Hospital Executives Plan to Increase Outsourcing of Services.

February 20th, 2014 · 6:06 pm  →  Horizon News + Notes Medical Technology Management

Last year in 2013,  ”Modern Healthcare”, hospital executives  indicated that they plan to increase their outsourcing in “non-clinica”l areas going forward into the year ahead. (Modern Healthcare, “Executive Opinions on Purchasing,” August 2013).

The primary top 2 reasons that were proclaimed for taking such action towards “non-clinical” outsourcing were

Capitalizing on vendor expertise (47.4%)

Cost Reduction (42.1% cited)

While this development may be touted as a new trend for some hospital CEOs,  there have been countless  CEOS and COOS through the years who have come to know that there is enormous value in outsourcing . Horizon CSA has been involved in strategically partnering with healthcare facilities for a decade now.

Horizon CSA specializes in biomedical equipment services which have been highly validated as a pivotal cost savings and cost avoidance resource by many North Carolina and East Coast based healthcare facilities.

To find out if your hospital may be a candidate to “lead” in biomedical equipment services along with experiencing costs savings, cost avoidance and “found” revenues, feel free to contact us.

The Horizon CSA Advantage…..Virtually You in Biomedical Technology Services!

The Horizon Advantage ……Virtually You in Biomedical Technology Services!

 Some say that the sincerest form of flattery is emulation. At Horizon, we believe that our best practice is to host seamless “virtual-like you”  biomedical on-site solutions for our customers.

These solutions and human resources literally incorporate  your facility’s best practices all the while providing novel and unprecedented software technology, human assets and cost savings solutions.

Horizon CSAs virtual in-house biomedical programs  combine the best of both worlds which is to say  we incorporate  the best attributes of in-house departments with those of a experienced highly skilled company focused exclusively on clinical engineering.

We acknowledge that most well functioning in-house departments typically possess the following attributes;

1.     Management controls

2.     Organizational commitment,

3.    A Common purpose, goals and objectives,

4.     Teamwork, esprit de corps, camaraderie and a sense of community

5.     Integration within a strategic plan and comprehension of the facilities values.

However,  in-house departments typically found in modest-size hospitals are far too often understaffed, have limited skills due to lack of continuous training, are often “multi-tasking”
and doing tasks that are  completely unrelated to biomedical equipment services or medical technology management, are not properly deployed throughout the hospital for optimal  understanding of equipment issues and non-performance,  rely far too much on expensive OEM service and may  be capable of  providing  only a small piece of what is required to become a high performance clinical engineering operation.

Horizon CSA’s  on-site  solution-service programs  retain all of the best advantages of an in-house department plus  we carefully and artfully fill in the gaps that leave your facility wide open for negative consequences. We remediate the gaping holes in your biomedical equipment program with highly skilled, up-to-date, well trained technicians and leaders who are highly motivated  professionals who always perform.  Performance at Horizon CSA is measured frequently and our entire exisitence is predicated on the performance metrics with our healthcare providers.
