EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

HealthStream

I would ask the project manager/leader if they intended on developing their own content, or if they were content with HealthStream's various content libraries. The decision to use HealthStream as a development tool, internally, cannot be taken lightly. There is a lot of work and required expertise involved in designing and maintaining original course materials. I would also ask if the project manager/leader had considered the amount of time required to manage a full-service HealthStream environment.

Pros

  • Interpersonal relationship
  • Team Building
  • Acknowledgement of weaknesses
No photo available
  • Reporting. Having the ability to track compliance (and non-compliance) at our fingertips ensures that we are up-to-date with Federal, State, Local and internal policies, requirements and educational initiatives
  • Customization. Developing in-house materials, specific to our variable training needs is a huge plus - HealthStream's commitment to SCORM-ready content since 2011 has made it simple for us to connect, engage and interact with all of our staff and providers.
  • Integration. Allowing us to interface with our HRM/HRIS systems is invaluable. Keeping up with a dynamic workforce, both in terms of retention and attrition, would not be possible without our current interface structures.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
No photo available
  • Additional SCORM capability. It would be nice for HealthStream to record and maintain responses from SCORM-based input, including user responses. Having only the ability to review multiple-choice test iterations and average responses is good, but the ability to review individual responses would be amazing - and a great tool to identify specific gaps in educational content/student understanding.
  • Additional test question types. It would be great to see interactive question objects available through the standard HLC test question interface. The ability to create hotspot interactions and/or visual queues would be ideal - and possibly enhance the value of the Test Results report.
  • Easier non-HealthStream data recording. For us, having the ability to customize the student profile would be a great plus. In a changed model, we could add fields for inservices, CE/CEU classes taken outside of HealthStream and have the ability to record other training-related data to a single screen.
  • Performance Reviews. This, to me, is a natural addition to the HealthStream process. Having performance tied to training/development would be another great plus. Obviously, if this was another "module" with greater expense, the benefit would be less.

Customer support and the cost of the product would be my number one reasons. Customer support is fantastic!

We just can't imagine NOT having HealthStream as it has become such a part of our training system. The per user cost has actually gone down from 3 years ago. However, we are using more courses we have purchased. This allows us to be more efficient with our time and more convenient for the end users. We are considering purchasing other aspects of the system.
