NEW YORK - Feb 24, 2014
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced Infor PeopleAnswers Talent Science for Healthcare. The Infor PeopleAnswers solution enables healthcare organizations to select, retain, and develop clinicians through predictive talent analytics, a cutting-edge combination of talent science and big data, which will ultimately help organizations make better clinician hiring decisions, reduce turnover, and deliver on the mission of high-quality, safe care.
Infor PeopleAnswers' cloud-based talent science platform is critical for healthcare organizations looking to develop top-tier clinicians including the lifeline of a health system - the nursing staff. Within every medical organization there are several types of nursing positions and specialized areas such as Trauma, Staff Nurse, ER, OR, Pediatric, and Nurse Manager. A powerful feature within the Infor PeopleAnswers Talent Science solution is the ability to compare a candidate's assessment results to different nursing positions and determine where he/she best fits the organization at the time of initial hire, as well as the candidate's suitability for future deployment to a different care unit or promotion into a nurse manager role.
"The nursing career is one of the most intricately involved professions in saving lives since their day-to-day activities directly impact patients, patient families, doctors, and administrators," said Barry Chaiken, M.D., chief medical information officer, Infor. "With Infor PeopleAnswers Talent Science, organizations can easily identify top candidates, keep them within the health system and improve the overall quality of care delivery. Given the fact that patients have their choice of providers, and social channels make feedback scores instantly available on health system experiences, top-tier nursing has never been more important to achieve the highest performance outcomes amongst industry standards like HCAHPS and NDNQI."
Leading organizations using Infor People Answers Talent Science include Tenet Healthcare and Florida Blue, among others.
Through this acquisition, Infor not only expands on its industry-leading end-to-end HCM suite, but revolutionizes nearly every element of the employee lifecycle by injecting science. The combination of PeopleAnswers and Infor HCM enable healthcare organizations to thrive in the era of healthcare reform by creating a collective and impassioned culture, helping organizations build and optimize a talented workforce of engaged and empowered employees.
