FLEXIBLE FINANCE MODELS - FOR HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY

CHG-MERIDIAN provides flexible financing, effective support, and technology lifecycle management that adds measurable value.

CHG-MERIDIAN provides the flexible financing of medical equipment, working with our customers we can find a transparent, customised billing model to suit their needs. Take advantage of one of our operating lease, finance lease, sale & leaseback, deferred payment or pay per use solutions.

We also help you to bring investment volumes into line with commercial targets (ROI, budget, TCO) and financial reporting requirements (US GAAP, IFRS).

To find the most efficient and profitable solution for your company, we always start with your needs.

Our approach to flexible finance across the markets will typically be based on one of the following solutions:

OPERATING LEASE

An operating lease is one of the most common types of agreements our customers take advantage of. An operating lease allows for the use of an asset but the lease term is short compared to the useful life of the asset. As a result, we take a residual value on the asset meaning the sum of the rentals will be typically less than the original capital cost.

FINANCE LEASE

A finance lease is another common lease agreement our customers can utilise. A finance lease is typically a full pay out agreement, this means that the sum of the rentals includes the full capital cost of the equipment, plus the interest accrued. In this sense a finance lease works in very much the same way as a loan i.e. you will normally fully pay out the cost of the equipment during the lease period.

SALE AND LEASEBACK

Raise capital budget and unlock the value of existing equipment. This model allows you to sell your existing assets that you own and lease it back in either an operating or finance format.

PAY PER USE/SCAN

Under this model, the overall cost of procuring and using the medical equipment is broken down by individual case of treatment by dividing the rental by the pre-determined minimum number of uses.

DEFERRED PAYMENTS

Acquire your equipment today and defer payments to the following financial year. The perfect solution for those customers who require an urgent supply of equipment but don’t have the necessary capital for the current financial year.

A SECURE & ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY END TO THE HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY EQUIPMENT LIFECYCLE

If the product lifecycle of your healthcare technology ends, we offer you the choice of returning, upgrading, or continuing to use it. CHG-MERIDIAN and our trusted partners ensure correct de-installation and complete removal.

Alongside creating additional value from your end of life assets, our main concern is protection of our customers data. Equipment that cannot be remarketed is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way, according to WEEE standards.
