ECRI-AIMS has announced a new system for managing all aspects of technologybased assets found in European and international healthcare institutions. It is a web-browser application, enabling data stored centrally by the hospital to be accessed via a web browser connected to the hospital intranet. There is no client software to install and ECRI-AIMS therefore can be used by personnel at all levels at any time.
The system provides a complete resource for managing equipment inventory information, work orders, service contracts, spare parts, purchasing and stock control in a secure, comprehensive package.
ECRI-AIMS has been specifically developed to meet the needs of European healthcare by ECRI, in partnership with Phoenix Data Systems Inc. In addition to the main system components, there are more than ten optional modules available. With the optional EasyNet PlusTM, equipment users can raise and progress requests for service and also view equipment lists and history information via a web browser.
Among the additional modules currently available are:
• Parts & Purchasing
• Service Contract Management
• Performance & Quality
• Advanced Preventive Maintenance
• Resource Management
