Orlando, Fla. – January 15, 2020 – PowerDMS announced today an agreement with DNV GL Healthcare to include the National Integrated Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations (NIAHO®) standards, making both the Acute Care and Critical Access manuals available for use with PowerDMS – a policy, training, and accreditation management platform.
The PowerDMS accreditation solution provides healthcare organizations with an intuitive tool to crosswalk their policies and procedures to NIAHO® standards. PowerDMS ensures survey readiness by creating a dynamic, living relationship between an organization’s compliance documents and the standards requirements. When a standard is updated, PowerDMS notifies the organization and flags which documents need review as a result of the changes. This saves organizations substantial time and resources and ensures ongoing survey readiness.
PowerDMS also serves as a document control solution with powerful automation tools to ensure regular review of policies. Since switching to PowerDMS, War Memorial Hospital in Michigan has saved the equivalent of a full-time employee by streamlining policy collaboration and updates across their 28 locations.
“We are using PowerDMS to provide access and control review and revisions across a multi-site healthcare system. It allows all of our offices to access the policies and sends the proper reminders when policies need reviewed. We also set up the workflows so that approval can be automatic.” – Stephanie Pins, Accreditation Manager at War Memorial Hospital
