Every medical equipment planner has two goals: completing projects on budget, and on time. Change, no matter how big or how small, could threaten both of these goals because change costs money and ultimately causes delays.
Although change isn’t ideal, it’s often unavoidable — and can even make the outcome of a project better. Construction projects are inherently organic, dynamic endeavors with many twists and turns along the journey. The key is for equipment planners to leverage their skills — and the right tools — to manage change as effectively as possible.
Here are four real-world examples of how equipment planners have been able to successfully embrace change, thanks to Attainia by Revalize, and the platform’s comprehensive suite of medical equipment planning solutions.
The challenge: To set up a new medical facility, planners needed to procure 450 IV pumps.
The solution: During procurement, the FDA issued a mass-recall of the exact IV pump planners had specified, delaying availability and shipping past the initial project completion date. Thanks to Attainia’s comprehensive product comparison feature, the team quickly identified alternative IV pumps with the necessary specs.
The result: Planners ordered new models in a matter of hours with no increase in project cost or delays to the schedule.
