GE Medical Systems announced last week that it has completed its acquisition of OneSource Services. OneSource, founded in 1997, provides clinical services to healthcare facilities’ in-house, multivendor, and OEM service organizations, and has particular expertise in laser equipment.

OneSource operations will align with GE Clinical Services, a GE subsidiary headquartered in Brentwood, TN. GE Clinical Services provides comprehensive biomedical service to healthcare providers throughout the U.S.

GEMS also announced a new Internet-based program, Direct Services, to support hospital equipment maintenance and repair. Direct Services offers healthcare providers and third-party providers a Web-based venue to search for and purchase GE and non-GE parts, tubes, and probes online; view service documentation; and access training information.

Other features will be introduced later this year. Customers can view a demonstration of the program at www.mydirectservices.com/ds. The Web site was created for healthcare providers that directly maintain biomedical and imaging equipment.
