Today, many hospitals are literally wasting money by not using technology to leverage their internal communications. When you think of the Intranet, do you think of something stale, ugly, and unused by your employees? A modern intranet can streamline communication, create employee engagement, and add organization to your hospital's workflow. Compliance worries will be mitigated and your work life will never be forever changed with automated approvals and reviews of contracts, policies, and documents.
This webinar will discuss the specifics on how to go about policy and procedure software implementation. The typical system implementation process steps and the benefits of policy and procedure workflow automation. We will also cover features that hospitals and healthcare organizations need to automate the process of managing policies and procedures.
A social intranet promotes employee engagement by offering tools that foster peer-to-peer collaboration and employee participation on the intranet. This can help to enhance and support employee culture, your hospital values, mission statement, and annual hospital goals.

As managers, Imposing a wellness initiative on your employees is doing something “to” them. Inviting your employees to voluntarily participate in an employee-driven initiative that will help them reduce some of the daily stressors in their lives and improve the health and well-being of themselves and their families, is doing something “for” them.
The days of looking at an internal communication hub as merely a luxury are long gone. While easy, quick access to pertinent information is becoming a standard in our personal lives, having this same type of urgency and accessibility in a professional, hospital environment is equally, if not more, important. As Community Hospital (McCook, NE) has discovered, implementing an intranet is a perfect way to do this! Whether you’re starting from scratch, coming from a home-grown intranet, or switching intranet vendors, implementing a new intranet may seem like a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be! It’s not as intimidating as you may think.

Hospitals' IT departments are notoriously overloaded, making "work smarter, not harder" a very appropriate mantra. With meaningful use, new clinical systems, and ICD-10 approaching, most hospital IT departments are routinely stretched beyond capacity to just do the essentials. This leaves little time to manage systems such as an intranet.
