Telangana is all set to implement a ‘Biomedical Equipment Maintenance Policy’ in the coming weeks. The first-of-its-kind policy in India would ensure the upkeep and repair of all government #hospitalequipment.
The equipment would be classified into four categories based on price and warranty period validity. For example, equipment under warranty falls into category 1. Under Telangana State Medical Services and Infrastructure development corporation (TSMIDC), a call center would be established for #hospitaladministrations to alert engineers if any equipment broke down. To address the problem, biomedical engineers would work with manufacturers and the hospital administration.
