Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 12, 2015
Telemend Medical, Inc. (“Telemend” or “the Company”) announced today the award of two maintenance agreements with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) at the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System in Little Rock, AR, and the William S. Middleton VA Hospital in Madison, WI. Telemend will provide these facilities with full-service medical equipment maintenance via unlimited on-site service and preventative maintenance. Telemend’s services will ensure optimization of capital assets within the hospitals, such as critical care and healthcare beds.
Hospital beds often suffer from a lack of required service. Ill-repair leads to safety concerns such as patient falls, electrical safety hazards, and drug over- or under-dose. Telemend’s expert engineers evaluate medical facilities and propose cost- and time-efficient alternatives to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) contracts. These custom solutions ensure the highest levels of equipment performance while minimizing patient care interruptions and maximizing patient satisfaction, which ultimately lead to increased Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (“HCAHPS”) scores.
“Our [Telemend] team is thrilled to partner with the VA hospitals in Little Rock and Madison to help them continue to deliver the highest quality of care by the most efficient means possible,” said Telemend CEO Sheneka Rains. “Many of our engineers are veterans, so we value this opportunity to work with the Department of Veteran Affairs to manage and maintain the use of their medical equipment.”
Telemend currently offers these custom, biomedical- and clinical-maintenance programs and services nationwide for hospitals, out-patient centers, ambulatory centers, skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, and patients’ private homes. Telemend has an established presence in the VA Healthcare system, including VA Indianapolis, VA Palo Alto, and VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare Systems, with plans to continue expanding strategic partnerships in 2016.
