Session ID: 

A Practical Approach to Medical Technology Capital Planning

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Most healthcare organizations usually have a set capital budget for medical technology acquisitions. In this day and age, technology has become increasingly complex, devices are interfacing with each other as well as Electronic Medical Records; and Cybersecurity/Privacy has taken a front and center seat on medical equipment and systems decisions. As such, it has become very difficult to make the right decisions on when to retire medical equipment, when to purchase new equipment, and what technology to use in order to replace outdated/end of life medical systems and devices. In this session, we will explore how two different leading healthcare organizations have coped with these issues, different strategies used to address them, and lessons learned during this process.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify ways to drive Capital Medical Systems acquisitions and disposition
  • Analyze two different approaches to Capital Planning while keeping in mind Cybersecurity, Integration, and Interoperability
  • Define a path to proper planning while considering Clinical, IT, Clinical Engineering and Administrative needs
  • Detect nuances on the effects of Cybersecurity, Integration, and Interoperability on 10-Year Capital Planning
