As we already covered in the Collaborate using RHE Services blog post last week, we highlighted a couple of ways you can use RHE services to help with collaboration and sharing information. We also covered this in our last How to series for RIAMS in the post, Benefits of Using RIAMS: Sharing Information. The purpose of this post is to provide a quick recap.
Not so long ago, we spoke with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in Northern Ireland regarding their use of Private Communities. Councils in NI are responsible for delivering the Home Accident Prevention Strategy and an over-arching, multi-organisational implementation group (HAPSIG) was set up to implement that strategy.
“To help with sharing of information across the various organisations, a HAPSIG Communications and Education Community was set up under RIAMS. The Community easily enables the group to collectively pool resources and share examples of good practice. It was also developed to be a central point for accessing minutes of sub-group meetings, regional and national policy, and information campaigns.”
Private communities need to be created by a subscriber but anyone can be invited to join these groups. Individuals can be invited by approving their email address and whole organisations by approving their domain. It is easy to manage information within private communities as you can create folders, upload content and continue the discussion in real time.
So, if you’d like to get started using Private Communities, get in touch with us today on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01239 711793.
