THE BOTTOM LINE

   •    According to our PricePaid database, discounts for similar equipment configurations range
        between 9.5% and 25.4%, and your facility’s discount falls within this range.

   •    Negotiating for the highest discount of 25.4% (see record #151179) would save your
        facility $10,789.89. Keep in mind, this is not a direct comparison between equipment
        configurations.

   •    In order to reach the most cost-effective agreement, we recommend negotiating shipping and
        handling for FOB destination, prepaid, and absorbed.

PRICE ANALYSIS FOR: Plymouth Health System

Quoted Price:        $42,479.90          Reason: Multi-unit
List Price:          $52,370             Units: 2
Quoted Discount:     18.9%


CONMED Corp has offered your facility two CONMED System 7550 electrosurgical systems for
$42,479.90, an 18.9% discount off of the list price. According to our PricePaid database, discounts
for similar equipment configurations range between 9.5% and 25.4%, and your facility’s discount
falls within this range. However, if your facility is able to negotiate for the highest discount of 25.4%
(see record #151179), you will have the potential to save $10,789.89. Keep in mind, this is not a
direct comparison between equipment configurations, and therefore, your facility’s cost savings may
not be as high.
In order to reach the most cost-effective agreement, we recommend negotiating shipping and
handling for FOB destination, prepaid, and absorbed.

THE COMPETITIVE EDGE

Creating competition is a way to increase your negotiating leverage. Therefore, we recommend that
you emphasize to CONMED Corp that other vendors are being considered. The most equivalent
alternative is the Valleylab Force Argon II. This model’s specifications are similar to the CONMED
system. If this vendor offers your facility a better discount and/or lower price, CONMED Corp will
more than likely be compelled to match it. We have provided the specifications for this additional
alternative below. If you haven’t done so already, we strongly recommend that you request
proposals from each of these vendors in order to create a competitive situation, which will ultimately
increase your bargaining power.

SERVICE CONTRACT

A service contract for this type of equipment is typically 5% to 10% of the equipment’s list price.
We recommend that your facility negotiate the terms of a service contract before purchasing the
equipment, because your negotiating leverage is highest at this point. You may be able to negotiate
for a discounted price if you purchase a multi-year contract.

Before accepting any service agreement you should verify the hours of service and the days of
service. We recommend that you negotiate for hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through
Friday. You should negotiate for at least two preventative maintenance visits annually. We also
recommend that you negotiate to have all preventative maintenance performed whenever is most
convenient for the hospital. Verify whether you have unlimited emergency service calls. We
recommend that you negotiate for a guaranteed response time of 4 hours for phone calls and 48
hours for on-site assistance, plus an uptime guarantee of greater than 98%, with financial penalties
(such as extension of contract) for noncompliance. Availability of replacement parts should also be
specified.

Note that many service contracts leave the decision of fault to the manufacturer when equipment
malfunctions. If this is the situation, the manufacturer may claim that damaged equipment was
caused by user error, in which case the hospital pays for repairs as well as shipping costs. You may
wish to clarify that your contract provides for an objective party to make determinations concerning
fault. We also recommend that your facility negotiate for a cancellation clause which enables you to
terminate the contract at any time, without penalties, should you decide to do so.

CONMED/Valleylab—Electrosurgical Unit Footswitches: Using Incorrect Footswitch May Reverse Waveforms [U.K.
Recall]
Priority : High Priority

In This Issue: CONMED/Valleylab ESU Footswitches [U.K.]

Electrodes, Electrosurgical, Active, Foot-Controlled [16-206]

Device: Electrosurgical Unit Footswitches
Manufacturer: CONMED Corp [101345], 14603 E Freemont Ave, Centennial CO 80112; Valleylab Div Tyco Healthcare
Group LP [101829], 5920 Longbow Dr, Boulder CO 80301-3299

Problem: The U.K. Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a Medical Device Alert
warning healthcare workers that although electrosurgical units (ESUs) manufactured by CONMED and Valleylab have the
same type of footswitch connector, they are wired differently; therefore, if a footswitch intended for 1 type of ESU is used
with the other type of ESU, the unit will deliver “cut” waveforms when the “coagulate” footswitch is depressed and vice
versa.

Action Needed: MHRA recommends the following:

(1) Before use, staff should ensure that footswitches operate “cut” and “coagulate” outputs correctly, as advised in the
manufacturer’s instructions for use.

(2) Maintenance staff should ensure that all footswitches are labeled for use with the appropriate ESU.

(3) Facilities should contact MHRA and the manufacturer if they encounter any instance in which the labeling is
insufficient.

Comment: This incident report is based on information supplied to MHRA that may not be independently verified as to its
accuracy, completeness, or causal relationship to the product or its supplier. Although specific products are identified in
this report, ECRI believes that this problem and/or these results may occur with similar products of other manufacturers

We used a useful life expectancy of seven years for the CONMED System 7550.
Please note that this depreciation chart does not account for any clinical value that
this equipment may hold, but rather is able to assist in the value estimation of this
equipment within the used medical equipment marketplace. In order to most
accurately determine the fair market value of this equipment, your facility should:

   1.   Consider the availability of new technology.
   2.   Establish a maximum maintenance expenditure limit.
   3.   Ensure the availability of repair parts.
   4.   Define the reliability of the equipment.

Some factors that may detract from the value of this equipment are: age (if more
than five years old), model obsolescence, poor performance history, poor
maintenance or service records. However, factors that may enhance the value of
this equipment are good market share and a well-known manufacturer.
