Confined quarters and loud clanging. Sound familiar? Many people facing a MRI gantry have a certain amount of medical anxiety and the need for some professional handholding. The MRI experience can induce stress in patients, demand a misuse of staff time, and create inefficiencies that Philips knows you cannot afford in today’s healthcare environment. You need to integrate technology that works for your staff and patients alike. In the best-case scenario, you need to integrate an improved patient experience in everything you do.
At Beverly Hospital’s Lahey Outpatient Center in Danvers, the forward-thinking leadership in radiology and operations found that approximately 10-15% of patients are unable to complete their necessary MRI exams using their current technology. That’s when they turned to Philips for advanced imaging that considers patient satisfaction and staff efficiencies.
