BOSTON (January 15, 2021)—CareAcademy, a homecare and home health workforce empowerment platform, announced a strategic partnership with Wild Iris Medical Education that will further expand the company’s offering to include accredited nursing continuing education. By leveraging Wild Iris Medical Education’s American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) accredited and approved courses, CareAcademy will add more than 70 courses, representing more than 300 contact hours. Home health agencies of all types will now have access to skilled home health care courses from within CareAcademy’s market-leading training and compliance platform.
“CareAcademy is committed to enabling our agency partners across the entire care continuum to deliver the best possible care and improve their clients’ outcomes. This partnership with Wild Iris Medical Education further expands our reach to also encompass home health care providers including nurses, RNs, LPN, and more,” said CareAcademy CEO and Founder Helen Adeosun. “We are enabling these home health care providers to build on existing skill sets by providing them with access to courses they need to maintain their licensure and deliver excellent patient care. Wild Iris Medical Education has an impressive history of delivering online courses and evidence-based articles to healthcare professionals. We are pleased to empower our agency partners by creating new ways to access this vital education for caregivers.”
CareAcademy’s mission is to upskill and prepare direct care workers of all types to meet the growing demand for home-based care serving older adults across the post-acute care continuum. The partnership with Wild Iris Medical Education will expand its offering to include continuing education to help individuals maintain their licenses in nursing. With many direct care workers working long hours in care settings during the pandemic, CareAcademy’s mobile-friendly and on-demand training on its platform further improves accessibility for health care workers during this crisis and beyond.
With over 20 years’ experience providing online nursing education courses for health care professionals, Wild Iris Medical Education understands the importance of providing medical education in user-friendly ways. The ANCC accredited content from Wild Iris Medical Education includes state-mandated courses and covers numerous topics including wound care, diabetes, and pressure injury prevention and treatment. The course content is rolling out now across the CareAcademy platform and will be fully available to CareAcademy customers within the next 30 days.
“CareAcademy’s rapidly expanding customer base in the homecare agency market makes them a natural partner for us to work with to extend our course library directly at the point of need,” said Ann Johnson, CEO and Co-founder of Wild Iris Medical Education. “CareAcademy’s mobile-friendly platform will enable more nurses to access courses at their convenience and in turn help maintain their compliance with state and federal requirements.”
