Advantus and GE HealthCare Announce Deal to Expand HTM Service Access

Advantus and GE HealthCare

On March 2, 2023, Advantus Health Partners, a healthcare solutions company that improves supply chain models for healthcare organizations, and GE HealthCare, one of the world's largest medical equipment maintenance companies, announced a 10-year, $760 million agreement to provide GE HealthCare's HTM services to Advantus Health Partners' clients.

Advantus Health Partners' clients can use the Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) program to manage all medical equipment in a healthcare facility. This includes regular maintenance, checking for recalls and taking care of them, cleaning and distributing the equipment, and so on.

The program's proactive data security monitoring and efforts to standardize how healthcare organizations manage their equipment can help clients cut costs and boost productivity. Besides, the clients will also have access to Encompass, a real-time locating system from GE HealthCare that records and pinpoints a provider's equipment so that caregivers can spend more time with patients and less time looking for it. In addition, a proactive servicing plan for endoscopes is offered as part of an advanced scopes program and advanced asset management.

Mohamed El-Demerdash, GE HealthCare U.S. and Canada Services President, expressed, "We are excited to build a healthier future by managing the comprehensive service needs of healthcare providers and helping ensure they have the latest technology available to provide quality care to their patients." He added, "Together with Advantus Health Partners, we will support health care organizations as they continue to evolve and adapt to meet their ever-changing needs and those of the communities they serve."
