When it comes to learning and development, how are you engaging with interactive hands-on learning? Through technology, learners have become active hands-on learners. They want to “do” while being taught, they want to participate in their learning.

A few reasons to incorporate hands-on learning for HealthIT and EMR adoption:

Productivity

Interactive hands-on learning is emerging as one of the preferred modes of training for working professionals. Gone are the days of marathon classroom sessions and costly travel to a corporate location for training. Per a Brandon-Hall Study, learning through traditional eLearning typically requires 40% to 60% less employee time than learning the same material in a traditional classroom setting. Traditional eLearning increases retention rates by 25% and learners can learn up to five times more information than in a standard classroom lecture, while retaining the information better. Therefore, enhancing your eLearning solution with an interactive hands-on solution increases learner engagement and boosts their retention of the information being taught.

Accessibility

Studies have shown that when an individual consumes information in small increments and with frequency, they retain the information better than in an eight-hour marathon session. Clinicians have busy lives…an EMR shouldn’t hold them back or keep them longer. Proper hands-on training, utilizing eLearning, allows for the consumption of training at their pace, at a time when they can focus – with no audience to watch them learn.

Scalability

Size doesn’t matter, 200 or 20,000 learners… Learn on Demand Systems interactive hands-on labs are highly scalable, from size to content. Each user gets their own sandbox to play in, whenever their schedule allows.

Learn on Demand Systems (LODS) encompasses each of these elements of hands-on learning, providing learning technology that allows for “hands on” environment, for any software on which your team is training. LODS does not use a simulation, but rather a mirror image of your EHR software. Thus, allowing for clinicians to log in and learn at a time convenient for them; a time when they can focus and learn at their own pace.
