Roadblocks Hospitals Face When Acquiring Equipment
By Sage Parker
From medical equipment shortages to an increase in patients, 2020 brought many new challenges to the healthcare industry. Most of these challenges have slowly diminished with the passing of time, but 2020 didn’t just bring new challenges, it also increased pre-existing challenges, most notably the challenge for acquiring new equipment.
The Budget Crisis
Budgeting restrictions have plagued the healthcare industry for decades. Before any equipment is purchased, hospital board members want to know what purpose the equipment will serve and if it will hold its value over time. Not only is the price of the equipment considered, but also the cost to train staff on using the new equipment. In today’s market you are not only dealing with a budget crisis, but as Robb Stevens, SVP of Equipment Leasing at Med One said we are dealing with a “quadruple threat of labor shortages, supply chain issues, inflation, and rising interest rates.” When considering these roadblocks, many would assume that there is little possibility of acquiring new equipment. However, Med One has the solution.
