wants to support you as partners and customers, employees' friends and families in order to "flatten the curve" and support Healthcare systems in this period of time. With social distancing being seen as one of the most influential measures to do this, Healthineers’ teams have worked together in order to find a way in which we can support in this endeavor by staying operational and keeping up your patient throughput.
For this we provide increased global access to our remote scanning assistance technology, in hopes to bring you some relief.
How remote scanning assistance can help for CT, MRI & PET
syngo Virtual Cockpit is a software for remote scanning assistance. It enables you to provide comprehensive scanning assistance to imaging personnel – regardless of their physical location5. Even from home with a simple Laptop. In cases requiring advanced skills and recourses, technologists can always call on an expert for live support.
*Operating under applicable federal, state, and local laws as to the specific imaging modality(ies), including radiation and contrast
Measures we can sustainably support
Even in times of staff shortage and high workloads, you can provide your examinations at all your locations – because your experts are available everywhere. Patients can be provided access to nearby scanner sites and they can be scheduled quickly with shorter wait time.
