This year, we blogged a lot about accreditation management operations because we see the same issues from organization to organization – disjointed processes leading to manual, timely tasks that slow down the accreditation cycle. Hopefully our past blogs on accreditation management can help guide your organization to a successful and more efficient 2017.
After over 20 years of experience in accreditation, we have been able to talk to a number of organizations who have similar pain points. Whether it’s too many manual processes or disjointed systems, these accreditation bodies all express that they do not have enough time to focus on customer compliance. They are stuck with outdated processes that take up precious time, and, most commonly, they have too much on their plate. Download our new eBook, The Complete Guide to Creating an Efficient Accreditation Organization, to learn the top four critical elements that lead to more efficient operations within your organization resulting in time and resources saved across the board.
Accreditation organizations take on a complicated and costly goal of being the overseer of an industry. Typically, clients are spread out across the nation and require audits regularly, whether it’s on an annual or biennial basis. With all of these moving pieces – deadlines, flights, and schedules – it can be difficult to keep it all straight, let alone efficient.
Oftentimes, public works departments are still using pen and paper for the majority of their inspections. The first step to efficiently conducting public works inspections is conducting these inspections online and collecting the data in real-time. Utilize the underground storage tank and stormwater management inspection templates to start collecting uniform data in your department that can be analyzed and help enhance your preventive maintenance programs while saving your department time and resources.
When we met with AABB to discuss the benefits of an accreditation management system, we had them first tell us, in detail, their laboratory accreditation process. From onboarding a new customer to delivering the official certificate. We brought a representative from each department in to talk about their role in this process, and, at one big table, we walked through the steps.
We are partnering with the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) to implement an accreditation management system that will save their organization, assessors and clients a ton of time. During their 2016 Annual Meeting from October 22-25 our team will be onsite to show off the system debuting in spring 2017.
An effective client portal will help almost every aspect of your accreditation operations, which is why it is such a key element of an accreditation management software platform. It’s important for accreditation organizations to ditch the disjointed spreadsheets, faxes and emails and move their processes online.
