A business case for a clinician's collaboration platform
Clinical leadership in Australia and engagement across all levels of the health system, from local to national, are seen as a critical component to deliver reforms that will alleviate the pressures of 21st century health care.
To achieve its aims for enhancing collaboration, the National Lead Clinicians Group, through the Department of Health, engaged ZXM to describe the case to build an online, collaboration platform.
ZXM engaged with stakeholders over a two-week period and then described and costed a solution that comprised the following five major functional areas:
|Short-form articles||Enable clinical best practice to be proposed in detail with the invitation to review and comment|
|Threaded discussions||Enabling multi-way discussions between clinicians regarding complex issues|
|News, events & polls||Providing the capability to disseminate news and quickly ascertain the mood of clinicians on a specific issue|
|Hyper customisation||Enabling clinicians to see information that aligns with their needs rather than a one-size fits all view|
|Trusted partners content||Enabling content to be pulled from vetted content providers to provide news, events and content that supplement informtion within the collaboration platform|
Within a few short weeks, ZXM developed a comprehensive, costed business case for a 21st century, collaboration platform, outlining implementation methods, resources needed, technology recommendations and project risk. This enabled the Department of Health to engage the market and quickly deliver a much needed support capability to their National Clinicians Network.
