Stamford, 17 April 2014… NoemaLife, an expert provider of workflow automation and process management solutions for the health sector, has strengthened its clinical expertise with the appointment of a new clinical lead.
Atif Ishaq - a qualified, hospital clinical pharmacist who has also been working in the pharmacy primary care sector since 2001 - will support the development and implementation of NoemaLife’s ePrescribing offering as the company extends its footprint across the UK.
Additionally, Ishaq will be exploring how NoemaLife’s GALILEO Medication system can be enhanced to bring greater efficiency, reassurance and accuracy to busy NHS clinical teams.
Before joining NoemaLife, Ishaq held a number of pharmacy positions at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (WAHT). These included clinical support pharmacist and specialist clinical pharmacist and pharmacy IT systems manager.
In his most recent role of electronic prescribing and medicines administration (EPMA) and Pharmacy Informatics team lead, Ishaq addressed all aspects of EPMA projects including requirement analysis; product development and design; functionality assessment; deployment; training and benefit realisation.
Commenting on joining NoemaLife, Ishaq says, “I’ve been working alongside NoemaLife at WAHT since 2012 so am already familiar with the company. The openness of the company’s approach appeals to me as does its willingness to accept ideas to gain a better understanding of how a good EPMA can help trusts meet their electronic strategies.
“For Trusts faced with the challenge of delivering care in the current climate of cuts, initiatives such as Safer Hospitals Safer Wards are an excellent opportunity to use technology to help staff and patients alike. I’m excited to have joined an organisation which is utilising this technology to best advantage to bring efficiency and savings to Trusts while improving patient care in the process.”
While at NoemaLife, Ishaq will continue to spend an element of his time working as a hospital pharmacist. This will help ensure NoemaLife’s products continue to reflect how clinical practice is evolving within the NHS as initiatives such as ‘Sign up to Safety’ come into play.
“Technology alone won’t solve the everyday problems Trusts are facing,” says Robyn Tolley, managing director, NoemaLife. “Consideration also needs to be given to the context in how it will be used, and by whom, if maximum Return on Investment is to be achieved. Atif’s clinical experience brings an additional dimension of insider knowledge to the NoemaLife offering, ensuring that it meets the real-world needs of our customers and doesn’t just tick a box on a tender document.”
