Developing a Clinical Engineering Imaging Program: A Cost-effective Alternative

Moretti, Alan


With the development of complex equipment technologies in the medical care industry, particularly in the imaging areas, the costs required to keep equipment in proper operating condition can be substantial. An internal clinical engineering imaging program can provide measured equipment service cost savings as compared to sole sourced vendor agreements and enhance the delivery of direct patient care by ensuring maximum equipment "uptime" and revenue generation.
