NextSteps, NetDimensions’ global users conference, gave us the chance to hear from Nigel Willson, Global Strategist at Microsoft. He told us about the vast potential of AI in learning.
The rapid rate of change in business and technologies is exponential. When you use technology, the level of acceleration increases even more – leading to unprecedented change.
Keeping workforces compliant with legislation is a major challenge in the pharmaceutical industry – and failing to do so can be extremely risky. With a seamless integration of NetDimensions technology, one market leader’s L&D team ensured they could face compliance risk and meet the demands of regulators such as FDA and EMA.
The ability to manage compliance risk is expected to become more crucial than ever in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector by 2020 .
Businesses need to protect themselves from the heavy costs of non-compliance. A culture of quality is crucial to reducing and eliminating exposure to risks including financial penalties, rescinded regulatory approvals and reputational damage.
Patients being treated in hospitals, clinics and specialist facilities expect the highest possible standards of care from medical providers. As a global provider with a long-established reputation for clinical excellence, one healthcare company was spending hundreds of millions of pounds each year upskilling its staff and expanding its technology.
This investment supported a worldwide team of around 8,500 people, including doctors, nurses and a broad range of administrative and technical staff. The training needs of this workforce were varied and sometimes complex.
The ability to meticulously assess and improve learning programmes and staff knowledge across a network of hundreds of workplaces in different countries was a key part of the organization’s growth ambitions.
Transforming systems and creating a powerful healthcare learning ecosystem
Between 2015 and 2016, the healthcare company embarked upon a complete overhaul of its HR IT systems. It had been working with several different platforms, including an HR interface and middleware, all of which needed to be united in a best of breed Learning Management System (LMS) with a compliance focus.
Ongoing, rigorous auditing is a critical challenge for healthcare providers. Audits are carried out on a frequent basis to ensure that companies in the healthcare sector are fully compliant and provide a quality of care that meets industry standards at every level of their organization.
