COMPLEX CHALLENGES FOR THE MODERN
CLINICAL ENGINEERING TEAM

With health care technology advancing faster than ever, many hospital Clinical Engineering departments struggle to keep pace. Managing service contracts on imaging equipment. Juggling vendors. Building, training and retaining high-quality health care technology management (HTM) talent. These challenges often result in disconnected service decisions throughout a hospital that drives unnecessary spending and places an undue burden on clinical staff.

FOUNDATIONAL FOR EQUIPMENT VALUE MANAGEMENT

ONE ELEMENT OF A BROADER
COST-SAVING SOLUTION

UHS is rapidly becoming a preferred source for technical support because of the quality of our technicians
and the flexibility of our offering. But clinical engineering alone doesn’t fully address equipment
utilization, vendor standardization or controlling rental and capital costs. UHS offers an approach called
Equipment Value Management (EVM) that fixes processes and aligns clinical, supply chain and equipment
service teams within your hospital to multiply cost savings and deliver valuable clinical improvements.
