Launched e-Learning platform for a developer of interactive learning solutions for the medical device industry

When professional spine community was considering improving access to new information to its members, conventional means were quite ineffective. The community decided to employ more innovative methods to reach out to its members when they could spare little time from their busy schedules for these initiatives. We were shortlisted for this initiative to develop an innovative e-learning tool that was high tech, yet functioned as close as possible to traditional learning methods. The scope was extended to help spine surgeons earn their CME points through approved evaluation methods.

We used our tech and domain expertise to develop this exhaustive e-learning solution for these healthcare professionals. The solution is designed in Microsoft .net and enhances learning experience, supports existing teaching methods and provides a learning medium that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

The community extended enhanced learning through this medium by attaching CME credits and CME-certified courses. We created a Knowledge Check Management system that provides evaluation sections with the Topics and Products/Surgical techniques as necessary. A tracking and reporting tool helped keeping tabs on the knowledge checks attempted by the learners. The reward points system allowed access to next levels.

The solution implemented template based LCMS that allowed SME (noted surgeons) to create updated reference material and create dynamic content complete with version control.

The solution offered multiple features that enhanced the learner experience such as web-based Notebook. This online notebook allowed the readers to access their personal notes and materials anywhere any time. This online notebook allowed the surgeons to upload the surgery notes; images and videos directly into their private online Notebook. In addition the system also provided Calendar of Events, Industry News feed and a Forum.

We are currently working on a enabling the solutions on mobile phones and I-pads.

  1. I would like to Quote my experience of college days. In public library i used to see reading and preparation habits of Medical Professionals, Most of the times they used to highlight the text of thier THICH reference books. The reference book will ultimately be painted with different colors like pink, organge, green etc. different students had different meaning and reference about different colors. With this they had to compromise with the beauty of book it will look ugly & spoiled (Medical Education should teach about Painting??)

    With the Software solution you mentioned here where medical professionals can highlight important Text, take note and create notebook for quick reference at exam times and interactive video contents to give real surgical feeling they are bound to enjoy new way of Learning & Knowledge Management. Still they can keep same habit of text highlighting perhaps thier reference books will not get spoiled now.
