Learning is a process not an event

Learning is a process not a single event. That’s what we say regularly at Train IT Medical. Adult learners really need a multi-faceted, ongoing approach to continual learning.

Employees who receive training are significantly more productive than those who don’t receive training.

“A recent survey indicates that 40 per cent of employees who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year. They cite the lack of skills training …” eLearning.com We also find, in the medical… Continue reading

Data Aggregation using Pen Clinical Audit Tools

Pen CAT Plus

In last week’s blog we explored the topic of cancer screening data using MedicalDirector and Best Practice software. We discussed current limitations and offered free custom-made sql queries for advanced cancer screening searches.

This week we’re sharing Katrina Otto’s presentation created for North West Melbourne PHN Primary Care Conference (29 March 2017). Called Data Aggregation for Business & Clinical Quality Improvement using Pen CAT4, this presentation focused on analysing practice data using Pen… Continue reading

Cancer Screening & Prevention – Free Resources

New resources to assist practices and PHN’s identify at risk patients and measure screening rates

 

 

 

On average, one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with a form of cancer during their lifetime. Cancer is now the largest cause of disease in Australia, surpassing cardiovascular disease (Cancer Institute NSW).

Improving cancer screening rates and reducing cancer risk amongst our population is a key priority area for Primary Health Networks (PHN’s) and general practices.… Continue reading

Happy New Year!

Welcome Back! We hope you are having a great summer.

As we ease our way into this new year I thought I’d take a moment to look ahead in preparation.

Our business philosophy is that it is easier to keep up than catch up and I feel this will be vital in 2017 which will bring many more changes. With change comes the need for continual learning and improvements.

Here are just a few of the changes we’re thinking of… Continue reading

Reflections on 2016

As I sit at my desk and the end of 2016 draws near, I like to look back and consider what we’ve achieved. This year 5,440 people attended our training events and as I reflect my overwhelming feeling is how lucky we are here in Australia to have the incredible healthcare providers and services we have. 

My team and I completed 174 practice visits, took 67 flights and presented at 79 events and conferences to over 2154… Continue reading

The role of the PHNs

This week I had the pleasure of spending 2 days with the Digital Health Primary Health Network (PHN) teams from all 31 PHNs across Australia.

One of many things that were shared were learnings from PHNs involved with Australia’s recent My Health Record trial sites (major report is being written right now) and in particular lessons relating to building the involvement of all sectors – pharmacy, aged care, specialists, allied health providers, hospitals and aboriginal medical services.

5 Steps to Data Quality Success

Data Quality is a popular topic – how good is that! Uploading Shared Health Summaries to the My Health Record system raised awareness that for some practices this was a very easy 20 second process, for others it was currently unworkable due to sometimes 10-15 years of ‘mess’ in the patient record. To help with this data quality challenge I recently created and presented a Webinar (for the Australian Digital Health Agency) called ‘Standards for Digital Health’  – … Continue reading

Developing a ‘My Health Record’ Practice Workflow

Developing a ‘My Health Record’ Workflow

I am starting to hear good stories of benefits for healthcare providers and their patients using the My Health Record system. Of course what we need now is most of our patients to have a My Health Record and viewing and uploading to become routine. Only then will we start to see regular, significant benefits for our practices and patients. So right now all of… Continue reading
