According to Sameer Shariff, CEO Impelsys said that 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 standardization 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 work force 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 despite the best of infrastructure, technology and clinical expertise a country could have, 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 work force and hone their skills and a product like iPC Health can be instrumental in bridging this gap,” said Karnataka Deputy CM Ashwath Narayan at the product launch.

Focused on spreading knowledge through technology, iPC Health brings forth specific learning modules for every healthcare professional ranging from receptionists, nurses, support staff, lab assistants and ambulance drivers to doctors and medical experts, improving overall quality of healthcare delivery. RCNi, a premier provider of information solutions for nursing team is one of the knowledge partners that curated a robust learning and assessment module for nurses in India.

“Nurses are directly involved in almost all aspects of hospital care. But, the industry-academia gap in the sector is huge and most of the under-graduate nurses joining the profession are not immediately employable. Solutions that can address this gap at the hospital level is the need of the hour,” said Dr Naresh Shetty, president, MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital.
