Anchor Planning can benefit your facility in endless ways, thanks to our medical equipment planning services. Our women-owned business has offices on both coasts, and we work closely with private and government healthcare operations worldwide. We take your budget, needs, and goals into account when providing services for inventory, coordination, distribution, and more. Our solutions are realistic and effective.
We are very familiar with the complicated healthcare industry and know all the steps required to perform a detailed and concise medical equipment inventory. A proper list lays the groundwork for further procurement, management, and design. At Anchor Planning, we strive to be the source for everything related to medical equipment and healthcare facilities.
Capital Equipment Replacement Planning
We’ll review your capital medical assets with a thorough analysis of replacement needs based on variables such as FDA recalls, maintenance costs, etc. The result is a three-, five- or seven-year plan for capital replacement spending.
Existing Medical Equipment Inventory
We develop a medical equipment inventory for the basis of an equipment plan which defines reuse versus new purchases. You choose a summary or detailed inventory assessment based on your specific needs.
We compile a room-by-room equipment budget for your program or a summary budget based on a concept. Equipment is only second to construction in project costs, so it’s important to budget this correctly.
Medical Equipment Planning
We balance the needs of patient care, healthcare technology, and program requirements during the planning process while working with your project team. We assist in specifying every piece of equipment and ensure team members have information to validate their decisions.
Medical Equipment Procurement Management
We offer medical equipment procurement assistance to aid your purchasing department’s process. We gather purchasing schedules, request bids and quotes, analyze prices, negotiate and write purchase order requisitions, and provide reports. Our team closely tracks the budget and prides itself on your ongoing savings.
We review FF&E and coordinate with the construction team to ensure that the design and plan meet vendor-specific requirements. Our staff manages the install schedule, logistics, delivery, installation, and training coordination. We also offer on-site support for check-in and placement for all new equipment.
We focus on facility operations, including inter-departmental patient flow, care model integration, communication, processes, training, and education. This lets your team focus on patient care while our professionals engage you as needed to ensure transition success.
This service targets owner-related activities, pre- and post-construction, and before occupancy. We proactively manage the owner activity schedule, including signage, equipment, security, IS, cleaning, marketing, keys, linen, and distribution to ensure the opening date is met.
New hospitals and renovations are only as functional as their smallest details. We compile detailed schedules and facility readiness plans, including interim security plans, food delivery, supplies, linen, EVS supplies, medications, and item stocking. We coordinate a mock go-live to ensure nothing is missed.
Moving multiple patients can be overwhelming for everyone involved. Our patient relocation plans consider all potential issues, including travel paths, pharmaceutical needs, and critical care equipment. We coordinate with EMS and staff to conduct practice runs, confirming plan feasibility and safety.
Hospital Move Management
We meet and coordinate with staff, create move plans and schedules, and provide on-site supervision and management. Our move plans include events such as IS disconnects, required vendor involvement, MEP support, clinical engineering needs, and dietary/pharmacy stocking.
We remain on-site after your facility opens to provide one contact for all staff needs, questions, and concerns. We operate a command center and triage action items to responsible parties.
