“Switching to a digital board portal has really increased the efficiency of our organisation.’’ – Alison Gittins, Head of Corporate & Partnership Governance at Hywel Dda University Health Board.
Providing healthcare to remote sites across certain areas in Wales, demands for a lot of efficiency and flexibility. In order to improve these aspects, Hywel Dda University Health Board, decided to implement iBabs board portal into their organisation. By doing this, they are now able to provide their healthcare services even more adequate.
Accessibility in remote areas
Hywel Dda University Health Board provides healthcare services to a total population of around 384,000 throughout Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire in Wales. It provides Acute, Primary, Community, Mental Health and Learning Disabilities services via General and Community Hospitals, Health Centres, GPs, Dentists, Pharmacists and Optometrists and other sites.
These sites are often situated within remote areas, which means that staff members have to be flexible and able to access certain documents and meetings everywhere.
Following a tendering exercise that completed at the end of August 2017 Hywel Dda chose iBabs and went live 7 weeks later in October 2017. Following training sessions provided on-site by iBabs.
“The system is excellent from an Administrators point of view and I’m pleased to say our Board Members have really welcomed the change”, says Alison Gittins, Head of Corporate & Partnership Governance. In no time, the organisation benefitted from implementing the software, providing more effective meetings and an overall more efficient process within the organisation.
“From both the Administrators and Service Users point of view, implementation has been seamless and Service Users in particular have really embraced the move to electronic Board & Committee management. We’ve used it at every Board and Committee meeting since our training and found it works well even at remote community sites.’’
