Nuvolo partners with GE Healthcare on cloud based enterprise asset management

by Gus Iversen , Editor in Chief
GE Healthcare has implemented the latest version of Nuvolo Clinical EAM for the management of more than 3 million medical devices in the U.S. and Canada.

The system, built on ServiceNow and providing online and offline mobile functionality, is designed to modernize usability and analytic insight of asset management while also tightening security and reducing some of the redundancy that can result from using outdated solutions.

According to Tom Stanford, CEO of Nuvolo, an antiquated install base of CMMS and EAM systems — coupled with the continuing trend of health care consolidation — has made this particular market segment "ripe for disruption" as providers juggle multiple vendors and systems across the enterprise with unnecessarily complex asset management tools.

"If you take a step back and look at the last several years, where you once had 6,000 health care providers you now have 3,500 and in a few years you will have 2,500," Stanford told HCB News, adding that when hospitals merge they often wind up with multiple systems of record. "Each [system] has its own corresponding ecosystems so when a vulnerability like WannaCry emerges you have to figure out which devices are connected and which are an exact match to the patch vulnerability that a cyber threat will apply to."

In addition to enhanced security, the Nuvolo EAM is designed to simplify data analytics to ensure systems are being serviced and utilized in a way that maximizes their productivity and hospital efficiency.

"Nuvolo EAM enables us to deliver world-class results for our customers with one cloud-based system for work order management, parts contracts, knowledge management and cyber-security threat mitigation for network-connected medical devices," said Rob Reilly, vice president and general manager, U.S. and Canada Services, GE Healthcare.

Nuvolo is currently responsibly for full life cycle management of more than 5.3 million clinical devices across 3,120 health care providers with more than 3,840 field service workers using the EAM platform for service management.
