A Conversation with The Johns Hopkins Hospital

Lowering the Cost of Healthcare from Inside Out

By Daniel R. Matlis

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Tom Lentz at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Tom is Manager of IT and Finance for the Facilities Department at Hopkins.

During our discussion, I shared Axendia’s research and analysis on “Lowering the Cost of Healthcare from Inside Out”. We also discussed current pressures facing healthcare providers including the need to improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs, while ensuring compliance with a applicable regulations. In addition, the proliferation of Medical Technologies has created a new level of complexity and risks for Healthcare organizations.

To respond to these new challenges, healthcare providers are seeking ways to effectively manage a sophisticated mix of clinical, biomedical and facilities systems and equipment.

During our session, Tom discussed how The Johns Hopkins Hospital uses its Integrated Asset and Service Management system to:

  • Improve uptime to support patient care
  • Control costs for procurement, maintenance, labor and materials
  • Support regulatory compliance and reporting activities
  • Improve internal controls with automated workflows
  • Gain efficiencies by mobilizing asset management
