Advancements expand knowledge for clinical engineers and reduce
backorder time of critical parts that represent 127,262 days of delays

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AAMIExchange2019PartsSource,
the only fully-integrated, supply chain procurement and advanced
logistics platform, has expanded access to critical stock, advanced
training, and decision support for technology management and clinical
engineering teams through the release of PartsSource Pro 2019.

“We’re ultimately measured on equipment uptime,” said Doug Kirsop,
System HTM Director at OhioHealth. “Our speed to repair for
equipment relies on our ability to predict downtime, our knowledge of
how to maintain or fix equipment, and the availability of products we
need. PartsSource Pro helps us succeed in each of those areas to keep
equipment up and running for our patients.”

PartsSource Pro 2019 delivers three new benefits: guaranteed
availability of mission-critical parts; integration of technical
documentation for part validation, and discounted elite training courses
in equipment maintenance. As a result of this release, members of the
PartsSource Pro community will be further equipped to speed-up repair,
ensure clinical availability, and lower their cost of service.

Data Science-Powered Guaranteed Stock

When suppliers have back ordered parts or are slow to ship, it leads to
delays in repair, along with lost revenue, waiting patients, and idle
staff.

To speed time-to-repair, PartsSource leverages data science and
predictability of which mission-critical replacement parts are out of
stock or slow to ship. These critical products now will be guaranteed
in-stock at the PartsSource warehouse, ready for prompt shipment to
members of the PartsSource Pro community, saving customers significant
stock out or backorder days.

Instant Access to Technical Documentation

Before a purchase, a clinical engineer often must validate a repair or
replacement part against the equipment make and model to ensure the
right product is selected. Part validation can be difficult because
technical documentation of the equipment is often outdated or difficult
to access. As a result, the wrong part may be ordered inadvertently,
causing uptime delays.

To improve part identification, PartsSource Pro now offers an
integration to equipment documentation inside the PartsSource online
platform, providing instant access to the most up-to-date manual and
preventive maintenance schedules for validated part selection.

Rebates on Elite Online Training Courses

Clinical engineers are increasingly managing more advanced equipment,
which can be difficult when advanced training courses are required to
learn the intricacies of the equipment but professional educational
budgets are tight or non-existent.

Now, members of the PartsSource Pro community will receive a discounted
rate on hundreds of elite training courses for radiology, mammography,
CT, ultrasound, networking, PACS, and DICOM, that will help them lower
cost of service and improve uptime.

“While we started as a parts company, hundreds of top performing
healthcare organizations in our PartsSource Pro community rely on us to
help standardize procurement processes, pricing and products and hold us
accountable to improve productivity, cost savings and quality,” said
Philip Settimi, M.D., President and CEO of PartsSource. “The release of
PartsSource Pro 2019 further empowers customers with real-time access to
information, advanced training and critical products to get mission
critical assets up and running for their patients.”
