Question normal

Physicians have a vast array of labs and imaging at their disposal, but limited training on how to appropriately order and interpret results. This proposal is for a mobile app educational tool with high-value care questions focused on patient-based scenarios. Teaching points highlight test characteristics for a desired clinical outcome, guideline adherence, and costs. Each mini-lesson takes a few minutes to complete, ideally suited for a “question of the day” before teaching conferences or inpatient rounds. In addition, features such as user comments (e.g. questions, referenced posts) and a “Ditto” icon (analogous to a Facebook “Like” for those who have experienced similar overuse) highlight unnecessary ordering practices in the health system. Users create referenced high value care questions which could be added to the Q-bank upon review. An app allows for frequent, brief reviews of evidence-based practices to produce sustainable changes in ordering habits and spark conversations.
