Optimizing purchasing decisions

A recent whitepaper from Frost and Sullivan found that healthcare facilities are over-equipped by 20-30% on average1. Addressing technology investment strategically, at the enterprise level, can help you avoid pitfalls inherent to departmental budget structures which may incentivize over-purchasing in order to preserve funding levels. A trusted technology management partner can offer guidance that will benefit your financial health.

This enables improvement of scanner settings and workflows, optimized planning of operating hours and staffing, introduction of a structured referral management or even right-sizing of the technology fleet to cope with the challenges revealed. In conclusion, the collection and analyze of real-time data facilitates efficient decision-making, optimized technology utilization, and significant savings.

Driving continuous improvement

Effective Technology Management partnerships provide ongoing monitoring and optimization of processes and performance to ensure that your technology fleet is a good match to capacity needs.
Our Value Partnerships can help you anticipate changing needs, rather than react to new conditions. We apply lean methodology to assess a given process, identify the steps in the process that produce value and reduce or eliminate any steps that don’t add value. Thus, lean principles can be applied to drive continuous improvement over the lifetime of the partnership.

Value Partnerships for Technology Management enable sustainable success in medical technology management through long-term commitments and deep understanding of every step of the technology management value chain. Value Partnerships enables both parties to work toward common goals – sharing risks and benefits if appropriate. Effective partnerships can transform care delivery by increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and improving patient care.
