Implementing Best Practices for Equipment Maintenance: End Users Share Successes – Part 2
Last week’s post discussed the value of a seamless implementation process through the successes of an ambulatory care center. This week we highlight another successful implementation with a healthcare clinic in the Midwest, that has served its customers for nearly three decades. The facility provides routine care as well as more complex services such as cataract surgery. The team of specialists are backed by a highly trained nursing and office staff located within three offices. The Clinical Manager oversees the technicians and nurses on staff all while managing the equipment for all three facilities.
When the Clinical Manager began overseeing the clinic’s equipment, she found that the previous manager had left out a lot of detailed, pertinent information needed about the equipment they owned. She also discovered that they had many pieces of equipment already on the Remi program which made the decision to transition all equipment under one program that much easier.
Implementing Best Practices for Equipment Maintenance: End Users Share Successes
One of the critical pieces with Remi’s Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP) is the implementation process. This is the proactive step of verifying all necessary information about the equipment upfront, so that if a failure does occur or preventative maintenance needs to be scheduled—required information like model number, serial number, equipment location, etc. are easily accessible and can streamline the process. Now, with Remi you can request service online.
This blog series explores two customer successes. Both case studies highlight the importance of implementation and offer some best practices to help organization’s prepare for a successful implementation and equipment maintenance program.
Check out the blog and customer success story.
[Case Study] Community-based Hospital Makes the Switch to Get the Most from their EMMP
A leading independent community-based hospital located within the Midwest was ready to find a new Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP) that would be a better fit for their business. “Through the years, I’ve been exposed to various vendors and programs. With very few exceptions, the costs of these program’s services far outweighed the benefits to our small rural hospital. All we really need is reliable service and maintenance. We do not want a lot of bells and whistles or constant tips for add-on offerings. Too often these systems start off at a great price but as we add equipment, they became cost prohibited,” explained the hospital’s CEO.

Streamlining Equipment Maintenance: How ISO Certification, Software, and Equipment Maintenance Management Played a Significant Role in a Successful Program – Part 3
With a seamless process in place, the Quality Control Supervisor for the Department of Transportation (DOT) knew there was one additional hurdle—the management process for equipment maintenance.
Prior to working with Remi, the DOT would go through an extensive process when equipment failed or even when preventative maintenance or calibrations were required to keep the ISO certification.
Read the blog to see how the DOT was able to improve their process with Remi’s EMMP.
Streamlining Equipment Maintenance: How ISO Certification, Software, and Equipment Maintenance Management Played a Significant Role in a Successful Program – Part 2
Last week we talked about ISO certification and the equipment tracking software required. The post is based on an interview Remi conducted with a client who is the Quality Control Supervisor at a Department of Transportation (DOT) state office. The DOT needed to find a way to help them manage equipment, track calibrations and remind them of preventative maintenance for more than 2,500 pieces of equipment. Asset Management Software seemed like the right choice.
