is a non-profit organization which constitutes an initiative for the advancement of the applied field of Biomedical Technology.
INBIT aims to effectively promote the areas of Biomedical Technology Management, Assessment, Safety and Quality in the health care sector.
Biomedical Technology Management
The introduction of new technologies in healthcare, can be seen as improved diagnosis and treatment as well as increased efficiency of the services involved. At the same time, however, the implementation of these new improved technologies, introduces concerns on rising costs, safety and imposes new demands for tools and methods for their overall management. INBIT’s support services, for biomedical technology management, address a variety of technical and administrative issues, concerning the safe and efficient operation of medical equipment over the whole life cycle of its intended use.
The Biomedical Technology is an important parameter in both, determining the cost of health services and operating expenses of the hospital, and in assuring the quality of health services delivered to the patient. In such an environment, characterized by an increasingly strong demand for high quality health services, combined with the need to reduce costs, the rational management of biomedical equipment is particularly critical.
The management of the equipment consists of a series of procedures and requires special expertise in implementing any of them individually in order to achieve optimum results.
INBIT provides a range of services, aiming to the rational and financially advantageous management of biomedical technology in hospitals.
- Inventory of Equipment, using appropriate nomenclature, classification and codification tools
- Investment Planning, incluiding evaluation of needs & priority settings
- Technical Specifications
- Acceptance testing
- User reporting and medical device vigilance
- Safety Tests
- Use of management tools
