The partnership between CERTPOINT Systems and Medcom Trainex will streamline the process of finding and delivering the necessary educational training programs for healthcare providers.
“We are thrilled to enter into a new partnership with CERTPOINT Systems. They have an excellent, robust Learning Management Platform that is already being used by several healthcare entities. Our courses, designed specifically for healthcare employees, will enable CERTPOINT Systems to provide a full solution to their clients, and at the same time enable Medcom to have a greater reach in the healthcare field. The partnership is a great match for both companies,” said Robert A. Santanello, National Accounts Director of the Distance Learning Department for Medcom Trainex, Inc.
Since the new administration in Washington, D.C. took effect earlier this year, a great deal of pressure has been placed on the healthcare industry to meet various policies and training requirements. With the increase of regulations and a decrease in personnel and budgets, the healthcare industry is researching and implementing new ways to deliver these stringent requirements in a fast and highly effective manner. Through the use of CERTPOINT’s all-in-one enterprise learning platform, CERTPOINTVLS, in conjunction with Medcom Trainex’s extensive course catalog, hospitals and healthcare providers are armed with the tools and procedures necessary to conform to such demands in a cost effective manner.
“Certainly, solutions that offer healthcare organizations a cost-efficient approach to training will be welcome by the industry,” said Josh Bersin, president of Bersin & Associates, a research and advisory firm focused on enterprise learning and talent management. “Our just-published research on healthcare learning shows that healthcare lags significantly behind most other industry sectors in several major metrics. This trend is in direct juxtaposition with the increased pressures for compliance training and demand for healthcare services.”
