RQI Partners LLC, a joint venture partnership between the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical focused on delivering innovative resuscitation solutions to dramatically enhance patient outcomes across healthcare systems, is taking another major step in its goal to implement a new standard of resuscitation quality and patient care in U.S. hospitals.
The company announced today it has entered into an agreement with Learnsoft Technology Group (Learnsoft), a national leader in providing organizations with fully-integrated learning solutions through innovative and comprehensive information technology and business-skills training programs, to market and sell the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical's co-developed Resuscitation Quality Improvement® program and HeartCode® portfolio of Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support eLearning programs. Additionally, Learnsoft will provide RQI Partners' customers access to these programs on Learnsoft's healthcare-specific CENTERLINE® Learning Management System (LMS). The agreement is effective immediately.
Last July, the American Heart Association, the leading voluntary health organization devoted to a world of longer, healthier lives, and Laerdal Medical called for a new standard of care by shifting resuscitation practice away from course training once every two years to verified CPR competency for healthcare professionals provided through the Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI®) program. RQI is a self-directed, simulation-based performance, mastery learning and quality improvement program for healthcare professionals that offers "low-dose, high-frequency" hands-on learning sessions that provide vital CPR skills practice in 10 minutes every 90 days. Data is archived in the learning management system, which is used to track and document individual learner performance and competency.
"We're pleased to work with Learnsoft, a company committed to delivering the most comprehensive and effective learning solutions to enhance individual performance and maximize organizational efficiency, to market, sell and provide our customers access to our product portfolio on its LMS platform," said Clive Patrickson, RQI Partners' chief executive officer. "This move illustrates RQI Partners' commitment to an LMS-agnostic environment, as well as extending distribution channels for our product suite. We want to ensure healthcare professionals possess the essential skills to perform high-quality CPR on every patient, every time and are excited to partner with Learnsoft to further the reach of our resuscitation products."
Each year, more than 200,000 adult cardiac arrests occur in U.S. hospitals and less than 26 percent of adult patients survive. High-quality CPR is the primary component that influences survival from cardiac arrest. In January 2019, RQI Partners introduced RQI 2020, a comprehensive, continuous quality improvement program that will deliver higher CPR quality at a lower cost to healthcare systems and professionals.
"Learnsoft offers the RQI program through its software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based learning management system," said Brian Wachsberger, Learnsoft's chief executive officer. "These products expand Learnsoft's learning management suite of products with solutions for healthcare organizations to launch, track and report on clinical training and competency management for their workforce."
Currently, there are nearly 400 U.S. hospitals that have implemented the RQI program and more than 300,000 healthcare providers have improved CPR competency since the program's introduction.

公司今天宣布，已与全国领先的 Learnsoft Technology Group ( Learnsoft )达成协议，通过创新和全面的信息技术和业务技能培训计划，为各组织提供全面集成的学习解决方案。推广和销售美国心脏协会和 Laerdal Medical 共同开发的复苏质量改进®计划和 HeartCode ®基本生命支持、先进心血管生命支持和儿科高级生命支持电子学习计划产品组合。此外， LearnSoft 将为 RQI 合作伙伴的客户提供有关 LearnSoft 特定于医疗保健的 CENTERLINE ®学习管理系统( LMS )的这些计划。协议立即生效。
去年7月，美国心脏协会，一个致力于长寿、健康生活世界的主要志愿健康组织，Laerdal Medical 呼吁制定新的护理标准，将复苏实践从每两年一次的课程培训转移到通过复苏质量改进( RQI ®)计划提供的医疗专业人员验证 CPR 能力。RQI 是一个自我指导，模拟为基础的表现，掌握学习和质量改进计划的医疗专业人员提供“低剂量，高频率”的动手学习会议，提供至关重要的 CPR 技能实践每90天10分钟。数据归档在学习管理系统中，用于跟踪和记录单个学习者的表现和能力。
“我们很高兴与 Learnsoft 公司合作，该公司致力于提供最全面和有效的学习解决方案，以提高个人绩效和最大限度地提高组织效率，向市场、销售和提供我们的客户在 LMS 平台上访问我们的产品组合，” Clive Patricckson 说。RQI Partners 的首席执行官。“这一举措说明了 RQI 合作伙伴对 LMS 不可知环境的承诺，并为我们的产品套件扩展了分销渠道。我们希望确保医护专业人员掌握必要的技能，以执行高质量的 CPR 对每一位病人，每一次和利恩软合作，以进一步扩大我们的复苏产品。
美国医院每年都会发生超过20万例成人心脏骤停，不到26%的成人患者存活下来。高质量的心肺复苏是影响心脏停搏生存的主要因素。2019年1月， RQI 合作伙伴引入 RQI 2020，这是一个全面、持续的质量改进计划，将以较低的成本向医疗系统和专业人员提供更高的 CPR 质量。
“ LearnSoft 通过基于软件即服务( SaaS )的学习管理系统提供 RQI 计划，” LearnSoft 首席执行官 Brian Wachberger 说。“这些产品扩展了 LearnSoft 的学习管理产品套件，为医疗保健组织推出、跟踪和报告其员工的临床培训和能力管理解决方案。”
目前，已有近400家美国医院实施了 RQI 计划，自该计划推出以来，已有超过300,000家医疗保健提供者提高了 CPR 的能力。
