    When new equipment is needed for a medical office, you must decide whether to lease or purchase the item. Leasing refers to the process of renting the equipment for a specific period of time, usually with regular payments, while purchasing involves buying the equipment outright. Leasing can be a more cost-effective option, especially for expensive medical equipment, as it allows the office to access the necessary equipment without a large upfront investment. It also provides the flexibility to upgrade or replace equipment as needed. On the other hand, purchasing may be preferred if the equipment is expected to be used for a long time or if there are specific customization requirements.
