Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) October 13, 2003
Housecall Medical Resources, a premiere provider of home health, IV infusion, respiratory therapy, medical equipment, and hospice services, announces a new benefit for all employees http://www.HousecallUniversity.com. The customized Learning Management System was created by Care2Learn.com, a national provider of online training and continuing education for healthcare professionals. Housecall Medical Resources and Care2Learn have developed the online solution with the functionality of educating, training, testing, reporting and tracking training of all 2000 plus employees.
ÂThis is a first time venture for Housecall in automating a blended learning model for our training and orientation program,Â says John Heller, CEO of Housecall Medical Resources. ÂThe online university is a great tool for enhancing our education and training efforts at all of our locations as we grow and change in the marketplace. It helps to create efficiencies throughout our education program without over-utilizing limited resources. Our Regional Educators will launch our newly developed orientation program. Then we will continue to offer the classroom or live sessions for additional relevant materials as needed for our staff.Â
Housecall also obtained access to Care2LearnÂs accredited courses for their nurses located in 5 states. ÂThis is a wonderful benefit for our nursing staff. We have provided for them at no cost the opportunity to obtain contact hours online at http://www.HousecallUniversity.com 24 hours daily, 7 days a week,Â says Bill Edwards, VP, Clinical Services for Housecall.
ÂE-Learning is a tremendous resource for health care professionalsÂ, said Laura More, one of Care2Learn.comÂs founders. ÂThe flexibility of the Internet gives the busy healthcare provider an easy, convenient and cost-effective way to stay current and maintain licensure. Being able to control where, when, and how long the training/learning takes place is invaluable.Â With Housecall University, Care2Learn now has over 25,000 registered students.
