BEST RATED HEALTHCARE CMMS FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS TEAMS
Hospital CMMS Maintenance Software
Several issues prompt hospitals and healthcare organisations to begin the search for a healthcare facilities management software that can meet the demand of the department and the organization in a whole. First, the hospital's legacy CMMS is over 10 years old or the facility manager has been using excel or word to document paper requests. Beyond that, the system may not be web-based, and it no longer can properly support the departments many areas of responsibility, which include everything from plant operations and maintenance to energy management, environmental services, patient escort, operations support, and parking and valet services. Technicians need to work on hand-helds through Smartphones.
The team researching CMMS and or a new healthcare facilities management software are typically from facilities operations, facilities planning and development, information systems (IS), and security services. Team members look for a system that would let managers monitor key performance indicators (KPI) related to department activities. These KPIs included demand work, preventive work, joint commission activity, preventive maintenance (PM) work orders past due, PM compliance, inspection-completion rate, and facility condition index. The new healthcare facilities management software must be robust enough to meet the future vision and needs of the department.
Maxpanda healthcare facilities management software has a very nice feature that monitors these activities. For example it notifies Admins if there has been similar work orders on the same piece of asset triguring a cause and effect alarm. Hospitals and other healthcare organizations use an extraordinary amount of equipment in day-to-day operations. Simply keeping records of things like maintenance, liability risks, funding, and patient care is not enough. Hospitals need a software program that provides maintenance management for medical equipment of all types and identifies as many vulnerabilities as possible.
Benefits for patients Obviously, the number one priority for any healthcare organization is its patients, and this is another area where Maxpanda Facilities Managent CMMS Software shines.

Benefits for supply management It can be difficult to keep an accurate inventory of supplies in large healthcare facilities especially with legacy systems or spreadsheets. As shifts turn over and multiple departments access the same storage areas trouble begins.

Detailed tracking can also give you a good idea which shifts or departments consume more supplies. Benefits for risk assessment Our Facilities Managent CMMS Software is equipped with unique functionality that allow users to assess the potential risks of certain projects, equipment and investments, which in turn makes healthcare organizations more prepared.

10 Habits of a Successful Healthcare Managers
1. Make decisions quickly Successful leaders are expert decision makers. A General Manager's day is filled around the clock with meetings and exchanges with staff, guests, vendors, suppliers and new recruits, etc. The goal of each meeting and encounter is to make decisions. Successful Healthcare Managers either empower their employees to reach a desirable outcome or they do it themselves. They focus on “making things happen” at all times – encouraging progress and keeping their Healthcare Managers above par.
2. Get out of the office Years of hands-on experience in the trenches have finally led to a nice, large office, but don't get too comfortable. With so many meeting, emails, and administrative tasks to attend to, it's easy to get trapped. Spend too much time in the office and you may lose track of what is happening in the "front of house." So make it a practice to spend a little time each day walking around the Healthcare Managers, helping the front desk, directing and motivating employees, inspecting rooms, interacting with a guest or two. This will help you understand your employees, guests and Healthcare Managers better.
3. Lead by example People truly follow only those they trust. If you want to gain the trust and confidence of your employees you must set an example for them. This may sound easy, but few leaders are consistent with this one. Successful leaders practice what they preach and are attentive of their actions.
4. Surround yourself with the right people This is easier said than done as high employee turnover continue to plague the hospitality industry - wreaking havoc on productivity, morale and the Healthcare Managers's bottom line. Reports show that 54% of organizations see greater new hire productivity and 50% higher retention rates for new hires when they have a well-planned onboarding process in place. You already know that first impressions are so important when it comes to Healthcare Managers guests, well the same goes for new recruits: Give them an exceptional first experience; so you can both know you made the right choice.
5. Motivate your employees - The ball is in your court. According to a recent study by Dale Carnegie Training, less than 20% of non-management employees are fully engaged (aka, fully motivated and productive) and the single most important factor influencing engagement is an employee’s relationship with his or her direct manager.
6. Delegate Don't try to do everything yourself and don't micromanage. Communicate the Healthcare Managers's mission, vision, values, and goals, etc., then step back and let your staff take it from there. Setting this example will encourage your department heads and managers to do the same.
7. Measure and reward performance Studies show that a lack of praise and recognition is a top reason that employees are unhappy at their jobs. Successful managers (Healthcare Managers GMs included) are active in recognizing and acknowledging hard work and are mindful of rewarding top performers. These employees and their efforts should not be taken for granted - they are the ones who will help you achieve your company goals and, potentially, motivate others to become more engaged. They are also the examples other employees look to when trying to improve themselves professionally.
8. Implement the right technologies Technology is the key to running a Healthcare Managers in this modern day and age, from managing a guest's experience, to property management, to employee training. While rolling out new technologies can be daunting, the benefits are worthwhile and often necessary to remain competitive.
9. Take Responsibility Great leaders know when to accept that mistakes have been made and take it upon themselves to fix them. It doesn’t help to point a finger or place blame, if you are the leader, you need to take responsibility, attend to the matter, learn from the situation and then move on.
10. Love your job Successful Healthcare Managers love being leaders, after all, making a difference in other people's lives is why you chose the hospitality industry in the first place. Being a successful Healthcare Managers is all about your ability to serve others and this can’t be accomplished unless you genuinely enjoy what you do.
