While a competent, capable and expert team of staff members is the backbone of any hospital or healthcare facility, having up-to-date, functioning equipment can make it easier to provide extraordinary patient care. Technologically advanced equipment not only improves patient satisfaction, but also increases staff efficiency - both of which lead to more revenue. When you have ordered new medical equipment, how do you ensure that everything is set up properly and will be ready for immediate use? Here are five things to consider for the smoothest, most efficient equipment setup: http://hubs.ly/H03vSPs0 #medicalequipment #directtosite

Success in design and construction of healthcare facilities is dependent on many factors, including a strong focus on the patient experience, application of cutting edge technology, adherence to a schedule, and strict control of the budget. The most critical factor in assuring the successful completion of a construction project is obtaining adequate financing to cover all of the actual construction costs, along with the attendant equipment costs to properly outfit the newly constructed space.

Working with a GPO allows hospitals to benefit from the buying power of combining hundreds of healthcare facilities. This is a well-known fact among buyers and purchasing managers as it relates to purchasing products from manufacturers. However, knowledge of the role that a medical distributor can play in the procurement and delivery services provided through a GPO is far less common. A medical distributor can save you time and money by providing value added services focused on ordering efficiency and streamlining the delivery process.

At Claflin Medical Equipment, we realize that opening a new clinic is not without its problems. Toils, frustrations and, yes, even pain sometimes occur. To check this out and confirm our suspicions, we recently polled some newer customers and asked them to describe some of the areas of pain they experienced when trying to open a new clinic. We only asked customers that opened larger clinics, those with over 20 exam rooms. After compiling the list, the many pains seemed to land in these 5 distinct areas: http://hubs.ly/H03r5c00

Healthcare and medical service providers across the nation are continuing to experience dramatic growth both in terms of the number of facilities, and in the quality of care being delivered.

Ordered some equipment from their website and ran into all sorts of problems. Took over 3 months to receive the simple piece of equipment. Then it was an incorrect and they charged us 20% restocking fee plus shipping. Very frustrating and I assume some of the responsibility was on Welch Ally. Website was also deceiving and didn't include many technical details for the hardware we needed.
