Clinical Engineering

The Clinical Engineering program will encompass a comprehensive approach to managing biomedical, diagnostic imaging, and laboratory equipment; whether in a hospital, clinic, laboratory, or research environment. The program will focus on the quality of care, customer service, and patient safety – with a commitment to excellence, reliability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility.

Operating Room EquipmentUHealth clinical engineers are some of the best trained medical equipment specialists in their field. All technicians undergo a rigorous background and technical competency verification prior to service of any medical equipment – ensuring that all medical equipment are maintained and serviced to manufacturer’s specifications.

UHealth clinical engineers will work with your department leadership to develop appropriate service strategies for each piece of equipment in their area. These strategies will be based on equipment category, age, and usage as well as on desired availability, replacement part cost, and other factors.

The clinical engineering computerized maintenance management system (Medimizer) maintains detailed equipment maintenance inventories, records, and schedules —and provides the documentation required for compliance purposes, including The Joint Commission (TJC), The Agency For Health Care Administration (AHCA), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the College of American Pathologists (CAP).

UHealth clinical engineers adhere to a vision of integrity and constant improvement. We empower our clinical engineers to take the course of action they believe is right in every service event. We are committed to accurately diagnose and solve problems, which result in greater equipment uptime and utilization for our staff.

UHealth clinical engineers will be dispatched quickly, even on non-emergency calls, to ensure your equipment performs optimally.
