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.

Cons

HealthStream

  • On more than one occasion healthstream notified me that I had a task to be done, but it was nowhere to be found in my assignments.

HealthStream met our needs and they were very responsive on the customer service side when we had issues trying to upload course assets. It was mostly stable, at times when running reports it may crash - but uptime was very acceptable and within industry norms. Pretty easy to get the navigation of the tool down.

Alternatives Considered

HealthStream

I have also used products from SWANK healthcare and Oracle. While cost was a consideration in choosing both of these solutions - neither was as robust as HealthStream in reporting or the ability to assign courses or training to employees. Also, the UI with HealthStream is much easier to navigate and more intuitive.
