The PolicyMedical Story
PolicyMedical was founded in 1999 by its current CEO, Saud Juman. Born from Saud’s insight that most processes in hospital document management can be automated, PolicyMedical emerged as company that is today: the developer of PolicyManager™, the leading healthcare policy management software.
PolicyMedical’s team believes that a policy management system should be simple, user-friendly, and specifically tailored to the needs of hospitals, and long term healthcare facilities so that it may allow healthcare workers to focus more time on patient care, and less time on administrative tasks. This is how PolicyMedical has grown over the years into the most recognized and respected name in healthcare policy management solutions.
Policy’s Core Values
At PolicyMedical, staff is committed to key priorities, and it is the driving force behind everything the company aims to achieve:
The company’s flagship software, PolicyManager™, is the leading policy management solution for healthcare organizations, and has been supporting the policy and procedure management, risk and compliance, and accreditation efforts of healthcare providers for over a decade.
PolicyManager™ was designed to enable healthcare organizations to create, maintain, revise, approve and archive their policies to support accreditation compliance activities in a cost effective manner. This allows healthcare professionals tasked with these responsibilities to concentrate on the activities that bring greater value to the organization.
Contracts Manager helps ensure that an organization’s contracts significantly contribute to cost and risk reduction, improved control, and an increase in revenue. It provides the ability to quickly create or import contracts, manage them, and store them securely where they can be searched, analyzed and organized.
It helps manage the security and compliance risk of Business Associates and Vendors with the only comprehensive oversight and monitoring tool in the marketplace today.
Having served over 1500 clients, PolicyMedical understands the specific needs and strategies that hospitals and long term care institutions have to operate efficiently with policies data information. Some of the company’s clients are Baylor Health System, Mountain States Health Alliance, Cox Health, Premise Health, North Country Hospital Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Baptist Health System, Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority, MarianHill, BetterLiving, etc.
“We were struggling with using SharePoint as a document retention tool. And when I say struggling, we were really struggling with that. And so we sought out other solutions and PolicyMedical’s Policy Manager is the one we opted for.” – Bradley Koehl, Manager Patient Safety and Risk Management, Premise Health
“Prior to PolicyManager™, we were using our SharePoint site. I think we needed a change to make things more user-friendly. Also, there was no report capability, so that was another issue we had.” – Nora Hodge & Carmen Dozal, Baptist Health System
