When making the switch to a cloud-based policy management solution from a paper based filing system, it’s important to take a fully committed approach to utilizing the platform from the get-go. The implementation process is, in my opinion, the most important step in adopting a new policy management solution, as it sets the framework for your success as well as the success of your team with the solution in the future. Implementing the software properly, with all necessary policies and procedures added to the application, will make the transition much simpler, and ultimately more gratifying.
Why is Accessibility Important When Managing Policies and Procedures?
One of the biggest mistakes when adopting a new cloud-based policy management software solution is not taking this committed approach. You lose one basic, but major function – accessibility. It’s a tedious task to transfer paper copies of documents to a Word or PDF document, or even switching from an internal document management software to a cloud based document management system, but not completing the task will leave the users of the policy management solution confused and unable to confirm if the policy they are referencing is the most up-to-date copy available. To help with this, PolicyMedical created a service called the Concierge Service. We understand that your healthcare facility may not be able to dedicate the time it takes to make the switch to a cloud-based software solution – so we’re here to help. The Concierge Service provides assistance to clients of PolicyMedical to help them migrate to our solution as quickly and as easy as possible. Our support team will guide you throughout the process and assist in setting up your policies and procures at your healthcare facility.
How Can Cloud-Based Policy Management Software Help?
PolicyManager™ is an easy to use, centralized, cloud-based software solution that provides the capability to manage your policies and procedures – it requires a committed approach in its implementation, but once the application is ready to go live, it’s a much simpler approach to document management. One of the key features of our solution is its accessibility; you are able to provide your staff access to any policy you have uploaded into the software at any location in the hospital – and with general policy maintenance, they can rest assured the policy will be up-to-date and compliant with the appropriate regulations and standards.
Whether you require the extra help with our Concierge Service, or have the resources to make the switch on your own, the goal remains the same – providing your team the policies and procedures they require to help them get their administrative tasks done more quickly, so they can get back to what’s important – assisting patients.
