Healthcare without IT is impossible these days, as it plays a critical role in patient care, ADT, revenue cycle, and post discharge care. IV pumps, patient monitors Rx systems all intercommunicate with each other, as well as, EHR and other mission critical IT software systems. This trend is set to continue, and clinical devices and IT will be linked even more closely in the future. The IT and clinical engineering departments are becoming one homogenous department with shared challenges of uptime, data integrity and security.
By implementing efficient technology management, it is possible to improve patient care while reducing overall costs. CHG-MERIDIAN can assess your current installed base of IT, diagnostic imaging, clinical and surgical assets and assist in their replacement.
What is the utilization of the asset? Where is it located? Is it owned, leased, or rented? How much are you paying in are maintenance costs? Do you have rhythm and rigor to IT and medical device technology refresh? Or, do you have fully depreciated assets on your books well past their useful lives that are costing more to maintain, and putting patients at risk?
We analyze, recommend, and assist in:
Our approach preserves capital and increases cash flow and asset utilization.
You will benefit from leaner processes, reduced complexity, greater transparency, and lower administrative expenses.
