Prophecy Healthcare seemed like a natural fit since its definition is on mark with what we are attempting to do with our testing: ‘the foretelling or prediction of what is to come.’
High Point, NC (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Amistaff Healthcare Technology, recognized as industry leader for online, healthcare competency testing, announced its new company name, Prophecy Healthcare, Inc ®. With the expansion of competency assessments and solutions now provided, the company is changing its name from Amistaff HCT to Prophecy Healthcare to better reflect the company’s comprehensive portfolio of employment prediction assessments for the healthcare industry in a time where hospitals seek ways to raise patient satisfaction ratings.
Amistaff HCT’s flagship product, NurseTesting.com, was limited by the name in that it infers the company solely tested “nurses.” With the transition to Prophecy Healthcare, NurseTesting.com became Prophecy Clinical Assessments – one part of a suite of assessments including Behavioral and Situational Assessments that generate a holistic report incorporating interpersonal competencies typically missed in traditional testing.
“The unveiling of Prophecy Healthcare® marks a significant milestone for our company. Since we consolidated our business objective to focus on what we do best, testing and assessment, we were searching for something new. After 3 years of research and development on our "new" assessments, which resulted in us being able to predict the likelihood of success of candidates BEFORE they were hired, we were looking for branding and a name that focused on the predictive value of our new service,” explained Ronald Gonzalez, CEO/Founder of Prophecy Healthcare.
“Prophecy seemed like a natural fit since its definition is on mark with what we are attempting to do with our testing: ‘the foretelling or prediction of what is to come.’ We want to help both hiring managers select the best candidates for their organization and education coordinators evaluate and educate current staff members using the information generated from our Prophecy Assessments.”
In conjunction with the name change, the company also announced the availability of the two aforementioned assessments forming the following testing suite:
- Prophecy Behavioral Assessments utilize personality and attitude tests to measure cognitive thinking. The results capture behavioral characteristics that predict high performance, such as integrity and conscientiousness.
- Prophecy Clinical Assessments encompass the extensive exam library of the former NurseTesting.com. The comprehensive, nationally validated library include OSHA and Joint Commission mandatories, nursing and allied assessments, as well as clinical skills checklists.
- Prophecy Situational Assessments identify caregivers with soft-skills directly correlated to successful nursing practice. Using Prophecy’s Situational Assessments, facilities are able to quantify which caregivers will make the most effective decisions in the workplace.
All of the assessments are web-based, with instant validated scoring, developing a scorecard that highlights each applicant’s strengths and areas for improvement.
Effective immediately, all future business activity will be conducted using the new name. There has been no change in the company’s management or ownership leaving clients with the same Prophecy Crew Members they have grown to know and trust.
