Saba (NASDAQ:SABA), the premier People Cloud provider, today announced that leading pediatric healthcare system Nemours, is using Saba People Cloud Applications  to accelerate enterprise-wide learning and compliance with its Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. Using Saba’s Learning Management System (LMS), delivered through the Saba People Cloud, Nemours is providing access to the critical training necessary to maintain high employee performance and safety.

Nemours’ robust EMR system, Epic, is used by more than 3,600 employees on a daily basis; compliance requires that each employee also complete training annually. Using the Saba People Cloud’s scalable and interactive Web-based training, Nemours is able to meet rising demand by its 4,800 employees for more flexible training. Standardized governance and ongoing course development has also accelerated the adoption of EMR technologies and as a result has improved clinical use of the EMR and enabled Nemours to be more agile and responsive to market demands.

  • Enhanced patient care and improved staff efficiency
  • Highest-level of compliance set forth by The Joint Commission and OSHA
  • Improved tracking of course completions  and signoffs

Industry recognition, including:

  • The 2010 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Davies Award, which recognizes outstanding achievement in the implementation and value from health information technology, specifically EMRs.
  • The HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 Award, which  honors hospitals that operate in a paperless environment and represent best practices in implementation of the EMR
  • Named “Most Wired Hospital for 2011”
  • Nine “Best Awards” for medical specialty care in the 2011-2012U.S. News & World Report edition of “Best Children’s Hospitals.”
