Toronto, September 9, 2020 – Cognota, a provider of software for learning and development teams, today announced a strategic partnership with Relias, a software company specializing in education for healthcare providers. Together, customers of the Relias Learning Management System (LMS) will have the ability to develop e-learning courses and content with increased agility through a real-time digital interface. 

The Cognota platform, named Course Creator within the Relias LMS, extends the functionality Relias offers its customers to encompass the full lifecycle of learning content development and delivery. So, in addition to uploading, deploying, tracking and maintaining education and licensure, Relias customers will also be able to create and self-author courses.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership with Relias,” said Cognota CEO Ryan Austin. “Being able to help them reduce variations in care for the over 11,000 healthcare organizations and 4.5 million caregivers they support is an incredibly important mission and we’re proud to play a part in it.” 

This partnership will be formally announced by the Relias team at their premier healthcare conference, Impact Nation, September 15-16, 2020. Maria Samot VP, Content Development at Relias, and Austin will co-deliver a presentation showcasing the solution. 

“We are excited to introduce Course Creator to help our customers build efficiency and save time. This new feature fosters collaboration with subject matter experts, incorporates adult learning principles, and facilitates best practices when creating online courses,” said Samot. 

This partnership comes at a time when healthcare organizations are under increased pressure to deliver much needed training to their organizations. “Their ability to double the productivity of their training teams by being able to rapidly author and deliver e-learning content will have a significant impact” said Austin.
