BookWise Solutions has announced the launch of a new software application designed to improve the management of doctors in training at trusts across the UK and further afield.

StudyWise has been designed to improve transparency and provide access to real-time information concerning the doctor’s request for study leave and the authorisation workflow along the way.

The platform also allows staff members to see what areas of training each individual doctor has previously undertaken, which can then be considered when authorising requests for future training.

The application, which can be accessed via smartphone or tablet, allows instant access to a bank of information, from photo IDs to employment contracts and leave entitlement.

Using the app will also reduce the use of emails and telephone calls between members of staff, reducing admin tasks and increasing the time spent with patients.

Financial information and management reports can also be generated using StudyWise, which is compatible with iOS and Android platforms, to help achieve business goals for the trust.

Technical director of BookWise Solutions, Lee Copestake, said: “It has been well documented that medical staff across the UK are becoming increasingly stretched, with junior doctors at the forefront of this.

“There has never been a more-important time for facilities across the NHS and private sector to utilise technology to improve administrative practises and reduce the chance of potential human error.

“StudyWise can be accessed from outside of the facility, providing full transparency for all users which is critical for doctors.”

BookWise Solutions has also revealed its latest room scheduling system, BookWise Elements.

The platform allows users to easily manage meeting and training rooms and other resources instantly, with staff being able to easily view availability and communicate effectively when requesting and reserving these resources.
