Healthcare Systems

The Open Collaboration Initiative™ (OCI) brings together local, regional, provincial and national healthcare organizations across Canada and connects them to facilitate the exchange of training material and learning records. By linking their learning management systems, these healthcare organizations can: 

  • Share training material with each other, for free or a fee 
  • Exchange learning records and proof of completion electronically 
  • Monetize their courses 
The OCI connects some of Canada’s largest research and teaching hospitals, as well as hundreds of smaller hospitals, healthcare associations, primary care and community care providers.

The Benefits of OCI for Healthcare Systems

The Open Collaboration Initiative™ (OCI) benefits healthcare systems by:

  • Reducing their cost associated with the development (and duplication) of educational material
  • Allowing professionals to spend more time on patient care by not requiring them to repeat the same courses over and over again at each hospital or health centre where they work
  • Leveling the playing field for smaller organizations that do not have an eLearning development team or in-house subject matter expertise to develop world-class educational material
