Mai SumlutAs a key component in almost any medical setting, patient monitors come in many varieties and sizes. Throughout the course of patient treatment, clinicians can use a combination of bedside and portable monitors. Keeping an entire fleet of patient monitors in good working order in any facility, especially a large hospital, requires expertise, time and money.

Facilities can manage their patient monitors more efficiently while increasing cost savings by partnering with an equipment provider to help them source the monitors they need, and make sure they’re up and running with comprehensive service, repair and parts. In this article, learn what to look for in a patient monitoring equipment provider in order to maximize your facility’s efficiency and its budget.

Cost-Effective Patient Monitor Sourcing

When choosing a patient monitor provider, it makes sense to work with a company that offers a large inventory of refurbished monitors in various types, brands and models. Look for a company that can offer monitors from all the top manufacturers including GE, Philips, Draeger and more.

While the biggest, most straight forward benefit of refurbished monitors is the cost savings, professionally refurbished medical equipment can also provide facilities with other benefits. A late-model, refurbished patient monitor can integrate more seamlessly into an existing fleet, reducing staff training.

Avante Health Solutions is well-known for its wide selection of patient monitors. Avante can offer facilities professionally refurbished monitors from top manufacturers, helping facilities find the equipment they need at a cost-effective price point.

Simple, Fast Service and Repair

In addition to sourcing the right models, a true equipment partner can offer facilities flexible, simple service on their patient monitors with a quick turnaround. Be sure to ask a prospective equipment provider what their repair process entails. A reputable company will have simple, easy-to-use services that allow facilities to easily communicate equipment errors and send in their equipment for repair.

When choosing a patient monitor repair partner, be sure the company has the skills and expertise to be able to handle a variety of repairs on all major brands. The company should have thorough processes for repair and documentation, and this communicated effectively to customers. An easy way to determine whether a company is quality-focused is to ask if their processes have been certified by a regulatory agency.

Repair technicians at Avante understand how time consuming the repair process can be for facilities, so they have streamlined to process to be quick, simple and easy to use.
