As healthcare facilities across the nation admit more patients, increase demands on doctors and face nursing shortages, they cannot afford to have their employees spend any more time taking federally mandated training than is necessary. They need to save both time and money while ensuring that their staff have obtained required certification.
Inspired by the increased need for effective healthcare e-learning and by the need for healthcare educators to understand e-learning technologies and standards, instructional design techniques, and adult learning principles; InfoPro Learning, Inc started it’s healthcare e-learning practice. This independent function provides information and collaborative solutions and opportunities to the diverse set of individuals involved in healthcare e-learning, including instructional designers, healthcare educators and administrators, publishers, IT system administrators, and web developers.
According to the executive leadership of InfoPro, “Other industries, including aviation and defense, have successfully leveraged online learning to train their workforces, but as with other technologies, healthcare has been far behind in using learning technologies effectively. Finally, healthcare is beginning to embrace e-learning as professional societies, universities, teaching hospitals, government, and commercial enterprises include it as a part of their overall strategy. What we have not seen yet is a lot of high quality content or cost-effective use of e-learning resources.”
Often experienced healthcare education providers have problems understanding where and how technology standards map into effective e-learning, and IT implementers often fail to understand the role of pedagogy. InfoPro Learning brings together the realms of technology and pedagogy for effective e-learning.
Our heathcare function serves as a comprehensive source for entities who produce and distribute online healthcare education for all levels of learners. Through our continous learning and practice we thrive to provide information and collaborative opportunities and solutions on a range of areas in e-learning including pedagogy (i.e., instructional design, assessment, distance learning, and curriculum development), technology standards, educational technology, educational metrics, e-learning economics, and issues and methods specific to healthcare education.
Areas for online healthcare education: Clinical Training, Surgical Training, CME through Distance Education, Healthcare Sales Force Training, Medical Equipment Training, Practice Management Training, Occupational Safety & Health Administration, and much more.
