CHICAGO, Aug. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BenchPrep, the configurable cloud-based learning platform for nonprofits, corporations, and training organizations, has today announced a strategic partnership with Relias, a trusted partner to more than 10,000 healthcare organizations across the continuum of care. With this partnership, Relias will leverage BenchPrep’s industry-leading platform to offer interactive certification test prep tools to their clients. Initially the agreement will cover three nursing specialty programs: Skin and Wound Management, Ostomy Management Specialist, and Acute/Critical Care Nursing (CCRN).

The partnership will enable original content developed by Relias to be presented as individualized study plans that include flash cards, practice exams, and real time progress feedback, which in conjunction with Relias’ existing learning tools, will give healthcare professionals a single solution that fully prepares them for their certification exam.

In September, 2018, Relias acquired the healthcare division of OnCourse Learning, bringing the total number of hospitals using Relias solutions to over 2,000 and a post-acute care client roster of over 5,000. In addition, Relias offers a comprehensive library of more than 7,200 online courses, live training sessions and certifications for medical professionals, making it the broadest and deepest online course library in healthcare. Relias’ unique combination of tools helps healthcare organizations reduce variation in care, lower healthcare costs and improve the quality of care. With this new partnership, Relias will now be leveraging BenchPrep’s premium online learning platform to deliver a best-in-class certification test preparation experience for healthcare professionals.

“The quality of training healthcare professionals receive has a direct impact on the quality of care they provide,” said Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias. “Our partnership with BenchPrep reflects our commitment to positively impact lives by providing the best solutions possible so all patients receive optimum care.”  

Relias identified several elements of the BenchPrep platform as particularly appealing and relevant for their clients, including daily study goals based on exam date, real-time progress and performance data, full-length practice exams, and interactive teaching methods that are fun and engaging, which boosts knowledge retention.

“We are really excited to be supporting Relias in their commitment to reducing variation in care,” said Ashish Rangnekar, co-founder and CEO of BenchPrep. “By ensuring that healthcare professionals are provided with the engaging tools they need to succeed in their continuing education, we can help close the gap between the current workforce demand in healthcare and providers with requisite skill sets.”
