Obstetrics Case Study

When things go wrong in obstetrics, the reasons are often unclear, lack of knowledge is frequently the root cause. Errors in clinical judgment were cited in 77% of more than 800 clinically coded obstetric malpractice cases according to CRICO Strategies. By the end of each Amplifire course, 100% of the clinicians were proficient (confident and correct) on all the material.

Opioids Safe Use and Management Case Study

From 2000 to 2015, more than half a million people died from an overdose. Ninety-one Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. A clinician’s year of medical school completion is highly correlated with their knowledge about opioids. In an effort to combat this issue, AHEC in Charlotte, North Carolina deployed the Opioid Safe Use and Management course to 363 of their physicians in 2021.

Workplace Violence Prevention

25 percent of registered nurses and nursing students reported being physically assaulted. 93 percent of assaults come from patients. UCHealth developed a course that provides clinicians with de-escalation techniques to improve workforce safety and patient outcomes that resulted in a 34% decrease in workplace violence incidents.

Castlight’s Online Training Transformation Delivers Business Results

Amplifire’s adaptive eLearning platform is about “evidence-based” performance. It can drive many aspects of an innovative, digital transformation strategy. Castlight Health used it to build an expert workforce capable of achieving its business goals by finding and filling knowledge gaps and Confidently Held Misinformation (CHM) that lead to errors.

Sepsis: A Study Involving 1,051 Nurses

This sepsis study was conducted by a large US health system concerned with high rates of sepsis. Participants, 1,051 nurses, were asked to take an accredited, evidence-based, 29-question sepsis knowledge and performance course on Amplifire’s confidence-based e-Learning platform.

C. difficile Case Study

Clostridium difficile is a gram-positive, spore-forming bacterium that causes serious disease ranging from diarrhea to potentially lethal pseudomembranous colitis. The rate of C. difficile infections (CDIs) has been rising steadily since 2000, complicated by the emergence of virulent new strains. One of the major risk factors for development of CDI is exposure to antibiotics, which alter the normal gut flora.

Bar Exam Prep Case

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).
