Improving imaging outcomes through a better patient experience

 

The experience and comfort of patients in the imaging suite can have a real and tangible impact on multiple areas of the department. Patient movement, for example, can have a domino effect: non-diagnostic-quality images lead to re-scanning; re-scans delay patient diagnosis and hamper department throughput; and both staff and patient incur stress in the process.

 

By focusing on the people behind the images, we aim to improve the quality of imaging outcomes. Specially designed equipment that makes procedures more comfortable and pleasant for the patient, analytics that properly manage radiation exposure, and advanced technologies that help deliver the right image the first time: All help give patients a more positive feeling about their care and treatment and empower staff to put patients first.

Happy staff, happy patient: Empowering radiology staff for a better patient experience


Amber Pokorney, Chief Research MRI Technologist at Phoenix Children’s Hospital reflects on the demands radiology technologists must comply with in the current healthcare environment and solutions to address them.

 

  • Staying up-to-date on the latest technology while acquiring the right diagnostic-quality images in a timely manner
  • Understanding the role of the technologist in helping patients have a positive imaging experience
  • The potential of "smart” clinical applications that can assist in delivering reproducible planning

Putting Patient Comfort First: A New Perspective on Improving Imaging Outcomes


Dr. Peter W. Curatolo, Medical Director of MRI Services at Beverly Hospital, Lahey Health, describes how he has seen implementation of the Philips Ambient Experience and MR In-bore Solution in his imaging service:  

 

  • Enhance patient and staff experience
  • Reduce cancellations and improve workflow efficiency
  • Expand patient use of other hospital services, creating a trickledown effect that benefits the greater health system. 

The patient experience by the numbers

 

See how factors like patient anxiety, comfort and stress impact your ability to get the right image – and a confident diagnosis –  the first time.
