Having worked with medical professionals across the country to finance essential medical equipment, our team knows all too well the implications new equipment can have on growing a practice. It supports you in providing the best patient care possible. It retains patients in your practice versus referring them to other doctors. It improves patient satisfaction via better diagnosis accuracy and treatment plans. It can even increase the number of patients you can see due to improved efficiencies. And, if the medical equipment you want is the latest technology with limited availability in your area, it makes you more competitive in your specialty. All or any combination of these can grow your practice.
Despite all the benefits and advantages of financing medical equipment, it’s not always easy for medical professionals to find a lender willing to work with their unique situation. That’s where the expertise of a lending partner, like Global Financial & Leasing Services (GFLS), comes into play. Our team works with all types of medical professionals, such as those who open their own practice or a new location, have recently graduated medical school, are adding additional services to their practice or want to invest in new or upgraded medical equipment. And just as importantly, those who have less-than-perfect credit and aren’t likely to be approved for financing through traditional banks.
Given the high cost of medical equipment, financing makes sense for several reasons.
Financing medical equipment lets you keep cash reserves on hand. Though you have a medical practice, you know it operates as a business with many of the same expenses others businesses have. Between payroll, office space rent, utilities, malpractice and other insurance, software subscriptions, school loans and more, buying medical equipment outright is not feasible financially for many. Financing a medical equipment purchase or lease allows you to keep cash for other expenses or emergencies, and the monthly payment becomes a more affordable monthly expense.
Financing essential medical equipment results in better care and increased patient satisfaction. Having access to essential medical equipment allows you to better care for your patients, regardless of your specialty, and especially if you’re in a quickly evolving field. As medical equipment becomes more advanced, it becomes far easier to quickly diagnosis and begin a treatment plan, which can improve or even save patients’ lives. Medical equipment is critical to patient care, and financing shouldn’t keep you from providing the best. The better the outcomes, the more patient satisfaction scores improve, affecting your overall practice, reimbursements and referrals. New or upgraded medical equipment gives you the technology you need for more accurate diagnostics, and higher patient satisfaction rates.
Medical equipment financing brings new technology to your patients. Of course, this is an opportunity to improve patient care and outcomes, but also, it’s a way to be more competitive in your specialty. Given the choice between a practice with old technology versus the latest in the field, patients are likely to choose a practice offering state-of-the-art equipment. Keep in mind, medical technology can evolve quickly. Purchasing equipment outright typically means you’ll keep it longer for a better ROI. By financing an equipment lease, you can choose to end the lease and finance a better piece of equipment when your term is over or purchase and keep it.
