The Midwifery and Maternity Providers Organisation (MMPO), established by the New Zealand College of Midwives, is the largest organization in New Zealand dedicated to supporting self-employed midwives to meet their service, professional and financial commitments. Clevermed have been working closely with the MMPO to design an electronic system (referred to as the MMPO Midwifery Information System by its staff and members)to support the midwives in managing their care and practice.
Following a successful 5 month pilot phase, the system is now being phased to a full roll-out across the MMPO midwifery members. With benefits such as in-built claiming rules, off-line mode allowing midwives to enter information in the community, and sharing information and records easily between practice partners, the feedback has been very positive to date.
The MMPO have a dynamic team which have been great to work with. We are looking forward to an on-going relationship as part of our managed service to ensure the inbuilt features of the BadgerNet Platform continue to evolve and improve in supporting midwives’ needs.
