Archive hospital ward rounds’ insights with live videos

Ward rounds are a key component of medical education for healthcare professionals. They provide doctors an avenue to learn from one another and stay up to date in evolving medical areas which may be outside their own core practice. Healthcare professionals usually focus on a particular topic or an interesting case in ward rounds. They are also sometimes used to disseminate new research information.

Insights from ward rounds were usually documented and shared with people who were unable to attend the round and with juniors who joined subsequently. Now, ward rounds can be shared and archived via Workplace live videos. 

“I feel that Workplace has brought everybody closer. Our staff really like it that they have a place to share with everybody”. Frank Ong, director of HR and L&D, IMH

Benefits / Impact of Workplace

  • Enhanced community learning with the use of Workplace live video feature to record discussions; employees who were not present can participate through comments 
  • Increased knowledge base within the hospital community 
  • Increased cross-functional sharing and learning 

Do it in your organisation in 3 easy steps:

  1. Create a closed group for your Department where resources and updates will be shared. 
  2. Go live in the closed group so that team members who are unable to attend will be able to join the meeting.
  3. Share with new joiners relevant ward rounds videos that are archived in the group.
