These time saving features are designed to take some of the pain away from daily program management activities
Verona, NJ (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
LiveProcess, the market leader in emergency preparedness and incident management solutions for healthcare, today announced the release of Version 4.75 of their web-based platform.
The newest release offers a host of timesaving productivity enhancements including flexible and scalable Incident Command System (ICS) charts, a Downloadable Document Archive and enhanced document management and inventory management.
The LiveProcess Customizable ICS is a flexible and scalable solution that will help organizations simplify daily operations and launch a rapid response to any emergency or unplanned-for event. Emergency management professionals can now modify their Hospital Incident Command System (HICS), customize ICS roles, sections, hierarchies and Job Action Sheets (JAS) to meet the specific needs of their facility, while maintaining full compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) guidelines.
The LiveProcess Downloadable Document Archive generates a complete set of a facility's documents and information created on the LiveProcess platform. The file can be stored on a local network or on a CD for easy offline access.
An enhanced Document Management interface helps users to better maintain their library of important forms and other materials and now has a streamlined upload process for importing multiple documents.
The LiveProcess Inventory Management interface now tracks the physical location of emergency response materials, part numbers and inventory tag numbers, and can sort inventory by item age.
"With this newest software release, LiveProcess brings our customers exactly what they've asked for ― greater flexibility and scalability," said Nathaniel Weiss, founder and CEO.
"These time saving features are designed to take some of the pain away from daily program management activities," said Mitch Saruwatari, VP of Quality and Compliance, adding that "the customizable ICS feature will appeal to public health agencies, system administrators, smaller hospitals, and ambulatory facilities because users will be able to include as much or as little detail as they want while still remaining consistent with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) guidelines."
LiveProcess was established in the wake of the September 11th attacks and the worldwide SARS outbreak in response to widespread recognition that healthcare needed a better way to plan and respond to disasters. In 2003, LiveProcess launched its centralized, web-based disaster preparation and incident management platform - the first of its kind for healthcare - to help healthcare organizations prepare for and respond to both large- and small-scale emergencies and disasters. Today, it is the leader in emergency management for hospitals.
The LiveProcess platform is used by hundreds of hospitals across the country. In addition, the American Hospital Association (AHA) has exclusively endorsed LiveProcess as the choice for disaster readiness and incident command solutions for its more than 5,000 member hospitals.
The LiveProcess platform provides hospitals, other healthcare providers and public health agencies with the ability to evaluate and manage their own preparedness and state of readiness, as well as coordinate response with other entities. Its broad and growing range of fully-integrated tools include Hazard Vulnerability Analyses (HVAs), an integrated Incident Command System (ICS), NIMS Compliance activities, Drills for Readiness and Compliance, a real-time Event Log, and Competency-Based Training capabilities.
