Healthcare Product Comparison System

New replatformed website raises bar for product comparisons

The Healthcare Product Comparison System (HPCS), an easily searchable online database, delivers comprehensive information and insights you need to understand and compare medical equipment. Whether you’re purchasing equipment now or planning for the future, HPCS gives you everything you need to set up the evaluation process.
  • Make informed purchasing decisions using comparison charts with our side-by-side recommended specifications to help you narrow the field quickly and easily. Plus, you can create customized RFPs, and we highlight the key specifications you should look at to make your decision.
  • Understand what’s on the market with our easy-to-read technology overviews. You get important insights you won’t get directly from the manufacturer to help make well-informed purchasing decisions.
  • NEW! Compare the models you want with custom comparison charts from the most comprehensive database of product specifications. You can now easily sort, navigate, filter, and customize views for more than 500 types of devices.

Search the online database by any term—device, manufacturer name, region marketed, price, and more. Constantly updated, HPCS delivers the most up-to-date information on medical equipment. Explore detailed product information and access product images, literature, and cut sheets.

The membership includes access to the HPCS hotline, so you can call or e-mail for report updates or clarifications.
