careLearning is a nonprofit organization formed more than a decade ago which is owned and operated by more than 40 state hospital associations including NJHA. These associations work in partnership to offer a comprehensive workforce education management solution to member hospitals with an affordable price and convenient online platform.

Over 280 hospitals and healthcare organizations nationally use careLearning for their employee education needs. Virtually all of these organizations offer the On-Line Health and Safety Compliance Training Series to their employees to meet their Joint Commission/OSHA requirements.

careLearning provides:

  • A powerful underlying database which contains data captured from employee education activity. The database resides at the hospital location and not at careLearning.  Participating hospitals maintain ownership and control of this data.
  • Capability to track online activity as well as in-service education sessions.
  • A utility which easily updates the database with changes in payroll so new staff additions and deletions are accurately updated within the database.
  • The ability to develop and publish “private courses” using hospital-specific content. Virtually all participating hospitals utilize this money-saving benefit.  
  • Ready access with no long-term contractual commitments.

On September 8, 2016 CMS finalized Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers. Health care providers and suppliers affected by this rule must comply and implement all regulations on November 16, 2017. The purpose of the rule is to establish national emergency preparedness requirements to ensure adequate planning for both natural and man-made disasters, and coordination with federal, state, tribal, regional and local emergency preparedness systems.

Faculty from CMS Region 2 will provide a review of the provisions that apply to all 17 provider types affected by the final rule, followed by breakout sessions focused on nursing homes and hospitals. Emphasis will be focused on achieving compliance and integrating the Emergency Preparedness regulations into the conditions or requirements for certification.
