4Medapproved is an approved educational resource for Healthcare Information Technology. The company focuses primarily on training, certification and other support of healthcare software applications. They are one of the only companies focusing on training and certification in Meaningful Use, digital healthcare topics and HIPAA and other regulatory compliance issues.
4Medapproved CIO Wendy Whitmore understood the market of Health IT training. The changes in health care standards and laws and the industry’s migration toward electronic health records meant that there was an imminent need for more training and certification regarding healthcare related technology. 4Medapproved’s former method of training on these topics was delivered primarily via online PHP pages and pdf materials which would not be practical for scalable training and certification. The question was how to deliver the company’s vision for training in a way that made sense for its growing student population.
A few challenges that 4Medapproved needed to address:
- The best solution for scaling its online education program over time.
- A platform with flexible upload options for the company's proprietary 10/10/10 learning method.
- A simple and cost-effective way to deliver certification focused content to end-users.
- An LMS with the ability to easily integrate the company’s e-commerce storefront for customers to purchase courses and pay online.
