Find and fix Confidently Held Misinformation causing avoidable harm and unreimbursed expense.
The Scale of the Problem
- Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., just behind heart attack and cancer.
- Every year, more than 400,000 patients who go to the hospital suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death.
- Confidently Held Misinformation is implicated in 50% of preventable harm cases.
The Medical Knowledge Challenge
Medicine today is overwhelming. More than 36,000 medical journals, 12 million websites, and thousands of mobile apps vie to influence practice and behavior. Until now, clinicians have been carpet-bombed with ineffective traditional training that wastes time and frustrates everyone. This cursory training does not solve the problem of confidently held misinformation (CHM).
Amplifire is uniquely designed to remove the CHM that plagues
healthcare. It acts as a clinical intervention, diagnosing and treating
misinformation and knowledge gaps that lead to on-the-job error.
The platform has been proven to reduce avoidable harm.
Variation Leads to Inconsistent Care
“Unwarranted variation is endemic in healthcare.”
—Johns Hopkins’quality and safety expert Marty Makary, MD.
Proven Return on Investment
Return on investment comes from the extent to which Amplifire reduces the incidence and cost of adverse events and avoidable patient harm.
Amplifire has demonstrably reduced the incidents of hospital acquired conditions (HAC) by as much as 47%, saving lives and the expense of un-reimbursed costs. Because most HACs are very expensive, when Amplifire reduces their incidence by 0.1% to 0.8% it’s free.
We’ve got a lot of learning under our belts
With more than a billion learner interactions, the platform harnesses research, learner feedback, and artificial intelligence to continually provide a faster and more engaging path to mastery.
Join The Amplifire Healthcare Alliance
The Amplifire Healthcare Alliance is a group of major health systems, hospitals, physicians, and nurses working together to increase knowledge and drive better decision making in healthcare. We have aligned our efforts to reduce loss, improve performance, change behavior, and positively affect outcomes.
Great things will be accomplished as the Alliance continues to join with visionary, committed healthcare organizations focused on transforming healthcare.
