As a core service integrated with NWG overall Technology Planning process, Communications and Information Technology Planning begins with an initial assessment, typically during the Facility Planning stage of the project and continues through the Schematic Design Phase. The Technology Planning service includes conducting user group meetings during the Design Development Phase, which all owner requests are documented and using the consulting engineer these requests will be implemented into the Construction Documents. This service also includes managing the Construction Procurement Phase utilizing the owner’s group purchasing agreements where applicable and maintains a strict compliance within the protocol provided by the owner. NWG takes into consideration the hospital’s strategic operational plan, the patient care model, and the unique requirements of the facility when designing systems and making recommendations. This process ensures an efficient system design and the maximization of staff productivity, patient care, and patient satisfaction using state-of-the-art technology while completing the project on time and within budget. NWG Technology Planning also fulfills all Owner, architect, engineering, and contractor requirements throughout the planning and construction process and parallels the overall phases of our Technology Planning approach.

Technology Systems Planning & Procurement

Technology Planning has evolved over the years from a minor healthcare planning consideration into a fundamentally vital key of the overall planning process of allowing healthcare facilities to function at their most maximum efficiency and provide key elements for positive patient experiences. Numerous types of technology systems exist in a healthcare setting and require expertise harmonizing the intricacies of technology with the expectations of Administrative and Support Staff for all types of healthcare settings. Anticipating future technologies are design elements that our team considers in your healthcare project, whether it’s a new building or renovation of existing space.


Our planners will analyze the technology systems that are needed to see if they are effective in providing staff efficiencies, assist in delivering superior patient care and reduce time spent by the patient in communicating their health history to your facility.

Transactions Affecting the Fixed Asset Record

NoliWhite provides the documentation and audit trail necessary to support the recommended adjustments to the fixed asset property record. NoliWhite’s Inventory Management System is built on Microsoft Sharepoint Services to collect, validate, and store equipment information in real time. NoliWhite can receive and return financial record information in all common data interchange formats.

Direct Matches

For the great majority of equipment, there will be a direct match to a fixed asset record entry. NoliWhite appends manufacturer, model, ID, and location data to the record for positive and permanent identification.


In instances where a single entry represents multiple equipment items, NoliWhite allocates the original cost to the new equipment records and provides a record indicator tying the assets to the original cost and depreciation recorded.


Unrecorded asset retirements are identified and confirmed.

Normal Cost Additions

Infrequently, assets are recorded that have not previously been added to the fixed asset record. For assets in use at the facility where there is no purchase or donation history, NoliWhite will provide the estimated acquisition date, cost, and useful life information.
