Leading behavioral health provider selects Relias to improve the quality and compliance of training offered to staff.
CARY, NC, September 29, 2014 – Harbor Corporation, the largest mental health provider in Northwest Ohio, announced today it is partnering with Relias Learning, the leader in SaaS-based training and compliance solutions for the health and human services markets.
“Attracting, developing and retaining qualified healthcare professionals is critical to provide the best possible care to improve the quality of life for individuals with mental health disorders,” says John Sheehan, CEO of Harbor.
“This partnership with Relias Learning enables us to equip our employees with the type of tools and training materials they need to grow.”
Harbor chose to partner with Relias because of the company’s innovative learning management system (LMS), which allows Harbor administration to automatically assign curriculum to all employees, author customized courses and leverage “blended learning” techniques. This concept of blended learning combines technology with live training sessions to ensure the staff truly understands how to employ best practices in their day-to-day jobs.
“The Relias LMS is built specifically to meet the needs of expansive providers like Harbor,” says Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias Learning. “Our goal is to enable forward-thinking organizations, like Harbor, to turn employee development into a strategic advantage – by driving training compliance, providing efficient and cost-effective solutions and promoting improved outcomes in the market.”
“This solution helps Harbor stay compliant and maintain our accreditation, but it also allows us to keep a finger on the pulse of the organization to determine areas in which we can continually strive to improve,” says Tracy Sokoloski, Director of Human Resources for Harbor. “Our clinical team reacted positively to the Relias system and the variety of continuing education credits available, and through pre- and post- test results, we are able to better track our staff’s progress and development.”
