Agency spotlight: Arizona Board of Medicine

Agency Implements Automated Board Meeting Scheduling with GL Suite

The Arizona Board of Medicine implemented GL Suite’s Board Meeting Management business process over 10 years ago.

GL Suite replaced the agency’s arduous, manual process of managing board meetings with an organized and automated system.

The Agency’s board meetings include the review of medical malpractice claims; these claims often include a large number of materials to review, such as X-Rays, medical records and testimony. Board members require the materials in advance for adequate preparation.

Using GL Suite, the Arizona agency plans board meetings well in advance.

Staff run a simple command and GL Suite automatically compiles all board meeting materials in an easy to use format, burned to a DVD and distributed to board members in advance of each meeting. Each meeting occurs in accordance with the agenda, along with witnesses scheduled to appear in a designated order.
