You no longer have to attain a SAMS Level 3 account. This isn't such a big benefit if you already have access at your facility, but the real benefit here is that anyone with an EasyReporting account can report for your facility. That means if you want to go on vacation or want to offload NHSN reporting to another staff, it's not difficult at all to set them up in EasyReporting and they are good to go. Having access to the NHSN through EasyReporting gives you flexibility and redundancy.

The "i" icon allows you to see which people count toward that number, and you can even click the number and change it if you need to. This workflow saves manager hours every week; the fact that EasyReporting calculates all the hard numbers for you but lets you tweak them before they are transmitted to the NHSN. It is the best of both worlds.
