New Online Training Offers "A La Carte" Options

Published: Tuesday, August 23, 2005 - 22:00

Medical Consultants Network Inc. recently announced a different approach to pricing and delivering its interactive lessons. By offering flexibility, its users can access any specific training course with a la carte options.MCN Training Solutions represents a new business model for training, with interactive lessons and the ability to select specific training courses on demand. Courses are offered in packages by specific function and type of expertise, such as “clinical skills” or “Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.” There are 200 courses available, and most are available for one dollar per person or less.

Course subjects include:

  • Clinical programs designed by clinicians for clinicians
  • Accurate and up-to-the-minute regulatory courses
  • Risk management programs for clinical staff
  • Compliance courses covering JCAHO, OSHA, FDA and other regulatory bodies
  • Unit-specific and care-specific professional development

“This readily available, Web-based e-leaning training content is always current and exceptionally affordable,” says Amanda Valeur, MCN founder and president. “Above all, MCN Training Solutions offers many advantages that add value to a facility’s training investment, particularly due to our ability to provide flexible options, whereby users can define their own solution and select one course or a combination of courses to meet their needs.”

The MCN learning management system is offered as part of MCN Training Solutions, but customers aren’t required to only use the MCN platform. MCN’s reports can be integrated seamlessly with other learning management systems. In addition, users can add their own proprietary material alongside MCN’s course content.

MCN is a provider of health care compliance solutions. For more information, visit www.mcnhealthcare.com.
