Accruent Releases Connectiv 8.3 to Streamline Parts Ordering and Improve Hospital Operations

It has been over one year since a national public health emergency was declared as America began grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic and the first patients with the novel coronavirus arrived at our nation’s hospitals and health systems. Despite the arrival of multiple COVID-19 vaccines and a growing number of Americans who have been vaccinated, the pandemic continues to take its toll. Kaufman Hall recently projected that hospitals and health systems could lose an additional $53 to $122 billion in revenue in 2021.

To help our customers improve their delivery of care and optimize operational efficiency, Accruent has added key functionality and improvements to its flagship Healthcare Asset Management platform in the Connectiv 8.3 release, allowing healthcare organizations to:

  • Improve the parts procurement process and reduce costs with a new full integration with PartsSource
  • Automate creation of purchase requests, purchase orders and part transactions in Connectiv and gain back technician hours spent on manual ordering
  • Link Connectiv work orders to PartSource records and track order updates directly in Connectiv
  • Optimize operational efficiency with additional new enhancements in the 8.3 release
