Health tech startups partner to deliver digital learning programmes

Patchwork Health and Medics.Academy have partnered to support those returning to the frontline and newly qualified doctors with digital learning programmes.

Medics.Academy, an online platform to deliver learning programmes is working with Patchwork Health, a company that has digitised and streamlined healthcare staffing. Patchwork Health recently made its digital recruitment platform free, and is being used by many to come out of retirement, and newly qualified doctors to book shifts.

The two health-tech start-ups are now joining their solutions to support professionals returning to work with educational programmes, including modules on managing acutely unwell patients and coping with stresses and trauma of working on the frontline.

The programme is built around a library of peer reviewed interactive courses tailored to Foundation Doctors.

Dr Anas Nadar, CEO of Patchwork Health “We believe that no doctor should feel uncomfortable or unable to return to service owing to an inability to access the correct training on demand, which is why we are working with Medics.Academy to ensure that our service users are offered the very best CPD.”

Dr Johann Malawana CEO of Medics.Academy “As soon as the threat from COVID-19 emerged on the horizon, we directed our efforts into developing specialised learning programmes to equip medical professionals for frontline service.”

“We are delighted that our partnership with Patchwork.Health will enable those with the most imperative need to access our educational material – this is an example of inter-organisational collaboration at its most effective.”
