Feasibility Study for a Medical Electronic Equipment Service Centre

In an earlier survey project on medical equipments, it had been found that X-ray equipment was one of the most commonly used equipment in government institutions. The earlier study indicated that out of the 12 hospitals surveyed, 11 had x-ray equipment and in all accounted for 42.3% of the total medical electronic equipments. This project was launched to study the causes of equipment failure, the reasons for high down time and lacunae, if any, in the procedure being followed in repair and maintenance of equipment was selected on account of their widespread usage. It was felt that attempts should be made to simplify the present procedures for undertaking repairs, procuring consumables etc., such that the equipment could be used more effectively.
