With Pathlore, Univ. of No. Carolina Health Care System Helps Medical Pros

July 27, 2004

“The time savings we achieve with the Pathlore LMS allows our medical professionals to allocate more time to serving individuals needing medical care,” said Sandra Tolson, manager of the Information Services Training division at the University of North Carolina Health Care System. “With Pathlore’s software suite in place, we’ve trimmed 50 percent off the time it takes to orient new medical staff on a number of regulatory, procedural and safety topics. Now we can make better use of their availability for topics requiring hands-on and personal involvement, thus completing the orientation curriculum much more efficiently.

Tolson added, “We are also finding ways to compress the time it takes for nursing orientation and annual education required by all clinicians and employees within the health care system, so they can focus on patient care.”

Before implementing Pathlore’s solution, training professionals in each of UNC Health Care System’s 19 training groups had their own techniques and administrative management processes for imparting the institution’s best practices. The UNC Health Care System implemented Pathlore’s product to bring together training that ranged from instruction mandated by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to courses required by human resources and administration management to classes covering technical and clinical systems.

The Pathlore LMS suite has standardized training across the health system; so that, employees and medical staff have one place to complete online courses, view class schedules for self-enrollment or cancellation, maintain their own learning plan and track completion of requirements on their personal transcript.
