Capital Budgeting

Build an affordable biomedical equipment and diagnostic imaging service plan with Crothall’s best-in-class clinical engineering resources and highly trained biomedical equipment engineers, regardless of equipment.

Value-driven Technology Selection

Our experts provide an unbiased assessment of your organization’s current technology and compare different vendor offerings. We help ensure new equipment meets all functional requirements, is interoperable with legacy systems, and is the best value for your current and future needs without bias toward any particular OEM. Regulatory updates can also affect department budgets and add unexpected increases to capital expenditures. Crothall gives the guidance you need to navigate new regulatory recommendations from different industry associations that will be analyzed to predict capital needs.

Standardize Clinical Asset Inventory with Analytics

Intelligent asset planning requires deliberate utilization, optimization, and standardization of your medical equipment. Rightsizing and standardizing inventory across a system provides the potential for significant capital and operational savings, but you need data to make the right decisions. Uncover and visualize all the equipment modalities and manufacturers within your clinical equipment fleet through Crothall’s equipment standardization analytics and dashboards. We’ll leverage that data to build a customized plan that lowers operational expenses, consolidates service, improves workflow, and enhances interoperability. Most importantly, patient safety increases significantly due to clinicians' familiarity with the equipment.

Value Analysis for Maximum Savings

Uncover important financial factors like ROI and total cost of ownership through our financial analysis. We’ll provide a comparison of all-in costs that considers capital cost, service projections, and additional expenses associated with medical equipment throughout its lifetime. Extend the life of existing medical equipment where possible, and identify opportunities to redeploy equipment elsewhere.

Medical Equipment Lifecycle Management

Crothall provides clinical asset management services for every stage of your medical equipment’s lifecycle, regardless of brand or equipment type. Crothall’s strategic medical equipment management system is tailored to fit your healthcare facility’s needs and increase uptime from acquisition through disposition.

How Crothall Helps Clients Manage Their Medical Equipment Through Each Lifecycle Phase

Step 1

Acquisition

Hospitals apply various factors to help inform why and how to acquire each piece of clinical equipment. We help you focus on the right aspects and recommend equipment based on performance and longevity.

Step 2

Usage, Maintenance, and Management

We are built to meet Joint Commission and DNV requirements and certified by ISO 13485:2016; we help you get the most out of your hospital's clinical equipment and provide continuous visibility across devices through our teamCHAMPS system.

Step 3

Asset Disposition

There are many options for removing medical equipment. We'll recommend the best disposition strategy for your healthcare facility.

Regulatory Compliance

Get peace of mind knowing your facility is compliant with all regulatory standards. We’ve never failed a regulatory audit at any client location. Ever. We practice survey-ready protocols with continuous regulatory agency preparation focused on current systems and structures that are subject to regulatory scrutiny. Our preparation focuses on standards, rationales, performance elements, scoring, decision rules, and regulatory agency policies and procedures on the actual delivery of care, treatment, and services.

TeamQUEST Quality Management System

Crothall’s teamQUEST platform, powered by Intelex, supports our Quality Management System (QMS) by providing a singular platform that allows us to structure our QMS while reacting, expanding, and evolving.

Data is key. TeamQUEST provides HTS the ability to collect and collate our quality data to provide reports, insight, and trends quickly. Ultimately the quality data captured in teamQUEST enables our team to identify opportunities that ensure your program’s continuous improvement.

Mobile Medical Equipment Management with equipREADY

Get complete visibility into your mobile medical devices. EquipREADY, Crothall’s equipment distribution program addresses the availability of mobile medical devices, streamlines distribution and staff requests, and ensures Periodic Automatic Replenishment (PAR) levels. EquipREADY goes beyond traditional equipment distribution programs and includes a disinfection component following OEM specifications and the guidelines approved by infection control to ensure equipment is always reliably clean.

Healthcare Technology Integration

EquipREADY can integrate with your existing RFID or RTLS framework but is not dependent on RFID or RTLS technology. Should you choose to implement RFID or RTLS infrastructure, we can help expand your existing platform or support you through our existing partnerships with industry-leading RFID and RTLS network providers to develop infrastructure.

Clinician and Patient Satisfaction

EquipREADY can increase nurse job satisfaction by increasing equipment availability and eliminating time spent looking for equipment. When nurses and other clinical staff have the time and tools to provide quality patient care, patients experience shorter wait times. Everyone wins.

Patient Safety and Infection Control

Mobile medical equipment poses a unique infection control challenge; tracking mobile medical equipment with equipREADY reduces infection spread and ensures a safe environment. We clean and disinfect medical equipment according to OEM specifications and infection control guidelines, so high-touch equipment is safe before anyone uses it again.

23% reduction in Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) rates in one year, when every piece of equipment is tracked, and disinfecting protocols are conducted and verified before returning to use.
