LOS ANGELES, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- UniversityOfHealthCare, a leading e-learning solutions provider, reported that it had an extremely successful debut at the HIMSS (Healthcare Information Management Systems Society) conference in Orlando.

At the conference, UniversityOfHealthCare showed how the combination of a Learning Management System, a Learning Content Management System, and off-the- shelf content from UniversityOfHealthCare could be combined into a custom solution for training and documentation.

Dr. Farb, the CEO of UniversityOfHealthCare, said, "We had overwhelmingly positive responses from CIOs, COOs, and a variety of IT, IS, information technology, and education people at the HIMSS meeting. They were impressed by our best-of-breed content and system available from a single company."

Dr. Farb continued, "The idea is to find the perfect mix of proprietary organizational content with off the shelf content in combination with a low cost delivery method for the thousands of employees that most hospitals have. The integrated Learning Content Management System allows them to place their own content such as PowerPoint presentations into an e-learning package. By offering an affordable system with no user fee in several enterprise and hosting options, we can meet the price sensitivity of the hospital market and provide them with more choices and high quality technology at the same time.

"Since HIPAA requires training to be documented, and that the training should be specific to the organization, an integrated LMS/LCMS can provide the perfect solution. For example, a company could get one of our off the shelf HIPAA courses and add their own policies to that course and present it as one single course. Or a hospital could load up its PowerPoint presentation on HIPAA and create its own test within the system-all without programming knowledge."
