Accelerate Business Outcomes with Value-Based Connected Products

Most medical device manufacturers and distributors today are able to provide basic remote service management for diagnostic, imaging, surgical, laser and hospital equipment. However, to drive more revenue from services and increase customer value, companies need to evolve to proactive, preventative remote service capabilities. For many companies, this means shifting from selling physical products to selling products as a service that deliver value-based outcomes.

What does Optimized Remote Service look like?

Service NeedsFROM (Current State of Device Support)TO (Optimized Remote Support)
Field Corrective ActionsRequires a physical visit, manual update during business hours

Minimal onsite visits, reducing cost for both manufacture and healthcare institutions

Software Updates and TraceabilityDelivered via manual process, requiring manufacturer personnel to go onsite. Traceability of software requires manual interventionAllows for remote software deployment, potentially eliminating the need to go onsite and removing the need to take the system out of service. Allows for 100% software traceability
Emergency / Security updates or patchesDifficult to efficiently deliver software security patchesProvides the vessel to deliver software patches in a cybersecure environment
Trouble-shooting and RepairCompleted over the phone with no visibility into systemProvides remote access to the system, leading to increased root cause determination and resolution prior to onsite visits
New Service Revenue StreamRemote support is not a significant revenue generating vehicle for manufacturersDevice manufacturers can differentiate with remote support and pass cost to hospitals that do no allow remote support
