    Sainte Anne Hospital, Paris, France   

    Sainte-Anne Hospital created its Biomedical Department with a focus on assets and maintenance management, risk management and cost reduction, using AssetPlus. Beyond equipment inventory and maintenance management, the solution allows the biomedical team to manage contracts, track assets records and plan investments while accounting for the cost of acquisition, cost of ownership, and usage.   

    “Tracking is the basis of a genuine qualitative event-based approach. It highlights where improvement is needed, including in terms of organization. When you see that maintenance costs are growing, you can isolate the related costs for each department and clarify your budget reports. We give objective input for priorities management; we are also able to give clear recommendations for curative actions...Analyzing the AssetPlus data, we can define investment priorities, estimate costs, as well as fine-tune options such as training and operations.”
