Conquest Imaging Expands SIMPLIFY Program

Conquest Imaging has announced the expansion of SIMPLIFY, Conquest Imaging’s transducer repair program, featuring added TEE probe repair capabilities, flat rate repair pricing and a mobile probe testing program. The entire SIMPLIFY program is overseen by Vice President of Technical Operations Bob Broschart, a 30-year veteran in the ultrasound industry.

Conquest Imaging, in addition to 3D/4D and standard probe repair, added many transesophageal (TEE) models to its repair capabilities list including:

  • Philips X7-2T
  • Philips X8-2T
  • GE 6T
  • GE 6VT-D
  • Siemens V5MS

SIMPLIFY’s flat rate repair pricing enables same-day repair ordering. With the upfront pricing for minor, major and enhanced repairs, customers can provide payment and receive a return authorization the same day and their exchange or loaner probe the following business day.

“Our onsite mobile probe testing is a revolutionary way of providing true probe management as a service to our customers that will save them tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars in their probe spend,” Broschart said. “We go in, evaluate their entire probe inventory and assess the state of each probe. Then, we begin planning and educating our customer on probe safety, wear-and-tear and why it matters. We partner with them to raise the quality of their inventory and reduce incidents, damage and replacements through better probe care.”

The program includes periodic onsite evaluations and assessments, free training and repair scheduling. As a result, contract customers will experience significant probe spend savings while extending the life of each probe.

“This enhancement of probe repair options and services is part of Conquest Imaging’s ongoing effort to strategically improve and expand ultrasound offerings, increasing the level of efficiency, excellence and savings to health care facilities and systems. SIMPLIFY continues to deliver free probe evaluations, exchanges, loaners and straight repairs,” according to a press release.
