Health systems need innovative solutions to neutralize the growing healthcare staffing crisis, cultivate a diverse and proficient workforce, and maintain top-tier patient care.
290 Learners completed the new Patient Care Assistant (PCA) program using Amplifire’s new Workforce Growth and Development Library as part of UCHealth’s new blended learning model. The goal was to see if learners could successfully complete the PCA program in less time with better learning outcomes, leading to time and cost savings and a higher retention rate to remedy staffing challenges.
• 70% New hire retention rate for those who complete the program
• 50% Reduction in time spent in learning preparation
• Decrease of 14.6% in systemwide burden by open nursing assistant positions
