Thinking about buying additional clinical equipment? Check your current utilization rate first. Surprisingly, one of the easiest ways to lower equipment service costs is to… buy less equipment.
While it might seem counterintuitive at first, industry data has shown that as much as 60% of clinical equipment capacity goes unused. By increasing use of existing equipment, you can add capacity for more cases without having to add more equipment, which in turn doesn’t add more equipment to support and maintain.
Review utilization of current equipment before buying more. More is not always better, which in this case is a helpful consideration for hospitals looking to save on equipment service costs.
By carefully evaluating existing clinical equipment capacity and maximizing utilization, you can be sure your hospital is only buying what is absolutely necessary. This will certainly help you save on service costs, not to mention the added “bonus savings” of spending less on new equipment.
