Toshiba Medical Introduces Customized PM Service Offering

To ensure imaging systems are operating safely and at optimum performance with appropriate and preventative maintenance, Toshiba Medical introduces its customized PM Only Service Agreement to customers. The PM Only Service Agreement allows providers to fulfill and document that they are compliant with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Directive and The Joint Commission’s (TJC) guidelines of ensuring all imaging equipment meets manufacturers’ specifications.

Toshiba Medical’s PM Only Service Agreement provides ongoing preventative maintenance and service of all imaging equipment according to specifications designated by the manufacturer. A completed PM Checklist for each diagnostic imaging system records all PM inspections, enabling health care providers to validate compliance with the CMS Directive and/or TJC, if requested. Health care providers unable to show they are meeting these specifications may be penalized – including cuts in reimbursement.

“We listened to our customers’ needs and in response created a simple solution to verify that health care providers are being compliant with this directive,” said Tim Peeler, vice president, Service Business Unit, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. “The PM Only Service Agreement also benefits providers by reducing unnecessary system downtime and ensuring equipment is operating safely and effectively.”
