Memorial Hermann Digitizes Its Clinical Skills and Competency Checklist

Kahuna Workforce Solutions, the leading provider of skills and competency management software, has announced the deployment of its skills management platform for more than 14,000 nurses at Memorial Hermann Health System, one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in Texas.

Kahuna’s dynamic, digitized skills management platform will relieve Memorial Hermann of its paper-based, manual competency management processes. The software will allow Memorial Hermann to standardize its evidence-based content across the multi-facility system, consisting of 17 hospitals and more than 250 care delivery sites. It will also streamline onboarding and orientation, reduce risks of documentation inconsistencies, and enable transparency and accessibility of competency data for frontline staff throughout the health system.

“Kahuna will enhance our clinical competency experience and it fully aligns with our nursing strategy to optimize our processes, prioritize innovation and safety, and excel as a top provider of care and clinical advancement for clinicians,” said Bryan Sisk, senior vice president and chief nursing executive for Memorial Hermann.

Reduce Time to Competency and Support Nursing Professional Development

Memorial Hermann’s strategic vision for its nursing program transcends traditional competency management, with a broader goal of reaching beyond the health system and into the Greater Houston community.

“Memorial Hermann is committed to the Houston community and helping to develop the next generation of nurses,” Sisk said. “The Kahuna platform will help improve the transparency, autonomy, and efficiency of our competency management and nursing development processes for our nurses to better support them in their roles, while also ensuring we provide high-quality care for our patients.”

“We are thrilled to work with Memorial Hermann as they enrich all aspects of their clinical competency management practices with Kahuna’s skills management software,” said Jai Shah, CEO of Kahuna Workforce Solutions. “This collaboration unites two Houston-based organizations and demonstrates a joint commitment to enhancing the standard of health care through digitized competency management in our Houston community and far beyond.”
