Cary, NC, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CARY, NC, December 6, 2018 - , a trusted partner focused on reducing variation in care for more than 10,000 clients around the world and across the continuum of healthcare, announced today a partnership agreement with RQI Partners, LLC, a joint venture partnership between the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical. The agreement, effective immediately, will allow Relias to market and sell the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical’s co-developed Resuscitation Quality Improvement® program and range of HeartCode® BLS, ACLS and PALS eLearning programs.
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.
“Providing the most impactful training to our clients, training that improves quality of life, is our top priority,” said Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias. “The knowledge, competency and quarterly CPR skills sessions provided by the RQI program save lives. Relias is thrilled to add this content to our learning management system.”
In addition to the training content library, housed in its learning management system, Relias also offers performance metrics and assessment tools, that when used in conjunction with a blended-learning curriculum, can help healthcare organizations achieve better results.
“We’re pleased to work with Relias, a company that helps clients deliver better clinical outcomes by reducing variation in care and shares a passion for improving patient outcomes, to market, sell and provide our customers access to our product portfolio on its LMS platform,” said Clive Patrickson, RQI Partners’ CEO. “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 all patients and are excited to explore future opportunities with additional providers to further the reach of our resuscitation products.”
