Internal Support Applications for the Care of Your Equipment
Ultrasound machines are critical to the operation of health care facilitie s and institutions. Budget cuts and rising costs of machines force facilities to look for ways to continue providing quality health care service while making the most of their old or existing machines.
One of the ways health care facilitie s have learned how to save is through using internal staff to take care of their machines. From their experience with these machines, health care facilitie s already know what kind of skills they need to have, internally, to be able to repair and recondition their existing machines. This can add up to big savings for them. Already, OEM companies and dealers are seeing the growth in this trend and have started offering support and training to those choosing the in-house route. Technical schools are also jumping on the bandwagon by offering classes on ultrasound equipment servicing.
Other options that are currently available to health care facilitie s for the maintenance and repair of machines are getting support from the original manufacturer or contracting a third party to do it.
