Patented and Proven

Firefly technology and methodology has been proven across many residency programs and teaching institutions. In order to reach all medical and surgical learners, we have patent protected several important concepts:

  • Assigning an extrustability score or autonomy score to a medical/surgical professional or trainee
  • An educational data management system (platform) for tracking medical, clinical, and procedural performance
  • Selecting appropriate evaluations based on clinical and surgical situations, including OR schedules
  • Aggregating evaluations and building learning curves
  • Using learning curves to create learning plans
  • Using learning curves to measure surgical and procedural skill, autonomy, and entrustability
  • Using statistical and deep learning models to apply a skill/entrustability score to a medical professional

If you would like to collaborate and/or use these helpful concepts, please feel free to reach out to us. We welcome research, academic, and industry partners to work together for our common goal of optimizing medical education.

Academic Research

At Firefly, we and our collaborators are committed to improving medical education. We have published several peer-reviewed articles and given talks at surgical conferences, showing how an integrated medical platform helps residents learn better and become independent in the O.R. earlier.
