With a particular focus on managed services, we are regarded as a highly dynamic and progressive advisory firm with a solid reputation for excellence.
Innovations in pervasive computing and ambient intelligence now make the creation of a ‘digital’ or ‘smart’ hospital a possibility, allowing health systems to re-organize their care delivery model to embrace a connected health strategy that leverages digital communications, such as ICAT – Information, Communication and Automation Technology – and the Internet of Things (IoT).
MES addresses many of the challenges faced by health systems in relation to medical equipment. MES involves the outsourcing of all aspects of a portfolio of medical equipment to a third party that specializes in providing managed services. The MES provider procures, installs, trains users, manages and maintains the portfolio of medical equipment for a long-term, typically ranging from 10 to 20 years or more.
HMSC is regarded as a highly dynamic and progressive advisory firm with a solid reputation for excellence, and are best known for our ability to successfully deliver large projects. The last three managed services projects we delivered had a combined value topping $1 billion.
We have a reputation for innovation, responsiveness and quality work that is completed on-time, on budget and without any unnecessary drain on our client’s internal resources. We aim to explain complex matters in simple, concise language that facilitates decision-making and allows the project to proceed without getting bogged down unnecessarily.
