RealCME and Liquid Grids Announce Strategic Partnership to Provide A Powerful Shared Decision-Making Platform

liquidcridsDecember 1, 2014 – RealCME and Liquid Grids have formed an exclusive partnership to offer the CE/CME community tools to impact the shared decision-making process between patients and the health care team. The tools are based on computational linguistics and natural language processing of disease-focused social media dialogue. This type of social media analysis provides faculty with meaningful insights and highly relevant information as they seek to educate providers about optimally engaging their patients in care plan discussions. These insights include:

  • Words and phrases typically used by patients
  • Concerns often discussed with friends and family
  • Practical barriers patients may face
  • Specific issues patients may have regarding interactions with their providers

In addition, custom patient-directed digital educational modules can be developed on the platform incorporating these shared decision-making insights and distributed online through a hyper-targeted approach, connecting the education with the precise patient “persona.”

This partnership simplifies the complexity of online disease-focused dialogue and makes it actionable for educators, providing an effective, efficient, and scalable approach to engaging both healthcare providers and patients in the shared decision-making process. It brings together the social media intelligence expertise of Liquid Grids with RealCME’s advanced instructional design and analytic capabilities to address a critical need in improving health outcomes.
