Online documentation of equipment maintenance and performance.

Abstract

A radiology department or imaging center relies on the proper operation of its equipment. This is accomplished through appropriate maintenance and independent medical physics monitoring. These activities represent an expensive but necessary effort to protect the original investment. Effective management requires accurate, timely, and useful documentation. The Georgia Regents Medical Center Department of Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Interventional Radiology developed a comprehensive database encompassing both maintenance and monitoring activities associated with imaging equipment. This database is accessible throughout the facility via a website, providing a central hub for information distribution and access. The radiology engineering supervisor and quality control technologist make extensive use of this system and were key to its implementation and ongoing improvement.
