What Our Clients are Saying…

Compass offers case management-specific training and CEU's that are invaluable to all levels of case managers. We have it as "required" training for all new staff within the first 6 months of hire and are rolling it out as "required" for existing staff before the end of the year. The benefit of a standardized set of training modules that covers all aspects of case management is immeasurable to quality care. Thank you!

Compass is a valuable resource for case managers. It provides new case managers an overview of all educational needs to prepare for a new role/job, clarifies new information and regulatory changes and is a comprehensive orientation tool for managers and educators. It is very easy to use, set up new users and navigate. The opportunity to obtain CE credits is a huge plus. Compass is a definite "must have" for any case management department and is a good investment and reasonably priced for the value it provides to our department.
