BISMARCK, North Dakota—Titan Health Corporation (Titan), an organization focused on addressing gaps in health care, announced the launch of The Learnery. Leveraging the latest learning research and methodology, The Learnery is a microlearning software platform that aims to empower learners to acquire and retain information more effectively over time. Through bite-sized training and educational modules, The Learnery breaks down complex concepts and reinforces them with repetition, leading to enhanced knowledge retention.
“Our goal is to help professionals improve knowledge retention for their career and personal growth, and that starts with changing the way they learn,” says Nick Dobrzelecki, managing partner, and co-founder of Titan and The Learnery. “Traditional learning methods, where vast amounts of information are delivered in one go, often lead to reduced focus and retention. Microlearning is a practical and proven approach to address these challenges.”
According to Titan, microlearning has been shown to improve focus and support long-term retention through studies like the one conducted by Murre and Dros (2015) on Ebbinghaus' 'Forgetting Curve'. The Learnery adopts a “small drips” approach, where learners engage in daily sessions, ensuring crucial information is absorbed and retained over time.
To alleviate the burden of content creation, the company has assembled a network of subject matter experts (SMEs) who develop evidence-based materials. This streamlines the process of identifying needs, sourcing, assembling and deploying content, while continuous updates and references keep the content relevant and up-to-date. The Learnery also offers custom content creation tailored to specific organizational requirements. The platform ensures that users receive tailored questions in short bursts, reinforcing and solidifying concepts. Each answer is linked to one or more references, enabling users to delve deeper and enhance their learning experience.
Accessible from desktops, laptops and mobile devices, The Learnery enables professionals to focus on one learning objective at a time, ensuring a clear understanding before moving forward.
The Learnery's initial courses are tailored for professionals in the home health and school nurse professions, with plans to expand into various other areas of healthcare and beyond.
In the skilled Medicare and Medicaid-certified homecare market, approximately 230,000 clinicians handle the critical responsibility of completing the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) assessment. Traditionally, these clinicians receive comprehensive training on this essential assessment upon hire, annually, or just when there are updates, which may lead to inaccuracies and is not fully effective. The Learnery presents a revolutionary approach with microlearning, providing clinicians with repetitive daily sessions to foster a deep understanding of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) OASIS-E Guidance Manual. This continual reinforcement significantly increases scoring accuracy, ensuring precise data reporting and compliance with CMS guidelines. Managers and administrators can evaluate clinician performance and identify areas that may need additional focus, thereby enhancing patient care and agency capabilities.
In the K-12 school nurse market, the absence of ongoing education for both new and seasoned clinicians creates challenges that can lead to frustration and burnout. The Learnery acknowledges the significance of supporting these clinicians and delivers content tailored to address the unique needs of school nurses, empowering them with essential knowledge and skills for delivering care to students and staff. By bridging the education gap, The Learnery aims to uplift the work of K-12 school nurses and strengthen the well-being of school communities.
“While The Learnery is purpose-built to help professionals in any industry, we saw great need to provide the home health and school nursing professions with our first developed courses," said Dr. Antony Chu, chief innovation officer, and co-founder of Titan and The Learnery. "These professions absolutely require regular preparation, training and skills enhancement. Inadequate training not only puts the patient and public at risk but also can lead to health care worker burnout due to not having the resources they need to do their job."
