Providence Health & Services and Greenville Health System have chosen Infor Healthcare to help them manage an end-to-end supply chain with Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management and Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) for Healthcare.
Providence Health & Services is the third-largest nonprofit health system in the United States. It is headquartered in Renton, Washington, and operates hospitals across five states.
Greenville Health System is a public nonprofit academic healthcare delivery system based in Greenville, South Carolina, and committed to medical excellence through clinical care, education and research.
Integrated with Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management, Infor SCE for Healthcare combines warehouse management, labor management, and transportation management into a unified solution with a common user interface. It also consolidates services, increases visibility, and provides tools for greater control of the supply chain at all points of care, helping to increase efficiency and cost reductions through more-detailed tracking of inventory. Users can also extend the value of Infor SCE throughout the entire extended care network, with capabilities in the areas of collaboration, social business, mobility, and analytics.
"Current industry conditions are driving modern healthcare systems to consider new distribution models to cut costs and improve control and visibility over their supply chain," said John Matera, executive director supply chain and chief procurement officer at Greenville Health System. "With Infor, our organization will be able to respond more quickly to changing needs and requirements."
"Infor SCE for Healthcare offers a solution to healthcare organizations to increase profitability by offering them a tool to view and operate the entire supply chain as a unified whole, enabling them to consolidate services and reduce operations and fulfillment costs," said Barry P. Chaiken, M.D., Infor chief medical information officer.
