Medworxx announces Brant Community Healthcare System will use the Medworxx knowledge platform to support patient safety priorities and initiatives



    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Medworxx, the makers of a strategic software
platform that hospitals use to communicate, aggregate, and analyze knowledge,
is pleased to announce that Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) has
joined the ever growing list of customers that rely on the Medworxx platform
to support their knowledge platform. The BCHS will implement the Medworxx
Learning Management System (LMS) for the development and delivery of staff
education, in particular to advance and support their patient safety
initiatives.
    Medworxx' customers use the Learning Management System to support the
ongoing knowledge development of healthcare workers and to have access to the
knowledge they need, when they need it, in order to continuously improve and
provide the highest level of care. It also gives hospitals the ability to
demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements in real-time.
    "BCHS has always had a strong focus on knowledge sharing and promotes a
very positive learning environment", said Joe Buller, Vice President,
Resources & Development, Brant Community Healthcare System. "The Medworxx LMS
empowers our employees to take charge of their professional development.
Taking ownership of the learning environment means course content is developed
within the organization. Managers can deploy department specific education and
tests, having the confidence that all learning activities are being tracked
and recorded. We anticipate that the tool will save us significant time,
improve efficiency, and enhance organization-wide learning, all of which will
contribute towards the improvement of patient safety."
    "The addition of the Brant Community Healthcare System to our family of
customers is tremendous", said Niels Tofting, Vice President Sales, Medworxx.
"BCHS is beginning with a patient safety course and their mandatory review
process; they will be able to automate everything from distributing the course
and reviews, to their collection, marking, and scoring. This is just the first
step; because they have invested in the Medworxx platform, BCHS has the
ability to move beyond their learning environment and look to supporting other
areas of their organization, such as document management."
