Paris, April 28, 2020 – In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Deeplink Medical, with the support of WeHealth™ Digital Medicine, is launching an e-learning module designed for healthcare professionals. Freely available in French and English, this training program aims to accelerate the diffusion of good imaging diagnostic practices of patients suffering from Covid-19.
The thoracic scanner has an important role in the diagnosis of Covid-19 and also in the management of patients. This examination helps decide the approach for patients by confirming the diagnosis of lung damage related to Covid-19 or by confirming a differential diagnosis. It therefore contributes to streamlining the sector of “Covid-19 emergencies”. The thoracic scanner also plays a role in the evaluation of the severity of the disease and the monitoring of the lung lesions.
To support healthcare professionals in the current health context, Deeplink Medical, publisher of digital health solutions, has designed, in collaboration with its two partners, Imadis, a medical teleradiology company, and Rise Up, publisher of e-learning platforms, an online radiology training kit on Covid-19. Freely accessible via a web platform, the training program offers interactive, didactic learning, punctuated by quizzes with extremely well-researched answers. The content of the learning pathway draws on more than 30 imaging clinical cases selected from around 3000 scanners managed by Imadis and from the care sector devoted to Covid-19 made available by Deeplink Medical since March 13, 2020.
For a period of 70 minutes, the e-learning module allows the learner to independently manage the training program at their own rhythm.
This very comprehensive e-learning enables healthcare professionals to benefit from a solid radiological training program in the context of Covid-19.
Since being made available on April 6, 2020, about 1 250 health care professionals in France, have already joined the training platform that is also now available in English.
Prof Eric Delabrousse, Head of the Imaging Division, Besançon Regional University Hosiptal Center (CHRU) declared, “My colleagues and I found the training program to be very well done and didactic, the information is pertinent, sourced, and intelligently presented. The iconography is rich and the semiological descriptions are meticulous and adapted. This Covid-19 training program ensures an enjoyable learning process with quizzes and clinical cases, for active participation.”
Adamfa Coulibaly, intern at Poitiers Hospital University Center (CHU) and President of the National Union of Radiology Interns, commented, “The format is interesting, the content is pertinent.
I commend the efforts and I can only recommend it!”
All the medical content produced by Imadis’s medical radiologists was developed as a result of:
- Feedback on their collaboration with more than 70 health care establishments
- Guidelines from the French Society of Radiology
WeHealth™ Digital Medicine, the e-health department of the Servier Group, is supporting the initiative of its partner Deeplink Medical[i] by contributing to the deployment of this training program on a global scale.
