1 Season's Greetings!
Season's Greetings!
I have always thought that along with the celebrations, the end of the year is a great time to reflect on challenges and successes and is also the perfect opportunity to take a look ahead.
This year, organisations across the board in almost every sector have been tightening their belts, but have been expected to still provide more and more for their communities and stakeholders. Despite these challenges I'm pleased to say that many of our clients have put successful new strategies in place to overcome these issues, some even becoming award winners!

It's also been a great year for CAMMS: we have received recognition from Gartner as being a 'Cool Vendor' for our risk management capabilities in the digital age, developed new, exciting software solutions to meet the evolving needs of our clients and have been thrilled by the recent feedback about our helpdesk / support services.
Next year we'll be increasing our efforts to see how we can add more value to your experience with us through initiatives like product and professional training and tailoring our solutions further for industry and purpose in order to support you in your journey towards excellence.
We'll be in touch with further news in 2016!
From all of us at CAMMS: Enjoy your holidays!

3 CAMMS Clinical Audit
CAMMS Clinical Audit
Health care providers are under pressure to deliver better quality services and care, increase efficiency and achieve NSQHS Standards accreditation. Clinical audit management is key to how organisations achieve this and drive themselves towards safer, higher quality patient care.
CAMMS Health provides health services with easily accessible integrated software tools that support the auditing and improvement process for NSQHS Standards accreditation.
To find out how your organisation can benefit, please email us.
4 Working with Not-for-profits
Leveraging on experience from working with NGOs across the UK, Australia, New Zealand and North America, CAMMS' understands the complexity of requirements within this sector and as a result has tailored a solution designed specifically for NGOs. We're thrilled to be supporting both MAG and ARTICLE 19 as they campaign across the globe.
Mohawk Shared Services (MSSI) Mines Advisory Group (MAG) works to make the world a safer place through landmine clearance, community liaison, emergency response and weapons management. They selected CAMMS to optimise programme management, reporting and collaboration across the regions they operate in.
MAG chose CAMMS as it provides a proven, flexible platform that enables management of individual proposals and contracts with relevant information made available for programme and organisational 'views'.
MAG has been able to implement a more streamlined and effective approach to proposal development, contract delivery and indicator and financial reporting for the benefit of both programmes, donors and the wider organisation as a whole.
ARTICLE 19 ARTICLE 19 was seeking a solution that could improve the alignment of operational plans and projects to strategic objectives and foster collaboration, communication and visibility of programme, project and performance information across headquarters in London and regional programme offices throughout Africa, North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
CAMMS is now helping ARTICLE 19 with an intuitive and robust platform to monitor and report on the execution of its recently endorsed Strategic Plan while providing actionable insights to enable informed decision making at all levels of the organisation.

5 Spotlight on…
North Eastern Community Hospital (NECH)
North Eastern Community Hospital (NECH), is South Australia's only single site, not-for-profit combined Hospital and Aged Care service. The Board and management needed a solution to review and improve its risk management approach across the enterprise and importantly to meet the requirements of the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS) for accreditation.
With CAMMS, NECH has been able to transform its approach to risk management.
"I engaged CAMMS to provide a software solution for Risk Management, primarily because what they were offering was more than just a risk register, rather an integrated approach to risk management."
Scott Williams, CEO
