INTEGRATED MEDICAL ASSET MANAGEMENT

Asset Management Systemsrecognizes that efficiently utilizing your medical hi-technology assets enhances not only your ability to provide world-class healthcare to your patients, but also your profitability.  Our Integrated Medical Asset Management (MAM) program covers every piece of equipment owned by your hospital and acts like operational insurance for your valuable medical hi-technology.  Under our MAM program, there is one contract covering every medical device in the hospital.  There is only one number to call whenever service is required.  There is only one monthly payment to make.  AMS takes 100% responsibility for the cost and performance of every medical device, manages all financial and operational risk and incurs all maintenance and repair costs – including costly replacement parts, if the hospital desires this coverage.

We also ensure that your hospital is in compliance with international standards.  AMS uses methods developed by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), the American Hospital Association (AHA), the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and other internationally recognized organizations to determine which medical devices need to be included in the Medical Equipment Management Plan (MEMP).  The MEMP outlines the procedures to be followed by the Biomedical Engineering Department (BME) to maximize operational efficiency in accordance with internationally recognized standards.  Conformance to world-class standards reduces the risk of preventable medical error and fosters the provision of exceptional patient care.   

When equipment does malfunction, we manage the entire repair process to minimize the disruption to your facility.  We ensure that all required device calibration and preventive maintenance are done on schedule and in accordance with ISO9002, Hospital Accreditation (HA) and Joint Commission International (JCI) standards.  We guarantee that all corrective maintenance will be done properly and in a timely manner.  For a hospital wishing to control their medical hi-technology related operating costs, improve efficiency and ensure compliance with international healthcare quality management standards, our MAM program is the right choice.
