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.

Mithsa is a 62-year-old female originally from Laos. She has a history of cirrhosis secondary to portal vein thrombosis. A few months ago, the decision was made to initiate hospice care at her son’s home, where she lives. At that time, she was told she had weeks to months to live.
However, once on hospice, Mithsa’s condition improved on its own. She took herself off hospice and changed her status to full code. She is now back in the hospital with a progression of liver failure but is vehemently opposed to palliative care. She needs a complete team approach for her discharge plan.
