Virtual Training

Virtual Training and Events

From corporate meetings to conferences and workshops – connecting with your workforce and customers is an essential element of business. Virtual platforms can help you reach a wider audience; yet, most virtual tools have not fully captured the value and feel of a face-to-face meeting. Cooper Thomas’s virtual training and meeting services and next-generation virtual platform can help you get the most out of your virtual events.

With our virtual event platform, you can connect with employees, customers, and clients conveniently and cost-effectively. Our unique speaker-training program guides your presenters to deliver more effective and engaging virtual presentations. Our speaker coaches provide focused support to help busy subject matter experts become polished presenters. We also provide project management and program support for events ranging from single training sessions to multi-day conferences, as well as on-site support for virtual and face-to-face events.

Health IT

Health IT

Electronic health records offer greater access to relevant health information, improved patient safety, and sophisticated clinical support tools. Whether you buy a commercial EHR system or build a custom system, we can help.

Cooper Thomas supports all phases of the software and implementation lifecycle for EHRs, including development of business requirements, identification of technology options, modification of custom and off-the-shelf products, software development, testing, and deployment, configuration management, design and construction of front-end web portals and back-end databases, and user acceptance testing to ensure that applications meet the needs of users and administrators. We can help you streamline your business processes, cleanse and migrate data to your new system, develop training and communication plans, and assess the effectiveness of your systems and processes. With specialized expertise in the privacy and security of protected health information, we develop EHR access policies to guide the use of EHRs internally and the exchange of information with external healthcare partners.

Cooper Thomas is proud to provide services under this contract to all 141 VA Medical Centers and Outpatient Clinics throughout VA’s 23 VISNs. Our company and team members have over 30 years of experience in delivering quality coding, audit, review, and training workshop services.
