SAN FRANCISCO, CA -Limited budgets, delayed approvals and minimizing risk managers concerns are only a few of the challenges public school officials face when trying to initiate, manage and maintain AED programs. Multiple facilitiesin geographically diverse locations ranging from classroom to athletic to administrative present a new, complex element to already strained policies and management practices faced by school districts.
Commonly public school officials appoint specific site contacts to manage the AED programs of each school and then oversee the records at a higher, district-wide level. Such methods are usually successful in mitigating errors and failures in adhering to record-keeping practices, but they aren’t foolproof. Arch insures that the ” t’s” are crossed and the “i’s” dotted. Arch offers the full support of highly skilled Medical Directors and the benefits of the world’s most advanced online oversight program.
Arch has built a customized set of alerts using some of the Silicon Valley’s most advanced technology. Users can define their preferences and submit their AED readiness check confirmations via email, fax, text-message and phone.
With Arch, school officials can keep track of the readiness checks and “status” reports for each of their facilities as well as choose escalation practices so that they’re notified if maintenance requirements are not being met. For instance, if a school on the west side of town doesn’t complete its readiness check on time, Arch, based on the school district’s preferences, will send a reminder to the school, and a copy to district’s administrator. If this does not result in a response in a designated time period, Arch can send a text message to the site contact, district administrator or anyone else appointed by the account. If still no response, Arch can notify the AEDs distributor and Annuvia for personal contact.
“One of the primary concerns we see with school districts across the country is that certain locations spearhead the management of their AED program whereas others ignore their readiness email reminders and the vital replacement of accessories such as batteries and electrode pads,” states Micah Bongberg, President of Annuvia, the developers of Arch, the country’s most advanced AED management program.
“When school districts use the Arch platform, they’re able to keep better track of their AED programs and be warned preemptively, with more advanced notice to replace vital – MANDATORY – replacement accessories.”
More ways to keep track of records, more ways to stay in compliance, and more accurate record-keeping. That is Arch. Compliance.Assurance.Reliability.
