Why Healthcare Organizations Move to Nuvolo

10. Ease of Use

Submit any service request and keep track of that request through our mobile app or online portal; self-service at its best.

Most of the self-service request information is pre-populated; you don’t need to know or find out all the details. Describe your problem, fill out a few other fields; the system will route the request to the right support team.

9. Robust Mobile App for Technicians

IT, HTM, and Facilities Technicians all use Nuvolo’s mobile app to work quickly and efficiently throughout your hospital campus.

Technicians have instant access to the work orders, device service history, service manuals, knowledge bases, spare parts inventory, and training videos. They complete the assigned work directly from the mobile application and track their performance.

8. Interactive Floor Maps

Our interactive floor plans provide easy collaboration with all people, all physical locations, devices, and all work. Staff and technicians easily navigate to all hospital rooms, devices, and work orders.

Using sensor technology allows for the tracking of your medical devices in real-time on those same floor maps.

7. Medical Device Management

The Connected Hospital platform tracks each medical device, keeps them secure, manages existing inventory, resolve any technical issues that arise, and shares the platform with IT and Facilities for comprehensive medical equipment management.

It doesn’t matter if IT, HTM, or Facilities fixes the device, work orders are updated on the same mobile app, and the asset service history you might otherwise be missing is captured.

6. Cyber Security

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) market is expanding exponentially; medical devices are connecting to your network in unprecedented numbers.

Nuvolo brings medical device data into the same platform, where IT, Security, and HTM teams share visibility. IT knows where the medical device is, knows what it is, and can act on threats and vulnerabilities.

5. Superior Work Order Automation

When devices, locations, and work orders are captured on one platform, you can create smart dispatching.

Smart dispatching uses workflows and business rules to automatically route work orders based on location, certifications, vendor support, etc. The nearest technician in the field with the right availability, skills, and certifications is assigned the work order.

4. Smarter Planned Maintenance

Planned maintenance work orders are designed to auto-route based on asset type, model, location, date, certifications, asset performance, etc. All the service history intelligence is used to understand equipment maintenance better and create more efficient timelines.

You can automate and plan clinical device maintenance or use specific workflows to create Alternative Equipment Maintenance (AEM) programs that ensure safety and compliance.

3. Efficient Joint Commission and DNV Tracking & Reporting

Adhere to Joint Commission and DNV reporting requirements with incredible accurate medical device and work order history data.

Our one platform solution gives you centralized data and pre-designed compliance reports. If we don’t have the right report, it can easily be created to meet the changing regulatory requirements.

2. Return on Investment – ROI

Support teams working off the same platform gives you unprecedented data accuracy. You’ll capture the business intelligence to make significant cost savings decisions.

Create dashboards to spot trends, identify problem equipment, measure work order response times, track labor utilization, and efficiently manage resources. Use analytics for medical device purchasing recommendations and to accurately forecast new equipment purchases. And, much more.

1. Enabling the Connected Hospital

Eliminate those department silos! The Connected Hospital is where support teams like HTM, IT, Real Estate, Maintenance, Supply Chain, Pharmacy, Clinical Care, and more, work together on one platform to support the doctors, nurses, and all care team staff.

With Nuvolo’s connected hospital platform, the actionable analytics for clinical device inventory, work orders, space planning, and more are invaluable.  All that data on one platform will transform the level of service your hospital provides.
