GeoLearning, Inc., an application service provider (ASP) of enterprise learning management systems and elearning content, has developed a strategic content partnership with Medcom, Inc., a producer of online healthcare education and nursing continuing education programs. Under the terms of the agreement, GeoLearning will resell and host Medcom's library of 150 SCORM-compliant elearning programs as part of its elearning solutions for corporate and government clients. In addition to ANCC-certified continuing education courses for nurses, the Medcom library includes mandatory update programs for all employees covering JCAHO, HIPAA, OSHA and other regulatory issues, as well as state-mandated courses.
The partnership has resulted in a 3-year LMS and content contract with SwedishAmerican Health System, a not-for-profit, locally governed health care system headquartered in Rockford, IL. SwedishAmerican will deploy the GeoHealthcare LMS platform, a hosted learning management system developed for healthcare organizations, to deliver and manage Medcom's continuing nursing education content across its healthcare network.
