Research from Philips highlights the need for radiology staff empowerment and workflow-focused innovation

November 5, 2019Findings underscore high rates of stress and burnout among radiology staff worldwideA Amsterdam, the Netherlands a??Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced the key findings of the Philips Radiology Staff in Focus study. This new research sheds light on the pain points that exist specifically for radiology technologists and imaging directors working in the U.S., France, Germany and the U.K., and identifies areas where technology and informatics can deliver meaningful improvements to workflow, imaging results, and patient and staff satisfaction.Across the four countries surveyed, radiology technologists and imaging directors expressed, on average, only moderate satisfaction with their jobs. With pressure on imaging departments mounting amid rising patient volumes and a global shortage of qualified staff, it is critical that health systems consider how to maintain or improve staff satisfaction to help minimize attrition.a??The subject of burnout is a major topic of discussion in radiology, but there has not been sufficient focus on understanding the specific challenges faced by radiology technologists and imaging directors,a?? said Kees Wesdorp, General Manager, Diagnostic Imaging at Philips. a??These critical stakeholders have a direct responsibility for image acquisition and quality, operations, and patient care. As we develop imaging solutions that advance radiology through improved workflow and efficiency, data integration and AI, ita??s important that we support radiology staff to provide the best to care to each patient.a??
