Process efficiency due to technical expertise and management

Ministry of Health, Murcia, Spain

The Murcia Ministry of Health, Spain, faced considerable challenges in operating, maintaining, and updating its fleet of imaging equipment. In 2010, the ministry entered into a 15-year Value Partnership with Siemens Healthineers. The goal was to implement new capabilities, and scale up existing ones, in the ministry’s regional hospitals. Two new hospitals were opened, and the Ministry decided to pair with a partner that could provide the latest technology and a new partnership approach to transform care delivery while maintaining quality and financial stability.
