Siemens Healthineers has expanded its online learning platform PEPconnect (Personalized Education Plan) to include approximately 1,000 new learning modules for medical imaging customers. Effective immediately, users can use PEPconnect to access training courses on Siemens Healthineers systems for imaging and minimally invasive therapy in seven different languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean and Japanese.
PEPconnect and its forerunner platform, PEP, were initially designed to offer training and professional development primarily in the area of laboratory diagnostics, with the company providing a separate set of learning tools for U.S. imaging customers via its now-shuttered Siemens Learning Center (SLC). Furthermore, PEPconnect caters specifically to physicians and medical technology assistants
In an effort to create a single streamlined virtual education experience for all healthcare customers globally, Siemens Healthineers has migrated the SLC imaging modules and their 50,000 users to PEPconnect, bringing the total number of learning modules on the PEPconnect platform to 7,000—and the total number of PEPconnect users to 150,000.
Additionally, Siemens Healthineers is offering former SLC users access to new social media features as well as compatibility with mobile devices. With optimized technology and increased search capabilities, PEPconnect allows customers to access education and real-time performance support virtually anytime, anywhere, and on any device, including PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
Nanci Wozniak, vice president of education services at Siemens Healthineers, spoke out the new offering, commenting: “We understand the need for easy access to education and real-time performance support in today’s complex healthcare market. Now, customers can access multidimensional knowledge through our intuitive interface using any device, and at their own convenience.”
