医療機器も付加価値で採用を決める時代

医療機器も付加価値で採用を決める時代に入りました。医療従事者は、新しい報酬モデルに対応するために必要な有効性や効果に関する多くのデータを提供する必要があります。本来の業務に専念するためにも、医療機器には優れた分析機能や医療情報システムとの情報交換を自動的に行える機能が求められており、信頼のおけるコンピュータや情報通信ネットワークシテムが必要不可欠になってきています。また、医療機器を輸出する上では各国の貿易管理にある規格取得が必要になります。

長期供給可能なグローバルPCを提供

医療機器のリプレース周期は5年以上になるのが一般的。また、医療機器向けのPCは、医療用具と認識される場合もあります。5年供給+6年保守をガイドラインとするコンテックの産業用コンピュータが多くの医療機器メーカー様に採用いただいている理由はここにあります。

各国への輸出や展開に必要な規格取得ができるのもコンテックグループの大きな強み。コンテックはお客様のグローバル展開のためのビジネスパートナーです。

BECKMAN COULTER

As part of a corporate wide initiative, Beckman Coulter, Inc. was committed to lowering the cost of their diagnostic instruments, which include 18 product lines manufactured in three different locations in the U.S. The company wanted to use fewer components in each device, pay less for the components they used, and reduce the size of the instruments to a small form factor chassis. When contacted by BCI, long-time supplier Contec suggested that they not only look for fewer and less costly components but ways to reduce the number of configurations across their product lines. This would allow BCI to significantly reduce the cost of changes and revalidation.

Lookout Worldwide Inc

Lookout Worldwide sought help with the design, development, and production of its alarm system for boats, vessels, and industrial equipment. Its unique Ambush alarm system would not only help owners recover items when stolen but would include breakthrough prevention capability by measuring much smaller changes in alignment and location than was possible from GPS monitoring alone, alerting authorities before vessels had moved more than a few feet. But the Ambush system would require a combination of high end communications, including GSM radio technology, iridium satellite technology, and digital compass technology, along with a GPS system, accelerometers, firmware, and software to allow the system to interface with a user friendly online database. The key challenge was to put all of this technology together in a small package and keep manufacturing costs down, while ensuring the highest possible standards of performance and reliability. “Although we were offering a product that does more than any other on the market, we knew it still had to be priced competitively,” said Lookout Worldwide’s Vice President and Marketing Manager, Ernie Sosa. “And it had to perform at the highest level. We chose Contec after visiting their manufacturing facility and seeing how dedicated they are to quality.”

MTS Medication Technologies

Despite its long history of excellence and innovation, MTS Medication Technologies’ reputation was in jeopardy. Its third-party provider's inability to meet MTS’ stringent quality standards was resulting in disappointed customers and missed sales goals. Frustrated with the existing cabinets, customers were unwilling to purchase MTS' latest offerings, which impacted the company's sales, said Brett Smith, Director of Procurement, Purchasing and Supply Chain. "It slowed down our marketing and sales efforts," he noted. Fed up with these unacceptable results and the impact these flaws were having on MTS' bottom line and reputation, MTS considered building the cabinets in-house. But that would mean hiring people, adding expensive resources and shifting MTS' focus away from its core competencies, Smith said.
