Technology Management Cycle

Technology Management Cycle

Effective technology management cycles are about people; they also are about infrastructure, but fundamentally, they are about equipping people with the technical skills, organizational structures and supply chains to keep medical equipment in top shape to serve patients.

Because people are at the heart of a well-managed technical management cycle, it is key to focus on identifying and recruiting technical staff—people with expertise in infrastructure as well as people with specific medical equipment expertise. Technical training and maintenance workshops are provided in cooperation with health facilities. Skills of local technicians are developed in:

  • Preventative maintenance
  • Corrective maintenance
  • Provision of spare parts
  • Documentation of maintenance activities
