Behavioral health organizations are tasked with managing numerous types of assets, from medical equipment and furniture to supplies. Their facilities require an effective asset management strategy that can help them keep track of their resources, optimize utilization, and minimize the costs associated with asset procurement and maintenance.
A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) can be instrumental in helping behavioral health organizations do even more than streamline assets. Additional capabilities key to your industry include:
1. Facilities Inspections – scheduled, documenting performance and follow-up
2. Responsiveness – timely maintenance of living environments that face frequent turnover may impact costs and patient outcomes
3. Consumable Inventory – increases buying power and productivity when there are multiple geographically-dispersed properties to support
CMMS software helps facility managers to oversee the entire process of tracking and managing assets by providing comprehensive visibility of work being performed on every asset, no matter which property. It offers insights into current service levels, predicted future needs, life expectancy, condition assessments, and other metrics that help facilities make better decisions about their asset investments.
With a CMMS, behavioral health organizations can easily track assets from purchase to disposal, optimizing their budget. The system offers comprehensive reports that help facility managers identify asset trends, analyze usage patterns, and detect any potential inefficiencies or risks. Assignable Assets can be used to track who has the unit and when it is due to be returned. This can all lead to smarter maintenance planning and more cost-effective operations for the organization. A robust CMMS solution will not only streamline internal operations but provide a comprehensive solution that integrates with 3rd parties resulting in a simple way to place parts and services orders with vendors when needed.
In addition, a CMMS helps streamline asset management by embedding checklists in preventive maintenance tasks as they are automatically scheduled based on the condition of the item or its estimated lifespan. By scheduling these tasks automatically on a recurring basis, facilities can reduce downtime due to unexpected malfunctions and keep their operations running smoothly. The end result is a productive workflow for staff and a positive experience for patients.
By implementing a CMMS into their operations, behavioral health organizations can enhance their image and increase efficiency while reducing costs associated with asset procurement and maintenance. By utilizing the data-driven insights and automated processes that CMMS offers, behavioral health organizations can save time and resources managing their assets while also reducing downtime and improving equipment reliability. Organizations are able to create a more effective asset management strategy and maximize the value of their investments in equipment and supplies while improving the care and experience of patients.
Learn More About CMMS in Healthcare Facilities
With CMMS software, healthcare facility managers have access to detailed records about their assets and can easily track which inspections have been completed, what preventive maintenance has been performed, where parts were last used, or when warranties expire.
Maintaining medical facilities is a vital part of providing quality care. Medical facility equipment must be kept in top condition to ensure the best possible health outcomes for patients.
For Senior Care Facility Managers, the main goal is to provide a care environment for their residents in a safe, properly functioning facility.
