EchoNous launches Kosmos Universal Platform (UP), a specialized software platform, helps educators streamline and automate the process of teaching POCUS, specifically ultrasound scanning—an emerging and critical skill for modern-day medicine.
The platform integrates EchoNous’s Kosmos handheld device with the online portal, leveraging innovative AI applications built within the tools. Kosmos UP manages educational workflow, reduces grading time, and streamlines feedback for the students and researchers. The recent pandemic has thrown additional challenges with schools now facing faculty shortages within a remote learning environment; the platform makes it easier for educators to catch up and exceed expectations.
Dr. Robert Jones, Assistant Dean for Clerkship Education-MHMC, Professor, Emergency Medicine, CWRU, The MetroHealth System, said: “Kosmos UP is going to completely revolutionize the educational platform. It will benefit not just learners, but also the faculty by facilitating remote ultrasound learning and managing the workflow solution of the exam data—it’s a complete game-changer.”
Through the platform, instructors can annotate reports seamlessly, allowing for more time spent mentoring and less on document review and grading scans. It allows educators to easily track students’ quantity of acquired images and facilitate interpretation of scans at individual and group levels. This feature enhances the ability to assess students with intelligent performance analytics, allowing curricula programs customized to specific needs.
Kevin Goodwin, CEO, EchoNous, said: “The future of medical innovation begins with the next generation of doctors, and we created Kosmos UP with them in mind. Our goal was to create a platform that would help get medical students to ultrasound proficiency faster and free their instructors to focus more on mentorship than grading. Kosmos UP is the result, and we couldn’t be happier to see it rolling out now.”
