Opportunity: Emergence of ISOs
The medical equipment maintenance and services sector was initially dominated by OEMs. However, OEMs typically charge more than third-party vendors, and often take longer for maintenance, resulting in higher associated costs as well as downtime. This situation, especially given the backdrop of continuing austerity measures and the need for cost-curtailment in global healthcare systems, has led to the emergence of ISOs dedicated to solely providing maintenance services.
With a strong team of experts, these organizations can cater to customers in situations where OEMs fail to offer satisfactory and time-efficient solutions. Moreover, ISOs offer services for multiple brands of medical devices, providing end users with a central, independent management platform for uniform service delivery across all asset groups, while reducing maintenance costs. This also helps reduce operating expenses and capital spending.
