Qstream Solution Arms Medical Professionals with Information to Improve and Save Lives

Leading Microlearning System Provides Gastroenterology Fellows with Life Saving Knowledge to Identify and Diagnose Lesser Known GI Motility Disorders

Burlington, MA, June 12, 2019 – Qstream, makers of enterprise-grade mobile microlearning software that reinforces training content and drives behavior change, today announced its inclusion in a state of the art medical training enabling Gastrointestinal (GI) fellows to successfully interpret seemingly unconnected symptoms of GI motility disorders. Despite the significant impact of GI motility disorders on patients’ quality of life, many GI fellowship programs fail to offer meaningful motility training, creating a void in the GI field’s ability to train to better treat patients.

The learning experience for GI motility training is unique in the medical field as students often have little previous exposure to, or training for the disorder. Recognizing and connecting symptoms of the disorder requires fellows to have the ability to interpret very complex and seemingly unrelated symptoms. In addition, due to the complexity of GI motility, many general gastroenterologists may be less comfortable educating students on the topic, resulting in inadequate training.

To combat these issues, academics at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) used Qstream’s scenario based microlearning system in their teaching curriculums to provide fellows with bite-sized pieces of information, delivered in spaced intervals, to successfully create long term knowledge retention of the cognitive schemas of GI motility. Qstream’s technology enabled fellows to keep up to date with information and learn in the flow of work, in just minutes per day. This also reduced the teaching burden on faculty.

“There’s nothing more important Qstream’s technology could be used for than improving and saving patient’s lives,” said Rich Lanchantin, Qstream CEO. “Qstream was originally born out of Harvard Medical school, and we’re incredibly proud our platform is preparing these fellows with the lifesaving knowledge essential to connect hard to identify symptoms to diagnose lesser-known GI disorders. We understand fellow’s – and faculty’s – attention is valuable and we’re proud of the confidence UCSF put in the Qstream best practice microlearning solution to help ease the burden while ensuring optimal and long-term knowledge retention of this complex topic.”

“Qstream provides an ideal platform to augment fellows’ learning of GI motility disorders,” said Dr. Justin Sewell, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco. “The ability to space learning out over a period of months promotes learning, and the interface is intuitive and easy to use.”
