MedLern HeartCode complete training is today helping vulnerable population survive sudden cardiac arrests which take a heavy toll on lives in India.

With an easy-to-use interface, MedLern’s platform is specifically designed for hospitals in India to standardize and improve training for their healthcare workforce. This platform is helping hospitals streamline and measure training implementation and hiring outcomes through training impact evaluation and nursing recruitment assessments.

“Delay in receiving high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) dramatically reduces the survival chances. Scaling up training for India’s 6 million healthcare workers alone will require tens of thousands of additional qualified instructors. To include police and fire personnel, first responders and community members in this initiative will be almost impossible in a meaningful timeframe,” informed Deepak Sharma, co-founder and CEO of MedLern.

Medlern is working with over 350 hospitals, 80 nursing colleges and over 100,000 healthcare professionals in India with footprints in the Middle East and South Asia. HeartCode is a registered trademark of the American Heart Association. HeartCode Complete programs are co-developed by the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical, and marketed, sold, and distributed in India by MedLern.

HeartCode completely uses American Heart Association’s (AHA) latest research on the most effective resuscitation methods and a state-of-the-art technology stack with advanced sensors, IOT and analytics algorithms on MedLern’s learning platform. The technology-intensive approach can reliably train medical staff and ordinary citizens in a couple of hours using multimodal feedback and personalized learning algorithms.

“Making training flexible and uniform, meeting the specific requirements of every healthcare organization in India, MedLern offers omnichannel training delivered through eLearning, Classroom, and Virtual. MedLern training platform is designed to be mobile-friendly to simplify learning for hospital workforce amid their busy schedule and ensure round-the-clock knowledge and skill improvement with easy access anytime, anywhere,” Sharma explained.

The programme includes self-paced eLearning in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and self-directed hands-on skill training with the RQI-P GO Simulation Station.

Instructorless programmes use a complete stack of modern technology innovations – these include sophisticated AI algorithms, IOT sensors and real-time analytics to ensure effective learning of not just theoretical knowledge but also proficiency in hands-on skills while performing a medical procedure.

There is a rapid rise in the adoption of instructorless training technology as it adapts to the learning path and the proficiency of the individual learner rather than treating all learners the same. In the skills session too, the feedback to the learner is multi-sensory, precise and immediate so the learner can immediately respond with a modified approach and gain confidence in their skills.

“In India, Hospitals using HeartCode on MedLern platform have shown a significant increase in being able to plan and execute training, learning and development plans leading to an overall increase in productivity, employee engagement and compliance. Hospitals that have been on the platform longer are also experiencing improvement in quality and risk indicators including awareness of patient safety,” Sharma further informed.

MedLern has also partnered with BMJ publishing group Ltd. (British Medical Journal publishing group) to provide via its association, evidence-based CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses to help nurses stay updated with the evolving best practices, latest developments and training requirements besides empowering them to develop their skillsets.  It has also teamed up with Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), USA to provide the association’s Trauma Nursing Core Course online in India to help support the country’s growing need for skilled trauma nurses.

MedLern has collaborated with echelon, a division of AdventHealth University (AHU) and AdventHealth US, to bring evidence-based eLearning modules on various aspects of critical care practice accredited by the ANCC (American Nurses Credentialing Center), US.

To provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses for nurses in India, MedLern has partnered with RCNi (a subsidiary of the Royal College of Nursing), UK. The courses offered are peer-reviewed and evidence-based to promote best practices in nursing care and support nurses in their professional development.

MedLern is providing digital training to healthcare professionals and nursing students in Aster MIMs, Calicut; RR Institutions, Bengaluru; Hinduja Hospital, Highland Hospital, Mangalore; Premier Hospital, Hyderabad; CK Birla Hospitals, Kolkata etc.
