Charlottesville, VA (Vocus) May 25, 2010
The New Mexico Health Care Association (NMHCA)/New Mexico Center for Assisted Living (NMCAL) has chosen Silverchair Learning Systems as its preferred online training partner, bringing New Mexico senior care providers online professional training to improve operations and reduce costs.
“Offering professional and consistent training is one of our great strengths. These courses are appropriate for every employee in a senior care setting and address the unique training needs of our workforce,” said Tracy Alter, Senior Director of Member Services, NMHCA/NMCAL.
The Silverchair partnership allows NMHCA/NMCAL to offer a highly effective and affordable turn-key learning program that delivers, tracks and reports on educational programs for any long-term care provider’s entire organization. The training program includes a complete curriculum of in-service and regulatory courses required by CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), as well as important resident care topics that specifically address the needs of senior care providers and their employees. The program can also be customized to include material specific to an organization.
Providers everywhere want to deliver effective training to their employees and manage the education process more efficiently. At a time when staffing shortages top the list of key concerns, leaders are challenged with finding new and innovative ways to turn limited human resources and funding into quality care, while operating in a highly regulated environment.
“Our educational objectives are perfectly aligned with the mission of the NMHCA/NMCAL,” said Mike Mutka, President and COO of Silverchair Learning Systems. “Silverchair works exclusively with senior facilities to provide the best professional development opportunities, and we’re pleased to bring our system to New Mexico providers.”
NMHCA/NMCAL has negotiated exclusive pricing with Silverchair, making the learning management and online training system affordable to providers throughout New Mexico.
