How to Maximize Ultrasound Performance at Your Facility

 For modern medical facilities, maintaining an entire fleet of ultrasound equipment can be a time-consuming, costly undertaking. Sourcing ultrasound systems, making sure each system is in working order, keeping track of ultrasound transducers, performing the necessary routine maintenance and arranging for occasional repairs not only takes away from operating budgets but it also cuts into valuable time that could be used to handle more cases. To maximize the efficiency of ultrasound systems in your facility, OpenMarkets has partnered with Avante Health Solutions to provide comprehensive services from capital equipment, to service and repairs, parts, and training.

Preventive Maintenance, Service, and Repair

When an equipment problem arises at your facility, you need trained ultrasound technicians ready to be onsite and get you back up and running. But proper equipment service isn’t just about emergency turnarounds. Regularly scheduled preventive maintenance is a key step in keeping ultrasound equipment in top shape, stopping many problems before they arise. OpenMarkets can help Imaging facilities stay ahead by organizing connections with Avante for all service and repair needs.

Avante partners with facilities across the United States to deliver customized ultrasound service solutions. Service contracts vary from preventive maintenance only to full, comprehensive coverage. Avante field service engineers are stationed throughout the country and are factory trained to be able to assess and solve any equipment issue at your facility.

Fast, Simplified Transducer Repair

Did you know that one in four ultrasound transducers needs some sort of repair? These devices undergo daily use and are in direct contact with patients, causing most ultrasound probes to eventually exhibit signs of wear and tear. To help facilities keep their ultrasound transducers in proper working order, Avante provides industry-leading probe repair services. Avante can diagnose your current probe, make needed repairs, and then deliver a repaired probe to you in as few as three days, at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new probe. Our innovative HotSwap™ program simplifies the process by allowing you to exchange your defective probe for the repair price.
