New releases in Infor's end-to-end Healthcare Workforce Management suite are bringing staffing to the nexus of patient needs and staff satisfaction.
Infor has new enhancements across Staffing and Scheduling, Acuity, Workloads and Assignments.
Built specifically for the healthcare industry, the Infor Healthcare WFM Suite incorporates time and attendance, resource staffing and scheduling, and patient workloads and caregiver assignments with purpose-built functionality, integration to the electronic health record (EHR), embedded mobile capabilities, predictive performance analytics, and a consumer-grade user interface, available on-premise or in the cloud.
New to the suite and available this month are Infor Care Workloads and Infor Care Assignments focusing on research and evidence-based patient care requirements and intelligent caregiver assignments. By focusing on predictive patient demand (nursing work) and not staffing levels or intensities, the resulting hours per patient per day (HPPD) metrics allow each patient's case to be unique. This approach creates a clear picture for staff-to-management communication and drives data-rich business intelligence.
- Infor Care Workloads integrates with the electronic health record, both prospectively and retrospectively, to allow the EHR to serve as the single data source for resource allocation and clinical documentation.
- Infor Care Assignments can help reduce the time required by charge nurses in prepping assignments before each shift and enable a more fairly distributed workload, increasing employee satisfaction.
Developed with a new and intuitive user experience, enhanced product functionality and built-in business intelligence, Infor Care Workloads and Infor Care Assignments will allow for greater integration across the continuum of care through the use of Infor Cloverleaf, a market-leading, integration platform that can facilitate the movement of secure data through HL7 protocols.
Also available in November in the Infor Healthcare WFM Suite is a significant set of new enhancements for healthcare staffing and scheduling, integrated with time and attendance, acuity, workloads and assignments.
"Infor is committed to delivering an industry-leading WFM suite built for healthcare, and is making significant strategic investments to address the high costs and complexities associated with the healthcare industries' workforce," said Dr. Barry P. Chaiken, Infor chief medical information officer. "The ultimate goal for care givers, managers, and administrators is high-quality, safe care. Delivering an end-to-end solution to support this goal, while lowering workforce costs, increasing care giver and manager productivity and satisfaction is a win-win for all parties. Infor is excited to be the only vendor to bring this WFM suite to healthcare delivery systems globally."
