CHICAGO, July 14, 2019Grainger (NYSE: GWW), the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products serving businesses and institutions, today announced an agreement with HealthCare Facility Compliance Corp. (HCFC) to offer Grainger health care customers a comprehensive Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solution.

 

The new CRx software is tablet-based and designed for health care customers looking to improve facility efficiency, patient experience, emergency readiness and safety monitoring in compliance with The Joint Commission Life Safety, Environment of Care and Emergency Management standards. It is built to integrate with work order systems and offers:

  • The ability to plot assets on floor plans;
  • A comprehensive document repository;
  • Detailed inspection checklists; and
  • The capability to receive reports from third-party inspection vendors.

“Since launching our health care segment in 2011, we have invested significant time in learning the complex nature of health care environments,” said Kym Orange, Grainger Manager of Healthcare Segment Strategy and Marketing. “Our new relationship with HealthCare Facility Compliance is the next step in providing additional value to help keep our health care customers operational, safe and compliant.”

CRx is available as part of the Grainger Online SafetyManager®, a suite of tools helping to make it easier for customers to manage, track and maintain critical workplace safety activity and information. The yearly subscription package for CRx includes updates, system configuration, integration with work order systems, installation and implementation tasks, user training, support and ongoing compliance monitoring services.

“CRx was designed specifically for health care systems that do not have the tools to see where they stand on compliance issues. Our software includes several patent-pending algorithms to help improve compliance, reduce costs and deliver emergency response readiness related to assets, policies and procedures, and interim life safety measures,” said Ilan Nachmany, CEO of HCFC. “CRx can help these systems manage all assets and documents and sends notifications in advance on what needs to be inspected—helping ensure the interim life safety measures are activated and documented at the time of inspection. It also provides a compliance dashboard that creates visibility across facilities.”

Hospital Facility Compliance Reaches a New Level with CRx system

HealthCare Facility Compliance Corp delivers CRx system for Risk analysis and ongoing hospital compliance with Environment of Care, Life Safety and Emergency Management standards

HealthCare Facility Compliance Corp delivers CRx system for Risk analysis and ongoing hospital compliance with Environment of Care, Life Safety and Emergency Management standards

ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (PRWEB) APRIL 10, 2018

HealthCare Facility Compliance Corporation (HCFC) announced today the delivery of the expanded CRx healthcare facility compliance software solution, incorporating risk analysis and Interim Life Safety Measure determination.

“While CRx covers all Elements of Performance (EP) as mandated by the Joint Commission for its Environment of Care, Life Safety and Emergency Management chapters, it now incorporates a risk analysis module based on the Joint Commission Interim Life Safety Measure requirements and each hospital’s specific policy. This makes the CRx system a fully comprehensive, compliance readiness system,” said Ilan Nachmany, HCFC CEO.

“The HCFC CRx System streamlined our daily rounds by eliminating our previous two-step manual system whereby we no longer capture the event and document it later. The CRx system allows us to accomplish all our daily tasks relating to environment of care, life safety and emergency management more efficiently. The CRx system allows us to be current at all times by documenting the information at the time of inspection or at the time activities are performed. Our work orders are now automatically created, with pictures and notes captured at the time of inspection, notifying us if risk analysis is required and, if so, suggest ILSM-needed activities based on the risk analysis results. When orders are closed, inspection status is automatically updated and stops the ILSM. We are extremely pleased with the efficiency CRx provides,” said Mr. Steve Mosser, Vice President Facility Management at Holy Name Medical Center, a fully accredited, not-for-profit comprehensive 361-bed medical center, based in Teaneck, NJ.

The patent pending CRx system provides a complete compliance solution related to Environment of Care, Life Safety and Emergency Management 24/7. CRx integrates and syncs with all Work Order systems. CRx covers hundreds of EPs’ related policies, fire drills, rounds, and all documentation required for each EP and now includes a full risk analysis and Interim Life Safety module. Its Dashboard shows and tracks deficiencies for every EP, due or past due. The Dashboard reminds staff of required tasks, shows when tasks are completed, updates work orders, preventive maintenance data, files and inserts all information to the appropriate e-Binders.

“We are very proud of our accomplishment in providing healthcare facility management and their staff with a system which includes a view of life safety drawings while assets are dropped onto floor plans. Detailed Inspection points are provided for each asset and can be inspected by their staff as well as their vendors with the ability to take pictures and insert notes. Now, having the ability to conduct risk analysis and determine Interim Life Safety directly from the CRx system at inspection point, provides our customers a real value-added, cost saving, risk management solution,” said Sumer Mathur, HCFC COO.

“As a newcomer to Holy Name Medical Center, I was amazed by the ease and extensiveness of the CRx solution. Having interactive Safer Matrix, alerts, powerful reports, ongoing EP monitoring tools and complete inspection points for every asset is extremely beneficial. Now, having integrated risk scores which are applied to our specific Risk Assessment policy, suggesting ILSM explicit actions, determining impact and providing full process documentation with a complete detailed drill down capability to review inspections’ status, makes it an amazing complete in depth solution covering all compliance requirements,” said Scott Gorman, Holy Name Medical Center Manager of Safety Emergency Preparedness.

“I was working with HCFC from day one on the implementation on the CRx solution at our facility and was stunned by the speed of the implementation and the adaptation of our team to the CRx solution. Having the added ILSM modules makes it a straightforward full healthcare facility compliance solution. I have no doubt many healthcare facilities will soon enjoy the solution, while at the same time, benefit from the cost savings, which we have already experienced,” said Stephen Bennett, Director Plant Maintenance.
