Advances in the applications, technologies and methodologies of radiation oncology continue to evolve, making it imperative that radiation oncology professionals remain current in the state-of-the-art techniques and technologies.

With this top of mind, experts in the field of radiation oncology will convene this week to learn about the latest in cancer treatment during the 2019 ASTRO Annual Meeting in Chicago.

Key Equipment Finance will be in attendance at ASTRO to share its expertise in financing solutions for radiation oncology equipment.

Radiation equipment was one of the three fastest-growing categories of medical equipment, according to the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation's most recent Vertical Market Outlook Series.

Radiation oncology equipment vendors can use financing to close more sales faster, provide flexible payment options, and help healthcare providers get the equipment they need to provide better patient care while staying within budget.

Meeting customer needs

When it comes to support for radiation oncology equipment sales, what makes for the right kind of financing partner? It should be a partner that can deliver a complete, immediate solution to a wide variety of healthcare customers, including:

  • The federal government
  • State and local municipalities
  • Not-for-profit organizations
  • Large and small hospitals
  • Radiation therapy centers

Industry and in-house knowledge

From equipment assets to legislative policies, a good financing partner will know healthcare, but also specialize in the oncology market.

The right financing partner should also offer a wide range of services, such as on-site training to online support, to allow radiation oncology equipment vendors to focus on their sales.

Delivering prompt, complete asset financing with a personal touch should be the cornerstone of an effective equipment financing partnership. Most importantly, as a trusted advisor, the financing partner should provide access to strong capital and a steadfast commitment to excellence.
