"Relias remains committed to producing high quality, relevant training resources to better prepare first responders, providers, and caregivers across the healthcare spectrum, and we are honored to have been recognized for the second year in a row by Training Industry," said Shawn Barber, Chief Product Officer, Relias.
Training Industry's selection process was based on an in-depth evaluation and review of several key criteria, including:
Breadth and quality of programs/services and audiences served
Ability to deliver training in various modalities
Industry visibility, innovation, and impact
Company size and growth potential
Strength of clients and geographic reach
Relias offers more than 7,000 online educational courses for healthcare professionals, the majority of which offer continuing education (CE) and continuing medical education (CME) credits to help first responders and healthcare staff meet license requirements. Classes and curriculum are reviewed annually to ensure the courses meet state regulations and the stringent standards of more than 135 accrediting bodies.
"Our courses are driven by the needs of the industry and customer feedback," said Maria Samot, Relias' Senior Vice President for Content Development. "We have an extensive network of subject matter experts including physicians, nurses, social workers, and specialized instructional designers and developers to ensure the efficacy and effectiveness of our curriculum."
"We have seen the increasing need for training to extend beyond compliance over the past year as frontline workers have faced not only the extremely demanding conditions, but also moral injury as a result of it," said Samot. "Therefore, courses that focused on employee wellness – in addition to clinical topics such as infection control – have been a priority for Relias."
In the past 12 months, Relias published more than 390 new courses, including specialized training on infusion therapy, infection control, COVID-19, diversity/equity/inclusion, human trafficking, therapy, pressure injuries, direct support for professionals, and medication management. Relias also introduced new courses on suicide assessment and intervention.
