Miga Solutions


Miga Solutions Saves Hospitals 12-16% on Medical Equipment Lifecycle Costs. Guaranteed.

The medical equipment lifecycle represents the largest portion of hospital spending not yet adequately addressed by hospitals. Lacking accurate information, internal resources, bandwidth, and specialized expertise, even diligent hospitals are missing savings of $12,000 per bed annually despite their best efforts using old-generation benchmarking information and tools.  Miga’s Benchmarking 2.0® approach provides hospitals with the ability to confidently make and execute smarter spending decisions by combining the most complete and accurate pricing information with services that make it easier to get that price. And only Miga’s Equipment Value Management System® (EVMS) can deliver these savings.
