Medical equipment leasing has been and will continue to remain a critical success factor for healthcare providers who wish to secure high-technology solutions that will create significant savings in the long term
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Despite the rollout of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or otherwise known as "Obamacare" on March 23, 2010, medical expenses have continued to rise. However, recent data shows that medical and financial experts believe that the continued use of enhanced medical technology can not only improve patient outcomes but also reduce overall cost of medical treatment.
Surgical procedures have become less expensive thanks to a new generation of tools that use light, laser, radio frequency and ultrasonic energy. These tools are battery powered and are able to perform a wide range of surgical procedures which are not invasive.
As a result of using these tools, patient outcomes and infection control have improved. Despite the cost of equipment acquisition to be very high, the lifetime costs are much lower. In some cases, the patient might not need postoperative treatment- another factor that reduces healthcare costs.
Changes in pathology and diagnosis have also significantly lowered the cost of healthcare. For instance, the three dimensional imaging system known as the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), is a non-invasive technique that is used to detect cancer and vascular diseases. Unlike the ultrasound, this particular imaging system uses sound instead of light. This eliminates the need for a patient to go for several appointments before any abnormalities are detected in the retina.
Despite the gains in patient outcomes as well as overall healthcare costs, medical equipment installed with the latest innovative technology is expensive to acquire. For healthcare providers to adopt new technology, they need to justify the measurable improvement it can provide against the upfront cost.
If a healthcare organization purchases this technology, it then becomes cost prohibitive. However, medical equipment leasing is a far more financially flexible option that allows medical centers to access medical equipment without investing heavily in upfront costs. As a result, the cost of equipment acquisition is not automatically transferred to patients, which leads to a significant reduction on the cost of treatment – while simultaneously assisting patient outcomes.

The challenge that comes with new groundbreaking technologies is that it takes a significant amount of time for anyone to realize any results, with costs spread over the course of the disease or over the lifetime of the patient.
