Case Study:

How an End-to-End Equipment Program Saved $1.5M

Introduction

This case study is based on a June 2017 survey of Agiliti customers by a 3rd party research service. The profiled hospital* was focused on reducing their medical equipment costs, improving clinical engineering productivity and increasing their nursing satisfaction. The hospital selected Agiliti for their onsite management program and clinical engineering services to help achieve their goals and fix fragmented processes.

As a result of the Agiliti Onsite Medical Equipment Management program, we've been able to reduce our costs (rental spend, capital purchases). In fact, the Agiliti program has saved our organization over $1.5M and elevated the level at which our clinical engineering program previously operated. — Chief Technology Officer

Challenges

Use Case

Today, the profiled company relies on the Agiliti Onsite Equipment Management program and staff to manage the following equipment types:

Infusion pumps

Feeding pumps

Specialty beds and
therapy surfaces

NPWT (Negative Pressure
Wound Therapy)

Newborn cribs
and beds

Dialysis machines

Other movable medical equipment

When asked, the Chief Technology Officer of the profiled company indicated that there were several highly differentiated capabilities of the onsite program that separated Agiliti from the competition:

Reporting and usage analytics

Access to rental fleets to meet additional needs

On-site team integration with the hospital team

On-site single point of contact for both the Clinical Engineering and Onsite Management Program

Results

The profiled company agrees that the onsite equipment management program is highly valuable to the success of their facility, and Agiliti helped them to realize the following results:

Reduced capital purchases

Increased nurse satisfaction

Increased clinical engineering productivity

Reduced their administrative burden (contacting vendors, paperwork)

When asked what the impact would be if the onsite equipment management program went away, the hospital identified the following consequences:

Unplanned capital purchases

Increased nursing complaints/frustration

Decreased productivity of clinical engineering staff

Increased capital investments toward tracking technology

In evaluating the Onsite Medical Equipment Management program, the profiled company also commented:

Agiliti demonstrated a cost-competitive proposal that had a quick time to value. We entered the agreement to reduce costs and immediately saw results in quality, productivity, and employee satisfaction.”
