At the health IT conference HIMSS 2016 this week, Infor is noting its growing momentum in the healthcare sector, with customer adoption of cloud-based applications adding to the success.
Healthcare applications for human capital management, enterprise financial management, supply chain management, deep analytics and interoperability, have contributed to nearly 450 new or expanded relationships in 2015. These include Children's Health, UNC Health, Jackson Health System, Confluence Health, Memorial Health System and Liberty Healthcare Management.
Infor continues to see adoption of cloud solutions across the healthcare industry. Infor's healthcare division completed 153% more cloud-based new business transactions in 2015 than in 2014.
"When we moved to new architecture using the cloud as our driving force, we pulled out about $400,000 in annual operating expenses," said Bill Hofrichter, chief operating officer, Concordia Plan Services. "Ultimately, the Infor cloud solution was much more efficient operationally, and also was a much more cost efficient process."
Infor CloudSuite Healthcare offers visibility into every facet of an organization, all within a secure infrastructure designed to address the needs of community hospitals, integrated delivery networks, academic medical centers, children's hospitals, long-term care facilities, sub-acute care, outpatient clinics, and payers. With a simple upgrade program, organizations have a clear and prescriptive path for upgrading to Infor CloudSuite Healthcare, on Amazon Web Services (AWS), with new functionality and capabilities never before possible such as next generation analytics, mobile, and collaboration technologies for increased efficiencies and productivity.
In addition, Infor clinical interoperability solutions help providers put the patient at the center of their care model. With Infor Cloverleaf, organizations can make better operational, financial, and clinical decisions by enabling users to share information and patient data across disparate systems such as EMR and ERP data. With data exchange capabilities and new insights, healthcare organizations can improve the management of clinical summary exchanges, support non-electronic medical record (EMR) providers, facilitate referrals and consults, and share a consolidated view of a patient's record. Infor business intelligence applications also deliver meaningful industry-driven analytics to identify cost savings opportunities, improve hiring and personnel management, and increase collaboration with analytics built by healthcare experts for the healthcare industry.
"Infor continues to be a top choice for healthcare organizations because we are a team of industry subject-matter experts that understands the nuances, intricacies and demands it takes to operate a healthcare enterprise from a business perspective while keeping patient care at the heart of every decision," said Mike Poling, Infor Healthcare general manager. "As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, organizations need a single source of truth that offers improved rich data insights, organizational alignment, and real-time connectivity. This is what Infor delivers."
