Attainia Announces New Partnership With Accruent
Attainia, the market leader in cloud-based software for medical equipment (FF&E) planning, routine annual capital replacement, tracking and analytics, today announced the launch of a new partnership with Accruent, the leading provider of healthcare technology (HTM) and facilities management (HFM) solutions that optimize asset and maintenance management.
To manage — and reduce — total cost of capital equipment assets, healthcare systems and hospitals must have access to critical data that informs and guides purchasing decisions. The partnership will help healthcare delivery organizations manage their full equipment asset lifecycles and facilitate incremental cost reductions, allowing for improved quality of patient care. Only by consolidating and analyzing data system-wide, and enforcing standardization practices, can healthcare providers negotiate the most favorable purchasing terms and drive out costs from new construction, renovation and routine capital replacement projects. The Attainia / Accruent partnership will support cross-access to tools which are developed specifically to enhance existing processes and to identify all cost-savings opportunities available.
Using the combination of Attainia and Accruent software tools provide critical capabilities and benefits for healthcare organizations, including:
- The industry’s only integrated furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) product supplier catalog that drives organizational standards with more than 3,200 suppliers that feature more than 63,000 products.
- An online collaboration environment for equipment planning using workflows to ensure that processes are efficient and accurate, which can dramatically reduce the number of change orders.
- Visibility into all planned capital equipment for new construction, renovation, expansion and annual replacement requests that maximize the ability to negotiate volume discounts with suppliers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs).
“The Accruent and Attainia partnership will dramatically impact the way our healthcare clients and future prospects manage their capital equipment,” said DJ Chhabra, Attainia CEO and chairman of the board. “Each company has a leading market position with healthcare planning solutions, and the synergy of our products will allow us to provide integrated data insights and an improved client experience in the planning and management of capital equipment. I’m very excited about how this partnership will enhance both organizations’ solutions and deliver improved outcomes for our healthcare clients.”
Currently, Accruent serves more than 55 percent of U.S. hospitals, providing capital planning, healthcare technology management, and facilities management software and services. Attainia provides capital equipment planning and replacement software and analytics to more than 1,000 hospitals.
“A comprehensive capital lifecycle management program can save millions of dollars for a healthcare organization,” noted Al Gresch, Accruent vice president of healthcare customer success, who helped build such systems for three different organizations. “To build such a system requires significant expertise, time, and resources. With this partnership, most of the heavy lifting is done for you and it makes that model achievable for any organization.”
