What are Cohorts and why use them?

Cohorts saves you time and improves clinician engagement by allowing you to create targeted groups of clinicians.

  • Highly targeted communication to reduce disengagement

  • Easily repeat communications, events invitations and surveys.

  • Full control over who is in it

  • Create as many as you need

  • Add and remove existing users at any time to ensure the cohort is accurate

How does Cohorts work?

The simplest method to use Cohorts is by setting up a group and then adding clinicians into it during the onboarding process. Alternatively you can add clinicians into groups by searching for individuals or by filtering and bulk adding users based on certain attributes like their role.

How to start using cohorts:

Setting up a cohort is very simple in two quick steps:

  1. Set up the Cohort ‘shell’, which is as easy as just choosing a name to reflect your group of users, such as ‘Medical Interns 2022’.

  2. When inviting your users to your site, simply select the Cohort you would like to add them to.

  3. If you have users you want to add to a cohort that already have access to your site, just click into the cohort and 'Add Users' from your user list.

Why is it important to prepare Cohorts before rotations?

The short answer is that you'll be more organised!

Before each rotation it is important that new Cohorts are set up for onboarding to your hospital and also Med App.

What groups should I set up?

Consider who you want to target specifically for communication, education and quality improvement:

  • Role, year and rotation - E.g. Interns - 2022 (6 month)

  • Departments specific cohorts: ED, ICU, Paediatric care, surgery, Locums etc.

  • Combined roles like SMO & Consultants, PHO & REG
