About Us

Efficiency Learning Systems Mission:

  • Improve patient care through physician education that measurably improves competence, performance or patient outcomes
  • Maintain high production quality


A Note About Practiced Based Education™:

Over the past several years I have worked with Efficiency Systems, Inc. to create and refine Practice-Based Education™, a tool for professional education in medical imaging.

Practice Based Education™ revolutionizes the quality of imaging education, providing realistic full-featured practice simulation with instant feedback.

Our principles are to provide high quality, engaging programs that emulate the principles of the flight simulator used in aviation: learn through experience in a realistic, but crash-proof environment. We create a medical practice experience, with:

  • Clinical information.
  • Convenient yet complete case display of all images, with full display tools.
  • Opportunity for the participant to formulate a clinical report
  • An authoritative comparison report for reference
  • Clinical follow up, a concise teaching discussion of the case, clinical context, and appropriate scholarly references and information links.
  • Information on physiologic and diagnostic issues involved with the technology and the case.
  • Full compliance with standards for continuing medical education, and any regulatory provisions.


I think you will agree that Practice Based Education™ is a serious, robust practice simulator.

Efficiency Systems, Inc. launched Efficiency Learning Systems (ELS) in 2002. Inspired by the technology used in flight simulators that allow pilots to safely experience a wide range of scenarios during training, ELS  developed Practice Based Education™ programs that present realistic training experiences for physicians and technologists to hone and perfect their skills.
