Primio app makes workplace learning easier
Primio has received €1.5 million in funding for the further rollout and scaling of its workplace learning app in healthcare. The ambition is to contribute to the development of up to one million healthcare professionals.
The Primio app assists healthcare workers in their jobs by providing relevant knowledge in an easily accessible and user-friendly manner on their smartphones. The app is also used by informal caregivers. It enables faster deployment of new healthcare personnel and reduces absenteeism costs.
The Primio app utilizes mobile microlearning, consisting of short, visual, and interactive learning activities. The app facilitates workplace learning, enabling individuals to become more quickly and efficiently deployable. It provides better support in their work, boosting their confidence.
Healthcare workers from organizations such as Spaarne Gasthuis, Lelie zorggroep, Kloek, Mantelaar, Cedrah, and Thuiszorg Het Friese Land are already using the Primio app. According to Christa Lubben, Innovation Manager at Lelie Zorggroep, healthcare workers feel 40% better supported in their work thanks to the app. "Therefore, we will roll out Primio nationwide for the Hulp bij huishouden department."
Increased Knowledge Retention
Primio founder Christiaan Uythoven explains, "With the Primio app, knowledge transfer becomes interactive, effective, and enjoyable. Employees can effortlessly maintain their skills and learn new things in just five to ten minutes a day. And because the information is offered in small, easily understandable portions, employees can retain up to 80% more knowledge."
The app enables better employee flow through its continuous learning model. Douwe Jippes, Managing Partner at Healthy.Capital, says, "Employees no longer need to be taken off the schedule. This saves healthcare institutions significant costs, and patients and clients receive the care they need. That is highly valuable in times of staff shortages."
