The impact of medical device availability on patient safety

Patient safety is a primary concern for all health systems and medical devices play a critical role in supporting the safe and effective delivery of patient care. Looking beyond the “break/fix” mentality of traditional clinical engineering services, health systems must consider ways to be more proactive and responsive for the safety of these devices, ensuring device availability, tracking device location to support delivery of care, protecting the security of medical devices and including safety of devices as a consideration in capital planning initiatives.

Opportunities and Risks: How medical devices are maintained and managed

Hospital operating margins are under strain. A shortage of qualified technicians presents challenges. Medical devices increasingly are being connected to the internet while healthcare cybersecurity breaches are rising. Overlooked among these pressures and others is the scope of what a technology-enabled clinical asset management solution provides, new research suggests. By combining a robust understanding of device inventory with comprehensive clinical engineering and powerful analytics, healthcare systems can curb operating expenses and avoid unnecessary capital expenditures while ensuring medical device availability and supporting overall patient safety.
