January 14, 2013 in Medical Technology
American HealthTech, a connectivity organization for skilled nursing, has announced the company’s MyHealthTech online community has surpassed 10,000 members.
Officials of American HealthTech say this new membership number makes it one of the largest online post-acute healthcare communities in the world.
MyHealthTech members have quick access to training tools, support, advance industry education and best practices to drive operational excellence, according to a press statement released by American HealthTech.
A learning management system tracks education progress of each member, officials say. Industry news updates summarize weekly news, eliminating the need to scan dozens of sites, periodicals and transmittals, floating key technology issues to the top.
“Keeping up with the industry – whether it’s payment reform, regulatory changes, clinical quality or simply news – is a constant challenge,” according to Teresa Chase, president and CEO of American HealthTech.
“MyHealthTech short-circuits the process by providing an integrated hub of lifetime learning for those who are new to the industry or seasoned pros wanting to maximize their technology investment,” says Chase.
Among MyHealthTech’s many benefits is that it enables a unified, industry-driven community, empowering members to save time and improve productivity by learning best practices from thousands of peers, according to Chase.
“MyHealthTech does an amazing job of enabling us to stay on top of regulatory issues, freeing us to focus more time on our residents,” says Melissa Randler, director of post-acute services for Fulton County Medical Center.
“I love the new training guides,” says Paula Alford, clinical systems administrator of Presbyterian Homes Services of Kentucky. “It’s easy for me to pull down webinar materials and customize them for our unique needs.”
