Integration of Healthcare System with its Experts for Improving the Life Expectancy of Medical Devices : A Review

Authors(3) :-Majid Murtaza Noor, Dr Imtiyaz A Magray, Seema Chawla

This paper provides the structure of healthcare system in India and analyses recent developments in the derivation of bio-medical equipment’s maintenance & management strategies, and proposes some specific points to consider and offer to perform them during operation. We also envisage the new challenges in the healthcare system in India which represent an important economic position and are subject of everyday optimization attempts. For this purpose by now exists a huge number of tools which conduce more likely to a complexness of the problem by a comprehensive implementation. In the future, we envision that new paradigms to be structured to overcome the present strategies which will benefit & upgrade the rural and urban healthcare system with reduction in patient risks, and in the longer term, provide an alternative source for maintenance and management of medical devices at hospitals in the form of biomedical engineering department.
