Baylor College of Medicine is a well-known health sciences university, healthcare provider, and leader in biomedical research. Located in Texas, Baylor has been improving the practice of medicine for over a century.

The Challenge

Baylor had done CPR training the hard way for years, and it was time for change. The traditional process of hiring an instructor was proving more and more cumbersome. Tracey Lanford recalls, "We were looking for something that gave us the ease of doing it on our own time… before using ProTrainings, we had a local provider come to the office and provide training for the whole group. That took half a day for everyone involved." The traditional model was costly in terms of both time and money.

Tracking was becoming more of a burden as the company grew as well. Independent instructors kept their own records, so Baylor lacked a single, comprehensive tracking solution.

The Solution

The ProTrainings platform fit Baylor's needs like a glove; it was both more affordable and substantially more convenient for the staff. The ability for each staff member to learn at his or her own pace was a big time saver. "You can even walk away from the video and come back to it when you need to… It's really convenient," said Tracey.

Tracking is now in one place as well, due to ProTrainings' cloud-based solution. Gone are the old days of wondering which staff members are current on their training and which staff members are not. Reminders are automatically provided to staff individually in their email, prompting them to the next step in the process as needed. In Tracy's words, "the availability to have records right at my fingertips allows me to see who is expiring, who needs to be renewed, and they can check their own records. I feel totally in control."

The Results

Baylor is training more staff in substantially less time than it used to take, and at a reduced cost as well. Baylor's story is similar to thousands of companies ProTrainings has helped.
