St. Louis (MO.) (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Amerinet Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization, and Inquisit®, Amerinet’s strategic education partner, have implemented a seamless electronic portal to make it easier for organizations and associations to offer quality continuing education (CE) activities for their employees or members. By using the CE portal, organizations reduce the financial commitment and human resource burden of delivering education programs that include CE accreditation, thereby creating more time and money to focus on their core business objectives.
“Inquisit excels at providing quality, affordable and convenient access to education. The CE portal is just one example of the many state-of-the-art customer-facing technology tools we’ve developed to make it easy for our customers to work with us,” stated John Grimm, vice president of information, systems and technology at Amerinet. “When you take our technology and back it with Inquisit’s experience as a trusted CE provider and affiliation with more than 30 accrediting agencies, you have one powerful combination that meets the educational needs of non-accredited organizations.”
Inquisit creates, accredits, produces and delivers an organization’s educational programs and associated materials via a customized CE portal. The organization’s customers simply access this electronic portal to participate in the program and earn CE credit. As a result, the organization is able to demonstrate its commitment to the professional development of its members.
“Ensuring our pharmacy professionals receive the CE credits they need in a cost-effective and production-efficient manner is a major challenge. Thanks to a joint sponsorship with Inquisit, we were able to provide on-site, quality educational programs presented by our own team. No travel expenses and no time away from work,” commented Bruce Leavitt, assistant director of clinical pharmacy services at Intermountain Medical Center. “Plus, Inquisit’s technology allows quick and easy processes for our CE hours to be accurately uploaded to the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) electronic tracking systems in a very timely manner. It is a seamless process managed with excellent customer service by Inquisit.”
In addition to the custom electronic portal, Inquisit’s education management services for non-accredited organizations include:
- Need assessment
- Faculty conflict of interest disclosure and resolution
- Agenda and content development and validation
- Certificate processing, records retention and data storage
- Evaluation summaries and attendance reporting
- Outcomes measurement
“We use the CE portal that Inquisit created for us whenever we can,” said Cathleen Armold, director of member services, Indiana Hospital Association. “It saves our staff the valuable time and cost associated with compiling evaluation summaries and distributing personalized CE certificates to all of our attendees.”
David Hardy, vice president of pharmacy for Health Resource Services, noted, “Inquisit’s portal is very user-friendly which makes it especially convenient for healthcare professionals to meet their ongoing continuing education requirements. I have always been able to find a continuing education session on an area of pharmacy I either need to know about or find of great interest.”
Inquisit’s continuing education management services are available to any healthcare organization or association at a competitive price.
Inquisit is currently managing the continuing education activities for nearly 30 organizations across the country. To learn more on how Inquisit can help your organization understand the complexities of healthcare continuing education accreditation, please go to http://www.inquisit.org.
