Phase 2 – Move to a single-supplier model
In this phase, Maintel moved the data connections in the mobile scanners to its management. This was necessary because of very low levels of support from the incumbent supplier, exacerbated by lack of any detailed understanding of usage.
Alliance Medical’s fleet of over 40 vehicles offers immediate capacity to both NHS and private sector hospitals, providing bespoke mobile imaging services when and where needed. The vehicle is fitted with mobile technology to facilitate rapid turnaround of scans. The whole unit is mobile and can go to wherever the patient is, in any part of the UK, helping to support rural areas and community settings.
As a result, Maintel now provides monthly reports highlighting key usage, and optimises the correct tariff based on the usage which varies according to how and where the vehicles are deployed, as well as the volume of patients and scans.
Phase 3 – Optimise for the future, move to a single network
Now that Alliance Medical’s primary objectives have been met, gaining visibility and understanding of unnecessary spend, plus insights into usage patterns, the company is jointly working with Maintel to move all its connections to a single mobile network.
