Smart Subscription

A CT that keeps getting better

Every patient you see expects you to care for them with the latest in healthcare technology.

While the pace of CT innovation is as fast as it’s ever been, varying priorities within healthcare systems are making it harder for you to find the capital to keep up. Introducing Smart Subscription, the industry’s first subscription-based service for CT applications. Smart Subscription helps solve the oldest challenge with buying imaging equipment: every time you buy a new system, you’re locked in to its capabilities even as new capabilities become available. Smart Subscription overcomes this challenge by making it possible to automatically keep your entire fleet of CT systems up to date.

How is your CT life cycle treating you?

Healthcare providers are holding on to their CT systems for longer and at the same time, fewer providers are able to upgrade their equipment over its life span. This results in unwanted variation in CT scanners and capabilities across your fleet, which creates inefficiencies like extra training for your staff, additional protocol work and difficulties in scheduling. This “buy, use, replace” acquisition model is broken. We’ve already seen this play out in consumer technology where manufacturers removed the connection between hardware and software. Now, brand new features are automatically uploaded to our devices overnight. We applied this same thinking to CT technology with Smart Subscription.

A CT that’s always improving

Smart Subscription helps you avoid obsolescence by providing the latest upgrades and updates to your CT capabilities as soon as they’re available. Instead of a CT that starts to “fall behind” technologically from the time you order it, you get a CT that’s always getting better.

See your entire fleet in a new light

The only thing better than guaranteeing one of your CT systems has the latest applications, is guaranteeing your entire fleet does. With Smart Subscription, your CT capabilities and protocols can be universal across your entire fleet, which can significantly reduce the amount of time spent managing multiple sets of protocols across different CT systems. It also means every CT feels like the same CT. No matter where your technologists are scheduled to work, they don’t have to question whether they know which protocol they need to do their job. Imagine the savings you’ll have when your team can focus on a single set of capabilities.

  • The same capabilities at all your sites
  • One set of capabilities to learn, operate and read

How it works

We’ve made it effortless to stay current

You shouldn’t have to wait for the release of a new CT to access the latest applications. We think it’s time to break that connection. Manufacturers of consumer technologies have made it possible to keep the model you already have and still get the same operating system upgrade that’s on the latest model. Oftentimes, overnight. Smart Subscription works off of the same principle. Your CT applications are no longer tied to the physical hardware. Smart Subscription takes them all up into the cloud and automatically updates them in the background. You can start every day, on any CT, knowing you’ll be working with the latest clinical applications.
