Skills-Building for Health Providers

Health systems can’t operate without people.  From frontline nurses to backroom lab techs, from doctors to data analysts, when health care workers have the skills and resources they need, QUALITY of care goes up and the health system works better for everyone.

At HAI, we recognized that skills-building and training aren’t “one-and-done” activities. Instead we worked to build health care worker COMPETENCY over time, providing on-site coaching and in-situ learning labs while strengthening supervisory skills within existing health system management structures.
