The Classroom Training Era Has Passed

This presents an opportunity. Knowledge engineering is clinical training 2.0. We are using it to deliver performance gains that the classroom never could. It is helping our clinicians attain a higher level of performance as they find and fix their uncertainty, knowledge gaps, and confidently held misinformation. The results have been measurable:

  • Less clinician error
  • Better patient outcomes
  • Higher reimbursement

Knowledge Engineering Reduces Patient Harm

avoidable harm third largest cause of death

Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind heart attack and cancer.

deaths due to avoidable harm

Every year, more than 400,000 patients suffer preventable harm that contributes to their death.

50% avoidable harm are knowledge based

Confidently Held Misinformation is implicated in half the cases of preventable harm.

Healthcare is Complex

“You take massive amounts of information stored in the heads of expert health professionals and expect them to somehow correctly deliver it to patients. I personally believe that this combination of smart, confident professionals, tightly trained around specific issues, in conjunction with effective systems, has the potential to carry health systems far beyond what any of us would believe possible.”

Brent James, MD, Clinical Professor at the Clinical Excellence Research Center, Stanford University School of Medicine
