GREENSBORO, N.C., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prophecy Healthcare®, the nation's leading provider of healthcare testing, and Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare industry, announce a new integration that uses Lippincott's Nursing Solutions to deliver customized, virtual remediation plans within each caregiver's Prophecy Clinical Assessment results. This integration increases successful hire rates by seamlessly increasing a candidate's clinical knowledge, enabling them to learn from the premier evidence-based content found within the Wolters Kluwer Health product suite.
"Clients now have the option to efficiently remediate their nurses and applicants with targeted, educational resources using the latest evidence-based practices," said Ron Gonzalez RN BSN, Founder and CEO of Prophecy. "Our strategic delivery of Lippincott content, based on a caregiver's knowledge blueprint, will help improve patient safety and enhance patient outcomes."
Prophecy's clinical competency testing solution identifies whether a nurse has the job knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide safe patient care, while pinpointing specific areas for education. Prophecy now offers a customized remediation plan based on these results. Immediately accessible in electronic form, recommended Lippincott's Nursing Solutions learning modules are displayed to the nurse to fill in identified knowledge gaps.
