Most organizations miss the mark in defining their investment in their P&P programs. Join the internationally recognized Policies and Procedures authority Raymond Urgo to learn the essential components and reasons for having a balanced investment in Policies and Procedures, and the consequences when unbalanced. He will share leading-edge practices for P&P and his observations as to where most organizations stand in their P&P investments. Topics related to P&P programs will include the content development process, communicating content, organizing content, technology trends, and expertise for P&P.

This session will also cover guidelines to tame the multitude of Policies and Procedures that today’s healthcare organizations must enforce to remain viable. Specifically, best practices for organizing Policies and Procedures, especially in complex organizations, and proactively educating targeted staff to avoid overexposure will be discussed.

Presenters will discuss the traditional methods compared to the latest trends in the automation of policy & procedure management through web based applications. We will also review best practices for managing policies and procedures in an electronic or web format. In addition there will be a live demonstration HospitalPortal.net Policy Manager. The Policy Manager is a centralized system for managing policies, procedures, and documents across departments in hospitals and other healthcare organizations.
