Medical Equipments Acquisition

Later, the results are re-calculated by the clinical engineers. The engineers consider five main factors in the acquisition of useful and required equipments that include: clinical, technical, safety, financial and quality. The neural network model is 85% reliable in acquisition of equipments (Magjarevic, 3786)
The method of practical and administration requirement gathering is a traditional structure of acquisition procedure. The majority of medical institutes around the globe are still using this structure. If experienced management team is not engaged with the equipment operation process then the suppliers do not fill all the requirements that are specifically associated with the procurement contract of equipments. To reduce the risk, computational tools are developed to provide support for the acquisition of medical equipments. Also guidelines are provided to the professionals to evaluate the outcomes. (Magjarevic, 3786)
Medical equipment management is not only concerned with the maintenance of equipments like repair of equipments or maintenance cost. It is also concerned with the entire life-cycle services of the patient. SMIC is one of those management programs, which deals with the acquisition, and procurement of medical equipments. …
SMIC takes decisions of acquisition of equipments on the basis of several steps. It also includes equipment evaluation like pre-purchase evaluation and after that this management system makes some particular specifications for the equipments when the purchase review has taken place. The management also goes for vendor selection and bid analysis. It involves fixing planning, equipment testing for approval, defect resolution, user in service learning, selection of equipment service provider, equipment replacement and maintenance analysis and removal. Another purpose of this management is to reduce the cost in acquisition of equipments. Reducing down time of the equipment and consequential lost patient returns can save money. Replacement process is also involved in acquiring of equipments because if the equipment is failed and do not meet the requirements then the equipment should be replaced by the service provider. Standardization of equipments also matters in acquisition. Changes in equipment devices are made on daily basis like new equipments are purchased and old equipments are discarded by the hospitals and medical centers. So it has been noticed that management should be effective enough to play major roles in acquisition of medical equipments. (Dyro, 20)
Procurement of Equipments
Procurement involves replacement of defected equipments, and to acquire new technology and specialized equipments for various clinical and medical awareness programs. It helps to improve the medical facilities. Standards of equipments should be fixed otherwise quality of procured instruments would be affected. There are several issues, which are associated with the medical institutes for the procurement of equipments. Academic medical centers should upgrade
