With Meridian, xG Health will be able to centralize its training programs for all learning stakeholders. Meridian will give xG Health the ability to deliver a "launch pad" for online training and the ability to easily manage all user access and engagement.

"Learning is at the core of our competitive differentiation," stated Herman Jenich, SVP of Product Development, xG Health Solutions.
