Maintain Medical Certifications

In healthcare, employees must demonstrate proficiency in specific job competencies. Often, proof of this knowledge is documented through certifications. To maintain accreditation, it’s not uncommon for healthcare organizations to demonstrate to surveyors that employee certifications are up-to-date.

Learning management systems make it easier for organizations to keep track of employee certifications and also generate documentation that outlines which employees have been certified on particular skills. Consider the benefits of adopting such a system:

  • Supervisors have a central view into the training that direct reports have completed

    Learning management systems track all types of training that contributes to certification including in-services and professional development.

  • Completed transcripts can be generated for audits and surveys

    During regulatory surveys, it’s easy to print completed training transcripts and information about training that employees are enrolled in.

  • Managers can proactively identify areas that need attention

    If employees have let certifications expire, learning management systems can alert supervisors. Addressing these issues proactively prevents problems from arising during visits from regulatory or accreditation agencies.
