D2L Providing Learning Platform for AHIMA

Kitchener, Waterloo, Sept. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) has selected Brightspace as their learning platform.

AHIMA is the premier association of health information management professionals, serving over 103,000 professionals across 52 affiliated state associations and around the world.

“Our members are working at the leading edge of health data and information management,” said Amy Mosser Chief Operating Officer at AHIMA. “They count on us to deliver comprehensive professional development and continuing education opportunities. What we needed was a partner to provide and help run our learning management system, so that we can focus on what we do best – offering the highest quality content to our members.”

According to AHIMA, Brightspace offered several advantages over competitor platforms including:

  • Scalability: AHIMA needed flexibility to grow their number of users, which they anticipate growing from 35,000 to 50,000 by the end of the year.
  • Content Delivery: AHIMA was looking for a vendor-managed LMS to deliver their industry-leading content.
  • Mobility: AHIMA anticipates user growth to come from a younger demographic. Brightspace’s mobile experience was a key factor in their selection process.
  • Partnership: The teams from AHIMA and D2L have developed a strong and trusting relationship.

“We’re excited to partner with an organization that’s doing excellent life-changing and life-saving work in such an important field,” said Shawn Dean, VP of Enterprise Sales at D2L. “We feel strongly that Brightspace is a great fit for AHIMA and its members as they continue to improve their knowledge, skills and abilities.”
