The Importance of Focus
A portion of mental functioning is automatic and effortless. Many errors can result from thinking and decision making that becomes second nature, particularly when one is not focused.
A medical professional’s ability to make the most logical and accurate decisions possible is critical to patient safety. The increasingly complex responsibilities and fast paced roles of medical professionals, who experience regular distractions and interruptions, can cause avoidable medical errors.
It is crucial for learners to master focus, as the ability to focus is a secret element to success that often gets overlooked. The better a learner can fully concentrate on a task, the better the outcome. Positive educational outcomes can decrease medical errors and better ensure patient safety.
Measuring BioMetric Data
The technology behind BioFusion™ enables educators to measure the focus and stress levels of learners, thus adding value to debriefing systems. By allowing educators to see exactly when a learner was not paying attention or was too nervous, BioFusion™ is creating a more efficient way of educating by helping improve the focus of future medical professionals.
BioFusion™ collects physiological data, from devices measuring it, and displays that data in real time. Flags and events are tagged for changes in biometric data allowing educators to know exactly where a learner needs to improve.
In the future it will be critical for these learners to be able to devote their entire focus on a task without being nervous.
