HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY

BALANCING THE COSTS AND BENEFITS OF THE LATEST HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY

Healthcare technology is constantly advancing, more so today than ever before. CHG-MERIDIAN can help assess your current technology and assist in transitioning to the latest clinical and diagnostic devices to enhance patience care, delight staff, and improve outcomes.

The convergence of clinical devices and IT

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.

ACHIEVING BALANCE: PATIENT CARE VERSUS ECONOMIC CHALLENGES

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:

  • Identifying under-utilized assets
  • Trade-in of owned assets for cash or, to subsidize the finance of new devices
  • Proving late model, refurbished and warranted devices for significant savings
  • HIPAA-compliant data sanitization and EPA-approved disposal of equipment
  • Tracking and reporting of technical, maintenance and financial data

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.

We can also offer an all-inclusive financing package where you pay one single installment for equipment and services. This could be anything from the financing of workplace PCs, medical imaging equipment, or a sterile laboratory to the fitting out of an entire cafeteria.

Pay-as-you-earn

With this individual financing method the costs are distributed throughout the useful life of the equipment. Your lease installments are based on the expected income and the usage of the equipment.

Pay-per-theater

If you want to finance your operating theater, we can quote a rate for the complete cost of an operating theater based on the operations performed.

This flexible financing method matches your income streams. It evolves in line with the patient-based flat-rate fees and is also covered by these.
