In addition to reducing risk and improving patient outcomes across clinical teams, GNOSIS provides individual benefits for clinicians who want to perform at their highest potential. The patented, assessment-driven algorithm provides a learning experience unique in continuing medical education and unparalleled in patient safety and risk reduction initiatives. APS has conducted several studies to measure the impact on learning for doctors and nurses. Click here to see how GNOSIS provides transparency into team proficiency and identifies clinical risk areas.


Increases Engagement

This study examined the time spent on assigned course curriculum in Shoulder Dystocia and Fetal Assessment and Monitoring. APS calculated the average time clinicians spent on its “long form” course (without an assessment) as a percentage of the total course length. The study then compared time spent learning as a percentage of the assigned content in GNOSIS for OB. Engagement increased by 3 times for 10,000 nurses and 6.7 times for 3,000 providers.

Improves Clinical Proficiency

Learners with the highest need were the most improved with an average score increase of 37 percentile points

This study examined education outcomes for 700 clinicians who completed Obstetrical Hemorrhage in GNOSIS for OB. APS compared first assessment scores with second assessment scores after clinicians had completed their personalized learning path. Data showed that clinicians who scored in the lowest quartile, on average, increased scores by 37 percentile points – moving from below-average to above-average proficiency. Click image to enlarge.

Reduces Seat Time

Personalized curriculum for providers
reduced seat time by nearly 5 credit hours

As part of the ongoing risk reduction program at Ob Hospitalist Group, 163 providers completed Fetal Assessment & Monitoring course in GNOSIS for OB. This study compared time efficiency achieved with personalized learning against the average time to complete the traditional online course with the same content. Based on proven competency, each provider on average was able to save 4 hours and 56 minutes in learning time. Click image to enlarge.
