About Miga Solutions

Since 2004, Miga Solutions has been helping hospitals generate significant annual savings by lowering the costs of their entire medical equipment lifecycle.

Hospitals in the US spend nearly $73B every year to purchase and maintain medical equipment.  Miga’s experience indicates that $9B of this annual spending can be saved if hospitals just had access to the information and tools they need to confidently identify and implement more cost effective equipment spending decisions.
