When budgeting for the purchase of new medical equipment, does your hospital anticipate all of the costs required to properly train hospital staff to operate and manage equipment? Training end-users, getting IT personnel up to speed on support requirements and biomedical engineers trained to manage repair needs can take far more time and be more costly than you may think. Make sure to anticipate training costs before purchasing equipment to avoid surprises down the road.
The costs of training and related education can add up fast. Know how much training your hospital really needs and plan for these costs before finalizing your purchase.
Don’t overlook what it will cost to get your staff properly trained and using new equipment. The cost can end up being more more than you may think.
