What is

Tech Knowledge Associates?

  • Revolutionary Equipment Maintenance

    Tech Knowledge Associates, LLC (TKA) is revolutionizing the way hospitals maintain equipment. Created to centralize the clinical engineering functions and to consolidate cost centers at various hospitals, TKA has achieved a streamlined cost-saving, scalable system of equipment maintenance for many.

  • No Traditional Contracts

    Currently, hospitals carry a significant burden of maintaining equipment in an efficient way. Hospitals often rely upon traditional clinical engineering service contracts, which cost 8-10 times more than implementing an in-sourced, centralized group of factory-trained staff such as TKA. Hospitals are now realizing the vast potential savings created form taking this measure.

  • Minimizing Costs

    In addition to significantly minimizing cost, TKA reduces maintenance inconsistencies and brings greater efficiency and coordination to a hospital’s equipment and clinical engineering program.

Case Study: Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital

TKA’s in-sourced, centralized delivery model came to the rescue at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital in early 2014.

TKA’s in-sourced, centralized delivery model came to the rescue at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital in early 2014. When the Allura Xper FD10 Electro Physiology Lab at the Hospital experienced a malfunction, the in-house TKA technicians with access to the system were able to successfully view error logs and troubleshoot the issue. The technicians found that the chiller contained a small leak, which pulled air into the pump, causing it to lose prime. They determined this leak as the source of the error.

The technicians called the equipment manufacturer to obtain a quote for a new chiller. The replacement chiller was estimated to cost $32,111.51, plus shipping costs from Germany.
