New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2017
Tiber Health, a global network of progressive medical universities, today announced the debut of its digital curriculum platform that will expand access to exceptional health sciences education in the U.S. and throughout the developing world. Tiber Health provides rigorous curricula and coursework that adhere to U.S. standards, high-stakes online exams, a robust analytics package for faculty and students, and all of the enabling technology that universities need to get health education programs up and running quickly and affordably.
The company’s technology platform, which drives the educational experience, leverages big data to help educators assess performance, personalize learning, and signal the right medical career pathway for each student. Local faculty tailor the curriculum to the cultural nuances of care in their communities and administer real-time assessments. With instant access to results, faculty can adapt classroom time to specific learning challenges. Tiber Health’s predictive analytics – based on 10 years of historical student data – uncovers insights about student performance, individual career pathways, and Board scores never before attainable.
“The human body is the same everywhere, yet there is a dramatic shortage of healthcare professionals in the places we need them most,” said David Lenihan, PhD, CEO of Tiber Health. “Talent is not restricted to certain geographies, so innovative approaches must be employed to find and educate health professionals around the world. The Tiber Health method radically scales exceptional medical education so that local communities everywhere have access to quality health care.”
The Tiber Health model is already driving results at Ponce Health Sciences University, an LCME-accredited U.S. medical school and the flagship school of the Tiber Health network. In the almost three years since implementing Tiber Health’s curriculum and delivery mechanisms:
- Ponce’s LCME Board pass rates have increased from 69% to 87%
- The percentage of Ponce students matched with medical residency programs rose from 85.5% to 89.5%
- Operating costs decreased by $7M
- Medical-degree applications increased by 30%
“The success we’ve seen at Ponce speaks for itself,” said Daniel Pianko, Tiber Health Board Chair and Managing Director of University Ventures. “Other schools are already benefitting from what we’ve learned at Ponce. The schools in our network aren’t passively adopting a single model; rather, each of them is contributing to a collective body of knowledge and insight that individual schools can draw upon to more effectively serve their students.”
