Life safety standards are designed to protect lives and property from the risk of fire and similar hazards. In healthcare, the bulk of life safety standards are derived from two codes published by the non-profit standards body, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). These codes are: NFPA 101 Life Safety Code (LSC) and NFPA 99 Health Care Facilities Code. The NFPA standards are regularly updated in response to new building techniques and occupational patterns. Government agencies such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) adopt these LSC changes in periodic rulings.
This drawings-centric architecture is uniquely positioned to help enhance life safety management requirements, because life safety management tasks are also highly dependent ondrawings accuracy.
Specifically, VLogic’s life safety portfolio includes the following software solutions and professional services:

Yes. VLogicFM was designed for this scenario. Facility Managers can show any VLogicFM-based drawing from their iPad, smart device, or laptop, including life safety drawings. The VLogicFM Fire & Safety module goes one step further and shows the connections between drawings components, or shows color-coded smoke zones, etc.
Yes. VLogicFM links life safety intelligence (data fields) to the individual spaces on the drawings, which allows you to display space by its characteristics. For example, display color-coded spaces by risk level, space function, occupation type, etc.
Yes. The app-based form is the same as the paper-based form. The only difference is that you can answer the question much faster with pull-down menus on the app than physically writing them on paper. Plus, you don’t have to transcribe the app form, like you have to do for the paper form.
