Cheshire & Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Cumbria Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) are pleased to announce the successful progression of the Medify delivered e-knowledge project to the next stage of roll out.
The pilot phase of the e-learning initiative began in June, involving staff in GP surgeries, hospitals and Primary Care Trusts from across all three SHA regions and has steadily progressed to the next important roll out stage of the project.
Successful completion of the initial stages involved the integration of the three SHAsÂ educational content into the full architecture of the Medify e-learning platform; including the automated statistical management and communication suites, MedifyStats and MedifyAlert.
MedifyStats provides full statistical measurement, management and reporting of all educational achievement to the specification of the three SHAs through the medify.com dynamic database. MedifyAlert will provide governanced communication, for both educational and non-educational purposes, through the medify.com site and MedifyMobile applications ensure there will be audited regular contact and messaging to all individuals involved.
Under the terms of this next stage of the agreement Medify will provide 250 user licenses for the e-learning application and educational suite for individuals from across the three SHAs for final in-field assessment.
Neil Large, Director of Finance and I.T at Cheshire and Merseyside SHA explained: ÂI am pleased at the progress made by the team and looking forward to the feedback from the expanded numbers of individuals now able to use the product. The benefits that are being delivered are not only in terms of access to useable accredited education, but equally as important, the fact that communication and support can be facilitated and coordinated through the platform. This is a real step forward in utilizing new technology to modernize and improve the healthcare system.Â
Commenting on the announcement Jonathan Bryant, founder and CEO of Medify Solutions, said: ÂThe decision to increase the number of individuals who will now have access to MedifyÂs educational portfolio is very encouraging and demonstrates the value and benefits of our products. One of MedifyÂs key objectives is to provide easier access and accredited education for the benefit of healthcare professionals and in so doing benefit the NHS. Our partnership and collaboration with the three SHAs is helping to deliver a bold vision of e-knowledge across a wide healthcare community.Â
This early test contract is an important step for Medify and clearly demonstrates the potential for the new e-knowledge platform, which is targeted at the NHSÂs national training program; estimated to cost currently around Â£4billion annually. Furthermore the project proves that corporate governance can be delivered in an e-knowledge environment creating a paperless professional environment. With more and more SHAs and PCTs looking for savings and efficiency gains MedifyÂs solution offers a positive and highly cost effective way of delivering and monitoring e-knowledge to healthcare professionals.
Competitively priced the new service can be accessed from as little as Â£15 per month for use on a mobile device; this cost will often be a small add on to an existing mobile phone charge.
