Healthcare Employee Development: You don’t have time to do it the old way!

Today’s healthcare employees face multiple demands—between ensuring competency and developing future leaders, they must accomplish much more in much less time.

The HealthStream Learning Center (HLC) allows employees to better manage their time and development because training is available 24/7. This can help optimize the education and development of your entire workforce. With full-time access to over 20,000 courses, as well as powerful automation and valuable reporting, employees are empowered to learn skills that improve performance and increase competency while minimizing errors.

The healthcare landscape is constantly evolving, so shouldn’t your learning do the same? Traditional classroom instruction is often the least efficient and most costly and inconsistent way to present development.  

Besides being time and cost effective, the options available through the HLC standardize and improve educational across your organization, say many of our 4.4 million users.

 

“The HealthStream Learning Center, authoring tools, and video have allowed McLaren Health Care to have a more standardized approach of providing education, training, assessments, and compliance while creating a more centralized organization,” said Connie McFarland, RN, BSN, MSA, Corporate Supervisor , McLaren University.

 

Moreover, the system is designed for specifically for healthcare applications and for ease of use and individualized training needs, which give you the capacity for improving multiple processes within your organization.

“The HealthStream Learning Center (HLC) combined with the HealthStream Competency Center (HCC), helps us to manage all of our educational and regulatory needs in one simple, easy-to-use location. It allows for our staff to spend less time in the classroom, and more time caring for the health of our patients and community,” said Brenda Carter, Learning Coordinator, Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services.
