Options for ECMO Services & Programs
When it comes to providing ECMO services, hospitals have a few different options they can consider. Some may opt to assign an internal staff member as the ECMO coordinator on an as-needed basis, while others may outsource altogether. Another option is a hybrid of internal staff and outsourced services, bringing the best of both worlds together to support patient care. Each hospital is evaluating this decision based on their staff size, budget and resources available to training and certifications. For some hospitals, assigning an internal, part-time ECMO coordinator may save money, but may put a strain on that individual, which then impacts the OR team and the overall quality of the program. A total outsource of the program may be ideal but too costly for some hospitals. Each set of circumstances is unique, and that’s where we can be an invaluable resource.
