Executive Director/CEO, AORN
HealthStream is dedicated to improving patient outcomes through the development of healthcare organizations' greatest asset: their people. Our solutions are contracted by healthcare organizations in the U.S. for workforce development, training & learning management, talent management, credentialing, privileging, provider enrollment, performance assessment, and managing simulation-based education programs.
We are committed to solving big problems in healthcare. From hospitals to long-term care and across the care continuum, there are challenges stemming from demographic changes, governmental mandates, and the need for higher care quality.
"Today, healthcare organizations expect industry representatives to be current on their safety credentials and, equally important, prepared to serve as competent professionals in all aspects of their role. Working with our partners, AdvaMed, AORN, and 4,000+ healthcare organizations, we are training HCIRs to meet this higher standard."
