Opening Discussion Topic:

Best Practices for Re/Training Your Team

Last year a Johns Hopkins study reported that medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. – right after heart disease and cancer. And, the FDA estimates another 1.3 million people a year are injured by med errors. Little wonder government and all payers are emphasizing the importance of metrics – and training healthcare workers, whether they’re treating patients in the hospital, surgery or dialysis center, clinic or ambulance, SNF, rehab, pharmacy, or patients’ homes.

During our Members’ Discussion, we’ll hear about the best practices your organization has developed to minimize medical errors – particularly when previous “best practices” are elevated to a new standard of care that needs to be trained and re-trained with existing, new, registry, and/or floater staff. Our Featured Member, Arup Roy-Burman, MD, will then introduce us to Elemeno Health, a Just-in-Time micro-learning app developed for front-line healthcare teams, so “the latest training” on new processes and procedures they should be using will never be more than a few clicks away.

Arup Roy-Burman, MD, Co-Founder and CEO of Elemeno Health, as the Medical Director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, saw firsthand the need for Just-in-Time (JIT) learning. There, and in virtually all healthcare settings, front-line clinicians needed to be able to quickly access interactive guidelines, smart checklists, and concise how-to-videos from any device – desktop to mobile, 24/7. So, in 2016, he teamed with a veteran EA game developer to design a JIT micro-learning app that makes learning – and doing – the right thing engaging and fun.

RSVP today – and let us know Other Issues You’d Like to Discuss with us, too.
