DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire. To meet the continuing education needs of an expanding home health workforce, Home Care Institute of Atlanta, GA and In the Know of Durham, NC have partnered to ensure home care employees have the broad scope of knowledge and skills needed to care for the aging U.S. population.
Home Care Institute (HCI) and In the Know (ITK) have partnered to offer home care organizations a one-stop shop for quality continuing education. The founders of both companies are registered nurses with a combined 50 years of experience in meeting the learning needs of home care nurses and nurse aides. “At Home Care Institute, we specialize in making sure clinicians keep current with clinical competencies, home care trends and documentation requirements, while In the Know focuses on enhancing the professionalism of home health aides,” says Lu Post, president of HCI.
“We are excited to partner with HCI,” agrees Linda Leekley, president of In the Know. “Our companies have similar missions, with an emphasis on improving client care by developing a top notch home care workforce. By doing so, more and more people will be able to ‘age in place,’ living out their lives in their own homes.”
Home Care Institute offers more than 150 nationally accredited e-learning courses for home care clinicians, with more being added monthly. In the Know covers a wide range of topics for home health aides in their 200+ e-learning modules. Both HCI and ITK courses are hosted on a robust learning management system, providing home care administrators with human resource and continuing education tracking all in one.
“E-learning serves home care employees so well,” says Ms. Post, “as their work setting is out in the community. Our customers understand the value of continuing education that can be accessed by their clinicians or aides on any computer, smart phone or other mobile device.”
Both companies also strive to wow customers with superior e-learning experiences and exceptional “boutique-style” customer service. This includes offering in-depth demos to potential customers, creating branded portals for healthcare administrators, providing extended daily support hours and creating exciting, interactive modules that help learners meet the specific needs of their home care clients.
Healthcare organizations across the U.S. are already benefiting from the HCI/ITK partnership. Ms. Leekley states, “We are thrilled when administrators tell us that their employee participation in continuing education jumps dramatically. It’s that renewed excitement for knowledge that motivates us to create outstanding e-learning modules. Both Lu and I know that the end results are engaged employees and improved care for home care clients everywhere.”
