Simply changing regulatory guidelines will not lead to physicians changing their practices.We need this if physicians are expected to align their practices with evidence-based guidelines.

The Physician Challenge

Is today’s training as good as it could be when lives and financial loss are at stake?  Simply publishing guidelines is unlikely to result in a change in behavior, which is needed to improve patient outcomes.

Solution

You need a training approach that improves clinical outcomes. Amplifire has the unique power to detect and correct confidently held misinformation, and prevent misjudgments and mistakes. It is a learning platform that acts as a clinical intervention, changing the way that doctors practice medicine.

Increase Physician Engagement

Physicians are more willing to engage with Amplifire’s training tool than other learning platforms because it engages and focuses learners’ time where it is needed most. In a recent study, hospitalists indicated that they were highly likely to change how they would manage a complex patient after a 20-minute course on diagnosing and treating epidural abscess.

Improve Patient Outcomes

Amplifire served as the learning platform in a national sepsis study designed as a clinical intervention. The goal was to acquire data on doctors’ and clinicians’ understanding of evidence-based sepsis care and their self-confidence in applying what they knew. Amplifire illuminated and eliminated 7,795 instances of confidently held misinformation and 14,500 instances of uncertainty.

This type of clinical intervention can help reduce the terrible price of sepsis—258,000 lives lost at a cost of $24 billion.

Consistency in Care

Discovering variation in healthcare delivery identifies opportunities to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.

Amplifire is the only tool that finds and eliminate individual and systemic variation. In this study, conducted among 15 hospitals, the platform found a wide variation among clinicians in their knowledge related to recognizing and treating sepsis. It led each clinician to mastery, reinforcing standardized and improved care.
