ISO9001:2015 Certified Quality Management System
The provision of lifecycle management biomedical devices, assistive technology equipment, ICT equipment, and provision of healthcare infrastructure consulting services.
To ensure that we continually satisfy our customers through providing excellent services, we take a process driven approach to all our business operations through applying the Cabrini Technology Group Quality Management System.
Cabrini Technology Group's approach to Quality is much more than having ISO 9001 Certification purely for the sake of holding a Certificate. The Cabrini Technology Group Quality Policy is a key component of the company strategy and we review it regularly to check that it is appropriate for current market conditions, aligned with the Cabrini Technology Vision, Mission and Values and most importantly, to ensure that we are satisfying our customers.
Quality is a part of our culture and forms a significant part of the overall governance of the organisation. Our people are crucial to achieving our Quality objectives. They actively contribute to ensure that we provide quality services that, at a minimum, conform to all relevant Australian Standards and to the ongoing process of improvement initiatives.
Cabrini Technology Group is committed to not only complying with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard but most importantly to continually improving our processes and the effectiveness of our quality management system so that we can provide the best of service to our highly valued customers and service partners.
ISO55001:2014 Certified Asset Management System
The asset management system in relation to governance of the provision of life cycle management of biomedical devices, assistive technology equipment and the provision of specialised consulting services to health facilities and infrastructure to augment the delivery of health care services.
The Cabrini Technology Group strategic asset management plan is designed to support our client-service led strategy and realises the opportunities embodied in our ISO 55001 certification.
The effective management of physical assets is complex and medical equipment, a specialised kind of asset, presents some further unique challenges beyond that of typical civil assets. Many items of medical equipment are technically complex, requiring specialist expertise to use, manage, assess and repair.
They tend to have shorter lives than more traditional assets such as buildings and infrastructure, and hence require more focused and frequent attention. In a typical health service, medical technology assets represent a considerable investment and operating cost, with potentially severe consequences following inadequate performance or failure.
The Cabrini Technology Group Strategic Asset Management Framework is designed to recognise these characteristics and provides principles, practices and techniques designed to assist our clients and staff in managing medical equipment assets.
It aims to ensure equipment meets clinical requirements, is effectively maintained, is replaced when and only when it needs to be, and that additional equipment is acquired when needed. All this has to be accomplished in a constrained environment for both capital and operating costs.
