St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Amerinet, Inc, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, partnered with ARAMARK Healthcare Technologies to help Pacific Medical Centers implement a comprehensive medical equipment management plan with savings of more than 17 percent over the organization’s previous clinical equipment repair and maintenance service expenditures.
“Driving economies of scale and process standardization are two of the top medical equipment management challenges facing multi-site providers,” said Shawn Padilla, director of supply chain and materials management at Pacific Medical Centers in Seattle, Wash. “The outcome of our partnership with Amerinet and ARAMARK Healthcare Technologies is a much lower cost, more responsive relationship that provides dedicated management services, maximizes our organization’s service contracts and generates a valuable reporting structure.”
ARAMARK created a full-risk medical equipment management outsourcing program using its proprietary technology platform to give Pacific Medical Centers network-wide visibility and transparency that was not previously possible. The new system now provides a data driven tool to aggregate the history of each piece of equipment, enabling the organization to track uptime and preventive maintenance. The system also tracks all service calls and maintenance costs for each piece of equipment.
“Managing our expenses and having a central repository and better controls in place to manage our biomedical and imaging equipment has helped us gain a clearer picture of our equipment inventory and is enabling us to make solid business decisions going forward,” said Padilla.
