Relias Press Release

Relias Named Silver Winner of 2023 Merit Awards for Healthcare Innovations

Healthcare workforce enablement company recognized for supporting the continued growth of the healthcare market 

Relias, the trusted education and workforce enablement partner to more than 11,000 healthcare and human service organizations and 4.5 million caregivers, announced today that it has been named a silver winner for the 2023 Merit Awards for Healthcare Innovations.   

One of the most notable workforce innovations that Relias provides is its SaaS Platform. The Relias Platform provides a unified experience catering to healthcare administrators and learners that improves onboarding, compliance, competency, and clinical performance across the healthcare continuum.  

With data integration options and automated features like course enrollment or weekly or monthly reports, Relias’ innovative Platform continues to simplify and digitize admin workflows.  

The technology behind the Platform also meets learners where they are, providing a personalized experience. The Platform acts as a hub for learners to manage their license and certifications, advance their careers with multi-modality courses, and stay compliant with regulator training.  

The Relias Learner app seamlessly syncs with the user’s Relias Platform account so that healthcare workers can access mandatory and CE training when it’s most convenient for them. Knowing that more and more healthcare workers also need multilanguage options, especially in home-based care, Relias designed the app to support up to nine different languages to give learners training they can absorb in the language they best understand. 

Additionally, Relias is the parent company for Nurse.com — the only skills-based nurse talent marketplace with proprietary matching technology — a welcomed innovation to both healthcare employers and nurses amid the ongoing nurse shortage. This platform curates millions of data points from Nurse.com users to help organizations hire the right candidate for the right role to improve retention. 

“It’s an honor to accept this recognition for healthcare innovation from the Merit Awards,” said Shawn Barber, Chief Product Officer at Relias. “Our goal at Relias is to enable our customers and partners to provide care at the highest level. We pursue this by being fearless in our innovation, discovering new opportunities to realize products and services that really make a difference. This recognition is motivation for all of us here at Relias to continue finding innovative solutions to the challenges our customers face every day.”  

In 2024, Relias will launch Relias Compliance Management, an integrated solution to help organizations minimize their exposure to risk. This innovative software provides management solutions that deliver seamless workflows, connected policies and procedures, AI-driven risk analytics, and incident management — all integrated with Relias’ award-winning learning. 

Created in 2022, the Merit Awards are an independent awards program that recognizes global industries and the markets they serve. The Merit Awards for Healthcare were judged based on submissions that addressed various healthcare needs ranging from services to innovations. Merit Awards’ judges include respected journalists, executives, consultants, entrepreneurs, educators, and the Merit Awards staff. 

“Health care is a critical part of our lives, whether business or personal,” said Marie Zander, executive director of the Merit Awards. “We were thrilled to receive the submissions that spoke to the services, products, innovations, and technologies that are shaping the healthcare marketplace. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners.”
