Guaranteed Uptime Program
Hitachi Healthcare guarantees that new Hitachi Healthcare Diagnostic Ultrasound Systems, which are normally serviced in the field, will have an equipment uptime of 99%.
Uptime is defined as: The time the equipment is available for any level of diagnostic use.
This Uptime guarantee is included at no cost during the first 12-month warranty period and is offered as an option to our full-service agreement.
The time is based on five days per week (Mon-Fri), 9 hours per day (8:00am - 5:00pm EST), and excludes Hitachi Healthcare designated holidays. Time is required for personnel to perform scheduled routine maintenance and system upgrades. Gaining access to equipment for preventative maintenance and operator errors are not considered downtime. In addition, reasonable consideration must be allowed for systems used in a mobile environment.
