Development and validation of a comprehensive measurement tool for evaluating the performance of medical equipment management systems (Mems) in Indian public Hospitals
Author(s): Mukunda Chaudhary and Dr. Vinay Pratap Singh
Abstract: Effective management of medical equipment is paramount for delivering quality healthcare services in public hospitals. The study aims to develop and validate a robust measurement tool specifically tailored for assessing the performance of Medical Equipment Management Systems (MEMS) in the context of Indian public healthcare facilities. This research responds to the unique challenges faced by public hospitals in India, such as resource constraints, high patient loads, and diverse healthcare needs. The research methodology involves a multi-step approach. First, a systematic review of existing MEMS performance measurement frameworks and tools will be conducted to identify gaps and opportunities for customization to the Indian healthcare environment. Subsequently, a comprehensive measurement tool will be developed, incorporating key performance indicators (KPIs) relevant to the Indian scenario. The tool will encompass aspects such as equipment availability, maintenance, calibration, inventory management, and user satisfaction. To validate the measurement tool, data will be collected from a representative sample of public hospitals across different regions of India. Through surveys, interviews, and on-site observations, the tool's effectiveness in assessing MEMS performance will be evaluated. Statistical analysis will be used to establish the tool's reliability and validity. The findings from this study are expected to offer insights into the strengths and weaknesses of MEMS in Indian public hospitals. It will provide hospital administrators, policymakers, and healthcare professionals with a valuable instrument to identify areas for improvement and optimize the utilization of medical equipment. Ultimately, this research can contribute to enhancing the quality and efficiency of healthcare services in public hospitals in India, with the potential for adaptation in similar healthcare settings globally.
