Research and analytical laboratories rely on highly proprietary equipment, with only the OEM authorized to access software and service all aspects of the equipment. This generally limits service options and forces laboratories to issue multiple agreements to respective manufacturers with varying processes and workflows, and inconsistent expiration dates. Within procurement, this creates single-source acquisitions that are difficult to compete and validate for cost reasonableness. Cenmed offers a dynamic solution that leverages only qualified manufacturer technicians across multiple proprietary equipment types under a single agreement to optimize service request workflows and significantly reduce maintenance costs.
With hundreds of qualified providers capable of servicing a broad range of healthcare equipment, Cenmed expands its clients’ resources and capabilities by utilizing its vast vendor network. Cenmed takes this further than the rest by truly partnering with hospital in-house biomedical engineering teams as an extension of its vendor network. Cenmed understands the value provided by in-house biomedical engineering teams and promotes ongoing training and service capabilities while utilizing manufacturers and certified ISO providers to bridge the gap. This multifaceted service approach significantly reduces downtime and service costs while optimizing technician redundancies. From general X-ray to MRI and radiation oncology, Cenmed’s EMMS provides a truly comprehensive maintenance management solution.
