Launch of How2
HowbeckHow2 is a brand new video resource website dedicated to improving and refreshing the IT skills of those in General Practice. Available to anyone for free during our Beta testing phase, we are keen to get your feedback on what new content would be most useful. The site offers tailored video tutorials exclusively for those working in general practice, which we have packaged into bundles focusing on specific areas. This Beta phase offers a range of bundles including those targeted at Clinicians using EMIS Web; Docman users; All EMIS Web users wanting to configure the software for quicker easier use; EMIS Web Remote consultations and iGPR for example, and we have new bundles due for release shortly on Edenbridge’s Apex software and EMIS Web Protocols.
Our Roadmap already demonstrates a rapid planned expansion of resources which will cover a wide range of different IT systems used in General Practice.
We will continue to work with our local and national contacts to ensure that the resources remain relevant and provide a solution to your Practice learning needs.
Let us know what you think – your feedback and suggestions for content are key to our development plan.
We envisage the Beta phase lasting well into 2020. After Beta is complete we will undertake a general release, at which point our Beta practices will enjoy a further 6 months of free usage.
Our aim is to run the Howbeck How2 site as a Social Enterprise, with the sales income being reinvested into the content and management of the site, and investing profits into projects that improve the take up of technology in Primary Care for the benefit of patients across the UK.
