Poor or no Asset management
Most hospitals have no proper asset management system in place. Due to this, a lot of time, money, and resources are being wasted.
Medical equipment can be life-giving but maintaining huge inventories can be challenging. This is where efficient and cost-effective asset management comes to the picture.
Faulty machines/ lack of timely service
Medical machinery is prone to overuse resulting in malfunctions, not to mention the breakdown due to lack of timely services. A major question the medical industry asks itself is how to reduce cost without compromising on quality?.
The market is flooded with sellers. One product has umpteen vendors and hospitals are confused as to who will serve them the best.
High Procurement Cost
The heavy equipment cost is a great concern the medical industry is facing, not to mention the additional charges incurred on maintenance, regular service charges, unexpected repairs arising due to poor management and services by the vendors etc.
