THE APP FROM ADELAIDE THAT'S WOWING THE US, BUT WHY CAN'T THEY CRACK AUSTRALIA?

THE APP FROM ADELAIDE THAT'S WOWING THE US, BUT WHY CAN'T THEY CRACK AUSTRALIA?

WHEN Adelaide's Nick Stephenson heard the story of an untrained junior doctor working for 11 years in a New South Wales hospital he decided he wanted to overhaul the medical training system with a clever training app.

His training software, XapiApps, allows medical professionals to learn in the field, record progress, and have senior doctors monitor the on-the-ground learning of junior professionals.

The App has since been implemented in a number of hospitals in the US in the three years since its creation, with the help of just seven employees.

MedStar Health, which employs over 30,000 people in the Washington D.C. and Maryland area, uses the software to monitor and improve how staff respond to Code Blue emergencies.

The software is logged to an individual's record and aggregates response times on a floor-by-floor and facility-wide basis.

Stephenson has recently travelled to Orlando for the Learning Solutions 2017 Conference and Expo where the group received an award acknowledging their contributions to the medical community.

We spoke to Stephenson about the success of the app, breaking into the US market, and the joys of being based in Stirling, Adelaide.
