HealthCare Appraisers’ latest addition to its Automated FMV Solutions™ suite is the Capital Equipment Calculator™. The Capital Equipment Calculator™ fuses the knowledge of the nation’s leading FMV experts with innovative technology to allow hospitals and health systems to economically obtain independent third-party FMV ranges on Capital Equipment purchase transactions within minutes.
In addition to traditional tangible capital equipments such as medical equipment, the Capital Equipment Calculator™ can be customized to calculate ranges for other components commonly associated with purchase transactions including Supplies, Medical Records, and alternative lease payment rates.
The Capital Equipment Calculator™ is a fully interactive, web-based application tool that is based on the methodologies that HealthCare Appraisers utilizes in its traditional FMV reports. Using an intelligent data-gathering web-based interface and drop down menus, the calculator captures relevant information related to the subject of Fixed Assets, Supplies, and Medical Records.
The Capital Equipment Calculator™ establishes FMV ranges based on the unique attributes of each transaction or arrangement, considering:
- Various asset categories including medical equipment, furniture and fixtures, office equipment, and computer equipment;
- Potential lease options for the capital equipments;
- Level of various Supplies on hand (office, medical, and drugs); and
- Types of active Medical Records (physical and/or electronic).
The Capital Equipment Calculator™ is reviewed/updated quarterly to adjust to changes in the industry and market factors pertinent to capital equipment.
