Hospital Reduces Service Costs by Over 20% with Custom Clinical Engineering Program for General Biomed Equipment

Introduction

This case study is based on a July 2018 survey of Agiliti customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled hospital was looking to reduce the cost of service and repairs and improve PM compliance and reporting. Since implementing an Agiliti clinical engineering program, the facility has been able to cut its service costs by 20% and improve PM compliance.

“As a result of the Agiliti Clinical Engineering Services program, we’ve been able to improve our operational and financial outcomes.”

The hospital had a few main areas of contention that they wanted to address by choosing an Agiliti General Biomed Program. Prior to choosing an Agiliti solution, the hospital was faced with the following business challenges:

  • High cost of service and repairs
  • PM compliance and reporting
  • Equipment downtime
  • Administrative burden

Overall, the program has provided the following benefits:

  • Reduced service costs by over 20%
  • Improved PM and Recall Compliance
  • Reduced administrative burden (non-productive tech time)

Agiliti Case Study

Progressive Equipment Management Approach Helps Large Healthcare Facility Improve Nursing Productivity and Reduce Costs

Introduction

This case study is based on a June 2017 survey of Agiliti customers by Techvalidate, a 3rd party research service. The profiled hospital in this case study was focused on ‘quick-win’ opportunities to improve speed to therapy, increase nursing productivity and improve patient outcomes. The hospital chose Agiliti to help them achieve these goals.

“As a result of the on-site equipment management program, the nursing staff has had more time available to focus on patient care. Agiliti is very prompt to handle sudden requests for service & delivery, and their program eliminates the frustration and fear of not having the proper equipment available in-house.”

- Director of Respiratory Services

Challenges

The profiled hospital selected Agiliti’ on-site equipment management program to address the following business challenges at their hospital:

  • Medical equipment rental and capital costs
  • Equipment in-service / Just in time orientation
  • Broken / non-functional equipment

In addition, the hospital estimates that their nurses spent >1 hour on administrative tasks each shift before implementing Agiliti on-site services.

Use Case

Today, the profiled hospital relies on Agiliti’ on-site program and staff to manage the following equipment types:

  • Infusion pumps
  • Other movable medical equipment

When asked, the Director of Respiratory Services identified the following capabilities of the program as direct benefits for the nursing staff:

  • Ability to reduce equipment delays and improve speed to therapy
  • 24/7 service coverage
  • Equipment tracking
  • Patient-level billing
  • Equipment cleaning and documentation
  • On-site equipment troubleshooting
  • Equipment delivery to the patient room/floor
  • Designated equipment storage
  • Equipment availability
  • On-site single point of contact

Results

The surveyed hospital agrees that the on-site equipment management program is highly valuable to the success of their facility, and Agiliti has helped them to realize the following results:

  • Increased nurse satisfaction
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Reduced equipment delays & improved speed to therapy
  • Improved equipment utilization & availability
  • Reduced equipment shortages
  • Improved caregiver productivity
  • Reduced lost equipment

When asked what would be the impact if the on-site program went away, the hospital identified the following consequences:

  • Lowered equipment availability
  • Unplanned capital purchases
  • Increased nursing complaints / frustration
  • Decreased patient satisfaction
  • Decreased staff productivity
  • Decreased productivity of clinical engineering staff
  • A risk to the clinical outcome / patient experience

The Director of Respiratory Services also mentioned that Agiliti’ program and quick service “eliminated the frustration and fear of not having the proper equipment available.”
