Austin, Texas—July 22, 2014—InReach, a continuing education (CE) management solutions provider, has brought the sharing economy to the continuing education (CE) industry. InReach, which launched its Sharing Network™ to provide organizations the opportunity to share and expand professional CE content and course offerings, announced its customers have experienced a five-to-13 percent incremental revenue growth by making their courses available on this social sharing-based service.
Much like peer-to-peer services such as Airbnb, Kickstarter and Uber, the InReach Sharing Network is empowering organizations to exchange a valuable resource—in this case, CE and professional development—through a sharing model that allows organizations to expand their content base and reach new audiences. Earlier this month, InReach client 4Medapproved initiated a new training program for Florida medical professionals through the Sharing Network that allows the association to extend its thought leadership to the state’s professionals needing quality healthcare technology (HIT) education.
“We are pleased to offer our accredited online training to medical associations through the InReach Sharing Network,” says Brian Johnson, senior director of online education at 4Medapproved. “This joint effort will expand the InReach catalog to provide important HIT titles, starting with a course focused on Meaningful Use (CMUP) and another on the educational requirements for the HIPAA Compliance Officer (CHSP).”
The InReach Sharing Network is the only program that helps organizations share and distribute course offerings and programs. “Our customers find that they have an opportunity to fill the critical CE needs of audiences they haven’t yet reached,” said Sara Spivey, chief executive officer of InReach. “The significant impact that our Sharing Network has on our customers’ revenue streams is just a high note considering the value that our service brings to organizations and the professionals they serve with access to quality professional education.”
The InReach Sharing Network is rapidly expanding; it is home to approximately 5,000 titles across legal, medical and financial industries and 599,000 hours of courses, with many organizations relying on the Sharing Network for 100 percent of their content and revenue.
InReach is a leading provider of continuing education management solutions. The first and most widely used solution for bringing accredited continuing education (CE) online, InReach technology, services, and experience have helped hundreds of organizations expand their continuing professional education programs beyond in-person events. For more than a decade, the leading providers of continuing medical, financial, and legal education have successfully leveraged InReach to produce, manage, distribute, and profit from successful online CE programs.
