A 2017 study evaluated the effect of Amplifire on simulated bar exam scores, but avoided two problems by comparing performance across exam topics within each learner. Topics on which a student used Amplifire were compared to topics on which that same student didn’t. This study thus controlled for most third-variable issues that undermine causality (e.g., student ability, motivation, study habits).
Amplifire found a significant amount of confidently held misinformation (CHM) around nutrition factors, distinguishing pressure injuries and IAD (Incontinence Associated Dermatitis), and other environmental factors.

Two of the biggest challenges organizations face are employee turnover and the subsequent poor performance of new employees. High turnover not only impacts the bottom line, it affects customer satisfaction and team morale. This study looks at Amplifire's impact on training, turnover, and financial outcomes when it was deployed at scale in large organizations.
The reason Amplifire can deliver significant outcomes is because the platform is built on specific discoveries in brain science that have revealed the most effective techniques for learning rapidly and retaining the information longer. The platform uses 14 cognitive triggers such as confidence-based questioning, spacing, interleaving, priming, feedback with a delay, and many others. You can read more about them here.
Our first-of-its-kind national hospitalist sepsis study was designed as a clinical intervention using the Amplifire training tool, which delivers a groundbreaking learning experience and advanced analytics. The goal was to acquire data on what doctors and nurses know about sepsis. Can they recognize sepsis at an early stage? Do they know the evidence supporting treatment guidelines? Are they confident about how to respond?
Because training is usually passive, the forgetting curve is very steep. In this example, flight attendants have recently taken a conventional training course on how to perform......
Why does CLABSI still happen? A major US health system employed the Amplifire training tool to acquire data on what its nurses know and don’t know about these protocols for managing CVCs, and to find and fix any misinformation the nurses held.
A major US health system employed the Amplifire training tool to acquire data on what its nurses knew and didn’t know about managing urinary catheters, and to find and fix any misinformation. Could the nurses identify when catheterization is indicated? Did they know how catheterization tubing and equipment should be handled? Were they confident in their knowledge? Was their confidence justified?
Getting and keeping physicians’ attention is critical, and very challenging. Influencing their decisions is even harder. Regardless, aligning physicians to make decisions that reduce......
Over 40 years ago, at the start of my healthcare career, I was introduced to the Donabedian Model for healthcare quality. We all are familiar with this conceptual framework......
