It’s about time.
Patient care belongs in the hands of healthcare providers. Asset management on the other hand is better served by an organization that knows exactly how to make that ever-changing dynamic function. DESCO Medical is such an organization; has been and always will be with a menu of services and knowledge quite unlike anyone else in the profession. Services that help you optimize system utilization while we continuously reduce your equipment maintenance costs and give you more time to focus on your core purpose – quality patient care.
There are many ways we make that happen among the hospitals, delivery networks, surgery centers, imaging practices, rehab and PT facilities we partner with throughout the northeast USA and beyond. So with that all said, please accept our invitation to peruse the other sections of our site here to better understand the extent of our capabilities and learn how our mission really does align with yours.
In todays’ healthcare profession there are many specialists. The same can be said for field service and clinical engineering asset technology management. There are simply too many service and equipment vendors in the supply chain to support the economies of scale at the level needed and wanted, especially in an age of declining reimbursements and forces that impact revenue. This presents a very interesting set of challenges for anyone who has been forced to deal with multiple service vendors, rotating points of contact and an even wider set of variables where communication is concerned. So, with that at the top of our minds, we at DESCO Medical have set our independent service organization up to help you consolidate contracts, streamline your equipment maintenance, preventive and corrective repair programs help you to direct your attention back to where it needs to be – on the provision of safe, quality care.
As a company that has been in the profession since 1970, we as a group are well-positioned to have handled the lion’s share of service issues, administrative procedures and everything else you can imagine. We were among the first independent service organizations to offer laboratory field service and Clinical Engineering Asset Management.
And while we are committed to being the global model for service, we haven’t veered away from what’s senior to any singular milestone; that being what’s needed or wanted by the customer. So whether you use our Depot Level Repair Service, our Clinical Engineering Asset Management service, or avail yourself of our Medical Equipment Repair Field service, you can be assured that customer-tailored programs are readily available to help you increase up-time and economize on cost.
By now you’ve come to see how challenging it can be to keep tight reins on your equipment management. Despite the most stringent requirements for manufacturing reliability, systems are subject to downtime or obsolescence. Our goal as a service provider is to help you stay out of the minutiae of preventive or corrective maintenance, compliance and a host of other facets within your facility, department, unit or wing. We provide consultation and staffing to facilitate project management, audit and evaluation of current service contract structure, technical support, medical equipment acquisition guidance, parts acquisition (for general and specialized diagnostic, medical and lab equipment), and emergency service (with OEM-certified technicians) when the unforeseen occurs.
