Presented by Jeff Potts at Documentation and Training Life Sciences, June 23-26, 2008 in Indianapolis.
Every organization struggles with how to store, tag, and search for their documents. In a hospital corporation, the need is particularly critical. Hospital staff need to be able to quickly find the latest policies and procedures. Auditors need to be able to track who made what changes and when. Lawyers want to know which protocols were in place on a particular date. In this session you’ll learn a practical approach to putting a document management system in place that can help address these needs and reduce your exposure to legal, regulatory, and even human health risks.
Based on lessons learned during a real-world project, the session shows that getting your documents under control doesn’t have to be a multi-year, multi-million dollar effort. The slide deck outlines how a hospital corporation in New England used a “start small and grow” approach to piloting and rolling out a document management solution across the corporation.
