Measuring the Value of Clinical Engineering –

The Only Metric Needed to Compare Operations

Patrick K. Lynch, CCE, CBET

Have you tried benchmarking?  Have you been disappointed?  Have you given up because it was too hard?  Or because it didn’t yield usable information for you?

Have you tried to find other hospitals to benchmark against?  Have you abandoned this because to the differences in programs from one hospital to the next?

Are you worried about outsourcing?  Do you need to figure out hoe to expand your program to best benefit the hospital?

Well, here is the ultimate answer.  It is easy.  It applies to EVERY hospital, department, clinic, or system.  It pinpoints the specific areas where you should focus your energies to make yourself indispensable to your employer.  It can help make you virtually invulnerable to outsourcing.

COSR – Cost of Service Ratio – is this magic tool.  Come see how it works, why it works, and how to convince you top management to accept it as the main metric for HTM, Biomed and Imaging Engineering,

As a preparation, read the article in the July 2013 TechNation Magazine by Patrick Lynch, entitled Measuring the Cost of Service.
