By CME Corp Staff on Aug 23, 2023 7:30:00 AM

Throughout history there have been women who have advocated for, inspired, and mentored other women.

Some of these women have made the history books.

Others with equally powerful voices have remained anonymous.

CME’s Chief Strategy Officer, Cindy Juhas may not (yet) be mentioned in a Women’s Studies course at the local university, but she is far from anonymous. A quick Google search returns a long list of medical equipment distribution related articles written by Cindy, interviews with Cindy, and podcasts featuring Cindy.`

Safe & Sound: 6 Reasons Sterilization Equipment is a Healthcare Imperative

By CME Corp Staff on Aug 15, 2023 7:45:00 AM

It is safe to say that the pandemic rocked our world.

It brought words like “sterilize” and “sterilization” out of the world of healthcare and into mainstream conversation.

Healthcare facilities, from large IDNs to small private practices doubled down on sterilization practices.


Today, three years later, the sterilization equipment market is still growing.

Because healthcare associated infections (HAI) are most common in surgical patients or patients receiving long-term care, medical sterilization equipment is a key player in the battle to combat the spread of HAIs.

Sterilization equipment is also a vital weapon in the struggle to keep healthcare workers safe.

Projections suggest that the sterilization equipment market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4% over the next ten years!

What Makes a Great Surgical Light?

By Burton Medical, LLC on Aug 9, 2023 7:02:42 AM

What makes a great surgical light?

It depends on who you ask.

Ask four members of a surgical team what is important in a surgical light, and you will probably get four different answers.

In the operating room the roles and duties of each member of a surgical team define important lighting features. Whether in an Ambulatory Surgical Center, Hospital, or Clinic, for every role there are unique lighting requirements and pain points.

Ask Equipment Planners, Facility Managers, or Biomedical Engineers and they will tell you that technology, installation, and maintenance support are most important. 

So many different answers.

Why is that?

It comes down to the focus of the stakeholders.

The Role of HL7 in the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Landscape

By CME Corp Staff on Jul 25, 2023 11:45:00 AM

Technology these days is amazing. It seems that whatever information we need is just a click away.

This is especially true in healthcare. Gone are the days of waiting for records from another provider or standing watch over the FAX machine to grab sensitive Personal Health Information (PHI) before someone who shouldn’t, sees it.

Although it’s a bit cliché, local Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and the bigger Electronic Health Record (EHR) landscape have revolutionized how we diagnose and treat patients. They have created integrated care.

How does it all work?

How Mobile Telehealth Carts are Revolutionizing Hospitals Amid Labor Shortages

By First Products on Jul 20, 2023 7:15:00 AM

Picture this: It's a crisp, cool evening at Metro General Hospital. The halls echo with the whirr of machines, the soft shuffle of nurses’ shoes, and occasional bursts of urgent conversation. The emergency department is nearing capacity, patients lining the corridors on gurneys as they await attention. In this chaotic symphony of care, there's an unsettling undercurrent. The hospital, like many others across the globe, is grappling with a severe staffing shortage.

Nurses are overworked, physicians are stretched thin, and the administrative staff is in constant juggling mode.

Emergency care is delayed, elective surgeries are postponed, and routine patient follow-ups are being compromised.

The resulting strain on patient care and staff morale is palpable. The administration is left grappling with an enormous challenge: how to provide optimal care with a fraction of the required workforce.

Enter the innovative solution of mobile telehealth carts - a solution offered by pioneers like First Products.

FIRST provides mobile mounting solutions for telehealth tablets, PCs, laptops, cameras, and other technology devices, helping teams overcome labor shortages in demanding work environments.

Nurturing Independence: Must Have Equipment for Rehabilitation Centers

By CME Corp Staff on Jul 11, 2023 7:18:14 AM

Independence comes in many forms.

For many it is the freedom to “age in place” at home or go about daily activities without assistance following an illness, accident, or surgery.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation often begin in the acute care environment but continue after a patient is discharged. It is not surprising then that rehabilitation centers are popping up everywhere to help aging baby boomers and those with medical conditions maintain their independence.

With the outpatient rehabilitation center market projected to experience a compound annual growth rate of 6% 1 between 2022 and 2027, it is important to consider exactly what equipment is needed to prepare a rehabilitation center for positive patient outcomes.

9 ADA Suggested Features to Look for in Patient Accessible Exam Tables

By CME Corp Staff on Jun 27, 2023 7:45:00 AM

These days it is hard to imagine a time when

  • buildings had doorways that were too narrow for wheelchairs;
  • parking lots did not have designated spaces close to an entrance for Americans with mobility challenges; and
  • signs forbidding service animals were posted in public buildings.

Through standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) all public buildings and businesses must be accessible to everyone. Today website accessibility for hearing and sight impairment as well as disabilities that affect the ability to grasp and use a mouse are hot topics.

But accessibility is about more than buildings and web browsing. It is also about ensuring medical equipment is not a barrier to comprehensive and accurate healthcare for people with mobility challenges.

For example, how thoroughly can a healthcare provider examine a patient in a wheelchair versus examining that same patient on an exam table?
