Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) September 28, 2006
Learn.com®, the global leader in on-demand workforce productivity, announced today that Amedisys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMED) one of America's leading home health nursing companies, has implemented the LearnCenter® Workforce Productivity Suite to provide on-demand compliance and career development tools to its geographically dispersed employees. With its headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Amedisys operates sites across 17 states.
“We have had significant growth over the last year, doubling in size. That alone poses an interesting challenge for a company as heavily regulated as Amedisys. We implemented an on-demand solution that would manage training for more people with the current staff, while providing robust reporting capabilities out-of-the-box. The LearnCenter Workforce Productivity Suite hosts a broad array of online and instructor-led courses on a variety of topics including HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, Medicare Compliance, and enables career development, orientations, business development training, management of nursing and therapy, continuing education hours, and much more. Our goal is to offer a significant amount of our training in an electronic format, accessible from any Web browser,” said Lu Post, Vice President of Training and Development at Amedisys.
“The LearnCenter is also helping Amedisys plan for the future with built-in succession planning and career laddering tools and the system is integrated with our UltiPro HR system,” said Post. “LearnCenter has everything we were looking for in a complete suite. All components were contained in one package instead of various components other vendors would have required we purchase separately. Most of the other vendors could not even offer authoring capabilities, but LearnCenter’s authoring tool is built-in and ready for use without programming skills. We also purchased Learn.com’s CourseMaker Studio Authoring Suite so that we could develop low bandwidth multimedia courseware that are easily tracked within the LearnCenter.”
“We are happy we chose Learn.com as our training partner. They are a top-notch organization from the top down. In my opinion, Learn.com is a one-stop shop for workforce productivity and their solutions, implementation methodology, training, and support are world-class. Moreover, the company also has one of the largest and most tightly nit user communities in the industry,” said Post.
The award-winning LearnCenter is the first and only complete workforce productivity suite on the market today. LearnCenter enables the creation, delivery, management and tracking of any enterprise-wide human capital or e-learning initiative, whether in the classroom or online. LearnCenter creates a cost effective, high quality training, development and measurement environment designed to provide users never before visibility into and control of their career planning while providing management with real-time business intelligence.
