By CME on Jun 3, 2017 10:30:00 AM

In our current economic climate, many healthcare facilities are looking to cut back when it comes to handling equipment delivery and warehousing mainly due to a lack of warehouse space and a lack of sufficient personnel to handle all of the many tasks involved in this process. 

A number of IDNs and large systems often ask distributors and vendors to take on logistical needs they would not have in the past—and instead of keeping large items in a central warehouse, they are leaning more toward direct-to-side delivery.

In an age when continued growth and profitability for healthcare systems requires them to spread their footprint outside of their acute care setting, the building or acquisition of non-acute care facilities is only going to increase. Which means the management of those equipment assets increases as well.

When WOW’s and IT wall arms age: Best Practices and Effective Partnerships

By CME on Apr 25, 2017 10:58:19 AM

 It’s hard to believe that workstations on wheels (WOWs) weren’t in active use in healthcare settings ten years ago. The digitization of medical records, coupled with better wireless capabilities has been a real game changer for health care and WOWs have been a notable part of that change.

While around longer, the same is true of wall arms as their roles have increased to include a way to incorporate various devices within the patient room and around the facility.

Technology is invigorating healthcare with a new efficiency and increasingly new possibilities of how to deliver it. As the uses evolve, how these devices are transported or positioned is evolving too.

Demands on today’s hospital IT Department are certainly progressing at a fast pace. Growing EHR
presence, Internet enabled devices appearing in locations that didn’t seem possible even 10 years ago, BYOD extending endpoints, and all this overlaid on the long-standing day-to-day healthcare IT needs mean that these departments are pulling at the seams.

Running an efficient hospital IT department is certainly more challenging, however the nature of IT means that technology, along with effective staff management, is creating opportunities for better outcomes.

Why You Need CME as the "Go To" for Your Next Major Medical Construction Project

By CME on Feb 14, 2017 11:00:00 AM

Delaying the opening of a 20 doctor clinic can cost a healthcare system over $100,000 in revenue a day. Delaying the opening of a hospital can cost over $400,000 a day.

There is so much to manage and coordinate, and unless carefully managed, deadlines slip by and things go wrong. That's why it's so important to enlist the help of a medical equipment specialist who has the resources, experience and ability to coordinate medical equipment purchasing and logistics and see the project through to successful completion on schedule.
