Healthcare Talent Management | symplr Learning

Create powerful education experiences for your healthcare workforce

Our learning management software and courseware help your organization remain compliant while fostering employee growth and engagement.

Employees with access to continual development tools are 2X as likely to say they’ll stay with their company.

Proper training and development doubles an employee’s chance of success in a leadership or management role. The pursuit of career growth elsewhere is a top driver of dysfunctional turnover.

Improve outcomes with learning management designed for healthcare

Addressing knowledge and skills gaps in your healthcare workforce is not only key to attracting and retaining staff, it’s essential for optimizing patient care and benefitting your bottom line.

Consider this: Medical errors due to inadequately skilled staff, errors in judgment or care, system defects, or a preventable adverse eventÂą cause nearly 1,000 deaths every day.

And $200 billion or more is wasted every year on excessive testing and treatment of patients—a type of overly aggressive care that can lead to mistakes, injuries, and approximately 30,000 deaths per year2.

To better protect patients and optimize care, you need to provide ongoing learning opportunities to improve competencies and close the knowledge and skills gaps in your healthcare workforce.

symplr Learning can help you strategically manage and continuously develop your staff to help you meet compliance requirements and elevate patient care.
