Inkling Adds Major International Health System to Client Portfolio
CHRISTUS Health Marks First Collaboration in EdCast Partnership
SAN FRANCISCO — July 7, 2020 Inkling a global leader in digital learning solutions, today announced that it has added its first major international health system to its client portfolio. CHRISTUS Health – which operates more than 600 hospitals, long-term care facilities, community hospitals, walk-in clinics and health ministries in the Southwestern U.S., as well as Central and South America – is deploying Inkling to enable collaboration among its geographically distributed subject matter experts (SMEs), so they can quickly create and update learning content. CHRISTUS Health then will distribute this content to all locations through the EdCast Learning Experience Platform (LXP), marking the first collaboration between Inkling and EdCast since announcing their partnership in March.
“Today the healthcare market is changing at the speed of light, applying new protocols daily to address public health concerns. It’s vital that all employees have access to the latest information to protect themselves and their patients,” said Jeff Carr, Former CEO of Inkling. “Adopting Inkling alongside its existing EdCast LXP will enable CHRISTUS Health to support creation of more interactive content, including slideshows, pop-up tips, knowledge checks and timelines, to ensure that the right information gets in the hands of the right people when they need it.”
CHRISTUS Health has implemented Inkling to replace an authoring tool that was too complicated for its distributed SME authors to use. Inkling will enable more than 40 staff and 100 SME authors across the enterprise to develop and collaborate on development of learning content. Use of Inkling, along with EdCast’s LXP, will significantly expand the healthcare provider’s ability to create time-sensitive, interactive content that can be accessed from the field on any mobile device when users need it.
Inkling learning content, referred to as Inkdocs, will be available to CHRISTUS Health employees through their existing EdCast LXP through Inkling’s Learning Connector. Inkling’s partnership with EdCast enables CHRISTUS Health authors to have their workflow connected within both the EdCast and Inkling platforms. EdCast SmartCards, linked as Inkdocs, will be automatically created. Then, leveraging distribution rules in the LXP, the SmartCards will be auto-assigned to the right audience of readers at facilities throughout Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico, as well as Mexico, Chile and Colombia.
“Our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. As a health system, we work to make ourselves better every day to live up to this mission. Important partnerships along with modern-day and engaging learning experiences speaks to one of our core values of excellence,” said Tobias Washington, director, Learning Experience, Design & Technology at CHRISTUS Health. “When our teams are engaged and can access important learning easily, it makes us all better and helps us deliver our very best to our patients, their families and all those we are privileged to serve.”
