PEPconnections from Siemens Healthineers Supports Healthcare Providers in Continuous Workforce Education

Siemens HealthineersNothing is as constant as change - and the healthcare arena is currently changing more rapidly than any other industry. Advances in technology, shifts in demographics, and the constant competitive necessity to upgrade workforce skills - the current speed of change means that employees need to be trained continuously. But caregivers cannot easily take time off from work to attend a training course for many hours or even days. And the cost of establishing and maintaining physical training centers is high. However, education is fundamental. It is a matter of staying relevant and competitive in the market but more important providing the best possible patient care. For that reason, Siemens Healthineers expanded its premium subscription for workforce education management, PEPconnections, with a Virtual Library, which provides customers with the ability to add their own learning content to their group.

With PEPconnections institutions can easily manage their workforce education, design learning plans, manage, assign and administer online training and professional development activities for employee groups in hospitals and laboratories. Importantly, it does not matter whether the learning activities were developed by Siemens Healthineers, the institution itself, or any other source. Customers now can easily upload their own content as PDFs, videos, documents or links to the Virtual Library. Following upload, items in the Virtual Library are available for general usage or can be assigned to group members through a new or existing learning plan. PEPconnections allows subscribers to manage staff competency and skills - supporting them in transforming care delivery for enhanced patient outcomes.

"One way to always stay on top of the rapidly changing and growing healthcare market is to implement a business strategy that maximizes the synergies between lifelong learning and workforce productivity. Now, we provide a solution where institutions can benefit from Siemens Healthineers trainings but also have the ability to individualize their learning experience and upload their own content. PEPconnections provides a connection to knowledge in digitalizing healthcare that is designed to increase staff competency, efficiency, and productivity", said Janina Beilner, Vice President Application Services, Siemens Healthineers.

The basis is PEPconnect - the industry's first personalized education and performance experience for healthcare professionals worldwide. It provides medical professionals with customized training and professional development opportunities, with learning activities in topics on laboratory diagnostics, medical imaging and minimally-invasive therapy. The activities are designed at Siemens Healthineers by experts in key areas, such as application design, instructional technology and information security. Learners can also construct a learning experience personalized to their needs, and share their learning experience with others via a range of social media channels or groups they are members of within PEPconnect.

Almost 300,000 professionals are already using PEPconnect for their training and professional development needs in up to eight different languages.
