Sponsored by GE Healthcare

GE Healthcare continues to deliver innovative ways to meet customers’ needs. Digital Expert is one of the new ways the company is providing innovative solutions for education and training on their LOGIQ™, Vivid™, and Voluson™ ultrasound equipment.

Digital Expert by GE Healthcare enables live and face-to-face interactive training sessions. Utilizing a mobile tablet, Digital Expert can deliver instructor-led clinical training virtually. This personalized approach to training is tailored to the user’s own skill level and provided at their pace while taking into consideration when it is most convenient. The flexibility to schedule when it’s most convenient for them and their department can help decrease disruption to their patient scanning schedule thereby helping to avoid related revenue loss. Digital Expert can help ensure that users are getting the most out of their capital investment by ensuring that their staff knows how to use equipment to its potential.

Digital Expert also facilitates the ability for more ongoing training which is essential to advanced usage of functions and features built within the ultrasound console. Through ongoing training and education with Digital Expert, Physicians and Sonographers can elevate their skills and techniques by becoming advanced users at their convenience. By using Digital Expert, they can learn new ways to enhance patient experience by understanding how to better use their GE equipment. This is also a key tool for departments to manage turnover and provides individuals the ability to control their own educational needs.

Personalized approach to learning

With Digital Expert, ultrasound users get one-on-one access to clinical trainers that can help them maximize the full potential of their GE ultrasound equipment. Because it’s one-on-one, the instructors can deliver a personalized experience by identifying a user’s skill level and ensure they get the proper and needed level of content. Whether users have questions about advanced features or need a refresher on the basics, GE Healthcare’s clinical trainers are there to help.

Hands-on experience

Each 30 to 60 minute session is a mix of didactic plus hands-on learning and GE’s instructors are able to view the primary display allowing them to understand what the student is seeing. This provides the ability for users to learn on their equipment and in their department or environment. Ultrasound users can unlock the true capability of their system and its key features, especially on newer platforms.

Flexible and convenient solution

Departments are busy, that’s why Digital Expert offers next-day scheduling and in some cases, scheduling within two hours. It also provides flexible cancellations if needed. And the 30-60 minute Digital Expert training sessions ensure that learning does not disrupt patient scanning or staff’s personal schedule.

Be more, do more

The result of GE Healthcare Digital Expert is an elevated ultrasound experience for all users.

Optimizing the potential of ultrasound equipment often requires significant time to learn proper usage and techniques. Digital Expert helps to expedite this process by connecting individuals to one of the clinical applications training experts.

“With Digital Expert, customers can choose the content, timing and trainer best suited to accelerate their ultrasound training. We provide the tablet and the support to get them setup. They have access to our comprehensive set of courses. The clinical application experts, with an average of more than 20 years of experience, are there to help them select the courses based on their skill level and expertise,” according to GE Healthcare.
