Siemens to partner HFMA to educate healthcare finance personnel about MES

Siemens Healthcare UK : 17 June, 2008  (Company News)
Siemens Medical is forming a new corporate partnership with the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) that will enable both organizations to draw on the common objectives that include raising the awareness of Managed Equipment Services (MES) to finance directors and managers of NHS Trusts in the UK.
The partnership will also look to open two-way dialogue on topics such as the value for money aspects of MES, asset management and risk transfer.

“We have been supporters of the HFMA and its goals for some considerable time,” stated Paul Milligan, head of PFI and Major Projects at Siemens. “This corporate partnership cements the relationship formally and allows us to work in synergy with the association nationally and regionally. This will include networking at events, speaker slots at conferences and providing thought leadership for member papers.”

“We are delighted to welcome Siemens to our corporate partner programme,” stated Mark Knight, chief executive of HFMA. “It is important for NHS finance managers to be aware of all the options open to them for replacing, renewing and maintaining their assets. Siemens is a major provider of managed equipment services to NHS organisations and the corporate partner programme offers a good platform for them to deliver their MES message.”

Siemens is the market leading provider of Managed Equipment Services to NHS Trusts having pioneered the concept in 1997. The company offers a vendor independent and multi vendor approach despite being a manufacturer and provider of medical solutions. Customer sites are given an informed choice on what equipment replacement and renewal path to take as part of a stable, long term approach to managing technology and financial planning. Having access to the expertise and technology that only a medical manufacturing company has, provides customers with access to not only leading edge developments, but also in-depth analysis of patient workflow to ensure cost efficient and effective use of technology.

HFMA will support Siemens in promoting its MES message via events and meetings. The networking opportunities will answer many frequently asked questions about MES. The first planned event is the HFMA Annual Foundation Trust Conference in Warwickshire, UK, on 10 to 11 July, 2008.
