As equipment operates throughout its useful lifecycle, signs of failure will begin to manifest. Neglecting these warning signs can lead to functional failure and ultimately catastrophic failure. Without access to the appropriate resources or a robust asset management program, many health care facilities professionals struggle to escape the vicious cycle known as “reactive maintenance,” wherein a team’s bandwidth to address intentional maintenance activities is lost to backlog of deferred maintenance.

Use this tool to assess the current condition of a system or facility’s asset management program and benchmark the effectiveness of the current investment strategy.
