• CT scan machine owner leverages data science to optimize machine usage

Statistics from a CT Scan machine

Challenge:

A global healthcare company was using its CT scan machines to conduct tens of thousands of exams. Given the operational complexity of its CT scan services, the customer was prone to incur unnecessary machine usage time, so they sought to optimize usage and heighten efficiency.

The Data Science team worked with the customer to minimize usage time by identifying training opportunities and optimize machine usage time by scheduling longer exams to increase efficiency.

Solution:

GE Digital’s Data Science team helped the customer leverage their incredible amount of machine data. In particular, the Data Science team analyzed exams per site, mining varied data that was otherwise confined to distinct organizational silos. As a result, the Data Science team worked with the customer to minimize usage time by identifying training opportunities and optimize machine usage time by scheduling longer exams to increase efficiency.

Results:

Having mined the customer’s data and identified techniques of machine optimization, the Data Science team trained the customer in the team’s scientific methods, empowering the customer to incisively use their data for system optimization going forward.
