Helping connect healthcare experts and increasing the usability of the wealth of medical imaging data – that’s the goal of “teamplay,”the new solution from Siemens Healthcare. This cloud-based network1—which Siemens will display at the 100th Scientific Assembly & Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 30 – Dec. 5th in Chicago—the helps link hospitals and healthcare experts to provide them with the ability to exchange data and pool their knowledge. Within hospitals, “teamplay” makes it possible to evaluate the extensive amount of information generated by imaging devices – e.g. scanner capacity utilization, examination times or radiation doses – and to compare the numbers against in-house and third-party reference values. This means imaging devices can be analyzed in close to real time and their operation optimized based on the results, right down to individual device level. Because “teamplay” runs on tablets, laptops and desktop PCsmembers of the network have flexible access to the information, subject to the appropriate authorization and security measures.
