India’s first initiative in public health to build a case-based simulation learning platform for critical care was launched by Ranjit Singh, Haryana’s Minister for Energy, at the Integrated Holistic Health Summit of Civil 20 (C20) at Amrita Hospital in Faridabad recently.
The DiShA Platform, (short for Digital Shiksha for Advanced Clinical Capacity Building) is India’s first case-based simulation learning platform for critical care in public health. USAID funded and Jhpiego implemented RISE (Reaching Impact, Saturation, and epidemic Control) project’s DiShA platform is developed in collaboration with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, and Amrita Hospitals.
The DiShA platform offers several features to bridge the competency gaps amongst healthcare providers. These include a platform for teaching and assessment of cognitive and skills-based content, social learning methodologies and learning analytics.
After extensive field tests, the platform is now ready to be rolled out in 60 hubs and 2070 Spokes in the USAID RISE network of hospitals across India. Jhpiego and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham will facilitate the training of trainers and administrators
