PartsSource Launches PartsSource Pro 2020 with New Online Community, Expanded Guaranteed Stock, and Industry’s First AEM Program Database to Improve Medical Equipment Maintenance and Uptime
CLEVELAND, February 18, 2020 – PartsSource, a technology and services company that uses patented, evidence-based decision support to improve asset uptime, decrease long-tail expenses and streamline workflow, today launches PartsSource Pro 2020.
PartsSource Pro is a managed service model combining best processes, cloud-software and logistical support to deliver top-quartile performance for hospital Clinical Engineering and Supply Chain organizations in the U.S. PartsSource Pro specifically addresses the needs of hospitals in an era where doing more with less means getting the most from supply spend, ensuring talent works at the top of their license, and using data science and product outcomes evidence to make decisions.
With the introduction of PartsSource Pro 2020, members can receive three new benefits: a new virtual client community; an expanded Guaranteed Stock program for mission-critical medical products; and the industry’s first Alternative Equipment Maintenance (AEM) database simplifying the creation of AEM programs, making it even easier for the over 1,000 hospitals in the PartsSource Pro community to accelerate equipment repair, ensure clinical availability, and lower the cost of service.
“One of the biggest gaps in healthcare technology management is a way for clinical engineers to engage in peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, and access online training and content that addresses their specific challenges,” said Robert Tackett, Director of Clinical Engineering at The MetroHealth System in Cleveland and a PartsSource Pro member. “I personally find so much value from the collaboration PartsSource fosters by bringing all of clinical engineering together. I feel that the new PartsSource Community will have a huge impact from the peer-to-peer connections and valuable tools like the AEM database.”
Real-time Insights with New Virtual Client Community
The new PartsSource Pro online client community is designed to encourage innovation and knowledge-sharing among community members. Clients can access curated content comprised of the latest best practices, premium content including hundreds of hours of educational videos, and shared learnings – quickly, easily and 24x7. The platform also provides access to proprietary tools that support strategic initiatives such as toolkits for Capital Planning, Alternative Equipment Maintenance, and a growing repository of other ready-to-use toolkits designed to help clients implement key strategies for achieving high-performance HTM. Lastly, the online community lets clinical engineers connect with industry colleagues, exchange best practices and obtain real-time insights.
Industry’s First AEM Database
PartsSource Pro 2020 makes the industry’s first AEM database available to community members, providing all the tools and information needed to build a successful AEM program. The Joint Commission has encouraged healthcare facilities to develop their own AEM programs but the lack of a streamlined process for developing an AEM program has meant that few facilities have taken advantage of the option.
The PartsSource Pro 2020 AEM database is the answer. The first-of-its-kind database simplifies the creation of an AEM program with sample quality policies, risk-based assessments, maintenance, inspection, and testing frequencies across leading health systems.
Data Intelligence Drives Expanded Guaranteed Stock Program
Leveraging 20 years of longitudinal data and data science, PartsSource Pro 2020 guarantees availability of mission-critical medical equipment to maximize hospitals’ repair productivity, as well as equipment uptime and utilization, with data intelligence. Based upon positive client feedback, the PartsSource Pro 2020 guaranteed stock program has been expanded to include more than 50 high-demand imaging parts that support CT, C-arm, Cath/Angio and Radiography / Fluoroscopy modalities to increase healthcare organizations’ supply chain reliability, staff efficiencies and revenue growth.
“PartsSource is honored to strategically partner with more than 1,000 hospitals in leading health systems to help manage quality, control costs, promote efficiencies and support the availability of effective and safe patient care,” said Philip Settimi, M.D., President and CEO of PartsSource. “We will continue to advance the data intelligence that underlies PartsSource Pro to deliver ever-increasing client value and satisfaction in the years to come.”
