Acquisition furthers Relias’ leadership position in online training for senior care.
CARY, NC, October 27, 2015 — Relias Learning, the leader in online training and compliance solutions for the healthcare market, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of RediLearning, an online learning company focused exclusively on the senior care industry. Relias’ acquisition of RediLearning reflects a continued investment in healthcare education by adding more than 400 new senior care courses to Relias Learning’s comprehensive training library, along with a talented team of senior care experts.
“The acquisition of RediLearning is another step towards our goal of being the premier provider of online training across the healthcare continuum of care. As healthcare continues to evolve, Relias is providing training that educates staff to deliver the highest quality of care in the most efficient manner,” says Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias Learning. “RediLearning’s success with large senior care providers, based on deep industry knowledge and outstanding customer experience, is a perfect complement to Relias. Together we can lift the level of care provided by our clients to new heights.”
RediLearning was founded in 2006 to empower senior care providers to engage their teams, grow returns, and ensure compliance. RediLearning was built, like Relias Learning, to focus on client success and improving compliance and the quality of care in the healthcare industry.
Triandiflou states, “The key to Relias’ growth has been our focus on our clients’ success. Together, Relias Learning and RediLearning are uniquely positioned to serve the senior care industry and meet their needs in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. We know that organizations must meet certain levels of compliance training, but it is critical that their staff also learn best practices that can impact client outcomes and overall organizational performance. Joining forces gives customers of both organizations an unprecedented breadth of learning options; access to RediLearning’s human capital performance partnership with Skillsoft; and the power of Relias Learning’s unparalleled investment in research and development.”
“Our success at RediLearning was formed on the combination of offering great content, innovative technology, and exemplary client service,” says Michael Hemlepp, founder and CEO of RediLearning. “We’re thrilled that Relias is also dedicated to these key pillars and will help bring an even higher level of investment, innovation and impact to our customers and the healthcare industry as a whole.”
Relias Learning has shown exceptional growth since its inception in 2012 and has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. in 2012, 2013 and 2014. As a cornerstone of Bertelsmann’s newly created Bertelsmann Education Group, Relias is planning to continue its aggressive growth by offering new products, moving into new area of healthcare market and entering into international markets in early 2016.
The acquisition follows Relias’ recent release of three innovative product capabilities: a mobile series of wellness training, simulated learning, and gaming elements to increase learner engagement. These three capabilities are the latest in a series of product enhancements to ensure providers can keep up with the new demands of the ever-changing healthcare industry.
