INSIGHT Health Professional
INSIGHT Health Professional
Assessments for clinical professionals in the health sciences
Target highly skilled individuals with the professional mindset and reasoning skills to deliver quality care across your clinical specialties. INSIGHT Health Professional is calibrated for highly skilled clinicians who make high stakes decisions about patient care, who provide specialized services to patients or who manage departments.
Poorly reasoned decisions have major consequences in health care. That’s why hospitals and medical centers need to find and develop health professionals who can think well, communicate well and who are committed to providing quality care.
Talent Spotting and Development
Health care organizations must be confident they are developing a high performing clinical staff. Reasoning skills and mindset are measurable competencies. INSIGHT Health Professional test items are set in clinical and professional practice contexts that challenge test takers to apply their clinical reasoning skills. Comprehensive individual reports enable health care organizations to:
- Quickly screen the thinking skills and mindset of candidates for new positions
- Foster strong decision making skills and professionalism competencies for all staff members.
- Proactively identify strengths and weaknesses in the key skills and attributes that lead to quality patient care
- Identify performance potential and determine an individual’s fit for future roles and leadership
INSIGHT Health Professional is a complete on-the-job solution; it provides valuable objective metrics for the prescreening evaluations of new employees and for ongoing staff development programs focused on strengthening competencies. Assessments are easily administered via our secure, encrypted, online, multi-lingual interface through internal corporate intranets or your Learning Management Systems.
