Integrating BMJ Best Practice in to the clinical workflow

Promoting innovation in the health sector and supporting doctors by reducing cognitive burden is an important part of what we do to help create a healthier world. Our collaboration with the medical AI (augmented intelligence) start up based in San Francisco, RecoverX, helps us to do that.

Through this strategic partnership, we deliver continuous updates from BMJ Best Practice’s evidence-based dataset through integration. In doing so, we can provide real-time diagnostic support directly into the clinical workflow – helping to address the global problem of diagnostic error.

Connecting Patchwork Health with clinicians

In 2018, BMJ New Ventures, acquired a minority interest in Patchwork Health, the digital health tech startup that empowers clinicians by delivering an effective and flexible working service to solve the staffing crisis.

“Our partnership with BMJ has been enormously valuable. BMJ has helped us scale our marketing to reach a greater community of clinicians, and we have benefited from being affiliated with a brand that clinicians know and trust. We have also started working together on several strategic partnerships to better integrate BMJ products and services within our own product lines to provide a broader offering for Locum clinicians.

It’s been an essential and impactful partnership, and I believe that this is only the start of what we can achieve together.” 

Dr Anas Nader, CEO and co-founder of Patchwork Health Digital

Steering a startup through a pandemic

BMJ New Ventures provided input at the prototype stage of med-tech startup Oslr’s journey. The app connects doctors with medical educational opportunities at the bedside of patients in their workplace. 

“Our biggest takeaway was BMJ’s excellent agile approach to product development. The impact of that insight remains. Still today, we model our working ethos against the clearly defined frameworks that we learnt from BMJ. 

Everything we develop has our customer at the core, and we refine our product based on their needs.

Five years later, I can say that this way of working is an essential factor in our sustainable business success.”

Alan Pooley, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Oslr
