CMMS Software for Healthcare and Medical Facilities
Even optimized healthcare and medical facilities will experience a certain level of chaos. Last-minute cancellations, emergencies, unplanned absences, and limited specialized equipment can create operational challenges for facilities. Gathering real-time data to make quick and effective decisions that mitigate disruptions due to faulty equipment or building systems is critical. Computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software can help.
CMMS software can aid significantly in gathering data and automating facility decisions. CMMS software also automates supplier or contractor requirements, equipment, and labor scheduling decisions based on need. As a result, CMMS software for healthcare can help increase efficiency in the fast-paced environments of medical facilities.
Why Use CMMS Software for Healthcare and Medical Facilities?
CMMS software lets you quickly gather and compile knowledge to provide asset and facility managers with the most up-to-date information on the state and condition of their infrastructure. Further, when appropriate, you can automate notifications and suggested actions to assist maintenance and engineering managers in their many duties.
The benefits of CMMS software in healthcare and medical facilities include:
- Personnel scheduling
- Specialized equipment usage, status, and location tracking
- Timely replacement and repair of medical equipment
- Regulatory checks and inspections
Maintenance and Facilities Personnel Scheduling
Unlike other fields, healthcare does not follow a strict weekly employee schedule. An influx of patients can shift workloads and create associated scheduling challenges for facilities. With CMMS software, facilities can seamlessly adapt to changing infrastructure, equipment, and supply needs and suggest personnel scheduling that provides the best coverage.
Specialized Equipment Usage and Location Tracking
As medical equipment moves throughout facilities according to ever-changing patient and healthcare service demands, you must schedule the most patients for the limited available time slots. To do so, associated facilities and equipment infrastructure must also support patient care demands. CMMS software allows you to track and locate equipment quickly. With it, you can schedule the maximum equipment usage while optimizing performance and maintenance.
Medical Equipment Replacement and Repair
Considering the effort today’s healthcare facilities expend to maintain cost-effective and competitive healthcare, efficiently replacing or repairing malfunctioning machines is critical. CMMS software not only alerts operators and managers to equipment issues but can also automatically complete requisition orders for replacement equipment or parts. Further, you can leverage CMMS software to track these orders and schedule maintenance staff, limiting equipment downtime and improving patient care.
Regulatory Checks and Training
Medical and healthcare facilities are monitored continually for maintenance and safety issues, along with many other federal and healthcare regulations, including HIPPA law implementation. CMMS software can facilitate regulatory compliance while helping to maintain the right skill sets for overall labor and contractor schedule optimization.
