Allocate expands software portfolio with acquisition of Enterprise Study

PRESS RELEASE

3rd September 2019

Allocate expands software portfolio with acquisition of Enterprise Study

Learning and development functionality will drive staff retention, patient safety and a seamless experience for workers

3rd September 2019: The Allocate Software group has today announced the acquisition of UK based Enterprise Study Ltd, a Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) company offering Learning Management Systems and an online training marketplace. This latest addition to the group demonstrates Allocate’s continuing focus on extending their Human Capital Management offering, and is the company’s third acquisition in the past year, following the acquisitions of 247Time and Wambiz in late 2018.

Recruitment and retention of highly skilled workforces is one of the biggest challenges facing health and care organisations globally, as they seek to deliver better care to patients within resource-constrained environments. This acquisition will allow Allocate to integrate Enterprise Study’s solutions into its own workforce management portfolio. The result will enable organisations to better support and deploy their workforces, as well as facilitate higher patient safety standards through compliance with statutory and mandatory requirements.

Enterprise Study has worked with NHS organisations and care providers in the UK for over 10 years, and has a track record in other skilled, regulated, and safety-focused industries, including the energy sector, which face common challenges of building and retaining skilled workforces.

Nick Wilson, CEO of the Allocate Software group, said: “Staff recruitment and retention are arguably one of the biggest issues facing many organisations today, and this is especially the case in the health and care sectors. We recognise the close link between both the requirements of mandatory training and the wider benefits of supportive career development, and with how people are managed and rostered.”

“Bringing Enterprise Study into the Allocate family is an exciting opportunity for us to push the boundaries of a seamless experience for healthcare workers. It also helps us to support our customers in offering their staff a more rewarding and satisfying career. Allocate is leading the way in creating a range of integrated software solutions to help manage all aspects of an employee’s working life, and to help our customers to build enduring relationships between their organisations and their people.”

Shona Blackhall, CEO of Enterprise Study, commented: “We know that learning and development is critical when looking at how to use resources more effectively. As a British business, we have a strong track record for our software in the learning and technology space. We are excited to have this opportunity to take our product to the next level, with a new focus and further investment from a company that shares the same values and vision as our own.”

Patchwork and Allocate team up to deliver interoperability for NHS staffing

19th August 2019: London, UK – Two workforce software innovators – Allocate Software and Patchwork – have announced a partnership to provide interoperability between their two solutions. Patchwork’s specialist temporary staffing technology will now integrate with Allocate’s HealthMedics rostering solution, helping healthcare providers staff their wards more effectively whilst reducing agency spend.

The collaboration offers healthcare organisations choice. Combined Patchwork and Allocate customers can access connected workforce management systems for doctors, automate a wide range of recruitment and staffing tasks, remove double-data entry, and safeguard the quality of shift bookings to ensure that safety rules are adhered to at all times. This will enable administrative teams to minimise time spent on repetitive tasks and offer a safer, more efficient experience for clinicians.

This new partnership is part of Allocate’s Connect partner programme, designed to boost the interoperability of workforce systems in the health and care sectors globally. Connect is the first of its kind to bring together technology providers to tackle this issue.

For Patchwork, this collaboration forms part of their mission to offer fit-for-purpose technologies to NHS Trusts, helping them save millions in staffing fees and enabling clinicians to access shifts in a flexible, responsive way.

Nick Wilson, CEO at Allocate Software, comments:

“Our vision is to be a platform of choice for forward-thinking, people-focused organisations. Our technology provides the backbone to enable innovation from like-minded technology companies that share our values, such as Patchwork.  Working in partnership with cutting-edge companies, we will deliver this much-needed interoperability, which is central to our goals at Allocate.

By partnering with Patchwork, we are addressing the appetite of healthcare organisations looking for choice and we look forward to the exciting results we will achieve together. Allocate Connect proactively supports calls for greater interoperability – critical to safeguarding the safety and efficiency of the healthcare sector – by creating an ecosystem of innovative technology partners that celebrate close supportable interfaces as we do.”

Tom Simons, Director of Workforce and People, Chelsea and Westminster, comments:

“I am absolutely thrilled that Allocate is partnering with Patchwork – an exciting and innovative temporary staffing solution that is revolutionising flexible working in the NHS.  The partnership is a huge step forward for Trusts who want interoperable systems and streamlined, safe staffing solutions, and we very much look forward to working with both software providers.”

Anas Nader, CEO at Patchwork comments:

“Our team at Patchwork is on a mission to revolutionise temporary staffing in healthcare.  By connecting NHS organisations directly with a growing pool of healthcare workers, we’re reducing the reliance on locum agencies and helping organisations achieve three key objectives – save money, free up time and improve patient safety.

We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Allocate, the leading rostering solution for healthcare, which will help further streamline processes for our NHS partners and amplify Patchwork’s efforts to transform what it means to truly work flexibly in the NHS.”

New UK and Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board created to guide and influence leading workforce optimisation software provider

By | News

PRESS RELEASE

19th July 2019

New UK and Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board created to guide and influence leading workforce optimisation software provider
Allocate creates new advisory board to help shape innovation and service

Allocate Software has created a new advisory board, including members from key stakeholders in the healthcare industry as well as its own customers. Given the NHS’s priorities around ensuring that technology interoperability can drive efficiencies to free up the workforce to spend more time on and improve patient care, the UK & Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board will work closely with the Allocate leadership team to ensure further innovation.  It will focus on how Allocate’s software platform can best support healthcare organisations as they manage the demand for more care in the context of the 20% global shortage of healthcare workers[1]. The board is chaired by Sir Andrew Cash, OBE, and led from Allocate by its CEO, Nick Wilson.

The inaugural meeting of the board took place last month, discussing topics such as safe staffing in the context workforce shortages, technology innovation and interoperability. The next meeting will take place in October.

One of the main goals of the UK & Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board is to steer Allocate’s direction of technology innovation to deliver on its commitment to work in partnership with healthcare organisations and stakeholders. With the global workforce crisis continuing to dominate the industry’s agenda, gaining feedback and acting upon agreed priorities will help unlock the potential that technology solutions can deliver.

“Bringing together informed and experienced representatives from our industry, who live and breathe the challenges of the global workforce crisis every day, and who also have an understanding of Government policy too, is an important step forward. We need to ensure technology works hand-in-hand with the industry so that it invests in the right developments to deliver a step-change in the way technology can positively impact care delivery. I’m delighted to see the proactive approach that Allocate is taking, especially with challenges such as interoperability, which has the potential to have a profound impact on staffing issues in our sector,” comments Sir Andrew Cash, OBE, chair of the UK & Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board.

“We are proud of the progress that has been made within the healthcare sector around its use of our digital workforce management tools. We strive to support healthcare professions to deliver the best patient care, whilst ensuring the fair and flexible treatment of staff. But there is still a long way to go to ensure all staff groups benefit from these innovations, and that organisations can be assured of access to the best possible systems. For me, the top of the agenda is further interoperability and innovation – so that healthcare professionals gain control and choice from a connected view of workforce management and patient care. The insight from the advisory board members is critical is giving us the unique understanding into the needs of the sector and to steer the direction of our technology investment to the right places,” comments Nick Wilson, CEO at Allocate Software.

In addition to the UK & Ireland Healthcare Advisory Board, Allocate also runs a National User Group Steering Committee, which is impartial and is representative of the customer base across all healthcare sectors; Acute, Primary Care, Mental Health, Ambulance and the Private Healthcare sector. The group, which is chaired by Michael Brown – the former Chair of the Royal College of Nursing Council – meets throughout the year to support the regional user groups that meet regularly and allows users to create a network of local organisations to share ideas and best practice to help them to get the most out of Allocate solutions.

Members of the Healthcare Advisory Board are as follows:

  • Sir Andrew Cash, CEO, Sheffield Teaching Hospital’s NHS Foundation Trust and former Chair of the Shelford Group
  • Paul Stefanoski, Director of Finance and Business, West London Mental Health NHS Trust
  • Professor David Foster OBE, Non-Executive Director, Queens Nursing Institute
  • Anne Cooper, Non-Executive Director, Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, Ex Chief Nurse NHS Digital
  • Stephen Dorrell, Chair, NHS Confederation and owner of the Dorson Group
  • Sam Foster, Chief Nurse, Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Anne Drake, Director of Nursing, Letterkenny University Hospital, Ireland
  • Andy Haynes, Executive Medical Director, Sherwood Forest NHS Foundation Trust
  • Nick Wilson, CEO, Allocate
  • Hugh Ashley, Managing Director, UK & Ireland, Allocate
  • Paul Scandrett, International Director of Healthcare, Allocate
  • Lyn McIntyre MBE, UK Director of Healthcare, Allocate

18 NHS trusts join Allocate’s latest workforce improvement programme

By | News

PRESS RELEASE

29th May 2019

18 NHS trusts join Allocate’s latest workforce improvement programme
Unlocking accelerated results in e-rostering doctors

18 NHS trusts have signed up to the latest 90-day rapid workforce improvement programme designed by Allocate, which will accelerate the roll-out and positive impact of its popular e-rostering and e-Job Planning software in addressing fair and effective deployment of doctors.

 

The launch of Collaborative Accelerator aims to share best practice in e-rostering and support customer efforts in moving up the Levels of Attainment for e-rostering and job planning. With 21 different workstreams, the activity falls into four critical staffing areas:

  • the roll-out of e-rostering with junior doctor, supporting fair rostering to address burn-out and improve retention
  • better management of locum shifts via LocumOnDuty, supporting a drive to reduce spend on locums and safeguard quality
  • self-rostering, for doctors around work / life balance
  • dynamic activity-based rostering, looking holistically at real-time allocation of people and multi-disciplinary teams based on defined patient care requirements including theatre sessions and clinics

 

The Allocate Collaborative Accelerator is a customer programme designed to support current NHS policy, including the Long Term Plan and the health service’s aim of improving the availability and deployment of the clinical workforce, further reducing spend on bank and agency staff.

 

 

During the programme, each of the trusts sign up to specific objectives. The trusts in each stream work to a shared approach and goals, to help them realise their objectives and make monitoring and measuring improvement easy.

 

Hugh Ashley, Managing Director of Allocate UK and Ireland, said: “The NHS is rightly focused on ensuring the effective deployment of the clinical workforce to help staff deliver the best possible patient care, fairly, safely and efficiently. Through launching the Collaborative Accelerator programme, we will help to fast-track the progress of each trust and exploit the potential of what can be achieved clinically by using software effectively to solve complex workforce deployment challenges.

 

“By providing a framework of learning and best practice, teams can gain a fresh perspective on what they want to achieve by using the software along with its workforce data insights. Whether this is looking at how to change associated processes and working habits to ensure our software is used to its full potential, it is ultimately around helping our NHS customers deliver the best patient care.”

 

Western Sussex Hospital HNS Foundation Trust is moving ahead with its Junior Doctor Rostering Programme as part of the Collaborative Accelerator Programme:

“The support we’ve received from Allocate has been pivotal to the progress we’ve made with our junior doctor rostering plans since starting the Accelerator Programme earlier this year. The level of technical expertise that Allocate has provided has bolstered the team’s confidence, guiding them in the best approach with the rostering software and assuring them that they are doing things properly. This is critical when considering the safety and compliance aspects with junior doctors’ contracts and work levels. This has meant they have felt empowered to move ahead with pace and delivered our go-live of the medical rostering on time, one of our key goals of our programme with Allocate,” said Gemma Leach, Head of Workforce Systems at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

 

Martin Elliott Chief Medical Officer at Allocate, comments: “No matter how good a technical solution is, it is the people on the shop floor who know most about what problems they face locally and how they have or need to adapt processes to meet local challenges. The Allocate Accelerator programme brings Allocate’s team together with a number of organisations all with similar ambitions for the technology. The Allocate team then guide the organisations through a defined process to meet these ambitions, it instils pace and allows users to share experiences to identify and share good practice. Working in this way helps debunks myths about what can and cannot be achieved and I am delighted to see this cohort focusing in self-rostering of doctors and activity-based rostering too.”

 

“It works; I have seen it work and felt privileged to see great practice evolve through partnership and transparency.  We all want to provide the safest and best possible patient care.  Everyone I meet at the Accelerator Programme is fully committed to that and anxious not to waste time in getting improved workforce management and better staff experience to function for that purpose.”

 

Collaborative Accelerator is part of Allocate’s overall ‘Here to Help’ programme, which provides a number of elements that customers can take advantage of. This includes webinars, study days and the Leadership Network. For example, helping its customers understand gaps in their current activities, to meet the new NHS Improvement Standards of Attainment for e-rostering and e-job planning. It also helps provide guidance based on individual workplans and demonstrate the practical approach the campaign is designed to deliver to support customers.
