Brian Sung, MSEEPresident, General Medical Equipment
After working as a biomedical engineer at many hospitals, in-house or as a third-party provider, Brian Sung felt that there could be a tremendous improvement in quality, customer service and cost on repairs and parts. As the owner of a start-up business, Sung had to be both the salesman and technician that would visit hospitals and explain why General Medical Equipment (GME) is the best in service and share its mission, as well as vision, in health care.
“Life is like an endless jigsaw puzzle,” said Sung. “We will keep adding or removing pieces that we find are the best fit for the current situation. At the end of the day, we assimilate and adapt.”
For Sung, finishing school and gaining workforce experience has pushed the start of General Medical Equipment. While working as a hands-on biomedical engineer, Sung found that most running technological advancement systems and processes are stagnant.
“We envisioned a chance to transform the health care industry. In an industry such as biomedical engineering, repetition appears and that creates a lack of growth and learning. Continuous growth, learning and development are some of humanity’s greatest attributes. We thrive on evolution; we will never be perfect, but that does not mean we cannot strive to get close to it as much as possible,” he said.
TechNation discovered more about General Medical Equipment and its mission in a recent interview.
Q: What is the main focus of General Medical Equipment (GME)?
A: GME is a healthcare technology management company that encompasses every service of medical equipment, being a one-source provider to a hospital. We offer full support services while still maintaining the highest quality of service on equipment and limited delay in patient care. Our goal is not to replace your current staff, but to manage them more efficiently. These cost savings have allowed hospitals to readjust budgets and invest in new capital equipment, investment group opportunities and renovate current locations. GME is considered a spearhead of technology by partnering with Medzon who created new artificial intelligence and machine learning platforms.
Q: What services does GME offer?
A: We are a full-service support provider for biomed, imaging and facility departments in hospitals and clinics. Our team has over 30 years of experience working with all types of modalities. Nationwide coverage is available for weekly, monthly or complete annual service contracts. We offer services for several categories, including biomedical, rental equipment, imaging, mobile imaging, installation, deinstallation, ultrasound probes, endoscopes, sterilizers, clinics, laboratory and facilities.
Q: How does GME stand out in the medical equipment field?
A: As a healthcare technology management company, GME is not only a pioneer in service, but also in technology, that is driven by implanting artificial intelligence and machine learning in hospitals. We want to bring back customer service and quality, while advancing hospitals in technology.
Q: Do you have any specific goals that you want GME to achieve in the near future?
A: GME aims to be in 600 hospitals in 5 years after partnering with Medzon. We are not only expanding in the United States, but overseas as well, into the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
