Pharmacy Quality Solutions (PQS), the leading technology provider of performance management services, announced today it has teamed up with READINESS, a leader in educational training for students and professionals entering the healthcare market, to provide new courses on the EQuIPP™ information management platform and on pharmacy quality improvement concepts. Course training for pharmacists and their staffs involves watching EQuIPP™ Educational Library videos and testing their understanding of the platform and the importance of quality improvement in patient care.

Five courses are currently available in the PQS eLearning Center to all registered READINESS users and can be accessed via the PQS website’s Learning Connection page. Educational Modules include “EQuIPP™ Features,” “Introduction to EQuIPP™,” “Performance Measure Overview,” “Performance Measure Spotlight,” and “Quality and Healthcare.”

“It’s been a pleasure working with READINESS to craft unique courses that dive into the inner workings of EQuIPP™ and teach the value of pharmacy quality,” says PQS Vice President of Client Relations and Services Todd Sega, PharmD.

“By syncing the EQuIPP™ Educational Videos with the READINESS eLearning platform, we were able to create a dynamic program for pharmacies interested in getting the most out of EQuIPP™,” says READINESS Director of Education and Clinical Programs Shannon Staton, Pharm.D., MBA, RPh.

PQS Chief Executive Officer Jeff Newell, RPh added, “Education is a continual process for pharmacists and their pharmacy teams, and we are happy that READINESS allows us at PQS to reach a wider audience and train them on how to improve pharmacy quality.”
