It’s no secret that people learn and retain best through the power of story. Throughout history, humans have used stories to educate, inform, and pass on important lessons.
Story-learning sticks. It moves us and helps bring meaning, depth, and compassion to otherwise static information.
Our diverse and realistic patient cases bring the power of story to healthcare education and reinforce human-centered use of technology. Built to be as multifaceted as the individuals they represent, the stories of our patients introduce vital healthcare concepts, lessons, and terminology in ways your students will connect with.
With a thorough review of a patient’s case in the Go EHR, students will build their understanding and find the information they need to care for, diagnose, and treat, while learning important documentation skills.
Teach students to focus on patients, not technology.
