Achieving sustainable cost savings is a critical imperative for many U.S. health systems. Sharp and continuing margin declines, as
well as the operational aftereffects of the historically high mergers and acquisitions activity, have left many health systems feeling
financially pressured and searching for answers. Service model change should be pursued through a balanced approach. Careful
consideration of a number of factors will be needed to help avoid unplanned downtime or suboptimal asset performance that can
have serious effects, such as lost revenue opportunity, unexpected costs, disrupted workflow, frustrated biomedical and clinical
staff, and decreased patient satisfaction. There are multiple options and models to consider.
