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.
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?
