How PLAN-IT Streamlines Change Management In Medical Equipment Planning

Change management can be stressful in every industry, but in the medical field, each decision can have a major impact on visitors’ health. Without careful risk assessment, clear communication, updated training, and ongoing monitoring, a single change order could significantly affect patient care. 


Teams tasked with medical equipment planning understandably can struggle to maintain a smooth transition when construction projects change. But fortunately, there are software solutions that can streamline change management processes in medical equipment planning. And one of the most powerful products on the market is PLAN-IT from Revalize

Why change management is so challenging

Healthcare environments are notoriously complex, with interconnected processes, a wide array of stakeholders across many departments, and stringent regulatory requirements. Introducing new medical equipment or technology requires meticulous planning to ensure compatibility with existing systems and compliance with safety standards. 

The demanding schedules of healthcare professionals leave little room to adapt to change, especially when it comes to training for new equipment or processes. On top of all of this, medical equipment planners are constrained by budget limitations. 

It can be impossible to balance the needs of administrators, practitioners, and patients without project management software specifically designed for the challenges of medical equipment planning and change management.

Improving collaboration and change management

With a comprehensive, integrated equipment catalog, and world-class project management features, PLAN-IT is the leading medical equipment planning software in the world. In fact, it’s the original software for medical equipment planners, created as the first step away from the limitations of Excel. Because of its versatility, PLAN-IT is exceptional at helping equipment planners with change management. Here’s how:

Greater stakeholder visibility

PLAN-IT creates a cloud-based, central database of medical equipment inventory and order information that includes specifications, images, technical details, and location, clarifying where they belong in the facility. Stakeholders in every department are able to see the same information updated in real-time, without worrying about reviewing the wrong version of a spreadsheet or other issues that may happen with traditional equipment planning processes.

Built-in collaboration

Since the database is in the cloud, PLAN-IT allows stakeholders to work together in real-time to create equipment lists, update layouts, and share project information. Not only does everyone remain on the same page regarding changes, but they can even work together to make them in a virtual meeting.

Enhanced standards management

PLAN-IT allows users to create lists of favored equipment and vendors, and even complete room templates and standards to streamline facility buildouts. If changes are necessary because of an equipment incompatibility, updates to a template will roll out automatically to the projects that use the template, saving the manual labor it would take to individually update equipment lists for each room. This ensures that standardized changes, such as equipment preferences or regulatory compliance updates, are uniformly applied to relevant projects.

Change management is one of the most challenging parts of medical equipment planning — and the most important to get right. PLAN-IT’s cloud-based interface and versatile collaboration platform makes it easy to communicate changes to stakeholders, update documents, and tell the story of a project to leadership.
