  • Agency : BBiomedical Equipments, Radiology, Fortis Hospital, USG, Doppler Test, ECHO
  • Objective : To find the capacity utilization of equipments To find lifecycle costing of the equipments (per month) To know about Equipment Audit Details To suggest some measures to increase the quality of Radiology unit The main aim was to determine the Revenue, Margin (Net Profit), Return on Investment & Break Even Point for the Radiology Department of the Hospital.
  • Background : Not Available
    Abstract:The project was undertaken on Biomedical Equipments of Radiology Department. Equipments present in Radiology department of hospital are Portable & Fixed X-Ray Machine (SIEMENS), Automatic Film Processor (Prognosis) and Ultrasonography (Wipro GE Health Care) which can perform USG, ECHO& Doppler Test.
  • Methodology :
  • Findings : Not Available

    Result:For Equipment Audit- The downtime was less than the uptime. The equipment was repaired the same date of the breakdown. For capacity Utilization- Wipro GE HealthCare (Vivid 3PRO) capacity is more than that of SIEMENS (Polyskop-5-Heliophos D).The Capacity utilized by the ECHO is more than the other tests. For Lifecycle Costing of Radiology department (per month):- Total Cost incurred in a month with Depreciation =Rs.4,93,562 Total Cost incurred in a month without Depreciation =Rs.4,55,531 Total Revenue = Rs.10,69,200 Margin (Net profit) =Rs.5,75,638 Return on Investment = 19% Break Even Point= 5 months approximately
  • Recommendations :
To find the capacity utilization of equipments To find lifecycle costing of the equipments (per month) To know about Equipment Audit Details
