ARC® Launches Mobile Dashboards for Schools, Hospitals
ARC’s mobile dashboards support information management needs for healthcare, education and government facilities teams.
ARC®, an information management company, introduces two cloud-based mobile dashboards to help facilities teams manage emergency and life safety information and healthcare compliance.
Both dashboards allow emergency response and management teams to respond faster and improve productivity and efficiency, says the company. Both can also be accessed through handheld devices, smartphones, tablets and desktops.
The ARC Emergency and Life Safety dashboard allows its users to access all emergency response checklists and safety protocols. It provides access to evacuation plans, shut-off valves, safe harbor areas, floor plans, emergency maps, fire protection and emergency contacts.
The dashboard also includes incident-specific action plans for emergencies such as active shooters, fires, floods and bomb threats, making it especially helpful for educational institutions and large campuses where student and civilian safety is essential.
“In emergency management, being able to access critical information from anywhere and share it with your team and first responders in minutes is crucial to mitigating loss and damage,” says Brian Bailard, EVP and general manager for ARC Technology Solutions, a unit of ARC Document Solutions. “Most teams only have access to paper files, binders or flipcharts. During an emergency, the one thing you’ll have in your pocket or purse is your phone, which would now have all emergency information available at your fingertips.”
Additional features include the ability to track self-audit due dates, schedule vendors, set compliance mandate alerts and validate maintenance, testing and inspections.
“Forty to sixty percent of hospitals’ revenue comes from Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements. Being compliant is not optional, it’s mandatory,” says Kumar Wiratunga, vice president at ARC Technology Solutions. “Compliant management of this documentation is a requirement that all healthcare facilities professionals must meet in order to maintain good standing with the federal government—and keeping up with all the requirements in a corresponding documentation is a monumental task.”
