Greater Manchester Smokefree Pregnancy Platform

Health Innovation Manchester (HInM)

Project work on the GM Smokefree Pregnancy platform began with remote workshops during which mock-ups were created for the application’s entire system. The mock-ups served as the basis for what needed to become part of the final solution and helped the Objectivity team to precisely define the backlog.
The mock-ups also allowed the GMHSC Partnership to experience the look and feel of the final product before its realisation. Whereas the User Acceptance Testing, which took place after each phase of the project, accelerated the customer feedback cycle.
The GM Smokefree Pregnancy platform created to assist midwives has many user-centric features.
Calendar — enables midwives to create and manage patient meetings; it has a special functionality that sends an alert around the time that the next patient visit should be scheduled. The calendar can also be accessed by all advisors across the region as many women will require stop smoking support outside of the hospital they choose to give birth in, allowing for timely access to appointments when referrals are made and reducing duplication.
Patient Profiles — Midwives create patient profiles where they can record information regarding patients’ demographics. They can also create referrals based on which geographical area they reside, they can add multiple pregnancies, the expected delivery date, and other details relevant to providing safe and effective care. The profile is connected to the calendar and includes a list of planned and past appointments. Once the patient is no longer pregnant, midwives can add this information to their record and close the profile.
Health Status Indicators — the application monitors various key health indicators, such as CO readings. It also allows individuals who support the programme participants on their stop smoking journeys to be added to the profile and monitored.
Real-Time Data Reporting Dashboards — this feature enables the lead midwives to organise their teams and track their progress, gain learning and intelligence that will support future programme innovation.
Email & SMS Notifications — the application sends email and text message notifications about upcoming scheduled visits, enabling midwives to effectively manage their workflow. The platform also sends motivational messages encouraging them to maintain their quit attempt.
Offline Capability — certain system features were custom developed to work offline, making the application more convenient and easier to use when there is a lack of Wi-Fi connections, which can happen in more rural areas.
Much like certain other applications developed as part of The Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s Digital Strategy and Early Years initiative, the GMHSC Partnership solution was also developed using the Mendix low-code platform. This allowed the Objectivity team to apply the same UI, thereby ensuring consistency across products and accelerating time-to-market.

What is TeamFinder?

TeamFinder is a showcase directory for companies delivering solution based on JavaScript.
There’re thousands of technology companies and no place to quickly find and evaluate them. TeamFinder extracts what’s best at each company - the teams that work hard on projects.

Why focus on team?

An established team has its energy - everybody knows who is the best at and they together can deliver outstanding results. It’s like a music band - Malcolm Gladwell once explained the success of The Beatles using the 10k hours rule.
