Look back at a good example of collaboration between a hospital and a company.

A project led by CHU Saint-Pierre and Opal Solutions.

Interneo has become the best ally of hospitals and schools to help them in their management of internships. For a hospital like CHU Saint-Pierre that organizes more than 1000 internships and manages hundreds of students per year. The absence of a specific solution to the management of internships greatly contributes to the increase in staff workload.

At the beginning of our collaboration with CHU Saint-Pierre in 2018, our goal was to simplify the communication part towards the various partners of the hospital in order to facilitate the dissemination and centralise all the information related to the internships.

“Originally, Interneo was a web page that included quotas and internship constraints for the different schools linked to the hospital. Pretty quickly we thought it was interesting to create a common, shared space where everyone could directly do their encoding and internship applications. Both on the hospital side and the school side, centrally.”  Xavier Rouby

Interneo, the #1 tool for managing nursing internships.

Other institutions soon joined us, including the Clinique Universitaires Saint-Luc, which invited a dozen schools to adopt the platform. Little by little, they in turn asked for new features to continue improving the platform.

With Interneo, Opal Solutions brings together all the different actors of the internship within a single platform.

Our goal is to reduce repetitive tasks with low added value such as email exchanges, calls, and file sending. Tasks such as applying for and accepting internships and creating schedules are distributed among schools, hospitals and students.

Thus, we manage to reduce the administrative workload of all actors by almost 90%. All this time saved is then returned to the caregivers to care for the patient and to the teacher to care for their students.

In addition to improving and standardizing this process, trainees are directly assessed in the platform. In this way, care institutions directly identify the “good elements”. This allows them to create a real recruitment pool to meet the shortage of nurses with resources already assessed by the field.

A clear vision and goal

How do we get time for patients?

By removing Excel files and email exchanges and having everyone directly do their share of the work in the right tool, institutions recover thousands of hours of work.

With a unique and centralized location, all actors involved in the organisation of internships have access to structured and up-to-date information. Including coordinators, supervisors, masters of practical training, ICANEs, managers, secretaries, heads of department, heads of hall, hygienists as well as collaborators of IT, logistics and human resources departments, etc.
