In its quest for continued improvement in medical education, DLSHSI’s College of Medicine entered into an agreement with tech company Notesfirst Inc., which has developed an application that serves as an electronic platforms for documenting and storing patients’ medical records.
The agreement, which was signed by DLSHSI and Notesfirst, Inc., will cover one year of partnership from June 1, 2016 – May 31, 2017, where CM faculty and 100 of its medical students will be able to use Notesfirst’s application in their patient history and physical examination activities. At the end of the trial, the users will provide feedback to the developers which will be used in the further enhancement of the application.
To the College of Medicine, this is an opportunity for the faculty of the college to experience how technology can further enhance their teaching and learning activities during their clinical rotations.
College Dean Dr. Madeleine Sosa is hopeful of what the partnership will contribute to the development of the students’ skills as well as the faculty’s.
Patricia Jay Lopez, chief executive officer of Notesfirst.Inc. shared her excitement in working with the College and is grateful for the opportunity. She hopes that the partnership can transform not only the lives of the doctors but also their patients’.
