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.
You might be asking…
How do I reduce my field service costs?
How can I improve customer retention and satisfaction?
How do I keep software on my medical device up to date?
How do I bring both old and new assets onto my service platform?

What does Optimized Remote Service look like?
|Service Needs||FROM (Current State of Device Support)||TO (Optimized Remote Support)|
|Field Corrective Actions||Requires a physical visit, manual update during business hours|
Minimal onsite visits, reducing cost for both manufacture and healthcare institutions
|Software Updates and Traceability||Delivered via manual process, requiring manufacturer personnel to go onsite. Traceability of software requires manual intervention||Allows 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 patches||Difficult to efficiently deliver software security patches||Provides the vessel to deliver software patches in a cybersecure environment|
|Trouble-shooting and Repair||Completed over the phone with no visibility into system||Provides remote access to the system, leading to increased root cause determination and resolution prior to onsite visits|
|New Service Revenue Stream||Remote support is not a significant revenue generating vehicle for manufacturers||Device manufacturers can differentiate with remote support and pass cost to hospitals that do no allow remote support|
