The way in which medical replacement parts are obtained may not be on the radar of most hospital administrators. Yet, with virtually every other area of their facilities already benefiting from external partnerships and technology innovation, this often overlooked clinical engineering pursuit represents a significant opportunity to contain costs, enhance productivity and improve outcomes.
Rather than requiring clinical engineers to source parts with no automated means of cost or quality comparison, healthcare providers must keep their technicians focused on equipment repairs and preventative maintenance. How? Offer a high-quality, vetted supply chain; provide access to reliable, everyday pricing; and make procuring parts a simple, one-stop shopping experience.
