A buying guide for Diagnostic Systems category – enriched with research on Diagnostic Systems procurement spend patterns, Diagnostic Systems pricing intelligence, market dynamics and top suppliers of Diagnostic Systems.
Diagnostic Systems is an essential part of the Medical and Surgical Equipment and Supplies category which includes all spend related to any durable machine, instrument, implement or implant used by clinicians for the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring or treatment (whether invasive or non-invasive) of medical conditions. The products may also be used for life support, modification or replacement of part(s) of anatomy, conception control and disinfection of other medical equipment.
A changing ecosystem within the Medical and Surgical Equipment and Supplies market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Diagnostic Systems. Buyers that have multiple locations under management are increasingly opting for a single supplier who can deliver the preferred solutions in a consistent manner across locations. Often suppliers with a physical presence across key geographies are preferred in such cases.The growing need for highly skilled workforce specialized in Diagnostic Systems is driving suppliers to increase compensation for experience professionals to retain them. This is inflating their OPEX and causing increase in procurement costs.Providers are increasing their adoption of new tools and technologies to optimize efficiencies and reduce the time taken to launch products in the market. This is adding to their OPEX and will have an inflationary impact on the overall price paid by the buyers.
The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Diagnostic Systems procurement. For example, It is important for category managers to track and measure the performance of suppliers against a set of defined KPIs that are agreed upon during the contract negotiation phase. The performance of suppliers can also be linked to a portion of their fee that can be paid upon rendering of services in a satisfactory manner. Investing in benchmarking studies help category managers enhance their knowledge about market pricing or billing rates based on job roles and functions. This allows them to not only save costs but also negotiate with suppliers. For example, while negotiating on rates of bundled services, buyers can save significantly on a single service by cross verifying the rates quoted by suppliers against industry benchmarks. Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of subcontracted services that are not part of their service providers' portfolios. This is necessary to ensure service consistency and control over sensitive data that are shared with sub-contracted firms.
