The healthcare industry is quickly becoming a dominant sector of the American economy – recession proof, some say – so it is easy to understand that each physical
healthcare facility of any type is a significant strategic asset that requires rigorous upkeep by in-
house staff and third-party vendors.
A recent study by U.S. News and World Report showed that the healthcare industry employs one
out of eight American workers. The industry is responsible for over 16 million jobs and generates
approximately $2.7 trillion USD each year. As the healthcare industry grows at what experts
consider an alarming rate, the need for improved healthcare facilities management has never
In the healthcare industry, facilities management often concerns the supervision of numerous
physical healthcare buildings or facility locations in a diversity of traditional and non-hospital
environments (nursing homes, surgical and outpatient centers, and emergency care clinics).
To stay abreast of the growing demand for quality healthcare facilities that support a number
of different patient types, all aspects of healthcare facilities management must be aligned with
healthcare and medical clinic business goals. These goals are rooted in providing competent care
for patients and avoiding wasteful labor and spending. To support this effort, healthcare facilities
managers must leverage emerging technologies that allow them to streamline processes and
enhance operating efficiency. The forward-thinking facilities manager therefore looks to better
manage their healthcare facilities for improved patient care and reduce long-term operational
costs at the same time.
Technology, as with leading-edge facilities management software, is allowing healthcare facilities
management to leverage improved systems that support these goals and minimize operational
concerns. Clinics and other healthcare facilities can now utilize software to manage their
facilities, optimize energy usage, maintain standards of safety, and control overhead costs.
PropertyTRAK allows healthcare facilities management to better manage a core in-house facilities
management team, as well as outsource a number of services without sacrificing any aspect
of vendor or staff communications, work order tracking, and reporting. At the same time, these
software tools allow facilities managers to capture and control the flow of data
coming from in-house staffers as well as third-party contractors. Each planned maintenance
or work order – even when outsourced – generates job detail data and reporting, allowing the
generation of undiminished work and maintenance reports and a full asset history for each piece
of premise equipment.
PropertyTRAK also captures key product information pertaining to each piece of on-site
equipment, including equipment serial numbers, manufacturer names, model numbers, asset
value, and warranty expiration dates.
PropertyTRAK delivers a comprehensive set of tools for facilities managers overseeing medical
clinics, healthcare facilities, and residential care facilities. In healthcare systems that involve a
number of separate locations or facilities, PropertyTRAK allows facilities managers to schedule,
track, and manage maintenance for each individual location.
The top benefits of the PropertyTRAK facilities management software for medical clinics and
healthcare facilities are as follows:
- Full-featured Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)
