Procurement professionals in healthcare can have a tough time deciding where to purchase their supplies and equipment. Here are the four best reasons to purchase hospital equipment from a specialist in the field:
1. Healthcare Equipment Specialists Know The Suppliers & Their Products
Just like healthcare professionals spend years in specialized study and practical experience learning about diseases and dysfunctions, CME has spent over 34 years learning about healthcare manufacturers and their various products. We have also learned what particular handling needs are required for what specific devices and how to address those needs in the most efficient and cost effective manner.
2. Healthcare Equipment Specialists Know Their Customers
In a similar way, just like patients come to hospitals for valued medical services, here at CME, our customers come to us for our insight and experience in medical logistics. We understand the problems that our customers face, and with over three decades of experience in the business of selling healthcare equipment to hospitals and medical offices, we can skillfully deal with these problems. No matter what you are buying, it is always easier to deal with a vendor that truly understands your challenges, and at Hospital Associates we take pride in our expertise at helping healthcare professionals overcome these challenges.
3. Healthcare Equipment Specialists Have A Broader Product Reach
As an organization that provides solutions to the healthcare industry, we are free to focus on making sure that we carry the specific items and materials that our customers will use. Large generalist distributors are often limited in the type of healthcare equipment that they can offer, but CME carries a huge number of manufacturer products that are specifically tailored for the healthcare industry. This also means that we have a deeper understanding of these products, because healthcare is the only market that we focus on.
4. Healthcare Equipment Specialists Will Save You Money
In today’s economic times, it can be a challenge for some medical offices to get what they need from a limited budget. At Hospital CME, we are happy to do everything we can to save our customers money. We also understand that money is saved not just on the price of the products, but also in the process of buying these products. Because of this understanding, we save our clients money in ways like:
- Being eligible participants in GPO diversity programs to ensure that we can offer the best price from our manufacturers
- Boxing smaller products by room to save you time after products are delivered
- Facilitating product training and demonstrations to ensure that you can effectively use everything you buy from us
- Minimizing the amount of purchase orders that have to be created for each project to reduce the administrative burden on your team
These are just a few reasons why healthcare equipment specialists, like CME, can help our customers succeed. Your patients make appointments with you and your staff of professionals because you serve as trusted consultants for their physical health. At CME, we are trusted consultants that will help your hospital or practice with equipment solutions every step of the way, from product selection all the way to implementation.
