State-of-the-art specialist syngo.via training courses to enhance UK expertise in the advanced clinical imaging solution from Siemens Healthcare
Siemens Healthcare is to open a UK based training facility for syngo®.via customers at its headquarters in Frimley, Surrey. The Siemens syngo.via Training Academy will enjoy state-of-the-art training facilities for the provision of specialist IT and Clinical Application training courses. The aim is to support Siemens’ installed customer base to enhance their experience and knowledge with the solution’s capabilities, including efficient and structured workflows, plus networking images across modalities, mobile devices or web browsers.
Over 60 syngo.via systems are currently installed in the UK alone, and the increased demand for targeted training has prompted Siemens to establish plans for a national training base. This ensures customers can have easy and cost effective access to specialist training without the need for expensive international travelling. The Siemens syngo.via Training Academy is planning to hold its first training courses in the autumn and Siemens will contact its customers with a timetable once the schedule has been finalized.
syngo.via is a multi-modality advanced visualisation solution that automatically prepares cases for reading and reporting according to condition-specific requirements. As part of the syngo family of products from Siemens Healthcare, syngo.via can either be used as a standalone device or integrated with a variety of other applications from the range, such as syngo.plaza PACS. Furthermore, the use of syngo.via Mobile Applications streamlines workflow, enhances productivity and information efficiency, allowing clinicians within and outside the hospital to securely access images and reports in a standard web browser or through mobile devices such as iPads or iPhones.
“The provision of a dedicated syngo.via Training Academy at Siemens’ UK headquarters marks a significant milestone in the lifecycle of the solution,” said Ronan Kirby, syngo Business Manager at Siemens Healthcare. “syngo.via’s capabilities for delivering improvements to productivity and efficient workflow management within hospitals empower healthcare professionals. The syngo.via training courses available at the academy will facilitate more efficient learning and use of the solution in practice, plus negate the requirement for customers to travel abroad to undergo their training.”
