Are Repair Service Companies More Valuable to Your Facility than Refurbished Medical Equipment Companies?
When operating a medical facility, you are put in the position of having to consider many different criteria by which you estimate the success of your endeavor. The well-being of your patients is certainly a crucial criterion. Yet, it is also necessary to account for the financial well-being of your facility; if it weren’t for money coming in and costs being kept low, you’d be in a position where aiding your patients is no longer an option. Moreover, you want your daily processes to be efficient and devoid of confusion so as to create a better working environment for your staff.
In looking to satisfy these criteria, medical facilities will often be faced with deciding between refurbished medical equipment companies and biomedical repair service companies. At CSAT, we are confident in the merit of ongoing relationships between medical facilities and repair service companies.
Why Choose Repair Service Companies over Refurbished Medical Equipment Companies?
Repair service companies can provide what is needed for each of the criteria of a successful medical practice. Repair service companies have the patient in mind, knowing that doing their job well means bringing biomedical equipment up to a standard that guarantees the patient has the best experience possible. This is evident in the fact that reputable repair service companies will typically exceed the regulatory requirements they are subject to; CSAT, for example, aims to provide the highest quality of service possible.
Repair services also promote the financial well-being of the medical facility. Regular repairs ensure that your medical facility’s equipment will have a longer working lifespan and operate more efficiently. Also, outsourcing necessary maintenance to a repair service spares you the burden of hiring, training, and compensating full time staff dedicated to repairs. This also avoids the hassle involved with putting together a team dedicated to equipment repair; which makes the operation of your facility more efficient and pleasant.
Refurbished medical equipment companies, by contrast, only serve the financial incentive of procuring cheap equipment for your medical facility. Additionally, this sort of business requires a great deal of due diligence on the part of the medical facilities’ management. You have to find a supplier who is trustworthy and reliable, and then inspect the condition of the machine and the refurbishing process before even considering how an older machine might be serviced without proprietary parts being available.
For these reasons, repair service companies (such as CSAT Medical) appear to be a better option than a medical facility relying on refurbished medical equipment companies.
