IHA realizes that keeping employees trained appropriately and ensuring their skills and competencies are up-to-date are constant challenges for hospitals. The cost of developing appropriate curriculum and searching for adequate instruction, in addition to finding the time to train staff, have led hospitals to look for alternatives to traditional education.

For those reasons, IHA, along with 40 other hospital associations and the American Hospital Association, partnered to create careLearning, a not-for-profit, Internet-based education delivery and management solution for hospitals.
Iowa careLearning statistics include the following:

  • 24 participating users
  • Six have been with careLearning for more than 10 years
  • The average IHA-member hospital has been with careLearning for almost eight years
  • 8,239 employees are using careLearning to meet compliance standards, with more than 166,357 individual course registrations
