Agreement combines access to courses and administrative requirements from separate Learning Management Systems to improve operational efficiencies
CARY, NC, March 30, 2017 – Relias Learning, a trusted partner in online analytics, assessments, and learning for the healthcare market, announced today a new strategic partnership with PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software platform for the senior care continuum. This partnership will provide PointClickCare customers with access to Relias Learning’s wide range of education and training solutions, all of which have been designed specifically for providers across the long-term and post-acute care market.
“We constantly solicit feedback from our clients, and greater integration is a frequent request,” explained Mark Belles, COO of Relias Learning. “Partnering with an existing client such as PointClickCare offers a wealth of benefits for users of both systems.”
Additionally, effective April 3, 2017, PointClickCare’s online training solution – SmartZone, will adopt Relias as their new learning management system (LMS) hosting provider. Existing customers, who are already subscribed to Relias and PointClickCare SmartPath, will have the ability to activate SmartZone within existing Relias libraries of online training. This new option will allow joint customers greater flexibility to:
- access and distribute any combination of PointClickCare’s comprehensive suite of over 200 clinical and financial eCourses and instructor-led training sessions
- add or remove eCourses from our recommended bundle of training
- remove the need to separately manage users in SmartZone
- obtain reporting in the Relias LMS on course completion and course activity
- allow administrators to distribute and permission training to their own specified staffing groups (by shift, facility, team, role, etc.)
“The Relias-PointClickCare partnership means we’ll have our PointClickCare training modules integrated directly into the Relias Learning Management System,” explained Michele Self, Vice President of Clinical Reimbursement, at Illinois-based Villa Healthcare, a company that uses both Relias and PointClickCare services. “This will allow us to assign and track Relias and PointClickCare courses together based on job role significantly quicker than we were previously able.”
Relias provides lifelong workforce enablement solutions for more than 11,000 healthcare and human services organizations and 4.5 million caregivers to drive measurable outcomes. Customers use Relias solutions to attract and retain talent, elevate care quality and reduce risk with our technology, services, community, and expertise. The Relias family of brands — Nurse.com, Wound Care Education Institute, Relias Academy, FreeCME, and Relias Media — serves the entire healthcare community and shares a common goal of improving the lives of the most vulnerable members of society and those who care for them.
