3 Ways TransMotion Stretcher-Chairs Save Healthcare Facilities Time & Money

By Champion Manufacturing on Jun 8, 2022 9:44:13 AM

Let us review the logistics necessary to complete a procedure or operation in the healthcare setting whether it is in the hospital or in an outpatient setting. The patient is prepped in one room, on a stretcher. The patient is moved to the OR and transferred to a surgery table. After the procedure, the patient is transferred to another stretcher or recliner for the recovery period. This process requires at least two patient transfers, lifting of the patient, and multiple healthcare workers to accomplish. Using a TransMotion (TMM) Stretcher-Chair can save a facility time and money. The stretcher-chair is a transfer stretcher, surgery/procedure table, and recovery recliner all-in-one that creates a no-lift, no-transfer, safe, clean, and very efficient operating room (OR).

Three Ways CME Can Support New Equipment Biomedical Check-In’s

By Cindy Juhas on Apr 7, 2022 10:51:12 AM

Opening a new medical facility on-time is always challenging. An MCD (Medical Construction & Design) survey in 2018 said that less than 50% of all projects open on time. If we did that poll today, it would even be less, given all the supply chain delays. One common problem when opening any healthcare facility is completing all the biomedical asset-tagging and ESIs (Electrical Safety Inspections) required in a timely fashion. These biomedical check-ins cannot happen until items are delivered and installed in rooms, which is typically near the end of the project. New healthcare facilities have anywhere from 1,000-4,000 pieces of new equipment that require biomedical attention.

Covid-19 and the Ukraine-Russia War Continue to Challenge the Healthcare Equipment Supply Chain

By Cindy Juhas on Mar 15, 2022 11:55:05 AM

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly wreaked havoc on the healthcare equipment supply chain by increasing lead times, prices, and freight costs. Prior to the pandemic CME Corp recorded lead times for equipment between three and eight weeks on average. This week, lead times reached 12-20 weeks on average, more than tripling since the onset of the pandemic. Most industry leaders are expecting the supply chain to start to recover by the end 2022. What effect might the Ukraine-Russia War have on this recovery? It is still too early to tell what the long-term effects might be but there are already problems starting to surface. Here are three areas to watch:
