A focus upon usability

The successful implementation of a new streamlined CT scanner operating workflow with the Siemens Healthineers SOMATOM go. platform is the result of a collaborative effort of our researchers, user experience experts and user interface and product designers. We used futureNOW sessions with techs, doctors and hospital managers
to detect the pain-points of the current setup and together we then developed and prototyped possible solutions and tested them in short re-enactments. Our research revealed that the highest potential to increase throughput, lower costs and improve care lies in the workflow – so we re-thought it.

A streamlined exam setup

The new workflow includes a wireless remote, a tablet and a gantry mounted camera to reduce walking ways for the tech. By using the unique niche concept, for example , customers can position the console in the same room as the scanner. Thus, they can stay longer with their patients and save even more steps. As a real plug-and-play solution SOMATOM go. offers a wide range of configurations to accommodate different needs and budgets. The entire workflow is centered around the patient table. A new mechanical construction helped to achieve a soft and light look.
It also got more practical with the side-mounted movable storage boxes. A top-mounted camera ensures that the patient is never out of frame.Thanks to the cost-efficient design of SOMATOM go. we help to make high end medical treatment available to more patients and to increase the quality of care at the same time. The gantry combines a super-efficient layout with durability, great serviceability and an appealing, dynamic and positive design – in line with the Siemens Healthineers design language.
