PORTLAND, OR—ReelDx has entered into an institutional subscription
agreement with Vanderbilt University School of Nursing to use ReelDx
Education’s real patient video case studies in the School of Nursing’s innovative
Vanderbilt is an industry leader in distance learning for graduate nursing
students. The School of Nursing will integrate ReelDx Education case studies
into both their in-person and distance learning programs, including 24/7 access
to ReelDx’s 500+ short videos of provider-filmed clinical encounters and curated
content. Vanderbilt faculty will guide the adoption of ReelDx case studies into
nursing curriculum, meeting synchronous and distance learning objectives for
more than 800 students.
“Our faculty are excited about the opportunity to enhance written case studies
with real patient video vignettes, making clinical topics vivid through real-world
presentations,” said Betsy Weiner, PhD, RN, Senior Associate Dean for
Informatics and Centennial Independence Foundation Professor of Nursing at
Vanderbilt. “Videos offer our students interactivity with case studies, along with
examples in applying clinical knowledge and skills. Increased interactivity is
important to us as we enhance our instructional design principles to comply with
Quality Matters standards.”
ReelDx Education provides healthcare educators easy, flexible options for
presenting its clinical videos to learners: As pre-packaged case studies, including
substantial case data and teaching points; or as stand-alone learning objects that
can be streamed to the educator’s LMS or embedded in lecture presentations.
Vanderbilt expects to utilize both approaches, with Blackboard integration as a
primary objective for the 2015-2016 school year.
“Faculty who have used ReelDx Education report that it’s a powerful and efficient
adjunct to any course curriculum,” says Dr. David Spiro, ReelDx Co-Founder and
Chief Medical Officer. “Faculty gain an ‘anchor’ case to make their content more
relevant. Students absorb and retain key learnings through the observation of
real case studies.”
ReelDx Education’s 500+ video case studies, covering 1,000+ topics, are created
by contributors at Yale University, the University of Louisville, and Oregon Health
& Science University, as well as clinics and ambulance agencies across the
country and internationally. All cases are produced with explicit patient consent,
strictly adhering to HIPAA-compliant processes.
