In the face of the expansion and development of hospitals, the total number of hospitals, an amazing amount of equipment assets, the requirements for improving the efficiency of medical services, and the further improvement of safety supervision requirements in the use of links, the hospital ’s medical equipment management is under great pressure, and this has spawned a new Format-overall trusteeship of hospital medical equipment.

"The overall hosting of hospital medical equipment is actually an overwhelming result, especially after entering 2016." Ni Jun, chairman of Kedu Medical, introduced that in terms of national policy, the "Quality Supervision of Medical Device Use" began in February this year. "Administrative Measures" puts forward higher requirements for the management of hospital medical equipment. Under the situation of stricter supervision, the hospital's "heavy production, light use" equipment management thinking is changing, paying more attention to the "last mile" of the equipment's full life cycle management, that is, quality inspection and maintenance of the use link.

"Medical equipment is crucial to the development of a hospital. We must find specialized companies to maintain medical equipment to ensure maximum medical safety and service quality. Cross-border cooperation will surely become a kind of future development of the medical industry. Trends, resource sharing and binding in different professional fields will be normalized. "Dr. Guo Yuqiao, Chairman of Meihua Group, emphasized.

According to Ni Jun, at present, in many large domestic hospitals, a staff member of the equipment department is often responsible for the management of hundreds of millions of equipment assets. The limitations of the hospital equipment department in terms of number of personnel, technical level, etc. make it difficult to cope with the safety management of the hospital's medical equipment. The regulations clearly state that medical institutions can entrust qualified and capable repair service institutions to perform medical device maintenance and repair in the management of medical equipment. The core of the overall custody service is to integrate online and offline resources through intelligent, capitalized, specialized, and efficient management methods, reduce the pressure on hospital management, and enable hospitals to achieve higher quality management at less cost. In terms of international experience, trusteeship is a popular model. Among the more than 6,000 hospitals in the United States, more than half of the hospitals adopt the model of overall trusteeship by medical device management service companies. However, this model is still in its infancy in China.

The overall custody involves the comprehensive maintenance management of the hospital's assets of hundreds of millions of yuan, so the requirements for service providers are different from those of general repairers. According to reports, the overall custody service is an overall solution involving multiple services such as equipment maintenance and repair, hospital equipment selection, equipment application training, new project development, equipment replacement, equipment leasing and other services. This requires service providers to have technical reserves, human resources, network distribution, capital raising, spare parts channels, Internet technology and other capabilities.

"In the past, hospitals had to sign maintenance contracts with each large equipment repairer separately, which added up to very high management costs. The overall hosting can reduce the hospital's equipment management costs by at least 10% and will improve the efficiency of medical equipment operations." The army said.

It is understood that after more than 10 years of development, Kedu Medical has established a service network with nearly 1,000 professional engineering and technical personnel throughout the country, providing medical equipment asset management services for tens of thousands of hospitals and millions of medical devices.
