Capital Equipment Track: Medical Equipment Standardization
Date & Time
Monday, June 3, 2024, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In an effort to increase training, procurement, and life cycle management efficiency, medical equipment standardization significantly reduces the number of suppliers and equipment models. Due to this, space within the hospital can be reclaimed for other uses. When equipment is standardized, clinical engineers become familiar with specific models, ultimately leading to faster maintenance, minimizing downtime.

Join us in this session as industry leaders break down standardization and its potential impact on your organization, if implemented effectively.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand concept of standardization, by defining what medical equipment standardization entails.

2. Differentiate benefits of standardization by determining the advantages of standardizing medical equipment.

3. Discuss how standardization impacts patient safety, cost-effectiveness, staff satisfaction and overall efficiency.

4. Endorse the need for innovation alongside standardization by exploring ways to incorporate new technologies.
