Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center's Improved Performance Pays Off After First Audit

Director of quality management, Chris Bliersbach, cuts costs while increasing productivity and compliance with the implementation of PolicyTech.


Improved Performance Pays Off After First Audit
The largest medical facility in the region, Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) is a modern, JCAHO-accredited, 331-bed full-service hospital located in Idaho Falls. The organization had struggled to keep policy binders current and effectively distributed to hospital employees. Additionally, the policy committee meetings cost the hospital more than $14,000 per year on top of annual Joint Commission audits.

After implementing NAVEX Global software at two former hospitals, a hospital’s director of quality management, Chris Bliersbach, implemented PolicyTech policy management software as the management solution for EIRMC, allowing them to cut costs while increasing productivity and compliance.

Read the full case study to learn how the implementation of NAVEX Global’s PolicyTech as the solution for each hospital created a common workflow, increased productivity and compliance, and accomplished the following company objectives:

  • Automate and digitize their policy management processes;
  • Eliminate the costs of printing and minimize the time spent in costly meetings; and
  • Create an accessible hub where documents could be quickly organized, updated and distributed to the EIRMC team.
