The current trend of Industry 4.0 has made innovative training environments a new norm; the emerging Online Learning Solutions support innovative learning through rich media formats to break down complex data in easier formation. Among those solutions, SharePoint and Office 365, is becoming widely popular because of its versatility and user-friendly manuals. It is being used as a document management solution, a help desk and ticketing solution, a policy management solution, a learning management solution and more.
In this article, we’ll review SharePoint as a learning management system, and see its document library feature, and will take into account how the users can activate video and rich media in SharePoint.
Learning management solutions
SharePoint and Office 365 can be used as a learning management solution or LMS by healthcare organizations to deliver patient education, push patient-focused guidelines, and video or rich media-based educational content. Here’s how SharePoint helps healthcare organizations to deliver educational content to healthcare professionals.
Automatic Training Schedules
Healthcare professionals have to receive regular training so that they can stay updated about contemporary insights in order to provide effective patient care. A SharePoint LMS assists healthcare organizations and professionals through its automatic training scheduling feature. Employees can view ongoing and upcoming training programs and enroll with just a single click. They can also view the strength of the training program and the waiting list.
Track Employee Training
Healthcare organizations can track the progress of employee training programs via reports. Using SharePoint LMS, not only they can see how many employees registered for the training program, but they can also track the number of employees that finished training or are on the waitlist.
Deliver Training Content
Healthcare organizations can use SharePoint LMS and save time by directly providing training materials to employees. The professionals working remotely can easily access training materials by using the SharePoint mobile app. The training material can be in any form, i.e., text, audio, or video for onboarding, patient-focused guidelines, educational training, etc. Healthcare organizations can also create an FAQ section and attach web links to assist the training process further.
Assure Regulatory Compliance
Healthcare organizations and professionals have to follow several state and federal regulations, such as HIPAA. SharePoint helps organizations to train employees to follow relevant regulations and make sure that the employees are adhering to them by providing a platform where they can share training content. The organizations can make sure that everyone receives training by activating the acknowledge function. They can even temporarily block user profiles to ensure further that everyone completes compliance training.
Evaluate Employee Knowledge
The healthcare organizations can use SharePoint to evaluate their employee’s knowledge through online tests on SharePoint soon after completion of respective training programs. The organizations can provide feedback on employee skills of differential diagnosis, problem identification, patient communication, clinical reasoning, and much more.
Healthcare organizations can create online surveys in SharePoint and Office 365 to increase the quality of their training programs. They can use MS Forms to create online surveys and share it on a group, the homepage, or individually to all employees. Employees can answer those surveys and provide their feedback; as a result, the healthcare organization will learn about staff satisfaction with the training program and can tailor their training program accordingly.
