About the HLC

The HealthStream Learning Center (HLC) is Emory Healthcare's web-based, online learning management system. The HLC provides a mechanism to register for and take instructor-led courses, online courses, or blended courses and provides a tool to maintain educational records for EHC employees.

The HLC is Emory Healthcare’s singular source for the tracking of education for all employees.  Tracking occurs via course completion; therefore, educational activity needs to be represented by a course.  Courses can be built in the HLC to offer classroom registration or online completion or a combination of both classroom and online activities.

Anyone at EHC can make a request to create a course.  All employees who are providing education need to ensure that the education is not only tracked, but course completion shows up on individual transcripts.  To request course development submit the appropriate course request form available via the HLC Forms & Guidelines link in the left navigator/menu.

The HLC provides:

  • Registration for classroom-based courses
  • Online educational courses
  • Courses and curricula with multiple learning activities
  • Tracking of course completions
  • Tracking of learning activities that occur outside EHC

Three Types of HLC Users

Employees at EHC are given rights to access the HLC in different roles. These levels of access do not necessarily coincide with one's job title. All EHC employees are given Student rights in the HLC. The other levels are granted depending on one's use of other functions in the HLC.
