Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
ArcheMedX released data today that demonstrates meaningful and significant improvement in learning among clinicians who participated in education powered by ArcheMedX and the company’s flagship self-directed e-learning solution, the ArcheViewer. Paired analysis of pre- and post-lesson assessment data (view full report) shows that learners participating in ArcheMedX-powered education consistently and repeatedly improved learning, competency, and performance.
Joel Selzer, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ArcheMedX added further evidence, “Since launching the first ArcheMedX-powered education in September of last year, learner completion rates have persisted at a staggering clip, upwards of 80% in multiple lessons, which is three times the industry average across both video- and case-based activities. This represents a remarkable achievement in a short period of time for the ArcheMedX team and our Educational Partners, but what really matters most is how ArcheMedX is improving learning, competency, and performance among clinicians today.”
The high completion rates are directly attributed to the ArcheMedX Learning Actions Model and the manner in which ArcheMedX-powered education engages and supports the clinician’s natural learning actions. New types of learning actions data captured through the ArcheViewer allow Educational Partners to explore deeper layers of learner participation and levels 1-5 of Moore’s expanded framework as measured by assessment data and the notes taken, reminders set, questions asked, and resources viewed, downloaded, or shared. Since planners and faculty can quickly assess the effectiveness of their planned content as learning actions data and lesson progress is presented back in real-time, they have been able to optimize lessons and consistently increase completion rates month over month over month.
Data collected from recent ArcheMedX-powered education revealed the following:
- Within 6 weeks of launching a recent initiative, learners had taken and set hundreds of notes and reminders and reviewed and downloaded nearly 500 key resources (i.e., journal articles, clinical studies, patient education tools) that Faculty and Planners had collated and connected to the primary learning experience.
- After participating in a series of ArcheMedX-powered CE activities nearly 50% of learners reported that they were now more comfortable applying the content matter in practice or were expressly ready to make a change in practice.
- When compared to a control group of demographically matched learners, participants of ArcheMedX-powered education answered a range of assessment questions across a variety of key learning objectives with 3-fold, 4-fold and even 7-fold greater accuracy.
- In another initiative designed to better assess learning change over time, learning was meaningful and significant (p = 0.00000000000539) in paired analysis inclusive of both declarative and procedural domains.
- Nearly 100% of participants believed that ArcheMedX-powered education would be a more efficient way for their colleagues to learn.
- And, within 30 days of participating in a series of ArcheMedX-powered CE activities, learners were nearly twice as likely to report having applied changes in practice.
Brian S. McGowan, Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer of ArcheMedX explained, “From increased participation and learning to improving competency and performance, the data overwhelmingly shows that ArcheMedX provides significantly better learning outcomes than traditional e-learning offerings. By adding structure to the learning experience, ArcheMedX-powered education is simplifying the way clinicians learn.”
These results are just the beginning. ArcheMedX is now working with education providers across the United States to leverage the ArcheMedX Learning Actions Model and e-learning solutions to drive AND measure changes in patient and population health outcomes.
As Dr. McGowan explains, “Over the coming months we will be exploring the impact of ArcheMedX-powered education on a variety of chronic disease conditions that are largely under-managed and overlooked in the primary care setting – and therefore lead to significant and unnecessary burden on our nation’s emergency room system.” These studies are intended to fundamentally transform how the industry describes and explores the value of CE and the CE profession in healthcare improvement.
