Medical Equipment & Procurement Consulting
Our medical equipment planning & procurement services encompass the assessment, planning, procurement assistance, and management guidelines for a healthcare organization’s medical technology requirements.
The health care industry is experiencing a new era in cost containment. In the past, little attention was given to the financial impact of medical equipment related decisions. In this new health care environment, “state-of-the-art” is no longer sufficient as planning criteria for selecting new technology. For a technology to be appropriate, it must address the needs for efficiency, cost-effectiveness and productivity thus enhancing the quality of patient care.
Today hospitals are in an extremely competitive arena, putting additional emphasis on a technology’s marketability. Medical devices can easily account from 30% to 50% of the overall project cost. Moreover, this asset component continues to change and evolve at an unprecedented pace. As a result, it’s planning and management has become a significant challenge. It is critical to implement a formal, objective and comprehensive process to manage and control the equipment planning process.
