Impelsys Inc brings forth iPC Health in India to standardise healthcare delivery
Focused on continuous education and talent management, iPC Health is an e-learning platform to standardise healthcare delivery across the country
Impelsys Inc has entered 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. Those present during the unveilling included CN Ashwath Narayan, Deputy Chief Minister, Karnataka; Sameer Shariff, CEO, Impelsys and Phil Smithers, Global Sales and Marketing Head, Royal College of Nursing (RCNi), among other dignitaries from the healthcare industry, who collectively acknowledged and stressed upon the need of 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, Impelsys CEO 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.”
A qualitative research ‘The State of Skills in the Indian Healthcare Industry’ undertaken by 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 workforce is open to invest time in receiving on-the-job training but lacks an understanding of its 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, operate world-class equipment, etc. The industry needs a systematic approach to train workforce and hone their skills and a product like iPC Health can be instrumental in bridging this gap,” said Narayan.
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.
