ProPatient Learning Revolutionizes Patient Education with Interactive Online Learning

Hillsborough, ND, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- ProPatient Learning is unveiling the team, tools and company that revolutionizes how patients interact with healthcare providers. ProPatient is an engaging online and mobile platform offering self-directed interactive education for patients. The tools empower patients with knowledge about important healthcare issues and the right questions to ask providers, helping them become informed advocates for their own healthcare.

ProPatient is a start-up company launched by veteran medical and online educators David Hadden and JoAnne Schaberick. It uses virtual doctors and patient advocates to guide patients through learning scenarios, enabling them to take full advantage of their health care resources.

“There has to be a better way for patients to learn and we believe we’ve developed that platform,” the pair said.

ProPatient is free to patients and can be found at www.propatientlearning.com. The platform allows patients to choose questions they want answered within different topics. Responses are concise, interesting and informative, and users can learn more by choosing follow-up questions. Participants can also take part in role play interactions with virtual doctors and medical staff and prepare themselves for real life situations.

As founder and CEO of TheraSim, the leading simulation solution for physician and HCP education, Hadden has turned his expertise to this new web software training venture focused on patient education.

With more than a decade working on virtual simulation, Hadden’s experience in artificial intelligence, clinical decision support and adult learning bring a new perspective to the challenge of moving patient self-advocacy forward. “TheraSim brought simulation training to more than 150,000 physicians in 190 countries. The outcomes were astonishing and I look forward to bringing that value to patients,” Hadden said.

He cited research that shows patients on average ask only five questions of their doctors and these often include questions such as “Where is the bathroom?” and “Do you validate parking?”

“It takes know-how to be an effective patient,” Hadden said. “There is no way you can understand something as complicated as your health in only five questions.”

Schaberick was motivated by personal experience to join Hadden as co-founder and co-executive in ProPatient after 20 years of experience in learning technology with WebMD, TheraSim and Sun Microsystems.

“Ten years ago I lost my father to pancreatic cancer. Although I worked in medical education, I was overwhelmed and underprepared to take on the caregiver role. I searched everywhere for information and tools to help. Since I was creating programs to educate physicians, I was sure there had to be good resources out there for me and my family. What I found was sorely lacking. That, for me, was the first step in recognizing the need.”

Added Hadden: “I’m confident that we will succeed in bringing badly needed modernization to patient education. The Guttenberg age of handing recently diagnosed patients a pamphlet to learn about their condition and how to manage it is over.”
