Let’s say your hospital or ASC has come to a point where you have realized that acquiring new cataract equipment is inevitable. Your current equipment is old and outdated, repairs and maintenance costs are becoming more frequent, and your surgeon is starting to request the latest technology on the market. You will likely be met with 2 options to meet your future needs…purchase or look for a cataract outsourcing service.
1) Purchase new equipment. With this option, not only will you need the upfront funds to purchase the equipment, but you will also likely have to invest in ongoing maintenance packages, software upgrades, and future repair costs. All of these costs cause the profitability of your cataract cases to be quite low for years due to your upfront investment. You will also need to factor in storage space, training for your staff, etc.
2) Outsource with SDI. Our cataract outsourcing model enables you to start doing cataracts (or upgrade your old equipment) with NO upfront costs. There is no need to purchase costly equipment, or pay for preventative maintenance plans, or use up valuable storage space in your facility. Our pricing is factored on a per/case basis so your cases are profitable to your facility from day 1.
In addition, SDI provides IOL consignments, ancillary inventory supplies from all the major ophthalmic manufacturers, and a dedicated Surgical Coordinator on the day of surgery. Our coordinators are manufacturer trained to operate the equipment in assistance to your staff and surgeon.
