It’s the perpetual conundrum. Save money? Or spend more and get more reliable radiography equipment? Choosing between budget and peace of mind is never an easy decision, and there’s not always a clear solution. However, this time of year your practice can actually pull off both! Before the new year begins, dedicate yourself to serving your patients and protecting your bottom line. (Yes, you can do it without skimping on diagnosis and treatment!)
Start the New Year on a Healthy Foot
Every clinic, hospital or private practice should set its New Year’s resolution to revolve around offering the best possible radiography equipment for its patients. Make upgrades or replacements before January to start the year off with the sure and steady footing of state-of-the-art medical equipment. This is actually the most fiscally prudent investment you can make.
Purchasing high-end x-ray machines and other radiography resources ensures that you won’t need to constantly seek out upgrades or replace parts when things aren’t running perfectly. It may cost more on the front end, but this strategy ultimately saves you money in the long term. And if your business has been blessed with an end-of-year surplus – wouldn’t it be best to put the extra cash toward something that will generate more savings for next year?
The best equipment makes it far easier to diagnose – and subsequently treat – patients. Unreliable imaging can cause some serious problems in the treatment process. Fortunately, now’s the ideal time of year to start reconfiguring your radiography setup.
As a bonus, if you purchase x-rays for your practice before the end of the year, you will be able to write it off on your next tax form. Section 179 allows you “to deduct … the full purchase price of financed or leased equipment and off-the-shelf software that qualifies for the deduction.” The official site for Section 179 has more detailed instructions about how much of the equipment you will be able to include once you go to file taxes. No matter what, just make sure you complete your purchase prior to New Year’s so that you qualify.
