Thanks to the pandemic, burnout within healthcare facilities has never been higher. And it’s not just clinicians who are feeling the pain. But hope is not lost. Read on to see how some healthcare networks are addressing the problem.
The past year has been a challenging one, to be sure. It has resulted in unprecedented disruption within our healthcare supply chain networks. We’ve captured five key takeaways for HTM teams to consider as we move forward from the pandemic.
The evolution of patient monitoring; the impacts of COVID-10 on monitoring; wireless patient monitoring; securing operating platforms from cyberattacks; and HTM training opportunities. These topics are all covered in this roundtable discussion.
Early in the pandemic, many hospitals tried to meet higher patient demand by acquiring as much equipment as possible. Now, the challenge is how to effectively manage, utilize, service and store this equipment to ensure it is readily available for emergent events.
In the early stages of the pandemic, serious gaps in our traditional healthcare supply chain network emerged. But is COVID-19 an outlier, or do we need to fundamentally change how we access and manage medical equipment and other essential supplies?
CMMS systems not only help track maintenance and repair activity, they can also serve as the ‘source of truth’ to provide HTM teams with key data needed to build a prioritized 3 to 5-year equipment replacement plan.
As we kick off a new decade, healthcare organizations will increasingly face new challenges co-mingled with previous concerns, and the way issues are dealt with will set the precedent for years to come. Here are three trends impacting care facilities in the U.S.
As the year comes to an end, most attention shifts to what’s next: trends, predictions, expectations and challenges. But before we look ahead to 2020, we’re taking a look back at some of the biggest news from 2019. Here are five to keep in mind as you start a new year working in healthcare.
Technology is rapidly changing within hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Time among HTM teams is at a premium, making it difficult to prioritize new technology assessments. Here are 3 technologies worth examining.
Are the increased costs and risk across a healthcare organization, including patients and staff, worth a cent saved on a line item basis? The answer should always be no – but that’s not always the case. Part 4 of a 4-part series exploring the gaps surrounding medical equipment quality.
