Philadelphia, PA, April 1, 2014

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that it will now provide OnSomble’s on-site services and online role-based professional development tools to augment Elsevier CPM solutions and help clinicians with professional role competency, obligations, training and development.

OnSomble’s tools, including OnRole, its role-based assessment and development software, were created to meet the professional development needs of nurses and healthcare organizations and support the professional role and self-development competencies required by the Magnet® Program.

OnSomble offers a systematic and evidence-based methodology to equip individuals, teams and organizations so they realize the benefits of a role-competent workforce working to the full scope of their licenses. “Our solutions are unique because they have the ability to affect results rather than just quantifying them,” said Enderson Miranda, President of OnSomble.

“We are looking forward to adding value to Elsevier’s already robust CPM solutions suite,” said Shawn D. Mathis, Founder and Chairman of OnSomble. “The OnRole enterprise cloud computing software is an evidence-based management tool collecting professional role competency data for descriptive and predictive analytics. By working with Elsevier, we have the potential to change the way nurses and other clinicians communicate with each other and practice their skills, which ultimately can result in better patient care.”

Elsevier CPM solutions help clinicians improve outcomes by promoting delivery of professional accountabilities through evidence-based practice, advancing the quality of documentation, fostering interprofessional collaboration, and assisting organizations in meeting national patient safety and care standards.

“Adding the OnSomble solutions to what we offer our customers makes a great deal of sense for us,” said Cathy Schwartz, Vice President for Transformation Services, Elsevier Clinical Solutions. “The OnSomble method enables our clients to articulate their commitment to service excellence through clear understandings of professional accountabilities, aligning organization-specific job expectations to those accountabilities, and assisting individuals, teams and their organization in measuring, tracking and improving the delivery of professional services.”

“Such professional role clarity complements our clinical tools that are intentionally designed to support the delivery of their professional accountabilities. Clinicians empowered to practice to the top of their licenses with OnSomble will find Elsevier’s interprofessional tools very complementary and beneficial,” Schwartz said.
