UNC Health Care, an integrated health care system in North Carolina, has selected the Infor Cloverleaf Integration Suite to better aggregate and share data across its network of eight hospitals.
UNC Health Care is a nonprofit system owned by the state of North Carolina and based in Chapel Hill. With more than 20,000 employees and 3,000 physicians, data integration is key for a successful operation, and Infor Cloverleaf will deliver the tools to exchange health information electronically and securely among physicians, hospitals, health plans, and patients.
UNC Health Care was looking for a partner that had a long and successful history with data integration at large healthcare organizations, with a strong product roadmap. Since UNC Health Care was already running Infor Cloverleaf at two of its hospitals, decision-makers were confident that Infor was the right partner to roll out a more modern data integration system across the entire network, and consolidate at the system level with a unified integration engine.
"Infor is a partner that we know can support us as we grow and change, and the company is dedicated to modernizing its solutions so our network stays current with the technology needs of such a demanding, fluctuating industry," said Mike Plesh, UNC Health Care IT manager.
Infor Cloverleaf provides solutions to help customers connect data and meet interoperability requirements to improve data flow. Healthcare organizations, like UNC Health Care, gain a clinical integration and information exchange solution that creates a sustainable foundation for organizations to proactively manage, coordinate, and share data across the care continuum. Modules such as the Global Monitor, Web Services Adaptor, Data Integrator, and Secure Courier will allow teams to integrate different formats or systems using a single platform and process, resulting in a reduced development cycle.
"Healthcare systems are consistently challenged with streamlining important clinical, financial, and operational data that is stuck in silos, and they need an integration platform that can facilitate the movement of secure data through disparate systems within and outside a healthcare enterprise," said Mike Poling, Infor Healthcare senior vice president.
