Zwanger-Pesiri's business model rests on providing radiology services that meet the highest professional standards while also offering superb, personalized customer service.

This paper is co-authored by Robert Day, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology. It consists of a detailed analysis of how Zwanger-Pesiri succeeded in this effort, with personal insights from their senior management and practical examples of best practices and impactful innovations.

This thought leadership paper is part of the Siemens Healthineers Insights Series. It provides ideas and practical solutions on 'Achieving operational excellence'.

  • The key to personalized service is people. Employees who know what the company is trying to achieve and understand how their own efforts contribute to this success.
  • Workforce productivity is raised to peak levels not simply by demanding that people work longer or harder, but by inspiring them to work with more passion, harnessing their creativity, and giving them a sense of ownership.
  • If employees believe they are part of a superior team and raise their own performance to that level, the benefits for patients - and for the organization - follow.
