Assessments for clinical professionals in the health sciences

Target highly skilled individuals with the professional mindset and reasoning skills to deliver quality care across your clinical specialties. INSIGHT Health Professional is calibrated for highly skilled clinicians who make high stakes decisions about patient care, who provide specialized services to patients or who manage departments.

Poorly reasoned decisions have major consequences in health care. That’s why hospitals and medical centers need to find and develop health professionals who can think well, communicate well and who are committed to providing quality care.

Talent Spotting and Development in Health Care

Health care organizations must be confident they are developing a high performing clinical staff. Reasoning skills and mindset are measurable competencies.  INSIGHT Health Professional test items are set in clinical and professional practice contexts that challenge test takers to apply their clinical reasoning skills.  Comprehensive individual reports enable health care organizations to:

  • Foster strong decision making skills and professionalism competencies for all staff members.
  • Proactively identify strengths and weaknesses  in the  key skills and attributes that lead to quality patient care
  • Identify performance potential  and determine an individual’s fit for future roles and leadership

INSIGHT Health Professional is a complete on-the-job solution; it provides valuable objective metrics for the prescreening evaluations of new employees and for ongoing staff development programs focused on strengthening competencies.  Assessments are easily administered via our secure, encrypted, online, multi-lingual interface through internal corporate intranets or your Learning Management Systems.

INSIGHT Health Professional measures:

Health Professional Mindset

  • INSIGHT Health Professional assesses the professional attributes identified as desirable in clinicians with strength in clinical reasoning: truthseeking, open-mindedness, analyticity, systematicity, confidence in reasoning, inquisitiveness and maturity of judgment. To determine whether a person manifests these important attributes INSIGHT Health Professional surveys the person’s beliefs and attitudes.  The person’s responses are gathered, sorted, and scored to produce a profile of the thinking mindset with which the person approaches problem solving and decision making. Each mindset attribute is then characterized as not-manifested, positive, or strongly positive.

  • Group reports display aggregated statistics and bar-charts on each INSIGHT metric. These reports have many uses including guiding employee development initiatives over time, comparing different groups engaged in similar tasks at a given organizational level or aiding in the establishment of threshold skill levels to qualify candidates for interviews.
