Hospitals, Rehab Centers
Healthcare organizations are under increasing pressure to manage a sophisticated mix of computerized devices, tools and equipment, systems and technologies. At the same time, healthcare administrators are looking to maximize service delivery while reducing costs of managing these increasingly complex types of assets. Some of these areas include:
- Maximize quality of hospital equipment and service delivered to patients.
- Improve asset availability.
- Reduce asset investment, manage costs, and improve operational efficiencies.
- Minimize legal and regulatory exposure.
Projetech’s Maximo as a Service provides significant financial benefits for healthcare providers:
- ROA (Return on Assets) is increased because expensive, complex machinery receives preventive and proactive maintenance.
- Cost of risk (such as downtime) is reduced because of the higher availability of critical equipment.
- Costs of compliance efforts are reduced, because Maximo uniquely addresses JCAHO, HIPAA, and FDA regulations.
Projetech’s Maximo as a Service addresses healthcare asset management regulations:
- JCAHO (The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations): JCAHO requires reporting compliance for Medical Equipment Inventory as well as Medical Equipment Maintenance Plan standards.
- HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act): HIPAA requires that asset management comply with HIPAA Subpart C, section 164.308 and 164.310, which deal with IT asset management.
- FDA (Food and Drug Administration): FDA SMG (Staff Manual Guides) require that IT asset management comply with SMG 3210.4.
