Amplifire’s heatmaps can depict different aggregations of learners (e.g., by manager, department, shift) and content (e.g., by topic). Operational issues can quickly emerge; perhaps everyone who works for Chris shares the same misconception, or all nurses in a particular wing struggle with a particular procedure. Administrators can then evaluate and remedy these problems. According to Dr. Hyman, the heatmaps pinpoint exactly where “and how much work we have yet to do.”
Dr. Lockwood summarized Amplifire’s dual capabilities by saying that “the use of confidence-weighted testing allowed us to provide needed education to frontline clinicians while simultaneously identifying areas of risk for ongoing sepsis improvement. In this way, the impact and sustainability of our educational intervention was improved.”
Efforts are currently underway at CHCO to use Amplifire in other patient-care quality improvement initiatives. For a full list of available Amplifire courses, click here.
