Idea Medical Digital Environment and E-Learning Enhancement

By Joanna Venieri | 16 Dec, 2014

Idea submitted by: Joanna Venieri

I work in a project regarding E-Learning enhancement for patient health improvement to offer better health and teach patients with chronic illness in remote areas.

The project is to improve the training quality in telehealth through an effective virtual environment with e-learning materials. To improve the collaboration between health care professionals, offering the opportunity to discuss and work as a team and learn from one another by increasing staff mobility to widen experience and increase mutual confidence.

Telecommunications technology is used to provide video-based communications between patients and health care providers, allowing for observation and remote monitoring heart sounds, blood glucose, blood pressure, etc. The telehomecare is a new form for health care in the European Union and much better known and sufficiently developed in the USA. There are few training programmes for health care providers to be trained in working in this new digital environment.

We will create online courses that will train physicians, nurses, health care providers and others involved in telehealth. The basic objective is to enhance faculty professional development in e-learning methodologies. Deliver advanced e-learning , synchronously and asynchronously and integrate real and simulated workplaces.

Hi Joanna,
Is this something that the telehealth companies provide? There is definitely a space for learning about telehealth in general, what it is and what it can do, but to learn about how to implement it and use it, I would think would require the system that they will be using.

I'm a firm believer that telehealth will become a staple in US healthcare in the coming decades. I also agree that more people in the provider side need to learn more about telehealth and what it can offer. I think that training and courses that teach people how to use e-learning technologies would be great-- the only issue is that there is no one 'e-learning' technology. What I'm saying it is not as if you are designing a course to teach people Microsoft Excel, for example which is a standard processing program used all over the US. Rather, e-learning/telehealth hardware/software are not standardized and it would be hard to design a cirriculum that could be broadly applicable to health providers in the US. I may be misunderstanding, but I'd like to hear more about how you plan to integrate these e-learning technologies to enhance telehealth delivery.
