New VS Remanufactured?
I don’t like to use analogies, but everyone likes a new car. It is shiny and has lots of features, but at the end of the day it’s still transportation. Much like the car, remanufactured medical equipment gets people from point A to point B. Many people may not realize that the basic functions of many diagnostic products have not really changed much over the years. So let’s take a deeper look at why true remanufactured equipment resonates so much more with our current healthcare environment. If I was to tell you that I could provide you with a high quality piece of equipment that would serve all your needs, include a warranty, and be at a price point that provided 30% to 50% or more savings over the competition, you would ask to sign on the dotted line. MES remanufactured equipment carries quality brand names, brings it up to standards that have competitive life cycles, and, you guessed it, 30%-50% savings over new equipment.
I would guess that would make quite a compelling argument for remanufactured, but the story for remanufactured does not end here. Because we take a product that would have ended up in a landfill and make it relevant again, remanufactured is a true green alternative. In summary, high quality remanufactured equipment like the equipment provided by Medical Equipment Source serves our healthcare system on many levels. The story will continue. Look for our next article on the differences between refurbished and remanufactured.
