Two Gamers Aim To Transform Hospital Performance Evaluation

Two Gamers Aim To Transform Hospital Performance Evaluation | Innovation in Nursing Education | Scoop.it
Key evidence suggests that as hospital systems in the US reach a crisis point – involving the transition to value-based purchasing and tying Medicare and Medicaid dollars to performance – quality of care must improve. In many ways hospital employees have become the most important piece of the puzzle to improve efficiency, lower costs and improve outcomes. Disengaged employees in the US who turnover, for example, are estimated to cost as much as $11 billion annually due to lost productivity and poor results. As hospital leadership faces a new domain of uncertainty and demands, and must use innovative technologies to better understand and improve engagement and performance of employees, two gamers think they have the answer: real-time evaluation, fun gaming interaction and a culture of positive reinforcement. The team at AMPT Health is gambling that their new SaaS solution will revolutionize performance evaluation.

Gamification to boost workplace efficiency and productivity? Interesting concept, but I think the right culture  has to be in place for this to be successful. Fascinating.

Doctors should text. Here's how.

Doctors should text. Here's how. | Innovation in Nursing Education | Scoop.it
The media noted a trend of doctors connecting with patients through social media and texting as early as 2012. Doctors can respond to simple questions their patients send via email or text, and even analyze images of a surgical site in the healing process that a patient sends.Connecting with patients virtually has lots of benefits: less travel time for patients, reduced costs, a more consistent relationship with a primary care provider even at considerable distance.But even though we are now well into 2014, there are still no official guidelines or rules from a medical communications institution detailing how doctors should go about texting with patients. As with many other areas of medicine, a lack of guidelines leads to confusion and underuse of texting, especially among older doctors who earned their degrees before so many technological options were available.The American Medical Association acknowledges benefits in using social media, but also warns doctors to protect patient privacy and “maintain appropriate boundaries” with patients. Doctors report being unsure how to phrase their messages and how to modulate their tones.Texting well requires techniqueTexting has its own language and style, and length restrictions come into play as well, which can add to the confusion. What might have been a five-minute conversation in the office needs to be distilled down into a line or two via text.This is a new phenomenon and there’s no roadmap, but a few best practices have emerged. Patient surveys have helped. A new online survey designed to gauge patient preferences has yet to be published but was presented at the mHealth Summit in Washington D.C. in December.Frederick Muench, a clinical psychologist at Columbia University Medical Center, designed the survey and directed another study in a similar vein earlier this year.Both batches of results indicated that 98 percent of patients were potentially interested in using text messaging as a part of their continuing care strategy.Saving everyone timeThis type of “telemedicine” is increasingly popular, and could not only help patients connect to doctors quicker, but could save the healthcare system money in the long run by preventing unnecessary doctor’s visits; if a question can be answered in a one line text without a face to face meeting, so much the better.“These tools are embedded in my work day,” said Natasha Burgert, a pediatrician in Kansas City. “This is something I do in between checkups. It’s much easier for me to shoot you an email and show you a blog post than it is to phone you back. That’s what old-school physicians are going to be doing, spending an hour at the end of the day” returning patients’ phone calls, she said.As for best practices, here’s what else Muench found:1. Patients prefer statements, not questions.2. Complete sentences are best.3. They generally don’t like for doctors to use “text-ese,” like “LOL” or “wat.”4. Surprisingly, they do like positive emoticons.5. Also, make sure grammar is correct.Some of these may seem counterintuitive, like no to texting lingo but yes to emotes, but one central message does emerge. Texting is a casual form of communication, but the patient-provider relationship is still professional. Condensing but preserving what you would tell them in a face-to-face meeting should honor the subject matter.

Sandra Davidson's insight:
Interesting. As with any social media, it can be done well or done poorly. In the right context and with the right technique, texting can be a great tool in healthcare.

Show the Learner Visible Signs of Their Learning

Show the Learner Visible Signs of Their Learning | Innovation in Nursing Education | Scoop.it
One of the strengths of gamification is that it provides visible milestones of the student’s mastery of content in real time (when it is well designed). Too often in an instructional setting, the learner doesn’t know whether or not he or she really understands or can apply the knowledge they are learning. There is often no visible sign of mastery of the content or application of the content.

Excellent article!  I absolutely agree, "The world we live in is no longer ordered by industrial efficiency or repetition, but the exact opposite: unpredictability."  We must provide youth the education that is relevant for the world we live in today.

WEAC's curator insight, April 14, 2014 11:08 AM

Our increasingly structured education system is missing out on valuable opportunities for children to learn through play ... "Learning through play with 'hands-on, minds-on' approaches (not workbooks) is a powerful way forward. Play gives children space to dream, discover, improvise, and challenge convention. It’s crucial to social, emotional, cognitive and even physical development, helping them grow up better adjusted, smarter and less stressed.”
