This Month's Updates ...
New developments to the platform are underway and we have some nice surprises this month!
1. Edit Fields with Ease - Coming this Month!
We mentioned last month that we will be working on the Edit fields and guess what, they are being delivered earlier than expected! Previously to be in 'Edit Mode' you had to click the 'Edit' button in order to change text in any field throughout the platform. The 'Edit' button will be no more! You will be able to click in any text field across the platform, amend the text and when you are ready you will be prompted with a 'Save' button to save all the changes you have made. This prompt counts the number of changes you have made and asks you to confirm that you would like to save all changes.
2. Translation - Live Now
If English is not your first language then this new feature is definitely going to transform the usability of the platform for you and your colleagues. Take advantage of our phase one rollout of the new translation command in the Life QI platform which lets users translate certain areas of the platform, including navigation, field labels and buttons. Please bear with us as this functionality is still in Beta and requires ongoing development.
3. Driver Diagram Text Colour - Live Now
A simple but much requested change now features on the Driver Diagram's page. Previously the default text colour was white, depending on the background colour this could be a little tricky to read. Users now have the option to change text to black to increase visibility.
SPC Charts - Picking the Right SPC Chart Everytime!
Picking the right SPC chart can be difficult at times and picking the wrong chart can result in incorrect data being recorded which means your QI project would be inaccurate. Take a look at this article which helps you to pick the right SPC chart everytime.
Making a case for Quality Improvement in your organisation
The King's Fund and The Health Foundation co-authored an article on 'making the case for quality improvement'. The idea of making the case for quality improvement is not new, but there is an urgent need for more systematic approaches to improving quality to be adopted not just in the NHS but globally. Take a look at the potential benefits from investing in quality improvement. Here.
