You can distribute eLearning content from your own securely hosted server to any LMS, even with EHR service limitations.
We’ve seen it before — you want to distribute licensed Electronic Health Record (EHR) content to your organization’s hosted Learning Management System (LMS), but unless your LMS provider signs the EHR indemnity agreement, you’re not able to take full advantage of the content. Whether you are implementing a brand new EHR or your hospital is switching LMS providers, you’ll likely face obstacles getting both systems to work together. In some cases, it’s difficult or impossible to manage your EHR training on external servers. If you’re on a hosted LMS, you might be out of luck.
Option 1: Difficult workarounds that weaken your training efforts
You could try using workarounds like posting screenshots coupled with self-reporting from your learners outside of your LMS, or you can try using the LMS but you have to remove all of the EHR images from the course. Neither of these options are ideal, and worse, both can negatively affect the outcomes of your training.
Option 2: Easily manage full-feature EHR training content on your servers
A better solution is Rustici Software’s Content Controller. Our software allows you to keep control of the EHR training content on your servers and still use your current LMS to deliver and track the training. It’s the best of both worlds-enables your hospital to meet the EHR content ownership requirements without having to deliver the training outside of your LMS or sacrifice the quality of the courseware.
Content Controller delivers training via a proxy package, giving you the ability to store sensitive EHR training content on your own private servers, while learners access the training through the LMS. Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and nine of our other healthcare customers use Content Controller to solve this exact problem.
Now you can deliver EHR training to the SaaS-based LMS you choose, with the added benefits of centralizing and managing your training content.
