Supporting and servicing health technology today is more challenging that ever.  Biomedical/Clinical Engineering professionals are struggling in keeping up with rapid introduction of new technologies, lack of resources, JCAHO PM pressures, and competition from manufacturers and independent service organizations.  This is specially difficult when many physicians and administrators have not yet understood the "iceberg" principle shown below.

Because of the vast experience of its talented consultants, BSI is uniquely positioned to assist technology managers to make the right decision for their particular environment in every part of the technology management life cycle.
