Author(s): Mukunda Chaudhary and Dr. Vinay Pratap Singh
Abstract: Efficient management of medical equipment is critical for ensuring the delivery of effective healthcare services in public hospitals, particularly in resource-constrained settings like India. This research paper focuses on the practical application of a measurement tool developed specifically for evaluating the performance of Medical Equipment Management Systems (MEMS) in Indian public healthcare facilities. The study involves the implementation of the customized measurement tool in a diverse set of public hospitals across India. It aims to assess the current state of MEMS performance and identify areas for improvement in equipment availability, maintenance, calibration, inventory management, and user satisfaction. Real-world data will be collected through surveys, interviews, and on-site observations. The research will provide a comprehensive analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of MEMS in the Indian public healthcare context. It will also facilitate benchmarking across different hospitals and regions, enabling healthcare administrators and policymakers to make informed decisions to enhance the overall efficiency of healthcare services. By applying the measurement tool and analyzing the results, this study seeks to contribute to the ongoing efforts to optimize the management of medical equipment in Indian public hospitals. It will provide actionable insights to improve the allocation of resources, streamline maintenance processes, and enhance the overall quality of patient care. The findings may also have broader implications for similar healthcare settings globally, underscoring the importance of tailored approaches to MEMS performance evaluation in diverse healthcare environments.
