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.
Esteban Cramer-Martin is a busy professional in his late thirties. Three years ago at his last visit, the doctor recommended he quit smoking and lose weight.
According to his doctor, his blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol were a little high and improving his diet would help improve his overall health. He has cut back on his smoking and has also gained a little weight, despite his efforts to lose. He was too busy to return to the clinic for follow-up labs or for last year’s health maintenance. He returns to the office today, three years later, for another health maintenance visit.

Alejandro Ochoa is a 28-year-old Hispanic man who began experiencing self-described “ataques” a little over a year ago. He was evaluated medically after the first attack and was given a prescription for Xanax. His doctor recommended that he follow up with a psychiatric evaluation.
Alejandro did not follow up until today at the urging of his fiancee. It seems his attacks never went away and have progressively become worse, especially as the date of his wedding nears. Today Alejandro has come to the Valley View Therapy Center for evaluation.
