NEW YORK - Apr 23, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Ardent Health Services, a leading hospital and health plan company based in Nashville, Tenn., has decided to expand its existing relationship with Infor, and implement additional Healthcare-specific modules to streamline the human resource management and financials function at the organization. Specifically, Ardent will benefit from Absence Management and Employee and Manager Self-Service, part of the Infor Human Resource Management suite, and Project Accounting and Lease Management, part of the Infor Healthcare Financial Management suite. With the enhanced capabilities to manage both HR tasks and capital spend, Ardent will be better equipped to centralize, and optimize business processes across its growing care delivery network.
