Deadline approaching: Upload your PP&Gs by Dec. 31
The Michigan Medicine Office of Corporate Compliance and the InterProfessional Policy Committee (IPPC) are encouraging all leaders and departments to complete their policy, procedure and guideline (PP&G) transition to PolicyStat by Dec. 31.
With Michigan Medicine’s PP&Gs located in more than one place, this poses a major risk to patient safety. The PolicyStat Implementation team has developed a process to assist departments with the transition.
The faster the outstanding policies are moved to PolicyStat, the closer the organization will be to reducing harm and avoiding mistakes due to incorrect policies and time spent locating them.
It is important that departments focus resources on this endeavor as well as the ongoing administration and maintenance of their documents in PolicyStat. This is an important institutional initiative that will facilitate improved safety, accountability and staff engagement.
Not sure if this affects your area? Please contact the PolicyStat Implementation team — they will be happy to provide clarification specific to your area.
If you have questions or need additional help, you can also email the team at MichiganMedicinePolicyStat@med.umich.edu.
