Customer support programs are designed to maximise equipment uptime, provide proactive monitoring and remote interoperability, and optimise responsiveness and life cycle savings.

Planning, Installation and Optimisation
Accurate site planning and preparation is critical for any sized equipment installation. As such Spectrum Medical undertakes a comprehensive site survey, collecting and investigating all necessary environmental factors to ensure a smooth implementation process. Project Managers from Spectrum Medical will work closely with all key stakeholders within a customer’s organisation to ensure minimum impact to everyday workflow with regard to site-specific requirements, equipment needs, implementation timing and when systems need to go live.
This level of support does not end with installation. During the working life of your system, Spectrum Medical will ensure that the equipment and software is kept up-to-date, systems remain secure, and that the equipment is delivering the best possible patient care. After the initial training and systems implementation, software updates can be pushed remotely via Spectrum Medical’s sophisticated Vision server technology ensuring equipment remains operating on the equivalent latest software version. Additional Spectrum Medical’s Strategic Product Educators will work closely with its Quantum Informatics Partners to deliver improved patient care focused on outcomes, analytics reporting and benchmarking.
Education and Training
Spectrum Medical’s advanced education and training programs are designed with clinical relevance and evidence-based healthcare in mind. Spectrum Medical offers both onsite and proven eLearning platforms to enhance clinical best practice, provide high-quality patient care, continuous education and skills development when using any Spectrum Medical technology. Spectrum Medical utilises a web-based electronic Learning Management System (or Quantum eLearning) to streamline its training program. Each Spectrum Medical module, product or technology has its own dedicated online learning course. The content of each course is internally designed to ensure your product knowledge is relevant and up to date. The courses are routinely updated in-conjunction with new software functionality and/or device capability enhancements. Spectrum Medical’s education resources can be integrated into any existing training program and are intended to complement your current training practice with access day or night, on any device, from any location with an internet connection.
With an absolute dedication to customer support and a total solutions approach to a long-term partnership Spectrum Medical is proud to present its annual support plan, Sentinel Total Care.
