Overall Satisfaction with HealthStream

HealthStream is being used as the learning management system for all employees and healthcare providers (typically physicians). All departments across our system use it to take mandatory and elective online training and class registration. It helps us meet regulatory education needs.
  • Meeting healthcare regulatory education needs - comes with a regulatory library focused on those needs (The Joint Commission and OSHA)
  • Elective Course Options - dozens of course libaries available for purchase to meeting contining education needs of nurses and clinical employees
  • Class Registraion - Does a really nice job of handling thousands of class registrations for massive education roll outs
  • Course Building - with additional resources you can purchase rights to author your own courses.
  • Class Building - very tediouos to build hundreds of classes, users do not get notified when added to a class
  • Reporting - this something they are working on. Reports are very tedious to run with all the parameters.
  • Administrators - not intuitive to be in the system. Although over time it does all make more sense.
  • More efficient just in time training
  • Create in house courses that meet the specific needs of the organization
  • Students can complete training during down time at work
We chose HealthStream because of the core regulatory library. No other LMS offered this 3 years ago.
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.
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?
