Compliance from Dude Solutions, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of operations management solutions, is an addition to their computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). Part of TheWorxHub for Healthcare, the new healthcare compliance feature will empower hospitals to better manage their fast-paced and regulatory-driven environment through a single platform.
TheWorxHub for Healthcare is operations software designed specifically for healthcare facilities. It is a comprehensive, online solution to help prioritize, manage, and ensure completion of compliance-related maintenance. This “hub” for managing everything an operational team comes into contact with is easy to use and available when and where needed.
Compliance is designed to help hospitals with survey readiness and compliance efforts. The enhanced functionality will reference The Joint Commission and National Fire Protection Association codes within TheWorxHub for Healthcare, allowing users to preview requirements while working, link the codes to assets and tasks, and demonstrate proof of compliance to surveyors in real time. Additionally, users will be able to pull reports against any Standard or Element of Performance as defined by The Joint Commission.
“Hospitals are tasked with maintaining complex compliance requirements and regulatory activities that are constantly evolving,” said Shaun Rodgers, director of healthcare strategy at Dude Solutions. “Our compliance feature was designed specifically for the healthcare environment to not only help hospitals stay on top of compliance efforts to ensure patient safety remains a top priority, but to also make their difficult jobs a little easier.”
Mock audits, surveys, and inspections can be used within the system to test healthcare compliance readiness and EOC rounding templates help teams know what to look for from infection control to fire and life safety. In addition, work orders can be automated from compliance deficiency notifications and real-time reporting and analytics show issues before they happen.
On the heels of the healthcare Compliance release is Space Management, an application within TheWorxHub for Healthcare that will convert assets and tasks, such as preventive maintenance and Environment of Care round workflows, to an interactive map format. The release of the Space Management application is expected this fall.
