Accruent Enhances Connectiv Healthcare Technology Management Platform

According to a recent release, Accruent, provider of physical resource management solutions, has launched enhancements to its Connectiv healthcare technology management (HTM) platform. The recent enhancements to Connectiv reportedly include tools to improve the efficiency of integration with real-time location systems (RTLS) and IoT device security providers. These enhancements are designed to improve the safety and availability of devices, enhance tracking of equipment, and assist healthcare organizations in understanding device utilization and creating right-sized capital plans.

According to a recent report from global cybersecurity insurer Beazley2, 37 percent of ransomware attacks during 2018 were perpetrated against healthcare organizations and devices. Legacy and generic computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) struggle to keep pace with the complexity and the industry-specific regulations facing healthcare organizations, Accruent says. Because the Connectiv platform was designed from its inception for healthcare organizations, it reportedly can deliver device management functionality, configurable workflows, and security features that are optimized for the healthcare environment—both physical and regulatory.

“Because of the GE Healthcare Service Shop integration with Connectiv, we identify and purchase parts more quickly, easily, and accurately from within the work order,” said Robert Bundick, Director of Biomedical Engineering, ProHealth Care. “Our engineers can order parts sooner and spend more time focused on equipment maintenance."

Connectiv will continue to evolve based on the specific needs of healthcare organizations, Accruent said, and the company said it will deliver hospitals and clinics with the information they need to get maximum utility from their connected devices.

“Healthcare organizations must find ways to improve efficiency and performance with fewer resources,” said Al Gresch, VP, Healthcare Support and Customer Success, Accruent. “Leaders must be able to obtain meaningful, actionable data to optimize planning and improve operations. More informed capital planning and greater operational efficiency allow healthcare organizations to dedicate a greater share of resources to their primary mission—providing the best care possible.”
