Attainia Launches Next Generation Medical Equipment Planning Platform
New PROJECT software offers advanced speed and performance; introduces enhanced analytics
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ.: Attainia, the market leader in cloud-based software for medical equipment planning for new construction, expansion and renovation projects, announced the launch of PROJECT, the next generation of its flagship equipment planning platform. The new platform offers exceptionally fast processing; a modern, intuitive interface; and enhanced analytics capabilities.
“We are extremely proud of the new platform and the many innovations we’re introducing,” said DJ Chhabra, CEO and chairman of the board. “We are taking advantage of cutting edge technology to make our application work faster, smarter, and better for our clients than ever before.”
Major features of the new PROJECT platform include:
- Dramatic increase in speed, with an average page load time that is 80% faster than the legacy Attainia platform
- An enhanced analytics feature that allows planners to visualize and use their data in a variety of new ways, including PDF reports, graphs, and data exports
- A more user-friendly and intuitive design
The new platform also continues to support equipment planners with key time-saving and risk-mitigating features, including more than 1,400 pre-built department and room templates, and an industry-leading integrated supplier catalog of more than 66,000 products.
“The new platform was designed and built based on years of feedback from our clients,” Chhabra said. “We continue to solicit feedback, and are constantly using that input to inform development decisions. The user experience has also been at the heart of every decision we have made for this software, and we continue to consider how work through our applications can be done differently to drive efficiencies and effectiveness.”
After a beta period in summer 2019 with select clients, the platform was released as general availability in October of 2019, and introduced more broadly to the client base at the Attainia Community Summit in February 2020.
Attainia continues to follow an iterative approach to developing the new platform. The team releases new features, functionality and enhancements to the platform on an ongoing basis, while also continuing to migrate and support clients in the new application. This approach allows the development team to continuously solicit feedback from clients — and pivot as needed — to ensure the most positive and productive user experience possible.
“The first thing any equipment planner will notice is about the new software — the speed! It’s incredible,” said Steven Isakson, equipment planner for Intermountain Healthcare, who is using the new PROJECT platform to create an equipment list for a new children’s hospital. “We are also excited about the analytics. The new analytics capabilities will give our sourcing managers the tools they need to negotiate pricing and develop strategic relationships with our suppliers.”
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. By integrating data from medical device suppliers and GPOs, Attainia helps healthcare organizations manage equipment costs and optimize for continuity and excellence in patient care.
