Hospitals Save Money Buying Recycled Computer Parts
With a ballooning number of baby boomers hitting their golden years, requiring surgery, physical therapy and life-saving efforts and, the addition of the “me” generation (post baby boomers who spend more on healthcare than their parents did), it is no wonder that the medical care industry is one of the largest consumers of computers and computer parts. Hospitals and medical offices around the world now use the computer for every of aspect of their business. Whether it’s accounting and administration, complex laparoscopic surgeries, diagnosis of disease or networking among medical professionals sharing unique health conditions in their research studies, computer technology is the essential tool today’s medical professionals admit they could not be without. It is virtually impossible for humans to simultaneously track every movement of patients’ internal organs, but computers do it with ease.
As healthcare cuts sweep the nation and the burgeoning demand for healthcare increases, hospitals are encouraged to be more savvy with their technology maintenance and spending. Purchasing recycled equipment and parts, where possible, has literally saved them millions of dollars.
Code Micro has been and, continues to be, a significant supplier for these often difficult-to-find parts to the healthcare sector. A great example of a hospital saving money buying recycled computer parts is Loma Linda Hospital in southern California. Loma Linda is among the many customers that reap the benefits of buying recycled computer parts. And a great example of computer parts organization like Loma Linda Hospital save big money on are genuine EMC Symmetrix replacement parts. Not only are they saving money and consequently saving their patients money, they are contributing to the “green” cause which, in its self, is nothing to sneeze about!
My neighbor has a parcel of land next to my home with nothing but dirt and rocks on it, and yet, he goes to huge lengths to protect his pile of dirt. Chain link fences and “No Trespassing Signs” would suggest he has something intensely important to protect. Perhaps there is an entrance to a secret underworld that only he knows of. He marches off the perimeter of his property daily just to ensure a rabbit, coyote or, Heaven forbid, a human walking a dog has not breached his formidable security. I wonder if he’s this careful with his home computer security. Does he have a triple password, a thumb scanner, or perhaps even more importantly, a back-up power supply?
Do you have a back-up power supply? A battery backup to your redundant power supply? Perhaps you do, but it is time to check the condition of your battery modules in your UPS (an example of new replacement battery modules is the APC Symmetra SYBT3 battery module)? If you lose power, you lose access, business is down and you could even lose important files. My neighbor is a little OCD about his pile of dirt but protecting your business computer systems is essential. If you don’t have a back-up power supply, or need assistance with replacement old battery modules on your APC Symmetra SYBT3, don’t despair. Code Micro’s got them for you. New and refurbished – best prices, best service, nicest people. Unlike my neighbor, Code Micro wants you to come see them. Visit http://www.codemicro.com for all your computer and peripheral needs.
Did you know that, in general, the original owner of a laptop only keeps it for three years before it’s disposed of?! A cell phone is kept for even less time, on average 2 years before it’s tossed. Tragically, 85% of all e-waste does not get recycled, amounting to more than 3 million tons in the US alone. And it is not only cell phones and laptops, but even the large servers and networking equipment which are routinely thrown out. Such a waste! Imagine, when you’re looking at larger items like APC Power Modules or Nortel Passport Power Supplies. The toll on our landfills, not to speak of our wallets, is staggering. We have decided to do something about that.
Re-using and recycling IT hardware is not only good for the planet, it saves you on average 70% over the cost of replacing with new!
