At RSNA 2018, Konica Minolta will be introducing new advances for its AeroRemote platform, namely a comprehensive performance dashboard for AeroDR Wireless Flat Panel Detector Systems that automatically collects and aggregates AeroDR system health and usage data into simple yet powerful analytical views. The enhanced AeroRemote Insights streamlines navigation through multiple dashboards with a customer-inspired application for analyzing performance by anatomical region. This anatomical map uses color coding to provide instant indications of performance metrics, guiding managers quickly to areas of interest.
“AeroRemote Insights represents Konica Minolta’s continuing investment in the development of advanced data analytics, deployed through the Internet of Things, by refining analytic tools that increase the value of conventional hardware and software solutions,” says Steven Eisner, Senior Product Manager at Konica Minolta.
With AeroRemote Insights, managers can evaluate department, system or technologist performance from any AeroDR device by reviewing details such as image reject rates and reasons, dose indices, exam counts and DR panel impact events. This data is easily filtered by date or exam type, further helping managers pinpoint where improvements can be made.
Included with AeroRemote Insights are Live Notifications that alert managers and support staff when a DR panel has been accidentally bumped or dropped. At the same time, the actual AeroDR panel user is prompted to run a 30-second diagnostic check to ensure the DR panel is functioning. Results are emailed to all parties, including the Konica Minolta Customer Care Center, so they can respond accordingly. Leveraging Internet of Things technology in this way alerts users to potentially catastrophic events, but also encourages more careful handling of these expensive components.
“With AeroRemote Insights, we continue to help customers proactively monitor our systems and support our service teams in gathering data, predicting appropriate responses and solving common issues,” says Kevin Chlopecki, Vice President of Service Operations.
