CMEPP, An Alternative to OEM Contracts
Date: January 24, 2014 11:30 AM - 01:30 PM ET
Presenter: Peter Austin, P.Eng, MBA (GM, CMEPP)
The Canadian Medical Equipment Protection Plan, CMEPP, is a medical equipment maintenance management program that provides savings on the maintenance of sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic equipment for Canadian Hospitals. The program operates on a not-for-profit basis and offers Participants an alternative to expensive maintenance contracts and commercial maintenance insurance programs. Participants contribute their maintenance funds to a “Pool”. These funds are then used to pay for preventive and remedial maintenance services as well as the administration of the CMEPP program. Participants also benefit from the expertise of the Clinical Engineering Departments of Canadian Teaching Hospitals who provide their technical support and advise on equipment maintenance.
