HFMA further states, “effective policy management begins with a document outlining the policy-development process.This document must describe how and by whom policies are drafted, how review by affected stakeholders is achieved, and who has authority for final approval. It must outline who is responsible for communication and education, how policies are maintained and periodically reviewed, and how accessibility is assured”.
