PlatformQ Health Releases Data on How Digital Education Improves Patient Outcomes PlatformQ Health Releases Data on How Digital Education Improves Patient Outcomes

Leading provider of live, online medical education shares case study demonstrating effect of recent educational program on patient knowledge, shared decision-making behaviors, and empowerment.

PlatformQ Health is proud to share research highlighting the key components for creating digital health education to improve patient outcomes. The report, which highlights insights from a program designed for patients and caregivers managing B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, explores how:

  • partnering with leading advocacy organizations yields better content
  • interactive programs that include the patient voice engages patients more effectively than traditional didactic presentations
  • a video-first format supports information retention and knowledge improvements

The 2017 B-cell NHL program for patients was created in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), who have collaborated with PlatformQ Health on four recent programs – the others focus on acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Follicular Lymphoma (FL), and clinical trial participation. LLS is one of many societies, advocacy groups and foundations to collaborate on patient & caregiver education with PlatformQ Health: others include the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, the National Stroke Association, the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, GBS|CIDP Foundation International, ILD Collaborative, and the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America.

The report includes guidance and insights for making patient education programs effective, including tips from industry leaders, details about marketing and outreach techniques, features that support engagement, and reporting technology. It also shares insights from the program’s quantitative and qualitative outcomes, including key findings from a large qualitative survey administered as part of the initiative.

Forged in deep collaboration with the trusted sources for patient information, programs are able to reach affected communities with material that meets the different communities’ learning needs. The white paper shows specific improvements in knowledge, empowerment, and shared decision-making behaviors that can be traced back to this live and interactive educational program. Each patient program features built-in outcomes tracking tools, support resources, and is lead by a panel of top medical specialists, patient advocates, and experts-by-experience – patients and caregivers who know a condition personally.
