Online academy for healthcare professionals

OMRON is a Japanese technology company that is active in the healthcare sector. OMRON is known for its blood pressure monitors and nebulisers.

OMRON Healthcare asked us to develop an online academy for healthcare professionals that focuses on health issues such as high blood pressure and respiratory problems. Besides working in their busy jobs, healthcare employees must also gain accreditation points every year. That is now also possible online at the OMRON Academy. At the Academy, the healthcare employees can take part in short learning interventions based on particular themes. Mobile first, so that they can learn wherever and whenever it suits them.

Shortly after launch, healthcare professionals in more than ten countries are active in the online academy.

OMRON Academy’s main menu has been specially designed for large volumes of information. The design was inspired by streaming services such as Netflix so that users can easily navigate through the material. In the ‘high blood pressure’ health category, healthcare professionals can take part in short learning interventions of 10 to 15 minutes.

Self-test and certificate

We use storytelling in all of our learning interventions. By telling a patient’s story, healthcare employees can identify with the patient and their existing knowledge. Every subject concludes with a short self-test. When healthcare professionals have passed a test, they are awarded a certificate for that subject. That information is then saved in their profile and can be downloaded.

Endorsed by medical associations

The content of the learning interventions is endorsed by medical associations such as ESH and BISH. Registration is free. OMRON Healthcare wants the content to be available for healthcare providers around the world. Healthcare professionals in more than ten countries are now active in the online academy.

Together with OMRON Healthcare, we are constantly improving the online academy. We analyse the channels through which users find us and where they drop out. We also ask users for feedback. We use that input to optimise the content, format and technique.
