San Diego, CA (Vocus) March 26, 2009 -- SmartDraw.com, maker of SmartDraw, the software that helps you work smarter by communicating visually, is becoming the software tool of choice for healthcare systems looking to visually document and standardize processes across hospital departments in order to meet regulatory requirements.

More than 1,400 hospitals and healthcare systems in the U.S. depend on SmartDraw’s flowcharts and organizational charting functionality to:

  • Simplify, clarify and standardize healthcare processes
  • Efficiently and effectively document an organizational structure
  • Prepare and educate staff for surprise compliance inspections
  • Improve compliance with regulatory bodies and accreditation programs

SmartDraw enables anyone from the IT department to nursing to translate complex processes into compelling, professional-quality process flows, organizational charts, and other diagrams in minutes and without any special training. Visual processes are more easily remembered and understood by others. In fact, studies have shown that people remember 10% of what they hear, 20% of what they read, and fully 80% of what they see and do.

“We’ve seen a tremendous increase in the number of hospitals using SmartDraw to document processes and organizational hierarchies so that they’re ready when a surveyor visits,” said Paul Stannard, CEO of SmartDraw.com. “SmartDraw-created processes are easier to communicate to the surveyor, easier to communicate to staff, and easier for management to review for better decision making.”

SmartDraw.com customers using its software to document processes include, among others:

  • Brigham & Women’s Hospital
  • Cleveland Clinic
  • Johns Hopkins University Hospital
  • Mayo Clinic
  • Universal Health Care Services

SmartDraw works seamlessly with Microsoft Office, allowing one-click export to MS PowerPoint®, Word®, Excel® and other applications, making it easy to share graphics with others in plans, reports, and presentations.

SmartDraw (www.smartdraw.com) includes templates for flowcharting and many other business processes.
