We build learning communities in healthcare imaging
We believe that healthcare will transform itself with collaboration and well-honed technology.
When we started AltusLearn eight years ago, we thought our sole mission was to make money so we could support our families and build our business. After much experimentation and collaboration with healthcare professionals, we learned that our job is to build a community-particularly in medical imaging where patients get diagnostic tests, such as MRIs and mammograms. We believe that healthcare professionals and digital experts can ensure safe workplaces through innovation for the three million healthcare workers in the world’s Imaging Centers.
Our founder, Daniel Guerra, Jr., in Madison, Wis., built our technology company by hiring software engineers like himself with distinctive talents and similar work life dreams. Guerra and our growing team extended that instinct to specific learning communities in the past few years as the education industry made the transition from in-person training to the more convenient and less expensive learning online.
Our team could see that professionals in healthcare preferred online services—particularly during the COVID pandemic. Yet they reported that they wanted to get to know each other to share best practices. We piloted those efforts and other healthcare professionals joined our team, including physicians and PhDs in clinical practice.
Most content offered by AltusLearn is approved for Continuing Education (CE) credit by the Association of Vascular and Interventional Radiographers, an arm of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
In addition, our course offerings can help healthcare professionals and their employers’ meet requirements from The Joint Commission, the Accreditation Organization, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, the American College of Radiology (ACR), and the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).
Many clinics and hospitals purchase our premier product, the ImagingCampus, to increase efficiency and convenience for their employees as they complete requirements for their licenses. In addition, we offer additional products for supervisors to ease their workload in managing their teams’ progress in training.
Since 2019, we more deliberately engaged our communities with webinars, on-demand programs, badging designations, and a MR Screening Form utility.
We plan to offer gamified experiences and are exploring limited in-person experiences post-COVID.
