EQ2, a provider of CMMS solutions for healthcare, and Fluke Biomedical announced their latest integration to optimize access to medical device test data by HTM professionals performing their daily duties. The integration is part of a long-standing relationship between the two companies

The integration will be on display through demonstrations at the EQ2 booth #737 during the 2024 AAMI Exchange event in Phoenix, Ariz, June 14-16.

HEMS Integration with OneQA

Fluke Biomedical’s Ansur and medTester have integrated with EQ2’s HEMS for years. The addition of OneQA, a biomedical equipment quality assurance platform, brings these new benefits through workflow automation:

  • Streamlined Workflow: Integration automates the flow of information between the CMMS and OneQA, reducing manual data entry and increasing operational efficiency.
  • Standardized Test Procedures: Using OneQA, test procedures can be standardized, allowing for supporting documentation (pictures, notes, tips, tricks) to be embedded into procedures, standardizing work performed and knowledge. Administrator changes are automatically sent out to the entire team, ensuring all HTM members are following the correct workflow.
  • Enhanced Accuracy: Eliminates human error from manual entry of test values from biomedical testing instruments, ensuring data across systems is consistent and reliable.
  • Time Savings: Manual test documentation is eliminated from relying on tactics like Word, PDF, a written notebook, etc.), saving precious time.
  • Real-Time Data Access: With immediate access to the latest data, it allows for quicker decision-making and improved workflow times.
  • Increased Productivity: Automates routine tasks providing staff more time in their day to focus on more critical aspects of their job. 
  • Enhanced Compliance:  Provides a consolidated platform for managing all compliance-related activities, including test equipment calibration dates and electrical safety standards.
  • Cost Savings: By automating workflows and eliminating manual data entry, labor costs and the potential for expensive errors or redundant work are reduced.Customizable Reports: Advanced reporting capabilities can be customized to meet the specific needs of each individual healthcare facility.
  • Enhanced Security: Provides data security measures to protect sensitive healthcare information using AWS on the OneQA side and Microsoft Azure on the EQ2 HEMS side.
