uPerform’s Bobby Zarr sits down with Dr. CT Lin to discuss how Lin’s team has ‘blown apart’ UCHealth’s training strategy and found success with a modern, hybrid approach. They are waving goodbye to traditional classroom training, rapidly onboarding clinicians with digital courses, and supporting users along their EHR journey with in-application help.
Then we have the uPerform self-paced learning [in Epic], which can be up to three hours. At the end of which, here’s your login. Go start taking care of patients. So, in as quick as about two hours, you’ve gone from ‘I need to get trained’ to ‘I can start taking care of patients.’
— Dr. CT Lin, CMIO at UCHealth
