The Horizon Advantage ……Virtually You in Biomedical Technology Services!

 Some say that the sincerest form of flattery is emulation. At Horizon, we believe that our best practice is to host seamless “virtual-like you”  biomedical on-site solutions for our customers.

These solutions and human resources literally incorporate  your facility’s best practices all the while providing novel and unprecedented software technology, human assets and cost savings solutions.

Horizon CSAs virtual in-house biomedical programs  combine the best of both worlds which is to say  we incorporate  the best attributes of in-house departments with those of a experienced highly skilled company focused exclusively on clinical engineering.

We acknowledge that most well functioning in-house departments typically possess the following attributes;

1.     Management controls

2.     Organizational commitment,

3.    A Common purpose, goals and objectives,

4.     Teamwork, esprit de corps, camaraderie and a sense of community

5.     Integration within a strategic plan and comprehension of the facilities values.

However,  in-house departments typically found in modest-size hospitals are far too often understaffed, have limited skills due to lack of continuous training, are often “multi-tasking”
and doing tasks that are  completely unrelated to biomedical equipment services or medical technology management, are not properly deployed throughout the hospital for optimal  understanding of equipment issues and non-performance,  rely far too much on expensive OEM service and may  be capable of  providing  only a small piece of what is required to become a high performance clinical engineering operation.

Horizon CSA’s  on-site  solution-service programs  retain all of the best advantages of an in-house department plus  we carefully and artfully fill in the gaps that leave your facility wide open for negative consequences. We remediate the gaping holes in your biomedical equipment program with highly skilled, up-to-date, well trained technicians and leaders who are highly motivated  professionals who always perform.  Performance at Horizon CSA is measured frequently and our entire exisitence is predicated on the performance metrics with our healthcare providers.

7 Virtual Benefits to Healthcare Alliance  Biomedical Partners.

1.     A defined healthcare alliance career path for all existing hospital employees who become part of the Horizon CSA virtual team.

2.     A regulatory “track-record.” Horizon’s healthcare alliance partners are  “always ready”, customers never have to fear another unannounced inspection again.

3.    Disciplined-use of time-tested processes, use of department management tools and software that facilitate “best practices.

4.   We provide timely reports that contain  exactly the right information you need precisely when you need it.

5.     Global access to multiple parts sources and the professional  acumen required to work with all OEMS on your behalf in order to secure the most cost effective solutions and practices.

6.    Clear, undiluted and unbiased recommendations for all new medical equipment purchases because we do not have divided loyalties to any vendors. We are vendor neutral which has been identified as a strength by customers as opposed to the obvious liability of having conflicts of interests.

7.     Full participation on all clinical & administrative committees task forces. We assist you in crafting the best solutions and are measured by our recommendations.

The fact is that account integration is so complete, collaboration is so intimate and cooperation  is so effective that many clinical department heads simply assume that our staff are hospital employees.

The Horizon program will feel and perform like an in house program, but with the resources and expertise to take it to a measurable higher level.

Summarily, Horizon CSA takes pride in our mission-driven performance that aligns exquisitely with our clinical partners. You are the reason that we can co-create a relationship that resonates perfectly with the increased demands for healthcare regulatory compliance and to be sure, much higher ratings by the patients who are the ultimate consumers in your facility.

We invite you to think of the “Virtual 7” and contact us to see if your healthcare facility qualifies for a complimentary “Virtual 7” audit.
