This partnership adds scale and greater capability to help colleges and universities launch and grow new health care programs. - Keypath Education CEO Steve Fireng
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (PRWEB) November 05, 2015
Keypath Education is pleased to announce the acquisition of GlobalHealth Education, bringing together two leading higher education businesses to better address the demand for health care education. Keypath Education has partnered with higher education institutions for more than 26 years to create the world’s most prepared students. GlobalHealth Education provides access to online health care degree programs for employees and members of health care companies and associations to advance their careers through a proprietary college and university network.
Under the new company structure, GlobalHealth will be rebranded as GlobalHealth by Keypath Education and will represent the company’s health care-focused online program management (OPM) business unit, by providing a highly tailored solution for health care programs worldwide. The global health care market presents a significant platform for the combined company’s continued growth and increased penetration. The health care industry in the United States alone is expected to see a 23 percent increase in jobs during the coming years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Particularly in the U.S., the increasingly complex health care system is calling for a more highly skilled workforce. Coupled with optimistic salary expectations, health care education is growing in popularity.
Together, Keypath Education and GlobalHealth will leverage deep health system relationships and B2B ties to deliver industry-leading online offerings. The partnership immediately increases the degree options available to health care workers and professionals.
Keypath Education, a global leader in marketing services and online enablement, works with its partners to launch programs, grow student enrollment, improve learning and connect education to careers. By joining Keypath Education, GlobalHealth will expand its portfolio of degree programs and provide more diverse and extensive support services to colleges and universities.
“Combining Keypath Education’s global online enablement expertise with GlobalHealth’s industry-leading health care OPM specialization will enable the enterprise to maximize student outcomes and deliver superior results for our partners,” said Keypath Education CEO Steve Fireng. “This partnership adds scale and greater capability to help colleges and universities launch and grow new health care programs. The health care profession continues to need a more educated workforce. Combined, we will support institutions and health care organizations in closing this gap.”
Fireng will remain CEO of Keypath Education. Debbie Schwarzberg, founder and CEO of GlobalHealth, will be joining Keypath Education as president of its OPM Health Care Division. Additionally, Keypath Education and dialogEDU, an intuitive global online learning platform owned by GlobalHealth’s former parent company, will enter into a strategic partnership to provide technology solutions to the higher education and health care communities in the form of a next-generation learning management system utilized by institutions focusing on high-quality, personalized learning.
“I am excited that GlobalHealth and I are joining the Keypath Education family," said Schwarzberg. "With our shared vision for online education and focused approach to the huge growth in the health care training and education market, GlobalHealth will now reach more students, health care businesses and medical associations with a broader and deeper set of education offerings.”
Together, the companies that have formed the new GlobalHealth by Keypath Education will work to meet the needs of the health care and medical communities by guiding learners from enrollment to graduation and beyond. This effort will also expand to Keypath Education’s operations in the U.K., Australia and Canada.
