Partnering with a medical society
Tackling diagnostic delays in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)
Reducing time to DMD diagnosis, which can be 2+ years.
Together with the expertise of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and its members, we developed an educational program designed to improve participants' ability to identify possible DMD and refer for specialist investigation and diagnosis.
In addition, HCPs were engaged in discussions around optimal DMD management, multidisciplinary approaches, and emerging therapeutic options - including gene therapy and how this is different from conventional drug therapy.
DMD experts were brought into discussion with multidisciplinary physicians less familiar with the rare condition, enabling peer-to-peer learning and sharing of real-world cases:
- Family physicians
MedShr fostered debate and discussion in a secure digital forum through case-based education tailored to specialists and generalists:
- Digital forum to connect physicians across a range of clinical specialties and settings
- Clinical case series with rising complexity
- Nuances in clinical care decisions
MedShr's medical education programs are tailored, localized, and targeted
Case Studies: Targeted Medical Education
Forum for Doctors
With rare diseases, medical education is critical to accelerating diagnosis and referral, and improving patient outcomes.
In this case-based medical education program, pediatricians, nephrologists, endocrinologists and family doctors came together in a digital case discussion forum to share their approaches to challenges in early detection of X-linked hypophospahtemia (XLH).
Pancreatic Cancer: Insights from KOLs
In pancreatic cancer and other rapidly evolving therapy areas, doctors are faced with an overwhelming amount of data. In this program, we connected oncologists, radiologists and hospitalists in a secure online forum on MedShr to reflect the cases they see in clinical practice. We then invited KOLs to share their insights about the implications of new data on diagnosis and management of patients.
900k HCPs reached
Online medical education often fails to reach HCPs where it's needed most. With this ground-breaking program, we made a significant impact on patient care in LMICs, with over 903,400 doctors and community health workers engaging with free, open-access, mobile-first education in malaria, sickle cell disease, leprosy, antimicrobial resistance, ophthalmology, HIV and other high burden conditions.
