HealthStream is a wonderful tool for assigning assessments and evaluating knowledge. The assessments have a large pool of questions to pull from. The exams are timed and will generate a test report at the end of the exam so the clinical team can see what tests were passed and failed. These are helpful in ensuring we know what the nurse needs extra education on. HealthStream would be less suited for education items that would need to be validated in person...skills such as CPR.

Healthstram is good for healthcare, but there may be other options out there. They claim to be used in the majority of hospitals, so that’s nice as there is less of a learning curve for people in the healthcare field. I was not impressed from a learning perspective on the courses that they had in their course package, but it’s easier than building courses if you don’t have an instructional designer on staff.

We often use healthstream as a way to complete our yearly competency of hospital protocol and policies. Its a great time saver for things like HIPAA practice and emergency code situations without having to have a meeting every year covering the same thing. Sometimes I do wish we had a meeting about new applications and programs instead of just healthstream, but I think that's a department issue more than a healthstream one.

It is extremely helpful for assigning learning opportunities to staff members. You can easily choose which assignments are necessary for which roles and departments. If items should be revisited annually you can easily configure that setting so the course reassigns each year. This feature is super helpful for compliance measures. It is not practical if hands on learning is required. In healthcare there are many things that can be addressed via HealthStream but you have to understand the limits - we wouldn't teach CPR via an online module.

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.

It is very well suited for organizations that have limited resources in terms of education staff. HealthStream can be run by one person if needed. I am doing it for about 20,000 users. Ideally it would work best if you could also build your own courses and have the resources to do that.

Key Questions:
What training do you provide for administrators?
What support do you provide for administrators?
What support do you provide for students?
How often is the website down?
What operating systems are you compatible with?
How often do you update your courses?

How familiar [are they with HealthStream] and how often will they take advantage of the training? Should offer more of an entry level version and an everyday user fresher training focused on recent changes and less on the basics.

Not really. I believe the HealthStream LMS can be customized for any environment. I would ask about system support, to make sure everyone in the organization can log into the environment without issues and access it from their desk as well as their home PC. Also, I would make sure it's customized to be easy for anyone to navigate through regardless of their computer literacy level.

It was well suited for us because we have so many facilities in different locations and it was cost effective for us to have a program where everyone can go to one website and get training instead of paying a trainer to come and train our employees. It was also cost effective since they had to do the training on the computer we did not have as many employees out of the office when they were getting training. It was also good because it was able to keep track and make sure that our employees stayed in compliance. I get an email weeks ahead of time instead of finding out at the last minute that an employee is not in compliance.

Healthstream is an inexpensive solution for any company but particulalry for one that has employees located at more than 1 location and with employees that work shifts other than 8-5.

I think that the biggest area where HealthStream is suited is to track required trainings, presentations, tests etc. Because of its intuitive design and relative ease to set up required material, it would be very easy to implement HealthStream on a larger scale. However, if the primary goal of the end user is simply to roll out assessments, something like SurveyMonkey may be a better option.

Will you have a Healthstream team that will be responsible for putting in the employees so they are entered before required training?
Will you have someone that is able to understand the product well enough that they can produce reports if requested?
Will you have enough personnel on the Healthstream team to make sure that tests are entered correctly with correct answers?
Will you have one or more Healthstream administrator, you should have more than one employee holding the keys to the kingdom so to speak.

HealthStream is very useful when there's a specific module or educational session that needs to reach many different people. I think this product would be useful in my current organization. As an Anesthesia practice, many of the physicians don't physically come to the office. They're contracted out to area hospitals to provide anesthesia. Having HealthStream would greatly improve our ability to educate our providers on information and meetings they're unable to attend.
