OnSomble recently signed an agreement with The Ministry of Health for the Government of Antigua and Barbuda and Mount Saint John’s Medical Centre in St. John's, Antigua to orient the public nursing sector of Antigua and Barbuda to the benefits of professional role development and conduct a role assessment of nurses in those nations.
“By measuring the way in which registered nurses view their professional role, we can uncover strengths and development opportunities for nursing staff. These strengths and opportunities translate into specific targets for utilization or improvement that will enhance patient care,” observed Dr. Maria O’Rourke, chief strategy officer and chief nurse executive of OnSomble.
Donald Charles, general manager of the Antigua and Barbuda Development Bank, which has been at the center of numerous efforts to harness innovative ideas and technology that contribute positively to the region’s development is excited about the positive social impact of the relationship with OnSomble. “The work of the Development Bank extends far beyond job creation and economic expansion; we are responsible for the development of all facets of our society,” Charles noted. “Our region’s work with OnSomble will increase understanding of the critical role of nurses in patient care, enhance our nurses’ professional development, and ultimately lead to higher quality patient care,” Charles concluded.
Shawn Mathis, chairman of the OnSomble board of directors, credits Charles as a driving force in creating the partnership. “We have long been acquainted with Don’s work in Antigua and Barbuda, and have the utmost respect for his passion to enhance the region. Our agreement will merge his passion with ours, which is to enhance the quality of care across the globe by developing the core of our healthcare system – professional nurses,” Mr. Mathis said.
Enderson Miranda, vice president of business development for OnSomble, believes the agreement will have benefits for OnSomble and Antigua and Barbuda. “Our work with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda and Mount Saint John’s Medical Centre will allow us to enhance our technology footprint internationally, and begin to address concerns related to quality of healthcare in the Caribbean Region,” Mr. Miranda observed.
