Online health learning available to Vermonters

VERMONT — OneCare Vermont has partnered with statewide health organizations to launch Vermont Health Learn (VTHL), an online learning system for Vermonters and health care providers. The system was developed in collaboration with the Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Blueprint for Health within the Department of Vermont Health Access.
The platform gives program leaders and participants an online hub for course materials and discussions, and it also offers a live, virtual meeting space for classes.
The Health Department has been working with UVM Medical Center’s Community Health Improvement and the Blueprint to transition Blueprint-funded self-management and prevention programming from in-person to online, providing increased program accessibility. “Vermont Health Learn is simple enough for just about anyone to use. This is incredibly important to the Diabetes Prevention Program because our participants come from a wide range of backgrounds, ages, education levels, and technological experiences,” said O’Reilly.
In addition, the Blueprint is using Vermont Health Learn for their statewide Medication Assisted Treatment Learning Collaborative, which supports the Blueprint’s nationally recognized Hub and Spoke model for treating people with opioid use disorder.

Participants in the course can access recordings, slides and handouts easily and on their own schedule after the virtual training sessions.
Many learners are enrolled in multiple Vermont Health Learn courses. “It’s been helpful to have multiple educational offerings happening in one spot, and under one login account per user,” said Brianna Nalley, project administrator at the Blueprint.
OneCare is offering a diverse range of courses to benefit clinicians and the community, including Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Best Practices course, where experts from across Vermont present best practices for diagnosing and treating patients with asthma and COPD. Adoption of best practices will, in turn, support Vermont in improving quality of care for patients and attaining progress in the state’s population health goals as detailed within the All-Payer Model agreement.
OneCare participants can access training modules for data and reporting tools including the COVID-19 Care Coordination Prioritization App, a tool OneCare developed to help clinicians identify Vermonters who are at greatest risk for COVID-19.
