"The response to version 1 of the Policy Manager has been overwhelming. More than 50 new facilities have adopted it in the last six months alone", stated Steve Johnsen, CEO of MCN Healthcare. "By rolling out version 2.0, we are continuing to delight our customers with innovative new features that make their jobs easier. We have taken one of the most easy-to-use platforms and made it even more intuitive, with a redesigned user interface and a streamlined wizard for defining approval processes. Version 2 also includes advanced reporting features, new authentication tools, and detailed user logs to ensure compliance."

The system also automates the entire process of reviewing, revising, approving and archiving policies and procedures, with tools developed specifically for health care's unique work flow. ellucid Policy Manager is offered as a hosted solution, with MCN providing all of the application support and maintenance, and requires no IT resources from the client health care organisation.
