According to the results of a recent study, hospitals can potentially minimize the number of medical equipment breakdowns or failures if they use effective, carefully planned and monitored maintenance management methods. The medical equipment needed can range from highly sophisticated life support systems in tertiary hospitals to the simplest devices needed to accurately diagnose and safely treat patients in primary care. For hospitals to achieve these goals, they must develop and implement an initiative known as a Medical Equipment Management Program (MEMP), which outlines the actions that must be taken to mitigate the risks associated with specific medical devices. Gear. Inspection and preventive maintenance are essential parts of that plan and must be regularly reviewed and updated to keep up with the rapid technological advances in medical devices and the growing expectations of healthcare organizations. According to the latest information gathered on the subject, Indian public hospitals currently do not have a comprehensive metric or "framework to assess the performance of MEMS. This study is carried out with the aim of developing a model or framework for MEMS that can serve as an integrated tool, using key performance indicators (KPIs) as the unit of measurement".
