Qstream is widely used for professional healthcare education by some of the world’s top medical centers and healthcare leaders on a range of topics, including patient safety, infection control, emergency medicine, palliative care and advanced life support.
Our 90-day Starter Services Pack puts you on the fast path to success with Qstream. Services include project planning, implementation, launch, admin training, dedicated account manager and end-user support.
Every month, new residents rotate through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine pediatric emergency unit, facing the challenge of combining general pediatrics with critical care specialties and emergency medicine. Dr. Neva Howard, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at UNC School of Medicine, leverages Qstream instead of traditional lecture to reinforce critical knowledge residents must master during the rotation. As a result, Qstream delivers 90% or above engagement and a 50% or higher improvement in proficiency rates.
At the UF College of Pharmacy, clinical assistant professor Dr. Sando developed a Qstream program for first-year students covering the Top 200 cardiovascular system drugs, the most common medicines that students would encounter in Top Pharmacy School Uses. As a result, 13 of the 15 scenario-based challenges achieved statistically significant proficiency increases, with overall proficiency improving 19%.
In 2015, Women’s and Children’s Hospital, the leading provider of specialist care for children with acute and chronic conditions in South Australia, deployed Qstream’s award-winning mobile knowledge reinforcement solution with 140 junior medical officers, aimed at helping them retain and apply important knowledge on pediatric medicine and pediatric surgery.
A Level 1 trauma center, IFMC deployed Qstream at its new Advanced Surgical Technology and Education Center to improve patient safety through technology with surgeons, nurses, anesthetists and surgical residents. Qstream helps them keep staff current in critical OR safety domains, including universal protocols and fire safety, and help its surgical residents to perform better on the national SCORE curriculum and the companion ABSITE surgical skills exam.
Developed at VA Boston, the Qstream Online Game is a collaborative mobile learning competition based on a simple system of questions and answers. Of the 267 VA nurses that participated, 97% (259) answered one or more questions and 87% (233) answered all 22 questions. On a final survey, 90% of the nurses requested to receive other VA mandatory training via Qstream.
At Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), rotations in clinical subspecialities present information that frequently isn’t reviewed again until after residents move on to the next rotation. Yet this knowledge must be fully retained and kept top of mind to be used in clinical settings – most often when residents least expect it. Qstream helped clinical residents do that.
Delirium in the elderly often goes unrecognized. Some 14%-24% of hospitalized patients over the age of 70 have the condition at the time of hospital admission, with greater than 54% incidence in the general hospital population. Using Qstream, Houston Methodist Hospital improved the ability of its clinicians to recognize and act on this under-diagnosed condition.
With nearly 99% student satisfaction ratings in post-semester surveys, Qstream’s mobile platform helped Charles Darwin University, one of Australia’s top research universities, to successfully transform its Anatomy and Physiology curriculum.
For this Australian teaching hospital, Qstream is an integral part of their 5th year medical program and a requirement for end of year assessment. As the curriculum becomes more crowded and opportunities for traditional bedside teaching become limited, the need for mobile learning solutions that reinforce critical practices is a priority for universities like this one.
Qstream is a fast, effective way for today’s busy clinicians to acquire and retain the critical information and skills they need by playing a game in just minutes a day on any mobile device. Watch this short video to learn how Qstream works.
Healthcare organizations are increasingly looking to align clinical quality and patient safety initiatives with their CME programs. In this healthcare webcast, explore how leading medical center Virginia-based Inova Fairfax Medical Center is using Qstream’s mobile, game-based platform to drive improved patient safety and clinical knowledge among an interdisciplinary operating room (OR) team. Inova’s Dr. Heather Prentice, PhD, MPH, Surgical Epidemiologist/Biostatistician, shares how Qstream is successfully expanding the skills of their health care professionals in just minutes a day.

Sales enablement is more than a one-time event, and must be sustaining in order to change behavior. As highlighted in Malcolm Gladwell’s best-selling book David and Goliath, the incorporation of “desirable difficulties” into educational programs can also have a profound impact on learning. In this webcast, following the highly rated workshop from June’s LTEN (formerly SPBT) Annual Conference, Dr. Price Kerfoot explores recent scientific advances, as well as new reinforcement approaches proven to positively impact learning and behavior.
