The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
IWMS and ICM are acronyms floating around in the healthcare facility management industry. But what are they and what aren’t they? Since the pandemic, healthcare facilities have been tasked with more to do, more regulations, less staff, and fewer resources overall. The necessity for streamlining operations through software is quickly becoming the standard. With hospitals answering to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for a large percentage of their funding, maintaining regulatory compliance in an efficient, sustainable manner is paramount. A hospital not being up to code for its annual accreditation survey could mean a loss of funding or at least a loss of safety, time, and staff efficiency to correct the deficiencies. Stakeholders need to be aware of the differences between these two systems and what that could mean for their bottom line.
Both IWMS and ICM are relatively new terms on the facility management scene with distinct differences. So which type of system (IWMS or ICM) is right for your healthcare facility? How are IWMS and ICM defined? And who are these systems/platforms intended to serve?
IWMS (Integrated Workplace Management System) is defined as a software platform that supports organizations in managing the use of workplace resources, including the management of a company's real estate portfolio, infrastructure and facilities assets. Its audience is corporate occupiers, real estate services firms, facilities services providers, landlords, and managing agents. 1
ICM (Integrated Compliance Management) is defined as an operations platform designed specifically for regulatory facility compliance. Generally comprised of multiple solutions designed to work seamlessly within one platform. Its audience is any healthcare business or organization needing to manage multiple facets of regulatory compliance under one umbrella. More specifically, Healthcare Engineers, Healthcare Facility Directors, Director of Quality, EH&S, Director of Safety, Infection Control, Security Managers, and Technicians. 2
What makes up these systems or platforms? What are the core functions of a typical IWMS or ICM system?
IWMS Core Functions:
ICM Core Functions
An ICM comprehensively includes each regulatory requirement area needed for reports and survey readiness in order to ensure compliance.
Broadly speaking, IWMS is general property management focused, while ICM is regulatory compliance centric. ICM is specific to healthcare facility regulatory compliance management. IWMS is for general property management outside the realm of the healthcare facility accreditation codes and standards. Although IWMS does touch on a couple of healthcare facility management areas, it does not keep up with the intricacies of accreditation standards to the degree a healthcare engineering team needs. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations are very differentiated & highly specialized outside the realm of OSHA and other non-healthcare-specific facility entities. IWMS is made for general large properties, i.e., universities, hotel chains, or large corporate offices. ICM is built for hospitals. For example, Soleran Healthcare (an ICM platform) is built & designed by healthcare facility directors, surveyors & industry experts. It creates survey readiness and a safer physical environment that IWMS can not fully provide. You can learn more about Soleran Healthcare ICM HERE.
Both IWMS & ICM can be implemented in any order—or all together as a single, comprehensive implementation. A phased approach for implementing IWMS or ICM sequentially is generally advised.
If you are looking for a corporate-wide reboot for your general property management, IWMS is a great solution. However, if you are looking for a single hospital or a healthcare system-wide regulatory compliance management system, then an ICM is your best bet. Integrated Compliance Management (ICM) is the only one specialized for healthcare and ensures your compliance funding needs are met.

Past surveys regarding emergency management have been deemed just another hurdle to overcome to meet regulatory needs. The standards were merely seen as a checkbox to fill.
