Bradenton, FloridaÂCare2Learn, a national provider of online training and continuing education for healthcare professionals, continues to Grow E-learning Solutions with Enhanced Healthcare Library. In so doing, it has also found that the development of continuing education courses and in-services is vital to their market niche.
E-learning solutions increase the functionality of educating, training, testing, reporting and tracking employees' success. And to quote a phrase within the E-learning industry, "Content is King."
"Even our largest clients, employers with 5,000 employees or more, find that outsourcing of content development is needed to meet the demands of their healthcare educational systems," says Jeanne Christian COO and partner of Care2Learn."Many post-acute care companies request new courses from us versus development in-house. As reimbursement challenges occur, these companies do not have the time or the expertise to produce engaging, effective, online content for learning management systems technology."
Care2Learn's course library has grown within mandated areas such as HIPAA, Infection Control, and computer software training. Other subject matter includes clinical courses such as Neuropathic Ulcers, Hand Evaluation and Incontinence. Obesity and Nutrition training are vital topics in any healthcare setting today. Rapid changes to training and education on Alzheimer's disease, requires the busy healthcare professional to turn to E-learning solutions for the latest updates. Also, a recent series on Spinal Management has been very popular in the healthcare world.
"We listen to our clients around the country, many of whom are operating ever-changing businesses in states requiring more continuing education. Many states are increasing mandatory education for relicensure, which means that therapists, nurses, dietitians and administrators everywhere must keep up with new reimbursement methods and clinical protocols", says Edie Deane, CAO and partner of Care2Learn. "When appropriate, we believe that offering contact hours to these individuals is crucial. E-learning is a fast-growing resource for the health care professional, which has become evident in our own growth at Care2Learn."
Care2Learn's client base has tripled as a result of expansion into home health, assisted living, and the rehabilitation staffing industry. This expansion places Care2Learn in the position of quickly learning about the post-acute care educational needs of employees.
"Effective online management and leadership training is often requested due to turnover in front-line staff, requiring mentoring programs to enhance their syllabus," says Christian. "E-learning courses assist in this plan very well. Finding the time to develop coursework materials internally can be quite challenging. Using Care2Learn's library and authors can save time and cost."
