Where Healthcare Professionals Come to Learn
The resources necessary to develop and implement multifaceted initiatives are seldom found in a single provider or organization. A successful partnership motivates organizations to grow individually and collectively while developing the best education possible. IPMA's collaborative education process brings together the experience, resources, and strengths of each partner to design and implement educational initiatives ranging in scope from local to international. We excel at identifying the right partners for a successful project, building and sustaining lasting relationships, managing timelines, and providing relevant, practical project management skills.
IPMA has extensive experience in leading multi-organization collaboratives.
IPMA collaborated with AboutHealth to develop a series of Telehealth videos to distribute to AbouthHealth's member systems - Aspirus, Advocate Aurora, Bellin, Gundersen, ProHealth, & ThedaCare. The series was entitled Caring Differently: Optimizing Health through Telehealth. IPMA produced and certified 10 clinician videos, two patient videos, and numerous resources for clinicians. Examples of this collaboration are included below. Interested in project collaboration? Contact us today!
This was the ninth in a series of ten videos aimed at improving telehealth visits. The goal of this video was to help clinicians incorporate some motivational interviewing techniques and tools into their telehealth patient visits. The OARS communication technique can help with successful communication.
This patient video educates patients about the benefits of telehealth visits.
Along with the videos in the Caring Differently: Optimizing Health Through Telemedicine, a number of tools were created to reinforce the education. The OARS Communication Technique is shown as an example of a tool from this series.
