News From POC

The SYNAPSE Electronic Health Record (EHR) project for Mountain View Hospital, MVH-affiliated clinics, and Idaho Falls Community Hospital is embarking on a transformational journey that will ensure our status as a leader in healthcare. Our organizations will transform from isolated systems to one consistent, integrated system. Virtually every employee and provider who cares for our community will be part of this journey.

To prepare, the SYNAPSE team is implementing a hybrid learning experience, or a Learning Journey, consisting of both self-driven virtual components as well as in-person learning labs that best align with your role.

Most employees should have received their login information. Please take a few minutes to watch the videos from Stage 1. We will be continually sending out more information about this process. In the meantime, if you have any questions or are unable to access Stage 1, please contact Aimee Boyd, Synapse Training Coordinator, at

Your Top 10 Questions about HealthStream, ANSWERED!


Q:  It’s difficult to complete courses while I am taking care of patients.  How can I get my classes done?
A:  Contact the Education Department!  We can schedule you for a time to come and complete courses in our offices.

You can also access HealthStream from home at


Q:  Why can’t I hear the audio in the courses when I am completing them at work?

A:  Some computers do not have speakers.  We recommend each department have available speakers or headphones for learning.


Q:  Why isn’t the education offered aimed at my specific work setting?

A:  As we continue to grow our LMS, we will be adding more and more department-specific courses!


Q:  Why was it difficult to tell when I was finished with the Fire Drill game?

A:  The game was assigned as an example of some of the things HealthStream can offer. Once the screen says “Game Over,” 

you just close the window, click “Provide Feedback,” and you can always access the game again in your “Completed” tab if you’d like.  


Q:  Why are we using our employee ID number instead of our email to login?

A:  The employee ID number is permanent and won’t change, regardless if you leave MVH and are rehired, or if you change your name.

Q:  Why can’t I have all my yearly learning assigned at once?  
A:  As new learning requirements and organizational changes occur, you may be assigned additional learning activities throughout the year.

You will receive HealthStream notifications in your MVH email when you are assigned courses in HealthStream.


Q:  Why is some of the course content redundant?
A:  As we merge our courses from Bridge into HealthStream, some content is covered twice. You are welcome to notify us if you find 

specific content that is covered twice.  We are attempting to streamline the content as we move forward so your learning experience is as 

efficient as possible!


Q:  What do I need to do to become an administrator in HealthStream?
A:  If your role requires assigning courses to staff, running reports, etc., please contact the education department to schedule a time to learn your 

role in HealthStream, and how to navigate the administrator site.
