Technology to Enhance Learning: Open Source Educational Dashboard To Measure Clinical Experience in Medicine and Radiology

Description

Our proposal for the Clinical Care Innovation Challenge Award is focused around the AAMC Optimizing Graduate Medical Education initiative, by leveraging data analytics to improve health care quality. Specifically, we will deliver an open source dashboard and report function for trainees that will quantify their clinical learning experience and provide utilization metrics to enhance training which will be used across multiple departments. During the past year, the radiology department at WCMC , with support of a research educational grant, has developed an innovative resident dashboard to better measure the clinical experience of the resident, that better tracks progress of proposed curricula of the residency programs. This open source dashboard is an integrated system to provide radiologists-in-training a visual representation of their work, and diseases they've encountered during their clinical rotation. It allows a resident to drill down to the individual study where trainees can compare their own interpretation with the supervisors' corrected dictation.
