MS Teams has been hailed as the ultimate collaboration tool. With more and more businesses adopting it or making the upgrade from Skype for Business, understandably, forward-thinking organisations are looking to make the move.
But how does it work for the Public Sector? A group of organisations that face a unique set of challenges, not least of all, compliance.
When any collaboration platform is brought in to consideration, security and compliance are always at the forefront of the list of concerns an organisation may have. Microsoft has addressed this issue head-on, with a custom set of Teams templates dedicated to the Public sector.
What are Teams base templates?
Base template types are templates created for specific industries by Microsoft, often containing apps that are not available for general release in the app store and "team properties" that are not yet supported in existing teams templates.
They are designed with the specific industry in mind and cover aspects that the industry will require, the permissions and compliance.
Once a base template has been selected there is a small element of personalisation that means you may extend or override the template with additional properties.
Microsoft has a list of base templates available and will continue to extend and develop more of these over time.

Development of Teams for Healthcare
Teams for Healthcare is under constant development and Microsoft offers several features to help healthcare organisations and hospitals. These include care coordination and collaboration, electronic healthcare record integration and worker system integration.
Microsoft is also developing MS Teams Patients apps with the view to aiding healthcare organisations in providing the best patient care possible. The preview of the app shows that it will integrate with EHR systems to provide healthcare providers with valuable healthcare insights, the ability to create lists of high-risk patients and for healthcare teams to all have easy access to patient records collaboratively.
