Policy manuals update under way

As part of VUMC’s ongoing efforts to improve the policy management system, the traditional policy “manuals” (Clinical, Operations, Safety, etc.) are being updated to better reflect the content and governance of the VUMC policies. These manuals, called “Categories” in PolicyTech, will be changed to match the names of the policy-generating committees.

All policies will remain available in PolicyTech throughout this transition. Users seeking assistance with PolicyTech can contact the Office of Healthcare Compliance (615-343-7266), Accreditation & Standards (615-322-1117), or email policytech@vanderbilt.edu. Step-by-step guides for finding a policy are available at The Learning Exchange, keyword search: “policytech.”
