Tenacore LLC and OB Healthcare have entered into a strategic partnership, combining Tenacore’s depot-based, comprehensive healthcare technology solutions with OB Healthcare’s field-based preventive maintenance and project management solutions.
Health systems, independent service organizations (ISOs), and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) alike face occasional variability in biomedical engineering resource availability, especially in the event of large-scale medical equipment preventative maintenance (PM) projects. As a result, there is frequent demand for additional resources to manage these types of projects, which is where the companies say OB Healthcare excels. During project assessment, units that do not pass quality control and require further evaluation and/or repair will be sent directly to a Tenacore service depot, instead of working with a separate vendor or dispositioning these units. The new partnership allows clients to work under one agreement.
“This seamless solution allows for our customers to focus on managing their many other priorities and to be assured that their equipment will be quickly returned to patient use in full working order,” says Jim Willett, CEO, Tenacore LLC.
Through the Tenacore-OB Healthcare partnership, the organizations can deliver their On-Site Project Support, Service, and Repair solution. This differentiated solution is a hybrid medical equipment service offering, allowing both companies to deliver a combination of on-site project management and depot-based service and repair.
Leveraging proprietary software technology developed by OB Healthcare, the organizations are able to execute against large scale projects with speed and accuracy. “This software is exclusively tailored for the technicians performing preventative maintenance,” says Austin Otto, president, OB Healthcare. “It was designed with accurate and live reporting, enabling real-time status updates and the electronic delivery of service reports and documentation to a customer’s existing computerized maintenance management system (CMMS).”
The healthcare industry is continuing to evolve, and more demands are being placed on the healthcare technology management (HTM) community than ever before. The combined capabilities and market leading expertise of Tenacore and OB Healthcare represents a partnership designed to further support the HTM community by addressing these additional demands in a new and differentiated way.
