Developing care in healthcare education
Videolab allows healthcare professionals to securely share patient interactions. This is useful if you care about patient centered care and secure collaboration. That is why top universities across Western Europe use Videolab.
In patient centered care and joint decision making the patient plays an active role in his treatment. Therefore soft skills training and empathy in health and social care play an increasing role in the professional education of caregivers. Accordingly healthcare professionals must be trained in patient communication and patient empowerment in line with the patient centered approach.
This is done by leveraging Videolab. Videolab is a secure healthcare application which is used to safely record, share and analyze patient interactions. This can be; role playing amongst trainees, simulation patients or real patient interactions. The privacy by design architecture of Videolab allows ethical and GDPR compliant recording and sharing of videos.
We highlight 7 common workflows:
1: Self reflection. Example: The trainee annotates and reflects on his patient interview.
2: Peer feedback. Example: The trainee provides feedback on his peer’s patient consultation.
3: Coaching. Example: The trainer provides feedback on the patient interactions.
4: Evaluating. Example: The evaluator rates against a methodological standard of communication in healthcare.
5: Evaluation of feedback. Example: The trainer provides feedback to the peer feedback of workflow 2.
6: Scenario training. Example: A trainer provides a recording of a patient’s interactions to which the trainee annotates according to a methodology being learned.
7: Research recordings. Example: Several researchers make recording of a type of patient interaction to analyse and create or validate theory.
We consider Videolab both a Medtech and a Ed-Tech solution used at university medical centres, private hospitals, skillslabs, clinics and private practices.
