IT healthcare solutions provider Clarity Informatics is looking to grow by launching new e-learning resources for primary care doctors across the UK.
Based on clinical guidance authored by Clarity Informatics for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the new e-learning resources for doctors are the first on the market to be based on the nationally recognised best-practice guidance.
Set to be launched in September, the new resources will be available as an upgrade to GPs using Clarity’s GP Appraisal Toolkit. Clarity Plus will include ten training modules at launch, covering a range of topics.
A further ten modules will then be released on the Clarity Plus portal each month until over 300 of modules have been published. As with Clarity’s Appraisal Toolkit for GPs, users of Clarity Plus will also be able to log on via smartphones and tablets, making resources available ‘on the go’.
CEO of Clarity Informatics, Tim Sewart, said: “The success of our Appraisal Toolkit for GPs, which was launched in 2014 in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners has been a significant boost to Clarity’s growth in recent years and a driving force behind our becoming the leading IT solutions provider for the healthcare sector. With over 85% of GPs in the UK currently using Clarity’s Appraisal Toolkits, we’re always looking for new ways to engage our customers and continue to deliver innovative IT solutions for the healthcare industry that improve patient safety, save clinical time and are cost effective.”
As part of medical revalidation - the process by which doctors positively affirm to the General Medical Council (GMC) that they are up to date and fit to practice - all licensed doctors need to demonstrate their commitment to continuous professional development and participation in annual appraisal.
Sewart continued: “We know that when it comes to appraisal, it can be a challenge for GPs to keep track of and collate evidence of continuing professional development, whilst managing the demands of a clinical workload and a practice. Combining our knowledge of appraisal and revalidation requirements with our expertise as authors of the NICE Clinical Knowledge Summaries service, we’re delighted to be able to offer GPs a convenient and efficient way to manage continuing professional development.
“Given the rigorous quality assurance which underpins the creation of our content, we also hope that the advice and recommendations within the modules can be relied upon as an effective mechanism to support the excellent care provided by GPs across the UK.”
