PeaceHealth Selects NetDimensions Learning to Transform Learning and Competency Management for Compliance

HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited (LSE: NETD) (OTCQX: NETDY)

NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited
("NetDimensions" or the "Company)

NetDimensions (AIM: NETD) (OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, announced today that PeaceHealth has selected NetDimensions Learning as their centralised solution for learning and competency management for its over 16,000 caregivers.

PeaceHealth is a not-for-profit healthcare system based in Vancouver, Washington, with services located in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. PeaceHealth includes a large multi-specialty medical group in all three states, laboratories, a Medicaid health plan (Columbia United Providers), and 10 medical centers. 

PeaceHealth was looking for a Learning Management System (LMS) to enable personalized training, eLearning, and orientation associated with the rollouts of EPIC Enterprise, and to efficiently manage both technical and clinical competencies for their employees, called caregivers. In effect, the new LMS would have to support all quality initiatives and process changes related to healthcare reform and do so in the most cost-effective and learner-centered way.

After a thorough six-month selection process, which included a robust RFP, detailed due diligence, and multiple scenario driven demonstrations, PeaceHealth's search committee chose NetDimensions Healthcare and NetDimensions Learning.

Jan Buhmann, Manager of Learning Technologies at PeaceHealth, commented, "In our selection process, which included both key stakeholders and technical experts, we spent significant time evaluating several products' functionality and interfacing capabilities. NetDimensions Talent Suite emerged as the leader because of its open APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), usability, integration of competencies and learning activities, and ultimately having the configurability to accommodate our EPIC implementation. We are looking forward to experiencing NetDimensions' implementation support to meet our project objectives."

Ken Wright, President of NetDimensions Healthcare, commented, "Healthcare providers in the US are currently facing many new challenges in addressing federal regulations, increasing employee engagement, and ultimately, improving patient outcomes and customer satisfaction. We are proud to be partnering with forward-thinking organizations like PeaceHealth and helping them transform their business in this rapidly changing healthcare environment."
