Skokie, IL (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
Upstairs Solutions LTC announces an online training partnership with Provena Senior Services, providing specialized content to staff at their 16 long-term care and senior residential facilities.
Like many contemporary healthcare organizations, Provena had been using online training for instruction and performance management of their employees for two years. However, they found that the instructional materials available in the acute-care e-Learning market were not appropriate for the challenges and skill sets of their senior-care workers. Upstairs Solutions' acclaimed library of multimedia online courses was specifically developed for long-term care and assisted living organizations, and were integrated into the third-party Learning Management System (LMS) used by Provena.
"Now we have the best of both worlds," said Wendell Provost, Provena Senior Services Vice President for Human Resources, Risk, and Facility Management. "We can deliver cost-effective, best-in-class training to our senior-care employees, while maintaining a single LMS platform across the entire health system"
According to Paul Fabbi, the Information Services Site Manager for Provena Health, "Upstairs Solutions' use of web technology is superb. We have had no difficulty using the courses on our thin-client network, and our LMS content specialist raved about simplicity of deploying their materials."
"We are delighted with the success of this project," added Tamar Abell, principal of Upstairs Solutions. "We're proud to have partnered with Provena Senior Services to demonstrate this innovative delivery model."
