“We need new thinking and new action if we are truly to do something different in health care” was the statement made by Tony Young, theNHSNational Clinical Director for Innovation at the Wired Health event in April 2015. New thinking and new action in health care is something that has been discussed and implemented in recent years, yet Young is not a man to do things by halves and believes there is the potential to build what amounts to a mini Silicon Valley within the bureaucracy of the NHS.
TheNHSis a national treasure but also a tenfold challenge and one where risks cannot be afforded.NHSEngland sees one million patients every 36 hours and it employs over 1.4 million people. Innovation at scale is needed within the complex, unified, enormous system that is theNHS. And with clear outcomes defined through reports such as the Francis Inquiry, the road could not be clearer in terms of where we need to improve.
Adopting WorkPAL into your organisation is an opportunity to create a modern working model – rather than just adopting an academic study of how to run an organisation. Through working in partnership with us and your staff you will quickly have defined criteria everyone understands that deal with Values, Behaviours, Objectives and Supported Learning.
WorkPAL is bespoke to your organisation, illuminating priority areas to managers so they can either avoid problems, or realise opportunities. And when the technology is placed into the hands of the right leaders it has the potential to improve whole departments quickly – giving them the opportunity to use the data now at their fingertips to reach effective workforce solutions. WorkPAL enables smarter communication within your organisation, fostering a community effort behind aligned Values, Goals and Priorities in a measured and monitored way.
Finally, the WorkPAL approach and platform has been proven to work through an independent academic study authored by Manchester Metropolitan University who looked at WorkPAL in 7 largeNHSTrusts across different disciplines (Acute, Mental Health, Community, Specialty etc).
The plain truth is digital disruption is happening across almost every industry with many being reshaped by digital technology. Those who aren’t are being left behind. Whilst not strictly a business the NHS, and most importantly its patients, can still reap the benefits the use of technology can deliver as it collects and analyses data every step of the way to build a high performance culture.
We’d be very happy to talk to you further about how WorkPAL could help you and your unique challenges…
