Mailouts allow you to track who has viewed and read your orientation message, this is really important for a number of reasons:
Quickly provide accreditation evidence of who has had an orientation (with reporting functionality)
Provide access to important clinical information and time saving measures
Improve clinician wellbeing by reducing anxiety, stress and burnout (Clinicians experiencing burnout are likely to make twice the amount of mistakes).
Setup your hospital orientation message (Mailout)
If you already have setup your orientation template, skip this step!
Why should yo do this?
Any clinician starting at your hospital will be anxious about working in a new environment. Give them a a succinct summary of where to find information on how your hospital works!
When should this be used?
This is best used when you invite clinicians to the Med App platform, however it can also be sent after they have been invited to individually.
What should be included?
At a minimum you should include links to hospital maps, key contacts, term descriptions, procedural guides and escalation strategies.
How do I do this?
Sending a orientation Mailout after they requested access to the platform
Once clinicians have requested access and they have been approved into the Med App database, it's important that you send your orientation message. This method can be a bit tedious, which is why we recommend admin lead onboarding, to efficiently orientation clinicians at the same time.
Assuming clinicians have already been accepted to Med App;
