From the May 2013 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine
In-house service of imaging equipment, especially high end items, is a real challenge. These revenue-making machines cannot be down for long periods of time. Therefore, experienced staff is required for these units. It isn’t possible to train a newbie on the hospital’s only CT scanner. Sure, definitive action is needed. Most hospitals move into these areas slowly, beginning with simpler units where the hospital
has multiple identical units. If this is successful, they may move up to the more expensive and critical devices.
Those hospitals, medical centers or medical systems who manage technology will use whatever mix is needed to get the job done. It is just that simple. You will always hear about third party, ISOs and the OEMs ebbing and flowing.
