It’s no secret that purchasing new surgical equipment can be a major investment for your medical, dental, or veterinary practice. Because of this, it is essential that you start planning for the purchase of your new surgical equipment early on.
To ensure you make the right decisions for your unique practice and that you purchase your surgical equipment at the right time, you should take the following factors into consideration:
- Time for training—How long will it take you to train your team how to use the new surgical equipment? Will you need specialized help to train your team members on how to properly use it? Consider what training and applicable costs look like when buying new equipment.
- Maintenance and service contracts—Most surgical equipment requires regular maintenance and service to operate correctly and safely. Think about what your practice will need to invest on an annual basis to keep the equipment up and running.
- Setup and installation—Most surgical equipment cannot be unwrapped from the box and immediately used. Think about what setting up the new equipment and installing it in your practice will involve.
- Time value of money—How much time will your practice save using the new surgical equipment versus how much you will spend? In many cases, new surgical equipment can greatly enhance the efficiency of certain operations and procedures, improving patient comfort, outcomes, and recovery times.
