SmartWorkflow solutions in MR

Philips SmartWorkflow

The impact of workflow on MR departments


The increasing use of MR to diagnose a variety of conditions and illnesses has led to demands for greater efficiency. Too often, it seems that productivity is at odds with giving patients the time and attention they desire. SmartWorkflow provides an end-to-end workflow solution supporting a better patient and staff experience, resulting in patient-centered productivity.

SmartWorkflow in the exam room

Allow your staff to focus less on technology, and fully engage with patients. By reducing and simplifying the number of steps needed for patient preparation, even new operators who have never worked with the scanner can proceed with confidence. SmartWorkflow guides and coaches where required, and automates where possible achieving high productivity while enabling your staff to focus on patients.
