H.Prime 2 is not a Learning Management System (LMS), but rather a Requirement and Rotation Management System designed to enhance learning. It can integrate with any LMS and work in parallel by providing a broadened scope of medical education and training for your organisation.
It is distinct by such criteria as:
|LMS (Learning Management System)||H.Prime 2|
|An LMS is a course management system mainly designed to cater to the needs of online learning in universities where courses are the central focus.||H.Prime 2 is a training & requirement management application specifically designed for hospitals where junior doctors are trained and requirement management for doctors is the central focus. H.Prime 2 works in parallel with an existing LMS.|
|An LMS is typically an off-the-shelf product not specifically suited for training hospitals and loaded with unnecessary features.||H.Prime 2 is specifically designed for hospital training, with only useful features to provide an easy to use, efficient management platform for training.|
|An LMS uses generic terminology and technical jargon which can easily deviate the focus of administrators and trainees from what they need.||H.Prime 2 contains specific terminology used by Australian hospitals so that administrators, trainees and other users can focus on what they need.|
|An LMS burdens an administrator with too much administrative work to manage courses, activities and users.||H.Prime 2 provides powerful, easy administrative functions. For example, hundreds of rotations for hundreds of trainees can be added in a single click using rotation templates.|
|An LMS has no provision to create and assign requirements of trainees in bulk, forcing the administrator to go to each course and create activities specific for it.||H.Prime 2 provides easy requirement management
with advanced automated features: set criteria and apply, and the system will automatically match the criteria and add requirements to trainee portfolios wherever applicable.
|An LMS’s resources are managed under each course which is ideal for a university but not for hospital trainees.||H.Prime 2’s resources are managed centrally and the respective audience will get the resources automatically on their profile.|
|An LMS does not have a portfolio where trainees or their supervisor can see every detail and activities by the trainee.||H.Prime 2 includes the Trainee Portfolio, where a trainee or their supervisor can see every detail such as contact information, rotation details, overdue or near-due requirements, learning plan summary, requirements statuses, email communication, other activities, documents and printable/exportable portfolio format.|
|An LMS has no rostering module to manage shifts for junior doctors.||H.Prime 2 includes an integrated comprehensive rostering module to manage shifts for junior doctors.|
|An LMS is designed by experts who see things as ‘one size fits all’.||H.Prime 2 is designed by healthcare industry experts who believe every industry has their own needs.|
|An LMS has limited page/dashboard panels which limits
the efficiency of users by not grouping important information and tasks.
|H.Prime 2 includes action-based dashboard panels which highlights areas where a trainee needs attention, such as forms to submit, new messages received, overdue learning plans, and newly shared resources.|
