Continuing Healthcare Education: Private Sector Certification Management

For busy healthcare professionals who must refresh and prove crucial skillsets, 100% online certification courses are a boon.

National Healthcare Provider Solutions (NHPS) became a leading private sector provider of online medical certifications by focusing on high-priority medical skillsets that require recurring certifications and by proactively meeting requirements of major health organizations that accredit the training.

Currently well over 100,000 professionals a year are earning certifications without face-to-face courses in NHPS topics such as Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, Basic Life Support, CPR, AED, First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogens.

NHPS choose Element because they had outgrown a custom-built Ruby on Rails implementation that they judged too cumbersome and too expensive to adapt and scale.

Element configured the new platform to manage learners in new and on-going relationships for certification and recertification. Learners choose among certification options and buy them online – individually, in bundles, and with team discounts. Course designs and delivery are flexible to accommodate busy schedules. All content is 100% web-based so learners can take exams anywhere, anytime.

The site delivers rich resources for learners – study guides, practice tests, algorithms, mobile apps, and quick links to journal articles, FAQs, and affiliate programs. Learners can test their knowledge and skills in numerous Megacode scenarios such as V-Tach (ventricular tachycardia) and PEA (pulseless electrical activity).
