The ability to gain insights into the life expectancy and total cost of ownership of equipment during the planning process allows healthcare organizations to be proactive -- which becomes paramount to improving patient satisfaction and protecting a hospital's revenue stream.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) July 20, 2020
Attainia, Inc., the market leader in cloud-based software for medical equipment planning, announced the integration of its flagship planning software with Accruent Data Insights, a powerful analytics solution that aggregates asset ownership data for thousands of equipment models. This new feature available now will allow healthcare organizations working in Attainia’s PLAN-IT suite of products to optimize their purchasing decisions and control capital asset costs by viewing reliability and total cost of ownership (TCO) data during the equipment planning process.
“The integration of Accruent’s Data Insights module into Attainia’s Plan-IT suite delivers powerful capabilities to reimagine how projects are planned and equipment is specified,” said DJ Chhabra, CEO and chairman of Attainia. “The ability to gain insights into the life expectancy and TCO of equipment during the planning process, and the ability to plan for a replacement well before it’s needed, allows healthcare organizations to be proactive -- which becomes paramount to improving patient satisfaction, protecting a hospital’s revenue stream and delivering overall efficiencies in the management of capital equipment.”
Most hospitals have a mandate to drive cost reduction, but the lack of actionable data and resource constraints makes this an extremely complex challenge. Comprehensively evaluating TCO requires an advanced analytical approach that integrates acquisition costs, maintenance information, useful life expectancy, depreciation, labor costs, reliability analytics and optimal replacement schedules.
The integration of Accruent Data Insights into the Attainia PLAN-IT suite available now delivers those analytics to healthcare organizations during the planning phase of equipment specification, when they are in the best position to make the choices that can reduce their overall operating costs and deliver measurable savings to the organization.
Capital asset teams working within the Attainia PLAN-IT suite will be able to leverage Data Insights to:
- Determine which equipment is the most reliable and has the lowest cost-of-operation when making purchasing decisions
- Simplify the complexities of analyzing many dimensions of TCO
- Plan future capital spend for equipment and materials
- Optimize clinical engineering headcount and resourcing based on predicted labor needs
- Determine the best time to replace biomedical devices
Accruent Data Insights is based on millions of data points reported from more than 55% of U.S. hospitals.
Used by more than 1,000 member hospitals, the Attainia PLAN-IT solution portfolio offers advanced, cloud-based solutions for medical equipment planning, routine replacement, and analytics. Attainia supports informed healthcare capital asset decisions by providing real-time insights and project management capabilities in a collaborative platform.
