Leveraging Digital to Make Your Clinical Assets Work For You, Not Against You

June 23, 2021, 12 – 1:30 PM CT 

Do you know how many medical devices you have across your system and which ones need to be replaced? Most organizations utilize only 40-45% of the assets in their inventory on a daily basis with “peak” daily utilization hitting 60-65% utilization. Despite this, medical equipment can represent 25% of annual capital expense.

Digital clinical asset management solutions are designed to optimize asset utilization, drive cost savings, and protect against growing cybersecurity threats. In this webinar, leading health systems and their digital solution partners will discuss the benefits of clinical asset management and how to create a secure, robust and results-driven medical device management program.  #ReshapeClinicalAssetMgmt
