PolicyManager, a scalable SaaS-based healthcare policy and procedure management platform, now supports crosswalking of policies to the CAP Accreditation Checklists
Toronto, Canada – April 16, 2018 – PolicyMedical, a leading provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance GRC software for healthcare, today announced a collaboration with the College of American Pathologists (CAP), a leading organization of board-certified pathologists that serves patients, pathologists and the public by fostering and advocating excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine worldwide. The agreement allows PolicyMedical to link directly to the CAP Checklists through its Regulations & Standards Manager module in PolicyManager®, a SaaS-based enterprise collaborative policy and procedure management platform designed specifically for healthcare. Healthcare organizations can now seamlessly crosswalk their policies created and stored in PolicyManager to the twenty-one discipline-specific CAP Accreditation Checklists which contain approximately 3,000 requirements that are used during laboratory accreditation inspections.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with the CAP. Direct linkage to the Laboratory Accreditation Program Checklists enables our customers to simplify their accreditation process by automating and streamlining the workflows involved with ensuring their policies and procedures are compliant with the checklists,” said Dr. Sanjaya Kumar, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Product Strategist, PolicyMedical. “Automating the process within PolicyManager to be directly alerted of any checklist updates with real-time email notifications allows busy healthcare professionals to focus their time and efforts on delivering high-value patient care while safeguarding their organizations by maintaining regulatory compliance with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations.”
“We are pleased to collaborate with PolicyMedical to make the CAP Accreditation Checklists readily available to their clients. The CAP is committed to the highest standards in pathology and laboratory medicine and ensuring those standards are applied by healthcare organizations for the benefit of patients. Patients count on pathology and laboratory medicine for accurate diagnoses and the consistent quality of their test results,” said Bharati Jhaveri, MD, FCAP, chair of the CAP Council on Accreditation. “Automating and simplifying the accreditation process will enable our customers to focus on improving patient engagement and safety.”
