Cloud Based Learning in Healthcare


Published on

This concept can be applied to the wisdom of clinicians inside healthcare institutions. By gathering and sharing course content and tools between care facilities, hospitals can be connected to more than just the technical cloud. They can be connected to the wisdom of the cloud.

  10. 10. The Pace of Research in Healthcare  Donald Lindberg, director of the National Library of Medicine:  'If I read and memorized two journal articles every night, by the end of a year, I'd be 400 years behind.’  A study by IBM, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer, and Wellpoint:  It would take clinicians 160 hours per week of reading just to keep up with the current pace of new knowledge  Only around 20 percent of the knowledge that human doctors use when diagnosing patients and deciding on treatments relies on trial-based evidence … the volume and complexity of what we know has exceeded our individual ability to deliver its benefits correctly, safely, or reliably. Knowledge has both saved us and burdened us.“ Atul Gawande, MD Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates
  11. 11. Keeping up with Emerging Practices Barriers:  Access to new clinical knowledge is challenging  Right information at the right time  You don’t know what you don’t know  Time on the floor for training is limited  Formal training takes place long after a need is identified OR without a real-world context to immediately apply learning  Increased Knowledge degradation This explosion in medical knowledge has not yet been accompanied by a similar transformation in our approach to medical education. In short, we’re not able to keep up. Sanjeev Arora, MD Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Blog
  12. 12. Case in Point: Research Dissemination December 2010 issue of Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Journal of the American Society for Microbiology:  Summary of multiple clinical studies including a 10 week study led by Professor Elliott in the UK  Trial of antimicrobial copper surfaces at Birmingham’s Selly Oak Hospital  Touch surfaces such as taps, door handles, light switches and dressings trolleys that were made from copper and copper alloys had greater than 90% less microbial contamination on them than the same items on the same ward made from conventional materials  Copper has recently been registered at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first solid antimicrobial material Grass, Gregor, Christopher Rensing, and Marc Solioz. "Metallic copper as an antimicrobial surface." Applied and environmental microbiology 77.5 (2011): 1541-1547.
  13. 13. Embracing Collaborative Practice Interprofessional Collaborative Practice  Teaching and sharing information across professions and specialties leads to better patient outcomes How it manifests in Education  Teach the same language to all members of the care team  Empower all members of the care team with medical and anatomical information  Supporting and growing knowledge across a care team also fosters open communication
  14. 14. Polling Question: Is this resonating?
  15. 15. What has resonated the most this far?
  16. 16. Movement Toward Mobile and Social Learning  Social Media in Healthcare by 2010:  500 million people were active Facebook Users  190 million used Twitter  1.2 billion YouTube videos were watched daily  Mobile and Social Learning are on the rise  A 2010 study found that 75% or more of physicians were neutral or positive on the following statements:  Online Professional user generated content is reliable  Online professional user generated content provides information I can not find anywhere else  I’m influenced by online professional user generated content that I consider to be from a reliable source (almost 50% agreed or completely agreed) Hertzlinger, R, Social Media in Healthcare, Harvard Business School, March 23, 2012, N2-311-093 HIMSS 2015 Info graphic , third annual HIMSS Analytics Mobile Survey James Avallone, “Taking the Pulse: Physician Social Media,” Manhattan Research, 2010.
  17. 17. The Technical Cloud Concept Technically:  Each system stores information on other systems – centrally, or through a network  Share computing power  Share resources and space  Distributed risk through distributed resources
  18. 18. The Wisdom Cloud Concept From a Content Perspective  Wisdom of the crowd approach  Share the Power of Experience  Share resources and effective practices  Distributed information and research summaries  Powered through peer review, search, and crowd “voting” (star rating)
  19. 19. Lambda LHS: A New FREEMIUM System Lambda is making available:  Open location for clinicians to gather and share  Research  Tips and Tricks  Protocols and Checklists  Tools to create and share research summaries  Process to peer review, search, and crowd “voting” (star rating)  Paid content library layers available to augment social content
  20. 20. Announcing: The LambdaLHS
  21. 21. Ruth Regular, RN…Sharing Shamelessly GIVE: GET: Every day efficiency tips for problems that have been bugging you for years Vetted research summaries and protocols / checklists Favorite lists from others in your specialty I can access new thinking when I need it and it feels good to review the contributions of others and share my own experiences. Write tips and tricks for clinical situations Submit protocols and checklists that the unit uses effectively Create a review of a research article you read or review research summaries others submit as a peer reviewer
  22. 22. Polling Question: What is most valuable to you?
  23. 23. LambdaLHS: A Call To Contribute Join our growing community:  Sign up to contribute  Receive launch and update notices  Become a peer reviewer  Share your knowledge, summaries, and tips today!
