Overall Satisfaction with HealthStream

We used it across the organization to complete compliance and job-specific training. This was used at about 20 different locations as well as corporate. We used the HealthStream package of courses, as well as built our own courses and uploaded them into HealthStream. It addresses training needs for compliance reasons.


  • Track training.
  • Reporting.


  • Course building.
  • More intuitive.
  • Tracked compliance training.
  • Tracked training hours.
I liked Cornerstone better from an LMS perspective, they were a bit easier to use and had a better user experience. Cornerstone had more to offer as well with reporting and was a bit more user-friendly from an administrator perspective. Cornerstone also is not just for healthcare but other industries.
I only used HealthStream for a short time, but it wasn’t overly user-friendly or pretty. There were some quirks that I didn’t like, like the quiz builder or uploading lists. Whenever you assigned a group it was difficult to tell and confirm that the assignment went out. Overall I like other systems better.

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.
