“We recognize the importance of policy and procedure management to our member hospitals,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has extended its exclusive endorsement of Policy & Procedure Management Software & Services from PolicyTech. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence. Following a re-evaluation of the market solutions and client feedback, PolicyTech’s Policy & Procedure Management Software & Services were selected for endorsement extension.
Without an efficient policy and procedure management system in place, hospital policies and procedures can quickly become outdated or misplaced. Health care providers are increasingly relying on dedicated new technologies to manage and coordinate these critical policies and attendant processes. PolicyTech’s Policy & Procedure Management Software & Services are specifically designed to address policy management compliance issues within hospital environments.
“We recognize the importance of policy and procedure management to our member hospitals, not only in compliance but also in ensuring high quality patient care, maximizing employee performance and achieving overall operational effectiveness,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO of AHA Solutions. “After reassessing the health care market, we are confident that the PolicyTech solution continues to effectively respond to organization’s need for a reliable, consistent and cost-effective approach to policy and procedure management and compliance. PolicyTech’s deep industry knowledge and commitment to health care are proved by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received upon referencing hospital customers.”
Since AHA’s original endorsement in 2007, PolicyTech has added many new features that have increased the software’s flexibility and ease of use including the Word Moduleplus™, which allows for instant editing of nearly all file types within the browser to avoid having to download or upload documents outside of the system. Additional enhancements include advanced reporting features, which help administrators prove compliance and readership, and improved workflows that offer more flexibility and greater efficiency.
“PolicyTech is honored to again receive the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association,” said Rob Tietjen, CEO of PolicyTech. “Our solution continues to be recognized as the leader in policy management, and the continued AHA endorsement validates our ability to deliver quality solutions to the health care industry. AHA has been a valuable partner and we are grateful to continue that relationship.”
