Pasadena, MD (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island (Neighborhood), a non-profit HMO, has selected ICS Learning Group (ICS) to develop employee training related to the upcoming ACA, or ‘Obamacare,’ implementation in October. ICS, a leading provider of custom eLearning courseware development, has extensive experience in the design and development of elearning courseware in the healthcare industry. That experience, along with the accommodation of a rapid development schedule and the ability to provide Adobe Connect integration, led Neighborhood to choose ICS as their development partner in this project.
The ACA will bring many changes to the healthcare system, for which employees of HMOs and other healthcare providers will need to be trained. Neighborhood’s “Understanding the Affordable Care Act and Health Benefits Exchange” training is designed for three audience profiles; Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced – depending on the depth of knowledge required of a particular employee or group. Overall, each course will provide an engaging presentation to define and understand the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Health Benefits Exchange (HBE), and the integration requirements. Additionally, the courses will train the Neighborhood employees on their offerings within Rhode Island’s Exchange, including the various ‘metal’ levels, income requirements and subsidies, as well as explain how Neighborhood will evolve as an organization by participating in the Exchange.
ICS worked closely with Neighborhood to develop a balanced, engaging, and effective training program series on a compressed schedule, ready for distribution before Oct. 1st.
