First-ever mobile learning platform for hospitals in India

Bangalore, Jan 28 (UNI) Impelsys Inc, the world's leader in online content and learning solutions enters India with iPC Health, an end-to-end mobile learning and upskilling solution for the healthcare sector.
The mobile-first platform brings a much-awaited solution to impart 'on-the-go' training and education for hospital staff and in turn, deliver better outcomes and save lives.

The platform was unveilled on Tuesday, in presence of Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Ashwath Narayan CN, Impelsys CEO Sameer Shariff and Phil Smithers, Global Sales & Marketing Head, Royal College of Nursing (RCNi).
The dignitaries collectively acknowledged and stressed upon the need for a systematic multi-level learning approach that can improve the way healthcare is delivered in the country today.

iPC Health is a first-ever advanced and comprehensive learning interface that will offer certified 'anytime anywhere' education programmes, rendering upskilling, advanced learning and compliance training for healthcare professionals in India.
The solution hosts multiple digitised courses curated by knowledge partners and noted domain experts from across the world, such as RCNi, American Heart Association, Wolters Kluwer and many other leading medical education publishers.
Introducing iPC Health, CEO Impelsys Sameer Shariff said, ''In India, skill development and access to quality healthcare clearly are the two areas of improvement.
''iPC Health is curated to bridge the skill gap and ensure standardisation across the healthcare sector in the country. Our aim is to enhance learning and professional expertise of healthcare personnel and help hospitals manage their greatest assets-their people effectively.
''This will, in turn, create an impact by improving the quality standards of healthcare services in the country,'' he added.

A qualitative research 'The State of Skills in the Indian Healthcare Industry,' undertaken by the IQVIA, highlighted current need gaps in the learning and development arena across the healthcare industry.
The research undertaken across leading 20 hospitals in the country indicated that the work force is open to invest time in receiving on-the-job training, but lacks understanding of it's impact. They do not have access to reliable content, effective trainers and are overwhelmed with their work load currently.
''Today, we have the best of the infrastructure, technology and clinical expertise a country could have. But, standardising 'delivery of care' is a huge challenge we face. We are grappling with a skill set that can deliver first aid, critical care in ambulances and operate world-class equipment.
''The industry needs a systematic approach to train work force and hone their skills and a product like iPC Health can be instrumental in bridging this gap,'' said Mr Narayan.
According to Mr Shariff, iPC Health, which focuses on spreading knowledge through technology, brings forth specific learning modules for every healthcare professional, ranging from receptionists, nurses, support staff, lab assistants and ambulance drivers to doctors and medical experts, improving overall quality of healthcare delivery.
''RCNi, a premier provider of innovative and creative information solutions for nursing team, is one of the knowledge partners that curated a robust learning and assessment module for nurses in India.
''This comes in with an objective to not only enhance their skills, but also provide them an opportunity to carve out a professional learning curve for themselves,'' he added.
''Nurses are directly involved in almost all aspects of hospital care. But, the industry-academia gap in the sector is huge and most of the under-graduate nurses joining the profession are not immediately employable. Solutions that can address this gap at the hospital level is the need of the hour,'' said Dr Naresh Shetty, President MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital.
Apart from education, iPC Health will offer induction, compliance, emergency medical services as well as soft skill training modules.
The platform will enable hospitals to manage their learning and development more effectively through a comprehensive learning management system, including content management tools, reporting dashboards and assessment modules.
Healthcare organisations can leverage the learning platform to educate, analyse the progress and enhance employee-specific career goals.

The platform is now ready for organisations, including corporate hospitals, speciality hospitals, small-scale independent hospitals, nursing homes and clinics, aiming to improve the overall quality of healthcare delivery.
