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/H03vR-b0 #medicalequipment #directtosite

Purchasing medical equipment is an entirely different animal when doing so for off-site locations, such as maternity clinics, freestanding ambulatory surgery centers, or imaging centers. When buying for facilities outside of the main hospital, there are several third-party individuals involved in whom you must place your trust. That said, having too many hands in the pot often leads to mistakes due to miscommunication, among other things. To help you combat these errors, we’ve come up with four tips to keep in mind when purchasing capital medical equipment for off-site locations.

The PATH Act refers to a law signed by President Obama called the "Protecting Americans from Tax Hike" Act of 2015. Also known as the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2016, the law was signed on Dec. 18, 2015, and calls for a two-year moratorium on the medical device excise tax from January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2017. This moratorium will temporarily remove the 2.3 percent excise tax hike currently paid by manufacturers and importers of medical equipment sold in the United States.

The hospital of the future will be significantly different from the hospitals we see today. According to some reports, not a single administrator, doctor, or patient can clearly tell what these hospitals will look like. According to Gary M. Burk, Principal at Terrie L Kurrasch Senior Associate Ratliff, the future hospital won’t be a healthcare facility. Due in part to technological innovations and the general delivery system, amalgamation, consolidation, and the ever-evolving regulatory environment, future hospitals won’t be as richly utilized, nor will they be as resource intensive as the hospitals of today.

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. According to the 7th edition of the Diabetes Atlas, more than 400 million people globally currently live with diabetes and by 2040 the number will grow to 642 million. It is estimated by the American Academy of Ophthalmology that 80% of diabetics will eventually develop some level of diabetic retinopathy. Despite the fact that early detection and treatment can prevent up to 95% of vision loss cases, typically only half of patients with diabetes see an eye specialist for an annual retinal exam.

Infection prevention is everybody’s job in all kinds of healthcare facilities. In fact, the scope of infection prevention concerns has expanded such that the acronym HAI no longer refers just to “hospital acquired infections”, but now to “healthcare associated infections”. These HAIs are not restricted just to hospitals, but also to skilled nursing facilities, rehab facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, clinics and even physician offices.

Exam room workflow today needs to be flexible to accommodate new technologies, information systems and ever-changing healthcare protocols. Besides looking at workflow, some basic examination equipment needs to be on hand so that the most elementary of medical services can be provided starting on the very day the doors open. And while there will certainly be a continual process of accrual that unfolds over time until a facility is considered fully equipped, there are definitely a number of items that optimally will be available to clinical staff immediately.

Let's take a look at a list of items healthcare purchasing agents and administrators should have on their short-list of what medical staff will need in the typical hospital exam room: http://hubs.ly/H03SLq60 #medicalequipment #examroomequipment
