With the new emerging technology in learning settings, we can make considerable improvement in the quality of medical education. We can employ revolutionary approach to impart training to doctors using cutting-edge e-learning technologies. Web-based learning including video clips, animated diagrams, medical images, etc. can be very effective way of learning for medical, health sciences, and dental students. The electronic information sources carry a significant value by providing rapid access. Medical databases that remains updated provide medical literature can be used for simple text based queries, or content-based visual queries. E-learning technology keeps busy clinicians abreast of recent advancements in their respective fields in an effective and less time consuming manner.
Learning Management system is an excellent vehicle that lets you deliver, track and manage training/education. Learning Management platform helps technologists and health care clinicians to streamline the process of continuing medical education activities. Pharmaceutical and medical industries are such where there is need to comply with very strict regulatory requirements. LMS allows consistent and timely access to standardized course offerings such as HIPAA, Sexual Harassment, Lockout-Tagout, OSHA, Red Flags rule etc.
