BETHESDA, Md. – Mayo Clinic is collaborating with Mytonomy, a provider of cloud-based patient education and information solutions, to develop custom microlearning content for cancer patients and their caregivers.
Mytonomy and Mayo Clinic will initially develop short mobile-ready videos that address patient questions and concerns arising during breast cancer treatment. This master library of patient education will be made available to other health systems by license through Mytonomy, which has developed the Patient Experience Cloud platform to drive patient engagement.
“Mayo Clinic is a leader in cancer research, treatment and education, and we are honored to be collaborating to improve the patient experience for cancer patients and their caregivers,” said Anjali Kataria, CEO of Mytonomy, in a statement. “Through our Patient Experience Cloud platform, we can deploy the new microlearning education, track usage and tailor personalized information at scale, thereby touching more lives for the better.”
Leveraging Mayo Clinic’s oncology expertise, the partnership will enable patients to access, absorb and use information in short-burst, focused, engaging, personalized, culturally relevant, self-directed content that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, on any device.
“Recognizing how people learn today, and the unique circumstances of a cancer patient, we are excited to be combining our collective knowledge and expertise to foster patient engagement in ways that make sense for the 21st century patients and their families, and, ultimately, improve satisfaction and clinical outcomes,” said Dr. Sandhya Pruthi, associate medical director of Mayo Clinic Global Business Solutions, in a statement.
