Relias Learning offers more than 3,000 courses on physical and mental health needs for healthcare workers across the continuum of care.
Swank HealthCare distributes online training for the acute care market, while AHC Media provides continuing education, publications and peer-reviewed medical information to healthcare professionals.
Jim Triandiflou, the CEO of Relias Learning, told TJ: “These acquisitions means Relias now offers healthcare providers the largest breadth of training courses in the world. They will have access to training for any care setting – ambulatory, acute care, post-acute care, and mental health – and for almost any job in healthcare: doctors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, therapists, home health workers, social workers, psychiatrists."
“We strive to be the global leader in online healthcare training. To be the leader, it is important to train workers in acute care. Prior to the acquisitions, this was a weakness for Relias. Now acute care training is a strength.”
