Accruent, a provider of physical resource management solutions, has acquired California-based Connectiv, enhancing Accruent’s ability to meet the needs of clients in health care. This marks Accruent’s seventh company acquisition in the past 24 months as it strives to help clients have control and visibility across asset management solutions.
Connectiv is a cloud-based, mobile-enabled software company that allows biomedical and clinical engineering groups to manage and control all aspects of their medical devices and equipment. Connectiv software helps health care organizations fulfill their mission by mitigating risk, ensuring regulatory compliance and maximizing utilization. Connectiv is a ServiceNow Technology Partner automating the management of medical applications, devices and facilities.
“With 67 percent of medical device manufacturers and 56 percent of health care providers believing an attack on their devices is likely to occur within a year, we saw the urgency to provide a solution for managing biomedical assets,” said Accruent CEO John Borgerding. “We are acquiring Connectiv because their software, co-created with clinical engineers in national health care organizations, enables management of medical devices across the lifecycle, including automatic security monitoring that identifies threats in minutes. Connectiv’s biomedical asset management solution has the feature set and the flexibility to address changing health care needs, new technologies and regulatory demands.”
With hospitals and clinical providers looking for the user-friendliness and control of a master IT platform, Connectiv leverages the Now Platform from ServiceNow Inc., enabling automated management across clinical applications and medical assets.
“Connectiv is a fast-to-scale company, and we’ve built our business and platform to meet the underserved needs of health care clinical engineers,” said Connectiv CEO Rob Woodbyrne. “Since our founding, we’ve brought more transparency to health care organizations as they manage technology and optimize the delivery of health care. Now, as part of the global Accruent team, we’re primed to build on a well-established base to achieve rapid global expansion.”
The acquired solution set and its planned enhancements will continue serving existing Connectiv customers, and will be offered as a complement to Accruent’s existing suite of health care solutions in asset and maintenance management, lease accounting and capital planning. The acquisition, effective immediately, includes the continuation of existing Connectiv product development, support and sales resources.
