Policies Website Retiring on June 24, 2024

Dear UConn Health Departments,

Policy Manager, uconn.ellucid.com, has been live since October 2023 and has since become the official source for all policies and standards documents at UConn Health. Our migration efforts have been ongoing, and we are now ready to decommission the old UConn Health policy site, health.uconn.edu/policies.

As a reminder, Policy Manager offers a centralized, accessible, and comprehensive repository for policies and standards documents such as procedures, guidelines, and protocols. It provides robust search functionality, ensuring that our workforce can easily access the most current standards.

As part of this transition, we will be decommissioning the old UConn Health policy site. Starting June 24, 2024, the site will auto-redirect to Policy Manager. It is important to note that the redirect on the policy site will not lead users to specific documents. However, this is no longer necessary as Policy Manager allows users to favorite and follow documents for easy access. We kindly request all departments to remove UConn Health policy site links from their websites by June 24, 2024.

Additionally, because Policy Manager is an internal platform, departments must identify any documents that must be accessible to the public. The Policy team will generate public links for these documents and host them in a public-facing Policy Manager folder (i.e., “facility”) accessible to visitors and guests. Please communicate any public-facing documents to the Policy Team by June 17 if you have not already.

To ensure a smooth transition, the Policy team is working closely with the Health Marketing web team. An initial cross-check of all documents on the policy site has been conducted to help ensure their availability on Policy Manager.

We appreciate your participation in this important change. Should you have any questions or need assistance, please reach out to the Policy team at policy@uchc.edu.

As of October 1, Policy Manager is live and can be accessed by the UConn Health workforce after the required training is completed. Please visit uconn.ellucid.com to access Policy Manager.

Note: All active Clinical policies and standards documents, as well as Administrative policies and standards documents that have routed through the Administrative Policy Committee, are accessible in the Policy Manager system. Additional Administrative, Research, and Academic policies and standards documents will continue to be added into the system after the October 1, 2023 soft launch. For questions, please contact policy@uchc.edu.

Welcome to UConn Health’s Policy website. Here you will find official UConn Health policies that govern the daily activities of our faculty, staff and the UConn Health community. Policies can be searched by specific areas above or alphabetically. The website also provides resource quick links. The Office of Faculty Affairs is available for assistance with questions on any of the policies listed here at 860-679-2413.

Please note, violations of UConn Health policies may be cause for disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. A supervisor’s failure to enforce a policy does not excuse an employee from complying with it, nor does it prevent UConn Health form taking disciplinary action thereafter.

While every effort has been made to address the many related issues and ensure the accuracy of the manual, it is recognized that it may not be all-inclusive and does not constitute a legal document or contract. Management will continually revise these policies and communicate changes through normal channels. Advance notice may not always be possible. UConn Health reserves the right to manage UConn Health issues that may or may not be addressed in this manual.
