Applying a Gamified Social Network to improve medical education and patient care

Back in 2010-2011 before even going to Singularity University Exponential Medicine, I envisioned a different way of rounding and providing patient care. An environment that would engage medical students, residents, fellows faculty as well as the patient in a platform that empowered all of them to participate and learn. When different teams round in an institution, there are straight cases and then there are more challenging ones.

LRN2DAY-ALMOSTWhat this platform allowed was for the different teams to share with the institution the cases and create an environment that inspired discussion between individuals. Imagine the facebook or yammer of the hospital. Gamification was incorporated which allowed proper selection of faculty or resident of the month or year. It also empowered the patient to participate in his health inside and outside the hospital.

Back in 2010-2011 this concept was considered crazy-unusual like many great ideas. I proposed it to different institutions, many liked it many did not. Truth is, 4 years later, many talk about this potential now but many too scared to implement it. At this point in time I am the Cofounder and chief medical officer of Curely, which is basically the Uber of Medicine. A telehealth marketplace that aims to democratize medicine. This in addition to my medical profession take most of my time and have no room for this project…

For this reason, I am uploading my sketches, envisioned prototype for anyone to use, modify and create. Have in mind this was created in 2010-2011 and yet, I believe its concept is still pretty innovative for 2014.

The paltform’s name was LRN2DAY or Caseday. In case you want to explore more about the files I am attaching the dropbox folder with slides and a “demo” of it.  If you have keynote, check the slideshow and it will give you a better idea.  Feel free to use as you please!
