EthosCE Analytics Spotlight: Scheduled Report Deliveries

While the ability to schedule automated report deliveries may seem like a relatively insignificant component of a CME management platform, the flow of critical information between key members of staff determines the efficacy of CME strategy development and the success of its implementation.

Your team can’t afford to wait for manually generated data updates.

Without data transparency and streamlined communications between program stakeholders, CME management and curriculum development choices may be based on outdated, incomplete, or inaccurate information. CME Directors need a system in place that automates critical administrative tasks that have a direct impact on your organization’s ability to achieve its educational goals. When reports on key data are compiled manually, there’s a delay between the time when information becomes relevant and when stakeholders can receive a report. Since the amount of time that it takes to create a report, distribute it, and ensure that all concerned parties have received and read the document may vary, your organization’s workflow may be negatively impacted.

This could lead to the following issues:

  • Team members could make decisions based on incomplete information, clashing with each other over policies based on different data.
  • Your staff may become unable to enact the policy directives that you set based on the latest insights and use guesswork to carry out the tasks that they assume you want them to complete.
  • You may waste time briefing your team on updates to critical data that are relevant to urgent concerns while time-sensitive issues worsen.

When reports can be automatically generated and scheduled ahead of time, your entire staff will have access to the information that they need as it becomes relevant.

Automatically reports help limit workflow interruptions

A generic LMS does not offer the features that you need to make data-driven curriculum development, marketing, and human resource management decisions. The EthosCE Analytics suite allows your team to have instant access to real-time and historical course and user data, enabling you to schedule automated reports that help each department in your organization maintain workflow and operate more autonomously, empowered by up-to-the-minute insights.

Using the analytics suite you can generate and schedule reports which:

  • Compare learner assessment performance at the aggregate and individual learner levels.
  • Examine learner assessment performance patterns at the course and individual response levels.
  • View LMS engagement rates over time
  • Show the completion status for users at each course step.
  • Show credits earned by user type
  • Review support ticket data for persistent LMS usability issues

Stop managing your data and start harvesting insights

Data that is collected and distributed manually is often rife with inaccuracies, introducing errors at the start of the decision-making process and causing long-term strategy building issues. EthosCE Analytics does “double duty” for CME Directors, managing the collection, analysis and distribution of data and relevant insights. With EthosCE, all of your relevant course and user data is automatically scraped from your LMS and available to you in your customizable admin dashboard—that means no more worries about manual data entry errors, incomplete data sets, or late report deliveries. You won’t have to wrangle spreadsheets to view accurate information on the historical impact of your management choices or the real-time status of learner outcomes.

In addition, EthosCE Analytics offers an advanced data visualization feature, allowing you to generate customized graphic representations of data summaries with a click.

With scheduled report delivery, you have one less administrative task to do, and more time to strategize for your program’s growth.
