As an introduction to EBSCO Health, a HealthStream courseware partner since 2016, we asked them the following questions.
Can you tell us briefly about your organization and its expertise with healthcare and nursing-specific education?
EBSCO Health is the leading provider of evidence-based clinical decision support solutions, healthcare business intelligence, and peer-reviewed medical research information for the healthcare industry. Our mission is to provide the global healthcare community with the information they need to make informed decisions.
EBSCO Health’s leadership is made up of clinicians committed to improving healthcare. Our editorial faculty includes hundreds of physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and librarians who are experts in evidence-based medicine, nursing, and research. We strive to promote evidence-based medical practice, and because of this our editorial faculty adheres to a strict evidence-based methodology for content creation.
What are some of the big challenges you are helping care organizations address?
- Meeting regulatory standards like those from the Joint Commission
- Achieving Magnet Status
- Promoting evidence-based nursing practice
- Prevention of Serious Reportable Events
- Improving quality outcomes
How are you helping them address these challenges?
EBSCO Health provides users with a wide array of content covering over 50 nursing specialties, leadership, management, culturally competent care, and more. With content that maps to the workflow of the clinician, nurses and allied health professionals are able to quickly and easily find the information they need at the patient’s bedside. In addition, our nearly 1,500 skills and corresponding skill competency checklists allow nurses to master best practices and improve quality outcomes.
Why does a partnership with HealthStream make sense for your organization?
The partnership between HealthStream and EBSCO Health makes sense because HealthStream’s mission of positively impacting healthcare by ensuring the best developed workforce aligns naturally with EBSCO Health’s content and drive to help nurses master best practices and improve quality outcome. The two goals really go hand in hand.
