Competency Management

Our Competency Center is delivered on the same platform as the HealthStream Learning Center, has a foundation in well-respected competency theory, and was developed by clinical experts to meet the unique needs of healthcare organizations. It’s flexible, scalable, and customizable to meet the varied needs of any healthcare organization and improve outcomes.

  • Competency Library – Our library of over 3,400 validated clinical and non-clinical competencies across the continuum of care is unmatched by any other competency management system
  • Multiple Validation Methods – Because the Competency Center is built on the same platform as the Learning Center, you are able to assign learning, checklists, and other methods of validation.
  • Healthcare-specific Tools, Reporting, and Tracking – Pre-built, customized reports make it easier to manage risk and provide data to regulatory and accrediting bodies.

Checklist Management

No more lost paperwork. No more filing of ripped and coffee-stained hard copies. No more manual tracking of completions. Automate and improve any educational initiative with HealthStream's Checklist Management.

  • Automated Checklists, Reporting, and Tracking – Move from cumbersome manual processes to a simple online solution with immediate access to completion rates.  Access simple reports on completions and make checklist data meaningful with aggregate results. 
  • Integrated – Assign checklists using standard HealthStream Core functionality. Employees see their assigned checklist with all other assigned activities and events.  Checklist completions are displayed on employee transcripts.
  • Standardized – Pre-screened, qualified evaluators can be associated with each checklist, and made viewable to employees so they know which evaluators are approved to complete their checklist.
  • Enhanced Learning –  This method of validating technical skills moves beyond testing knowledge.  Prepare evaluators with additional tools like coaching prompts and the ability to assign targeted learning, making the checklist experience more valuable

Measure what Matters: Ensuring an Effective Healthcare Competency Program

Healthcare organizations understand that they need to evaluate the competency of their staff. Big changes happening in the healthcare industry continue to sharpen the focus on competency programs. As the industry gets even more serious about delivering patient-centered, value-based care, nurses and other staff members are facing new responsibilities and learning requirements. They must attain higher levels of education and competency in order to meet challenging clinical care and business goals. These developments, along with the constantly changing nature of healthcare delivery, make it an ideal time to review competency programs, competency assessment goals, and create strategies targeted toward building and maintaining an advanced workforce.

Prior to HealthStream, we had a paper process that was incredibly difficult to use. With HealthStream, I'm now able to run reports and when joint commission or the state walk in, I have all the data on hand.
