Healthcare professionals have to attend regular continuing education courses to keep abreast of the latest medical knowledge. Many job functions within the hospital require specific knowledge and the corresponding license/degree before they can be allowed to perform those duties in the workplace.
The IT systems allows healthcare organizations to maintain a detailed database of all employee education information, monitor employee educational requirements and schedule classes easily and efficiently. Employees and managers can use online access to register for classes, check course availability and review current license status. Alerts are sent to employees and managers when an employee’s license is about to expire, giving them time to take appropriate action.
