Why Skill-Driven Learning Changes Behaviors  

Knowing something rarely changes one’s behavior. One must feel confident they have the skill to apply that knowledge, in the right situations, without causing harm. That’s when their behavior changes.


Skill development is the proven way to overcome these barriers to change. It’s used effectively in the military, aviation, business, and medical education. It’s a great fit for pharmaceutical brands too.

Skill-Driven Approach Valued by HCPs

  • The Proven Approach is hands-on practice, with a coach or mentor providing expert feedback.  
  • It's highly personalized. HCPs practice making decisions and recognize patterns of expert thinking via nuanced coaching.
  • The underlying learning methodologies for skill-driven learning are very different from those used to acquire knowledge. 

 Technology to Scale Skill-Driven Engagement

  • While highly effective, it’s impractical and expensive to scale personalized coaching with clinical experts. 
  • That’s why AliveSim was designed to replicate this personalized experience using scalable, virtual technology.   
  • The Result. An economical way for clinicians to develop the competence and confidence to adopt new medical strategies with your brand. 

The Cognitive Science of Skill Development

Practice with coaching is the essential part of the adult learning continuum that accelerates knowledge transfer to real-world situations.  (That's behavior change!)

Measure Results

AliveSim captures thousands of learner decisions to measure how well they performed in realistic clinical situations.

Analytics Built In - Not an Afterthought

Measurement components are proactively built into each clinical decision, based on performance gaps identified by your team.  


What AliveSim Captures: 

  • Clinical preferences when more than one option is appropriate.
  • Decisions that required the most corrective mentoring (63% of learner decisions, on average, require mentoring)
  • Suboptimal or inappropriate actions learners choose in specific clinical situations
  • Cohort analysis for differences in performance by profession, specialty, and experience level.
