CannonDesign Launches REALIZE Life Safety Solutions

In response to changes to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Life Safety Code, CannonDesign has launched REALIZE Life Safety Solutions — a suite of services and software solutions focused on helping healthcare facilities teams assess their compliance with life safety code standards related to CFR 482.41Condition of participation: Physical environment — without operational disruptions.

CannonDesign created REALIZE Life Safety Solutions to help clients navigate through CMS’s most recent Final Rule, which adopted the National Fire Protection Association’s 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101), as well as provisions of the NFPA’s 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code (NFPA 99). All health facilities that participate in Medicare and/or Medicaid must comply with these code changes.

With experience assessing more than 200 million square feet of space, life safety is not a new service area for CannonDesign. However, REALIZE Life Safety Solutions packages the firm’s life safety services into an easily customizable offering focused on three primary areas:

  • Life Safety Current State: Life safety drawings review, field verification and key findings report of current Life Safety for owned or leased facilities.
  • Code Review: Review and report of physical conditions based on 2012 Life Safety Codes.
  • Corrective Action Plan: Corrective action report containing prioritized deficiencies, cost estimates and recommendations for remediation.
