Empower believes that clinical lab administrations are a crucial segment for ensuring accurate patient outcomes. It is vital to develop relationships with various laboratory organizations to develop various laboratory courses through which Empower can contribute to an adequate healthcare workforce capacity building in laboratory services to meet the increasing demands.
Recently, Empower and African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM) formed a collaboration by signing an MoU to jointly explore the partnership in the area of capacity building in the clinical laboratory diagnostic sector.
Empower can also support in adapting and accelerating its market uptake in LMICs through:
Medical Diagnostic Training Platform
New Health Technologies
Empower supports manufacturers and MOH for large scale introduction, adoption, and uptake of new technologies through digital learning including development and deployment training of health staff both at the private and public sector on using TrueNat machine and Molbio Diagnostics for TB testing; development of training materials for donors, ministry of health, regulatory agency, TB program staff, procurement, and supply chain staff, private sector on Quantiferon product for TB supply chain and others.
Some of the examples include:
Empower has worked with MoH Ghana and ADP Partners to deliver continuous, on-the-job learning at a large-scale.
To implement the platform, Empower with support from INSEAD Humanitarian Research Group, has developed the Ghana Supply Chain Digital Learning Platform (the “BIG Learning Platform”), which is a 4-part integrated learning solution that leads to long-term institutional memory in Procurement and Supply Chain. The Platform is country-specific and country-managed, and delivers on-line access to a blended, adult-based, learning approach; with the following features:
The platform is supplemented with webinars and an in-classroom workshop to launch the activities. The project is currently being implemented in Ghana and several of these features have already been deployed.
