Webinar Training

A Win - Win Training Solution – Immediate Return on Investment

American Health Care is pleased to announce that we now provide in-depth training and services via the Internet. This is a very affordable solution for staff development and return on investment in your automation investment.

We have found that short webinar training, comprised of 1 to 2 hour blocks, over several sessions, on specific application areas, results in better utilization of the application and an immediate return on the investment in workflow and volume. These training sessions are tailored for your organization to either refresh existing staff understanding, or to promote new personnel understanding . To date, the resounding message after conducting these sessions from facility staff, is that personnel learned something could be done using the application that they have been doing by hand. By involving other departments in the sessions, workload was saved for auxiliary departments which had never had training on the use of the system.

Studies for software application usage have indicated that the majority of applications are under utilized due to a lack of training and understanding of the software functionality and options. In many cases, when positions change the training provided to new personnel is conducted by the person exiting the position, based on their established routines and workflow process. Training onsite, requires personnel to have large blocks of time in their fast paced work environment set aside, and to absorb and retain a large volumes of instruction and information. Building blocks of training allow staff to retain and apply the knowledge learned immediately in their surroundings, as they are not concentrating on work building up while they are out of the office or in onsite training sessions. Annoucements sent on new features and functionality too oftern are disseminated, but due to workload the staff who can benefit from the new features or functions do not have the time to read these announcements thoroughly.

We encourage you to consider a tailored learning and utilization plan for your organization to yield more return on investment for your organization today and in the future. Contact us and we will arrange for and conduct an interview to establish the best program content for your facility and provide a training plan to meet the needs of your organization.

We employ a “fill-in-the-blank” methodology, so that the System literally prompts you through the screens you’ll need to access to get your job done.
