      How does the Contract Management Program work?

      Bio-Electronics, in partnership with Mediserve, offers various programs which function by consolidating equipment service contracts into one maintenance management agreement. Mediserve pays for the preventative and corrective maintenance of that equipment. By offering Programs that are custom designed for your organization, Mediserve is able to deliver immediate and on-going equipment service cost savings compared to your current spend.

      How long has Mediserve offered these types of Programs?

      Bio-Electronics partnered with Mediserve in 2015. However, Mediserve has offered equipment maintenance management programs since 1982 and has built the largest database of equipment service history in this industry. This information provides unparalleled data to help you effectively manage and reduce the total cost of equipment ownership.

      How do we save money using the Program?

      Savings are accomplished by converting to a consolidated, managed time and materials-based program. With this approach, Mediserve pools equipment service expense across various equipment categories into one comprehensive maintenance agreement. This further reduces overall maintenance expense and administrative cost and duties associated with managing vendor contracts, relationships and payments. In addition to hard-dollar and administrative savings, you will also have a predictable budget for future forecasting.

      Who repairs our equipment?

      By utilizing Bio-Electronics’ Contract Management Program, you have the freedom to select your vendor. Normally, your current service provider will continue to service your equipment under the Mediserve program. At your request, Mediserve will offer alternative service providers, which can be the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or independent service organization (ISO), to maintain your equipment in lieu of your current service provider. In addition to OEM and ISO service providers, Mediserve will reimburse your organization an in-house rate for labor costs and the cost of parts.

      How do we get a Proposal?

      Contact Bio-Electronics to arrange for an on-site financial evaluation of your equipment maintenance costs. The extent and the type of analysis will be determined by your current situation. There is normally no charge for this evaluation.

      Does all of our equipment have to be on the Program?

      No, it’s your decision to include or exclude individual pieces of equipment for coverage on the Program.

      Can we add or delete equipment mid-term?

      You can add or delete equipment from the Program at any time based on a pro-rata calculation.

      What is the term of the Contract Management Programs?

      Programs range from one to five-year terms and can be renewed at the end of the agreement.
