504 Leveraging Mobile Devices for Continuing Medical Education
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, June 25
Medical training and continuing education that qualifies for American Medical Association (AMA) CME credits is traditionally done via classroom, online, and one-to-one training. However, these modalities have not kept pace with the technologies used by today’s medical professionals. More and more, medical organizations are confronting the challenge of producing AMA-compliant education and training that leverages the mobile technology of today.
In this session you will explore a case study from Infirmary Health in which over 750 physicians and students needed to be trained in five weeks, with a design and development timeframe of only 10 weeks. You will explore the reasoning behind the decision to make this training available on mobile devices, specifically tablets. You will discover how the training was designed to fit into the fast-paced environment the physicians work in. You will discuss the obstacles encountered during the project and how they were overcome.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why Infirmary Health chose to use tablets for this project
- What obstacles were encountered during the project and how they were overcome
- How stakeholder approval was maintained
- What might be done differently based upon the lessons learned
Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.
