Elsevier, a pioneer in providing eLearning solutions to more than 1,300 healthcare organizations, today announced its collaboration with Prophecy Healthcare, a leader in online nurse assessment and competency evaluation. Elsevier will distribute Prophecy’s pre-hire and clinical competency assessments to complement its Mosby’s Nursing Suite and Elsevier Performance Manager solutions to provide a 360-degree, online solution for assessment, staff development and competency tracking.
Prophecy Healthcare provides the premier nurse assessment suite that evaluates not only the knowledge of nurse applicants, but also their attitudes, personalities, interpersonal competence, and decision making processes. Prophecy is the only testing program in the healthcare market that takes a holistic, or “whole person,” approach to predicting job performance. The combined results help promote patient safety and satisfaction, while reducing internal conflict and turnover. Hospitals using Prophecy report that the quality of their hires improves and retention levels increase almost immediately.
“We are looking forward to being able to offer the Prophecy products to our hospital clients,” said John Schrefer, President, Elsevier/MC Strategies. “With the addition of Prophecy, our Elsevier Performance Manager and Mosby’s Nursing Suite products will provide our customers with a more complete solution and an increased level of confidence in the patient care provided by their staffs.”
Mosby’s Nursing Suite includes Mosby’s Nursing Skills, standardizing the way clinical and practical skills are taught, learned and administered; Mosby’s Nursing Consult, delivering the fast, accurate clinical information your nurses need; Mosby’s Index, enhancing patient outcomes through research-based care; and Mosby’s eLearning, advancing healthcare with confidence through continuing education. Elsevier Performance Manager is an online education and performance management solution that offers tools to better manage, develop and communicate with hospital staff.
Elsevier will distribute Prophecy’s nationally validated pre-hire healthcare assessments and clinical competency assessments, helping facilities to predict job performance of candidates as well as to identify continued areas for growth of incumbent staff.
“With such a great reputation for eLearning and performance improvement tools, Elsevier was a natural choice for collaboration,” said Ron Gonzalez, Founder and CEO of Prophecy Healthcare. “Our shared vision in assisting hospitals and healthcare systems reduce recruitment and retention costs by investing in professional development and workplace satisfaction couldn’t be stronger.”
Elsevier and Prophecy Healthcare are attending the AONE 45th Annual Meeting and Exposition, March 21-24, 2012, at Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Mass.
