Scrimmage CEO, Derek Lundsten, featured on Dr. Gene Beed’s Podcast from San Francisco
Derek Lundsten, Chief Executive Officer of Scrimmage, a state-of-the-art mobile learning technology firm, recently appeared on Dr. Gene Beed’s Podcast, Grumpy Old Doc, from San Francisco.
Dr. Gene Beed is a renowned physician, author and former medical consultant with the State of California, Department of Health Care Services.
As the premise of his show, Dr. Beed notes, “the healthcare system is broken. We need to both fix it and break it further.” His fascinating segments touch on ways to improve healthcare today, by talking with doctors, patients and entrepreneurs.
During this lively segment, Dr. Beed, as a physician, recounts his own skepticism with the required distance learning coursework and its mundane delivery. In speaking with Derek, exciting new ways of delivery are discussed via mobile technology, new methods of engagement and new modalities of training to make the content more meaningful and more personalized. As Derek notes, “at Scrimmage, we think through who our client is looking to target, if it’s field-based, if it’s an internal, or external audience, and so forth. It is essential to properly frame the given content to the demographic and make it engaging.”
The future of training, and CME (continuing medical education) coursework, is also reviewed. Dr. Beed reinforces his hope that the ways in which mobile is used in everyone’s daily lives will translate to the same user interaction, accessibility and engagement for patient care and training, along with robust data management and analytics on the backend. Derek continues Dr. Beed’s point, by reiterating that “such data will further show KPIs, cost savings, and more; it will be data that every segment of the organization will utilize.”
