The most trusted name in compliance reporting

NFPA Conference & Expo - BuildingReports expands Healthcare solution

NFPA Conference & Expo - Chicago, IL: -BuildingReports, the trusted leader in web-based inspection reporting, today launched an expanded ScanSeries Healthcare inspection solution at the 2013 NFPA Conference and Expo.

New ExtinguisherScan and SprinklerScan Healthcare formats were made possible due to a major programming enhancement recently completed by the BuildingReports development team. The enhancement allows the current and historical inspection data for each individual device to generate dynamically within a single compliance report. The existing FireScan Healthcare report has been upgraded with the enhancement provided complimentary to the BuildingReports network of Member Service Companies, Facilities and Fire Officials.

“With the new programming enhancements and additional Healthcare reporting formats, BuildingReports’ ScanSeries offers a formidable compliance package for medical centers and healthcare facilities,” explains Jason Kronz, President and Chief Technology Officer of BuildingReports. “The new formats were developed based on Accreditation Organization guidelines and feedback from our 600 strong service member network and their 5500 hospital and medical facility clients.”

Healthcare facilities must provide detailed inspection reports to accreditation organizations like The Joint Commission, DNV Healthcare (Det Norske Veritas) and HFAP (Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program) during accreditation surveys of their facilities. BuildingReports’ ScanSeries Healthcare reporting formats are specifically designed to meet the rigorous reporting requirements defined by these organizations. For example the formats for review by The Joint Commission surveyors include their latest EC (Environment of Care) and LS (Life Safety) codes.

ScanSeries Healthcare formats include features such as:

  • Data from previous inspections is integrated into the report to provide facility managers with a complete inspection summary as required by accreditation organizations
  • Inspection data for each individual device is automatically generated into the corresponding interval field or column
  • Inspected devices are split into accreditation organization standards and/or NFPA standards throughout every section of the report and print separately for easy binder insertion
  • Hyperlinked code headings for rapid report navigation
