Welcome to 24×7's Best Practices blog. This is Stephen Noonoo, 24×7’s associate editor and now (sometimes) blogger.
To get started, 24×7’s April 2009 article Linked In describes how the biomed department at Sonora Regional Medical Center of Adventist Health in Sonora, Calif, went completely paperless. Driving the ambitious green initiative was the department’s computerized maintenance management software (CMMS).
CMMS can provide untold benefits to hospitals, bringing computerized organization and efficiencies to the biomed department. In addition to helping schedule regular preventive maintenance, it can help with inventory control, and purchase order management. Some can even help with asset management.
How do you use CMMS? To go paperless? To keep track of preventative maintenance?
Are there any unique uses of the program you’ve found, and what’s the best way to use it?
Let us know. Your tips could save a colleague some badly needed time.
