Keep track of your policy review due dates

January 12, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Last summer, the Michigan Medicine Compliance Office implemented a new process and related tools for managing health system policies.

As part of that new process, responsibility for tracking review/revision dates was transferred to policy owners and their responsible leaders as defined in UMHS Policy 01-01-001, Development, Review and Approval of UMHS Policies. The tools are accessible from the Policy Table of Contents page in the right side navigation box under “Policy Owner Tools & Resources.”

The spreadsheets are updated monthly. Overdue policies are highlighted in red.

Please note that the Joint Commission assesses our compliance with the three-year review requirement as well as with the policy content itself. It’s therefore very important that we review and update policies on time.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Michigan Medicine Compliance Office.
