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.
