Mediquip Home Care is expanding the benefits of being a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) supplier by offering Specialist Certification and Marketing services.
Mediquip’s Home Care owner, Sonia Carrero, offers patients and their families a wide array of premium medical products and equipment to alleviate the care giving process. Although she offers direct sales through her company, she has also given other industry professionals the opportunity to sell her products and equipment as independent suppliers. Recognizing that distributors should be better equipped to assist patients and their families, she decided to offer them a DME Specialist Certification (CDME).
The CDME will allow the distributor to make basic repairs on the equipment, troubleshoot any malfunctions and conduct home inspections for DME products like oxygen, transfer systems, internal supplies and wound care. Trained and certified DME specialists will reaffirm their value by guaranteeing patients that they will be receiving the highest quality of care. A DME certification translates to the patients and their families that the DME supplier is an exemplary referral source of professionalism and expertise at handling all of the products and equipment that they are selling.
The advantages that a DME supplier acquires by becoming a CDME covers a broad scope of benefits. A DME supplier can expect to stand out in the market, become a low risk, set the standard for evaluating potential employees, maximize customer satisfaction and never exhibit fraud, waste or abuse.
By becoming a CDME, a DME supplier will possess the required technical abilities, knowledge, competency and training to deliver products. In addition, this certification assures patients and their families that they are compliant with policies and procedures.
To become a CDME, you’ll need to meet eligibility prerequisites, successfully complete the DME specialist candidate exam and promise to uphold ethical standards according to the code of ethics honored by all certified specialists.
Once you receive your certification, you will be required to acquire continuing education credits and stay current with the latest technology and process improvements.
To increase your clientele after you receive DME certification, Sonia Carrero has teamed up with Idalis Bailey of RITMAC, a marketing agency for the health care industry. Ms. Bailey is an accredited marketing professional in the health and wellness field. With strategic planning she will help you grow your distribution list and find better ways to improve your selling approach.
