Qstream will provide Informa’s clients with a scientifically proven method for engaging learners and reinforcing knowledge, while offering detailed analytics about learner performance.
Burlington, MA (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
Qstream, a leading provider of mobile learning technology, and Informa Training Partners, a leader in sales training for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, today announced they have signed a partnership agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, Informa will use Qstream as the platform for their new iQ product line for both custom and off-the-shelf training programs. Informa will also become an authorized referral partner for Qstream enterprise solutions.
Qstream is a mobile learning platform that provides continuous reinforcement and sustainability of knowledge to increase productivity. It uses a simple but powerful question and answer system that pushes knowledge to a mobile device or PC.
Data shows that even the best classroom and online learning is forgotten within three months. Developed at Harvard Medical School, the Qstream platform addresses this challenge with a patented “spaced education” methodology that promotes learning retention in just three minutes a day. The Qstream platform also delivers insights on user performance to managers, providing actionable intelligence based on trends over time, identifying areas of weak knowledge or differences in learning between teams.
Informa’s first iQ offering, powered by Qstream, will be their healthcare reform training program, the HCR iQ Series. This unique approach builds strong foundational knowledge in healthcare reform for pharmaceutical sales professionals, managed care account managers, or anyone in the industry who needs to understand major trends in healthcare reform, including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Patient-centric Medical Homes (PCMHs), the expansion of Medicaid, and Health-insurance Exchanges.
“We’re thrilled to provide the platform for Informa’s mobile learning solutions,” said Duncan Lennox, CEO of Qstream. “Qstream will provide Informa’s clients with a scientifically proven method for engaging learners and reinforcing knowledge, while offering detailed analytics about learner performance. We are confident that Informa’s experience and expertise in providing marketplace and clinical sales training will greatly complement the use of Qstream by leading organizations in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries.”
“The integration of Qstream into our products and custom programs adds a new dimension to Informa’s solutions that promises our clients a more solid return on their training investment,” said Jennifer Gulbrand, Executive Director/Co-founder of Informa.
