Boston, MA– Doctors are competitive creatures. So could an online game that teaches doctors and nurses about high blood pressure, change patient outcomes?
Well the data is in, and as it turns out, yes it can. Patients whose doctor participated reached their blood pressure goals faster. “The competition proved to be a powerful incentive,” commented B. Price Kerfoot, M.D., Ed.M., study author.
So, next time you see your doc, you may want to find out if he/she has a gamertag.
