Learning Management System

What is a learning management system?

A learning management system, or LMS, is a software platform that facilitates education and development. In particular, learning management systems store, deliver and track training content. Most organizations across many fields, including healthcare, use learning management systems to support employee education.  

Why are learning management systems important to healthcare?

Learning management systems are important to healthcare because they let healthcare providers effectively and efficiently manage, administer and participate in ongoing learning programs. The benefits of learning through an LMS include less time away from clinical care and better training outcomes.  

Healthcare organizations can often reduce training expenses by switching from classroom-based training to online education with the support of a learning management system.
