Reducing your BME operating costs
Ingredients to reduce your biomedical engineering operating costs
With just two “ingredients”, you can reduce your biomedical engineering operating costs, and become more operationally efficient, without compromising patient safety and quality of care.
It’s no surprise that today’s healthcare environment is complex, dynamic, and undergoing constant change. Faced with insufficient funding, ageing assets, and increasing plant & equipment costs, operators are experiencing pressure like never before. The margins for error are increasingly thin and the expectation to reduce operating costs is unprecedented. And biomedical engineering operating costs are no exception – costs associated with medical equipment, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) services, multi-vendor services, in-house staff, and consumables.
But what might come as a surprise is that there is a cost-effective way that you can reduce your biomedical engineering operating costs, and become more operationally efficient, without compromising patient safety and quality of care. Now that’s a win-win!
Drawing on our 30-year history in the healthcare industry, we have crafted the 360 Degree Biomedical Engineering approach, designed to drive cost savings, operational efficiencies, and compliance across biomedical engineering services. It also helps operators navigate their way around these multi-layered services with clarity and confidence.
Our 360 Degree Biomedical Engineering would typically start with the Biomedical Engineering ‘Health Check’, followed by the implementation of Modules 1 – 4 and conclude with the Biomedical Engineering Annual Review. However, given the current economic climate, the urgency around reducing operating costs and the need for those “quick wins”, you can implement Modules 1 and 3 and still see a positive impact on your bottom line.
Here’s how it works…
The ‘Biomedical Asset Validation and Data Collection’ module will provide current asset inventory clarity, as well as an up-to-date list, identifying each asset’s service coverage, service responsibility and condition status.
There are significant cost and risk management benefits gained when using an up-to-date asset list.
The ‘Service Contracts and Procurement’ module involves an analysis of your existing biomedical service agreements, in conjunction with the up-to-date asset list developed in Module 1.
With an emphasis on cost savings and risk mitigation, high-risk asset groups, service-level gaps and KPI shortfalls will be identified.
So, now you can see how Module 1 – ‘Biomedical Asset Validation and Data Collection’ and Module 3 – ‘Service Contracts and Procurement’ are your two key “ingredients” to reducing your biomedical engineering operating costs, and becoming more operationally efficient, without compromising patient safety and quality of care.
