Materials Management

Medical/surgical supplies account for a hospital’s second largest area of expense, second only to labor.1

Materials Management

Many healthcare organizations only focus on the acquisition cost of surgical instrumentation, but miss a tremendous opportunity to bring value and reduce the hidden costs of ownership:

  • Sterilization & Cleaning Costs
  • Warranty/Repair Costs
  • Disposal Costs

Partner with Microline to determine the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your current surgical instruments and decrease these hidden costs, while providing surgeons with the devices they need to deliver optimal care.
