"We've enhanced it," says Allan Zahara, director of Healthcare Solutions at Dual Code.
"Hospitals and healthcare organizations have specific needs around educational compliance - such as infection control, patient safety, workplace hazards, etc. "We've built those feature sets in Moodle to meet the needs of the Canadian healthcare sector." Zahara said the company started customizing Moodle around 2009, focusing on recognizing particular needs of hospitals and healthcare organizations, like "tracking mandatory due dates for employees as well as renewal dates." "We've partnered with 20+ organizations, including Montfort Hospital," says Zahara. Asked how Dual Code clients are using their Moodle-based Healthcare Edition, Zahara said one example is hospitals collecting umbilical cord blood for the Canadian Blood Services. "They take it at their own speed, using individual learning paths, and they can do it for a low cost," adds Zahara, noting this avoids travel and other expenses they might otherwise incur. "Healthcare organizations are being asked to do more with less," says Zahara.
