Healthcare Technology Management – Effective Governance and Technology Planning

Healthcare Technology Management

The Healthcare Technology Management model can demonstrate the significant financial benefit of migrating fragmented equipment asset management structures, towards a centralised data set and budget model. With a greater focus required for clinical governance and patient safety, it has come paramount for NHS Trusts and Private Sector providers to have a robust medical device strategy.

MTS has worked alongside healthcare organisations to identify areas for improvement including centralised equipment procurement, correctly tracking and replacement planning of assets, identifying equipment wastage, centralising equipment maintenance contracts and looking at financial and operational efficiencies.
