I used HealthStream in a past position with Genesis Health Systems in the Iowa Quad Cities. We had 5,000 healthcare employees including RNs, LPNs, Techs, Physicians and Administrative Personnel. HealthStream allowed us to track course and training completions by running global reports and we could also segment our reports to capture specific groups. We were able to increase compliance to Joint Commission and CMS regulations in regard to training completions - especially as we used HealthStream to manage our CPR/ACLS/PALS life saving course completion. By using HealthStream we were able to target those employees that did not complete training and were out of compliance and we furloughed them until they completed mandatory training. We reduced non-compliance to less than 5% of employees in our life-saving courses.
We purchased courses from HealthStream - but mostly we created our own courses using Adobe Captivate. We created courses for clinical training, soft skills, diversity and Human Resource training as well as business and financial training.
