The data-driven prognosis: Creating predictive models to maximize clinical system availability

Medical imaging systems such as MRI and CT scanners must provide optimal clinical performance and predictable cost of ownership; downtime can be costly for health service providers. Philips Healthcare is moving from a reactive approach to data-driven, proactive maintenance, with minimal downtime of medical imaging systems by collecting and processing data from devices to identify potential problems and minimize impact on patients. This session will describe how Philips using Vertica to facilitate the new process and achieve continuous, data-driven innovation with integrated teams of SMEs, data scientists, and business stakeholders.
