MyMedic is getting ready to hit the road next month by attending the exciting Health and Care Innovation Expo in Manchester. In our latest blog, our chief executive officer, Rob Gorringe, gives us the lowdown on his thoughts about the event.
We have been working really hard over the past year to launch MyMedic, a national network of locums which aims to save the NHS time and money sourcing and managing locum clinicians. This has involved a lot of work behind the scenes on our state-of-the-art system and I am so pleased to say that the sweat and tears have finally paid off and we are ready to shout about what we can offer.
Both me, and my fellow MyMedic founder, Gareth Bennett, are still practicing paramedics and when it comes to locum provision, we have worked on both sides of the fence, at service providers - juggling shifts and locums; at agencies - helping clients find the best locums to suit their needs; and as locums, too. It’s our deep understanding of this market that has led us to create MyMedic, something we are really proud of.
Between our team, we’ve got a wealth of NHS experience, so we know the importance of getting the right person in the right place at the right time. However, the current systems out there are clunky and expensive. We’ve consciously made a move away from the traditional agency model, which brings with it high cost margins and low efficiency. Our online platform uses artificial intelligence (AI) to match registered practitioners to placements that match their qualifications, skills and experience, as well as pre-defined criteria set by the locum including preferred locations of work, their day-to-day availability and holidays.
Equally, the software helps ensure compliance documentation is up to date, with all locums’ documentation stored on the platform and reminders issued when compliance renewal dates are nearing.
So, the next stage of our promotion is to get out and about telling more people in the health and social care sector about what we provide. And in that spirit, we’re off to Manchester Central on 4 and 5 September 2019 for the biggest NHS-led event of the year. Focused on the NHS Long Term Plan, the Health and Care Innovation Expo unites more NHS, local government and social care leaders than any other health and care event.
It’s great to be involved and we’re really excited at the prospect of showing off what we do best!
But not only will be showcasing the benefits of MyMedic, we’ll also be launching a brand-new product to market.
Beebo is a cloud-based tool for most aspects of administering teams. It's based around a core HR module that has all the functions currently on the market as well as other administration functions such as rostering, complaints, incidents, assets, document management, task management and mandatory training. Beebo aims to bring those individual modules under one system to simplify use and bring all of them into the same reporting structure, which gives better and simpler oversight to team managers. The system is very well suited to regulated industries like health and social care, companies going for ISO regulation, training companies, schools, or anyone else in a compliant industry.
We have high hopes and would love to see it become the most used system in community- based health and social care and a popular choice for general business or other industries.
It’s a busy, yet exciting, time here at MyMedic and our message is definitely to watch this space!
