Subject: Media & Services
Relias is cooperating with RQI Partners. The joint venture of the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical, provides e-learning programs for resuscitating people in cardiac arrest. In the future, Relias will market the programs to its more than 10,000 clients, and they will help save lives when every second counts.
Each year, more than 200,000 adults suffer cardiac arrest in hospitals in the United States, and less than 26 percent of those patients survive. It is generally known that quickly administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the key to survival. Now, Relias has taken an important step to enable people to practice proper CPR. The provider of e-learning courses in the healthcare sector has partnered with RQI Partners, LLC. It is a joint venture of the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical. The agreement, effective immediately, allows Relias to market and sell programs and e-learning courses developed by RQI Partners dedicated to the topic of CPR.
“Providing the most impactful training to our clients – training that improves quality of life – is our top priority,” said Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias. “The knowledge, competency and quarterly CPR skills sessions provided by the RQI program save lives. Relias is thrilled to add this content to our learning management system.” Relias points out that the Bertelsmann Education Group company not only offers its 10,000 clients the learning programs but also performance metrics and assessment tools that can help optimize learning results.
The new Relias partner RQI Partners considers the cooperation a great opportunity. CEO Clive Patrickson said: “We’re pleased to be working with Relias – a company that helps clients deliver better clinical outcomes by reducing variation in care and that shares a passion for improving patient outcomes – to market, sell and provide our customers access to our product portfolio on its Learning Management System platform.” This step serves his organization’s goal of extending distribution channels for its own content and products.
