Accruent has enhanced two of its core health care asset management products, Connectiv and Accruent Data Insights. These enhancements add additional tools to Accruent’s healthcare platform to help organizations manage the complete asset lifecycle, from pre-assessment and acquisition to support and final disposition. Accruent software helps hospitals manage purchasing decisions, optimize asset maintenance and service contracts, improve support services and reduce the total cost of ownership of medical equipment.
According to KaufmanHall’s July 2020 report entitled “The Effect of COVID-19 on Hospital Financial Health,” the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced average U.S. hospital operating margins from 1.7% to -3% during Q2 2020, a number that would have been much worse without federal government financial assistance. In addition, 76% of hospitals indicated that they lack the resources for effective financial planning and analysis. Now more than ever, health care organizations must find new ways to increase operational efficiency, reduce capital spend on equipment and cut operational costs while improving service quality.
Accruent Data Insights is a web application that provides hospital executives information to assist them in making equipment planning, purchasing, maintenance and labor decisions for their biomedical equipment. Based on the documented ownership experiences of U.S. hospitals, Accruent Data Insights aggregates millions of data points and delivers valuable metrics in easy to consume visualizations to guide asset decisions.
Connectiv is Accruent’s Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) designed exclusively for the health care industry. Connectiv helps health care organizations consolidate facilities management (HFM), technology and device management (HTM), and information technology (IT) into a single user experience. Built on the ServiceNow platform, Connectiv supports health care organizations in their quest to transform the patient experience, gain real-time visibility into asset performance, optimize work productivity and ensure compliance with changing policies, laws and regulations.
