Glassbeam Signs up Browns Medical Imaging as a Strategic Partner for Healthcare Market
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Glassbeam, Inc., the premier machine data analytics company, announced today it has signed up Browns Medical Imaging (BMI) as a strategic partner and reseller for healthcare market. BMI is one of the largest independently owned medical imaging distributors selling and servicing medical imaging equipment for over 25 years in the US. With Glassbeam partnership, BMI will have a new competitive edge with advanced analytics powered by Glassbeam on complex machine data collected from connected machines in clinical and biomedical environments. It will help immediately expand BMI's services portfolio on all GE and Siemens CT and MRI scanners from simple Time and Materials support to full comprehensive coverage including advanced offerings for proactive and predictive analytics.
"In the dynamic world of increased health care costs, providers are increasingly looking at Independent Service Organizations (ISOs) to help cut expenses and provide comprehensive support and service for its entire fleet," said Chad Brown, President and CEO at BMI. "Glassbeam analytics is a complete game changer for ISOs, and I am excited to see that BMI will now be able to break new grounds and better compete in the market to provide proactive and predictive analytics for our growing list of customers."
In a recently published report by Harbor Research titled "Machine Data Analytics Drives Innovation for Healthcare Market", a key trend highlighted is a growing number of hospital networks looking for new and less expensive ways to support their installed equipment to avoid paying expensive OEM service contracts. This has led to the growth in ISO industries that are providing equipment support expertise on a more regional and local basis to hospitals. However, ISOs still lack the analytics and software capabilities to bring all disparate information from machine logs and transaction systems into one holistic application. That is where Glassbeam solution comes to play as a strategic enabler for the ISO industry.
"Healthcare is an extremely complicated market, and Glassbeam has been able to enter this market and overcome machine data analytics challenges that OEMs, ISOs, and in-house solutions simply cannot address," said John Ferraro, Vice President Sales, Glassbeam. "Browns Medical Imaging brings over 25 years of medical imaging experience, and as part of our partnership, I am thrilled to be working with them in unison to further expand our software platform to additional modalities and metrics."
Glassbeam is the premier machine data analytics company bringing structure and meaning to complex data generated from any connected machine in the Industrial IoT industry. Funded by several ultra-high net worth investors, Glassbeam's next generation cloud-based platform is designed to transform and analyze multi-structured data, delivering powerful solutions on customer support and product intelligence for companies such as IBM, Dell EMC, Novant Health, and Dimension Data.
