Effective Health Care Technology Management TSPís broad focus on the full Health Care Technology Life Cycle is unique among similar service providers. Medical technology plays a key role in achieving positive outcomes for patients. However, it is a major cost driver not only due to the initial equipment acquisition cost but also the full life cycle costs associated with installation, training, maintenance, consumables, compliance, etc. Acquisition costs are Only the Tip of the Iceberg.

Due to the complexities of the health care system, inefficiencies can develop. Departmental and individual physician efforts to implement technology can backfire if the overall health care system environment is not taken into consideration. Lack of standardization, improper application, limited infrastructure, failing to capture economies of scale, not anticipating overall utilization, and ineffective maintenance approaches can all lead to escalating costs and less than optimal patient care.

For medical technology to be successful in improving patient outcomes, a comprehensive system of technology planning and management is required. One that optimizes the capacity to produce the desired results while effectively managing costs throughout the full health care technology life cycle.
