A new partnership has been announced which will transform the provision of leisure-based health programmes for millions of people.
Gladstone, a supplier of leisure management software, has formed a collaboration with exercise platform, ReferrAll, which will mean health and leisure operators using Gladstone’s UK industry-first cloud-native software will be able to seamlessly integrate with ReferAll’s specialist data management platform for health and wellbeing programmes. The move is expected to transform the management of health-related services across the leisure sector. Gordon Watson, head of marketplace at Gladstone, said: “Easy-to-use and secure, ReferAll’s platform enables health and wellbeing teams to manage referrals for multiple schemes and report on outcomes in real time. “Using our new single API, customers on our cloud-based platform will now be able to seamlessly integrate the two systems, saving hundreds of hours in admin per year.” He added: “From referrers in a healthcare or community setting, to service managers, delivery teams, and commissioners; the ReferAll platform offers a 360˚ view of their service and the data-driven insights it will provide will play a pivotal role in optimising wellbeing services and improving health outcomes across the leisure industry.” Designed and built by industry experts to reduce workloads for service managers, to date ReferAll’s customers have managed more than 700,000 referrals via the platform. The easy-to-view dashboard offers a real-time, detailed report of all referral schemes and their status, including details such as referrals received, uptake, and completion rates. This will enable Gladstone-supported operators – which include David Lloyd, Everyone Active, Fitness First, and an array of the UK’s biggest councils and universities – to analyse service performance and patient outcomes, and to clearly demonstrate to commissioners and stakeholders the positive impact schemes are making to participants’ physical and mental health.
