Sep 07, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
HealthStream, Inc, a provider of learning and research solutions for the healthcare industry, has signed an agreement with Nursing Registry Consultants Corporation to be the distributor of NurseCompetency's software-as-a-service, or SaaS, based competency exams and skills checklists to hospitals and health networks in the US.
These products expand HealthStream's talent management suite of products with solutions for testing and documenting nurses' clinical competencies. Through NurseCompetency, HealthStream will offer over 75 valid and evidence-based exams that cover a range of clinical competencies required for nurses in hospitals, including the areas of critical care, psychiatric nursing, palliative care, magnetic resonance imaging, respiratory therapy, among many others.
The library of clinical exams will be expanded as HealthStream assists NurseCompetency in the development of new testing materials. Along with clinical competency exams, over 55 clinical skills checklists will be offered through HealthStream, covering a range of professional specialties.
These self-assessments allow nurses to consider the skills required for successful job performance and correspondingly track their progress. Some of the areas where skills checklists are provided include endoscopy, oncology, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography, hospice, among many others.
HealthStream will provide NurseCompetency's clinical exams and skills checklists for nurses as stand-alone products, while future plans include offering them as an integrated solution through HealthStream's platform.
"We look forward to offering NurseCompetency's outstanding products; they add an important component to our overall talent management strategy for hospitals and healthcare networks," said Robert Frist, Jr, chairman and CEO, HealthStream.
