Mobile clinical equipment—such as defibrillators, infusion pumps and pulse oximeters—represents about 97% of a hospital’s clinical assets. These same hospitals collectively spend billions of dollars each year purchasing and servicing imaging equipment. When capital planning for these assets is non-existent or ineffective, a critical cost control opportunity is missed. By right-sizing the inventory and developing an appropriate replacement strategy, hospitals can free up millions of capital dollars.
