EthosCE Analytics Spotlight: Advanced Notification System

EthosCE Analytics Spotlight: Advanced Notification System

Access to up-to-the-minute data is a key determinant of the success of every decision-making process: poor decisions are based on flawed data. However, even with excellent access to your CME program’s critical insights, keeping your team informed and making sure that stakeholders view the right data can be a challenge.

What does an advanced notification do?

An advanced notification system allows:

  • You and your team to stay informed without interrupting workflow for meetings or waiting for responses to email chains
  • Specific alerts to reach key staff members at selected times—ensuring that they receive only the information that is pertinent to their current task list
  • You to tag notifications based on their immediate relevance—alleviating the need to highlight selected insights in a large document.

5 Reasons Why You Need an Advanced Notification System

1. You don’t want to take another meeting.
Unlike a report, a notification provides a quick summary of changes in relevant data in bite-sized format: your team can become informed of important news with a glance.

2. Sometimes your team really didn’t get the memo.
The quality of decision-making within the CME organization depends on every stakeholder having equal access to the latest program data.

3. You actually are too busy to send out another email.
An enterprise-grade CME platform—such as EthosCE Analytics—automates customized notifications, allowing teams instant access to changes in the data—or content—that they need to make time-sensitive decisions.

4. You know better than to collect and analyze program data manually.
Data-driven decision-making is impossible when data reporting is of poor quality. Manually collected data is often corrupted by human error, and it is time-consuming to compile.

5. Evidence-driven strategy building is vital to you.
Automated data updates allow CME directors to be proactive in their policymaking, allowing them to develop a long-range strategy based on real-time data that is cleanly collected and rich in insights.

What Happens When Updates Aren’t Timely

Timing is critical in distributing new data, but the constraints of manual data collection and analysis make the creation of timely updates a challenge. When CME directors and their teams make decisions with different levels of data access and data quality, policies are created based on competing visions of the status of the CME program, creating confusion and misdirected practices. CME strategy built on outdated or incomplete information ensures that faulty premises are baked into program policy, creating long-term, repetitive issues that may take years to be revealed.

Which Data Can You Track?

With EthosCE, you have incredible flexibility in the types of data you can track using the advanced notification system. Here are just some of the data that you can keep tabs on:

  • New registrations
  • Disenrollment
  • Learner assessment scoring
  • Support ticket requests
  • Time spent per activity and individual activity component
  • Time spent per assessment and per assessment question
  • Support ticket requests

You can also create custom data segments that allow you to monitor patterns that you have discovered in course, LMS usage, and learner behavior data. These may include:

  • User course completion rates by years of professional experience
  • Learner assessment scores before and after changes in activities content
  • Shifts in the demographics of new registrants
  • Changes in learner feedback between set dates
  • The number of new learners referred to your LMS via a specific URL

With the EthosCE LMS, you aren’t limited to the above, or any other prescribed list of data segments. You can update your notifications based on your needs.
