MLCSU’s informatics team awarded ISDN ‘Excellence in Informatics Level 1 Certificate’
We are excited to share that our Informatics Team has been awarded the prestigious ISDN ‘Excellence in Informatics Level 1 Certificate’. They were presented with the certificate at the North West Connect Conference. The team has been acknowledged for achieving consistent good practice in “Informatics Workforce Development”.
The ISDN accreditation is a peer-assessed standard of excellence in informatics and requires organisations to demonstrate and evidence capability and good practice against a wide range of criteria.
At the presentation ceremony, colleagues from the informatics team were all smiles as they proudly held up their certificate. Pictured left to right were Katie Burrows, Louise Ross, Rupa Chilvers, and Debbie Bywater, along with Paul Copeland, Paul Chadwick, and Neil Morgan.
Debbie Bywater, Chief Information Officer(CIO) at MLCSU, had the honour of opening the conference, which this year was focused on building the skills for a sustainable data and digital enabled future. This event was a great opportunity for the team to network with colleagues from across the North West and to hear from a number of thought-provoking speakers and patient advocates. They were also able to share their own insights and experiences and raise awareness about some of the innovative digital and data projects they have been working on.
Commenting on the team’s achievement, Debbie Bywater, CIO, said, “We are extremely proud to have achieved Excellence in Informatics Level 1. The accreditation process was a very positive experience and provided us with an opportunity to reflect and recognise the good work we have undertaken. It is a fantastic achievement that reflects the hard work, commitment and important contribution informatics makes to our organisation and those we support.”
The team’s ISDN accreditation is a testament to their ongoing commitment to professional development and staying up-to-date with the latest developments in informatics. You can see all of our achievements here. The winning entries can be seen below.
