AHA Endorsement:

Policy & Procedure Management Software & Services

"Now, we are confident that employees know where to find policies and that we are covered both in a quality and legal manner because the policies are all up to date. It puts my mind at ease knowing every employee has the same information." – David Robinson, Director of IT, Sumner Mental Health Center

Without an efficient system in place, hospital policies and procedures can quickly become out of date or misplaced. Health care providers are increasingly relying on dedicated new technologies to manage and coordinate these critical documents and attendant processes.

Why We Endorsed Policy & Procedure Management Software & Services from NAVEX Global

The PolicyTech policy and procedure management software and services from NAVEX Global are designed specifically to address the complex compliance environment of hospitals.
