The introduction of these two sizes follows the release of the 14" x 17" which has been on the market for a year.

“Those new sizes give our customers the very best durability in the industry, very best image quality, dose savings and very best analytics because the detectors have embedded sensors in them that now give us more data to generate these performance dashboards for customers,” David Widmann, president and CEO of Konica Minolta, told HCB News. “That’s what’s being launched, ... that whole digital engine.”

The panels can be diagnosed by users when dropped and are also available with the company’s U-arm systems.

The new sizes will be available in January 2018.

AeroRemote Insights:

AeroRemote Insights enables customers to monitor and improve workflow, accuracy and uptime with easy-to-use data analytics available from any computer or mobile device.

The tool provides information on productivity, user performance and AeroDR system health, allowing managers to assess the quality of work by technologists and in exam rooms, reduce issues such as rejected image and repeat exam rates, and ensure optimal calibration and performance of their Aero DR systems.

“If you can reduce the number of rejected images, that means you’re spending less time on the exams,” Steven Eisner, senior product manager of services at Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, told HCB News. “You can see more patients. Wait times are reduced for the patients. Dose is reduced for the patients if you can avoid a redo of an image. And you can see which technologists are doing well and which ones aren’t. You can figure out the right kind of training necessary. If you can get everyone working efficiently, you’re definitely going to have a more productive and more cost effective department.”

It also allows for comparisons of quality among departments and hospitals across the industry.

The tool is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018.

Exa Platform:

The Exa Enterprise Imaging solution is now equipped with new functionalities including performance dashboards for measuring daily exam volume, radiologist performance, and referring physicians’ ordering preferences. The addition of this feature enables administrators and department managers to create customized reports with information that is necessary for the well-being of their organizations.

Other enhancements are non-DICOM data viewing capabilities and a customized workflow engine.

The aim of these additional features is to further help physicians and providers succeed in value-based health care.
