    Abstract

    We developed a statewide HIV-HCV-STD online education program for timely and effective dissemination of clinical evidence to primary care healthcare providers. For this purpose, we built a large repository of multimedia learning modules, interactive case simulations tools, and other online education resources. We proactively disseminated these resources to clinicians through multiple online platforms and communication channels, and recorded rapid increase in resource usage. We performed analyses on use contexts, identified specific usage patterns, and characterized the correlations between resource usage and promotional activities. Evaluations have shown that clinicians had a very positive feedback of the online education program, intended to use the learned knowledge, and planned to make practice changes. Future studies are required to verify the generalizability of the findings and to identify the covariates that contribute to the program success.
