Siemens Automates Education and Training-Plan Management with PEP Administrator
Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics launches PEP¹ Administrator, an innovative web-based software solution giving clinical laboratory managers a way to simplify and streamline administration of education and training programs for their staff. PEP Administrator is an extension to Siemens recently launched Personalized Education Plan (PEP) – the industry’s first virtual competency-based clinical laboratory education model that can be personalized for each staff member. Designed with an intuitive interface, PEP Administrator enables education managers to guide, plan and monitor the progress of every individual learner according to her/his specific competency needs, seamlessly consolidating continuing education from any source and automatically summarizing the progress of every staff member.
Beyond serving as a single source for consolidated training program management, PEP Administrator also automates the time-consuming administrative tasks required to achieve compliance. As such, organization-wide training invitations, status reports, certifications of completion and compliance verification are now all accessible in real time and are as simple as a keystroke.
PEP is available exclusively to Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics customers as part of the company’s Customer Care portfolio, which includes Services and Support, Education and Training and Workflow Management. PEP is currently available in multiple languages, including English.
