InfoLogix's e-Learning Team Develops Custom, Web-Based Training Solution to Reduce Costs and Improve Employee Productivity
HATBORO, Pa., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InfoLogix, Inc. (Nasdaq: IFLG), a leading technology provider of enterprise mobility and advanced wireless asset tracking solutions for the healthcare and commercial industries, announced today it has successfully deployed an advanced clinical training solution for Edward Hospital, a 300-bed full-service hospital and healthcare provider located in Naperville, IL.
InfoLogix has successfully developed custom, web-based training solutions for more than 5,000 Edward Hospital employees across 17 different campuses over the past several years. As a result, when Edward Hospital faced a new, human resource development and training challenge, they turned to InfoLogix for assistance based on InfoLogix's deep understanding of the day-to-day challenges healthcare organizations face. In particular, Edward Hospital was struggling to find a better way to educate its administrators, department managers and clinicians on the latest software applications and hospital procedures -- a daunting task given the dynamic, around-the-clock schedules of their employees.
The traditional, classroom-based training approach Edward Hospital had relied upon prior to InfoLogix proved to be expensive and cumbersome. Because of demanding employee schedules, in the past, they offered each four-hour training session at least ten times a month, and when patient emergencies arose, employees were often forced to reschedule their training on short notice, significantly increasing costs. Edward Hospital wanted a more efficient, flexible training solution that would accommodate unpredictable employee schedules and minimize the time managers and clinicians were away from their core duties and patients. To address this challenge, they engaged InfoLogix to create a customized, media-rich OnTrack Learning Management System specific to the technology and workflow processes used by the Edward Hospital organization.
The development of the sophisticated, Learning Management System encompassed several distinct phases. First, InfoLogix created customized content based on an extensive series of interviews with Edward Hospital's subject matter experts to define the hospital's business requirements, current educational workflow and training objectives. Then, InfoLogix worked closely with Edward Hospital to create a comprehensive educational curriculum for more than 150 department managers and supervisors throughout the organization. Finally, InfoLogix leveraged the latest technologies to create an easy-to-use, web-based training solution which employees can access from any computer at their convenience.
"InfoLogix has completely transformed how we educate our employees," said Teresa Oliszewicz, Manager of Organization Development and Learning at Edward Hospital. "Training administrators and clinicians in a busy healthcare organization involves significant logistical challenges, but InfoLogix studied our requirements, and built a Learning Management System that's custom-tailored to how we work, right down to the smallest detail. Now we have a fully-automated training system that allows us to train employees quickly and efficiently so they can devote time to what matters most -- our patients."
"Based on our experience working with more than 1,400 hospitals nationwide, we know organizational development and training are ongoing challenges for healthcare organizations," said David Gulian, president and CEO of InfoLogix. "We're excited about the customized Learning Management System we created for Edward Hospital, as we believe that new technology solutions play a vital role in increasing efficiencies, reducing costs and providing better patient care."
