Relias Takes Home EdTech Breakthrough’s Online Learning Innovation Award

Industry-leading healthcare education solutions company recognized for its cutting-edge simulation training

Relias, the trusted education and workforce enablement partner to 12,000 healthcare and human services organizations and 4.5 million caregivers, today announced its recognition for the Online Learning Innovation Award by the EdTech Breakthrough Awards. 

EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, created its awards program to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of educational technology categories. 

Relias previously won the EdTech Breakthrough Award for LMS Platform of the Year in 2023. This year, the healthcare education simulation, A Day in the Life: An ASD Perspective, won the 2024 Online Learning Innovation Award for its innovative learning content, among thousands of nominations from over 17 different countries globally. 

Relias’ approach centers around integrating simulation training into its curriculum. This provides authentic scenarios that enable learners to apply new knowledge in a risk-free environment. Mirroring real-life situations, these simulations are known to improve knowledge retention and cultivate critical thinking skills. The methodology is also financially advantageous, significantly reducing training costs while elevating educational standards.  

“We’re dedicated to empowering healthcare professionals with the tools they need to deliver exceptional care and improve patient outcomes,” said Maria Samot, Senior Vice President of Education Product Management, Relias. “Receiving this award is an honor, and it fuels Relias’ pursuit of innovation, encouraging us to continue developing best-in-class content that bolsters learning with immersion, engagement, and lasting impact.” 

The award-winning course, A Day in the Life: An ASD Perspective, offers users a unique, firsthand glimpse into the daily challenges faced by individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Captured through the lens of a GoPro™ camera, this simulation seamlessly blends immersive first-person perspectives with the accessibility of online training. 

“By immersing participants in simulated experiences, you can foster empathy and understanding, which can prompt clinicians and direct support professionals to refine their approaches when caring for people with disabilities,” said Steve Johansson, Managing Director, EdTech Breakthrough. “The quickest way to measurably improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of society is for those who care for them to truly understand. Relias is setting a new standard for educational excellence, strengthening the healthcare workforce by pioneering cutting-edge advancements in healthcare education and crafting solutions that address the evolving needs of clinicians and their patients.” 

With more than 8,000 content assets built by in-house adult learning theory experts and clinicians, Relias helps healthcare and human services organizations understand the gaps across their workforce and provides high-quality virtual education and training. These continuing education and workforce tools for healthcare professionals enhance retention, elevate care, and reduce clinical risks.
