LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Health Council (MHC) today announced the release of ACEMAPP version 2, set for June 6th, 2016. ACEMAPP is a secure, online, clinical rotation matching, student on-boarding, and document storage solution for clinical sites, schools and consortia.
“The ACEMAPP team is very excited to offer new user-driven features with the release of ACEMAPP Version 2,” said Stacy Gradowski, Director of ACEMAPP at MHC. “The version 2 update will allow for improved flexibility to accommodate any process and become a one-stop-shop for everyone involved in clinical education, from scheduling to onboarding.”
ACEMAPP software was originally used exclusively by Michigan nursing schools and clinical sites such as Michigan State University, Beaumont Health System, and several others. However, the need to maximize scarce clinical rotations is of national interest. Over the last two years, ACEMAPP has spread beyond Michigan to states like Ohio, Indiana, Oregon, and Georgia.
“The previous version of ACEMAPP has been tremendously helpful in improving the nursing student clinical placement process throughout Southeast Michigan in particular,” said Sandra Schmitt, Manager of Nursing Development & Clinical Outreach at Beaumont Health. “I look forward to ACEMAPP version 2 with great anticipation as I know that; overall, we will experience greater flexibility in designing requested program abilities.”
Many of the software’s functions will remain the same, with version 2 simply adding more features and improved usability. The added features are a direct result of user feedback and market research.
“Collecting feedback and identifying opportunities to deliver added value has become part of our DNA. We recognize how critical listening to our members and partners is to our success,” said Craig Donahue, Chief Operating Officer at MHC. “The ACEMAPP team should be extremely proud of the tremendous work they have done to translate this feedback into ACEMAPP version 2.”
One of the most highly anticipated features is the integration of the software with third party vendors for background checks, drug screening, and immunization clearing. In addition, for those using a third party vendor, data will be automatically and securely shared, rather than manually transferred.
“The Detroit Medical Center is really looking forward to have the capability to upload required documents for our sites which will allow students to successfully complete their requirements prior to the start of their rotations,” said Julie Zarra, Clinical Placement Database Coordinator at Detroit Medical Center.
Other new features include the tracking of student and faculty orientation completion, improved flexible permissions, e-signature availability, and more.
