MedsiteCME goes multimedia

MedsiteCME now incorporates multimedia into its CME case studies, which I think is a terrific idea. From the press release:

    The animated video provides a visual component to existing text-based copy, enabling healthcare professionals to visualize procedures and anatomy in an interactive manner and providing a more enriching learning experience.

    "The addition of multimedia to our case-based CME programs enables our physicians to view and interact with patient video, diagnostic imaging and animated mechanisms that are otherwise unavailable," said Destry Sulkes, M.D., Managing Director of MedsiteCME. "While we can't actually 'see one, do one, teach one' online, this is the next best thing."

I'd be curious to know if many other providers are already doing this, and if it does actually increase learning and retention. I have a call in to find out more behind the decision to go this route, and will let you know what I find out. Or maybe my co-blogger, Anne Taylor-Vaisey, can dig up a study or two about it. I remember reading something somewhere, but can't put my finger on it.
