"Enterprise software vendor Infor has introduced its Implementation Accelerator for Healthcare, a set of menus, templates and training content designed to supplement its Lawson software, a set of financial management, human capital management, procurement and analytics applications," reports Brian T. Horowitz in an eWeek article posted Sept. 9 and headlined "Infor Unveils Software Accelerator for Health Care Supply Chains."
eWeek breaks down the benefits of Infor IA for Healthcare and the new Infor EMS suite after a talk with Infor Healthcare VP Steve Fanning.
"The accelerator will provide workflow processes, charts and accounts training programs to allow health care organizations to get more value from the supply chain. The end user training tools help with implementation of the software, he noted.
"Health care organizations can use the new accelerator as a reference point to implement the company's Lawson financial software, Fanning said. Lawson applications are used in health care supply chains and in finance for general ledger records and processing patient refunds, Fanning said.
"… Infor designed the Implementation Accelerator based on a similar application it developed to connect its Lawson software to electronic health record (EHR) platforms such as Epic, according to Fanning. The Infor Clinical Bridge is powered by the Infor Cloverleaf Integration Engine and connects data sources in EHRs and maps them to appropriate fields.
"On Sept. 5, Infor introduced another platform for health care called the Infor Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Integrated Healthcare Suite, which consists of an information exchange application, a financial intelligence component and analytics feature for emergency dispatch centers."
