Alliance Medical unveils new strategy
18 December 2011
Alliance Medical, a leading independent provider of
medical imaging services in Europe, has launched a new strategy and
direction for the company, including rebranding all of its operations.
The company has developed a new strategic vision focusing on its
belief in the importance of “intelligent imaging”. It exhibited at
the recent RSNA for the first time, where it introduced the new
strategy. This proved successful, it says, with excellent
feedback from the assembled expert radiology community. Feedback
from delegates was very positive and the team gave hundreds of
demonstrations to Radiologists, key stakeholders and industry
Philippe Houssiau, Group Chief
Executive Officer of Alliance Medical, explains: “Diagnosis is the
'moment of knowing', a crucial step on the path to better
Healthcare. Our new approach helps our healthcare professionals on
the frontline to convert confusing and scattered data into
comprehensive knowledge that can improve the way they work. The result is educated decision making, providing radiologists,
clinicians and patients with improved quality of care, quick access
and vital knowledge.”
Alliance Medical has recently embarked on a number of innovative
initiatives in both Italy and the UK which use 'intelligent imaging'
to achieve specific benefits for patients and clinicians.
- Reduced dosage programmes which use innovative processes to
help imaging teams to track and measure dose levels (UK).
- The development of a new benchmarking methodology that
enables clinicians and hospital managers to “know” how they are
performing. Our tool evaluates imaging services and benchmarks
performance with equivalent facilities enabling hospitals to
identify opportunities to provide diagnostics faster, more
accurately and at lower costs for more patients (UK).
- Pathway reviews of PET/CT activities which help to improve
patient outcomes and engaging with referring clinicians to
improve the clinical pathway (UK).
- A new degree of scale and access to collaborative
radiology backed mobile mammography services with implementation
support that ensures efficient and timely reporting (Italy).
