Siemens Healthineers and TeamViewer are partnering to provide a new service that helps healthcare providers to perform MRI examinations if they lack qualiﬁed radiology staff. With the WeScan service, customers may seek access to a pool of skilled remote imaging technologists who help operate the MRI scanner using syngo Virtual Cockpit, the remote scanning software of Siemens Healthineers.
As Siemens Healthineers assists its customers via WeScan from outside their own IT-network, real-time data transmission across the internet and high security standards are central requirements. Therefore, Siemens Healthineers has formed a new partnership with TeamViewer using the company’s remote connectivity technology as part of the WeScan service offering because of its high security standards, powerful data transfer performance, and ease of operation.
With the interaction of TeamViewer with Siemens’ syngo Virtual Cockpit, and the global remote connectivity infrastructure of Siemens Healthineers, Smart Remote Services, it is now possible to support the scanning process on demand from outside a customer network meeting all the relevant security & performance requirements. WeScan generates high volumes of data that have to be exchanged between IT networks in real time. Additionally, TeamViewer’s Conditional Access feature enables rule-based and very granular access management and helps achieve the degree of security that’s vital in the healthcare industry.
“TeamViewer has been an important partner for many years,” says Wolfgang Heimsch, Head of Customer Services at Siemens Healthineers. “The number of use cases in a hospital environment for which we need to gain secure, high-performance access to our systems is on the rise. That makes our partnership with TeamViewer increasingly important, and we believe it offers great potential.”
Lukas Baur, EVP Solution Sales at TeamViewer, comments: “With WeScan, Siemens Healthineers is offering a highly innovative service that provides genuine added value for its customers. We’re pleased that TeamViewer can make a crucial technological contribution to this novel solution, and thus also to the further digitalization of the healthcare sector. The shortage of highly qualiﬁed employees is a huge challenge for many industries. We recognize that remote-access solutions can be a key element in overcoming this challenge, since both the employees and the devices to be operated are globally interconnected, and this means they can be leveraged much more efﬁciently now.”Back To Top
