Infor announces alliance with Cerner
January 3, 2017
Tim Brown, Chief Business Information Officer
Infor is proud to announce its recent collaboration with Cerner in order to offer an additional hosting option for healthcare organizations. For more than 16 years, Cerner has offered award-winning remote hosting services tailored to the demanding needs of healthcare organizations. Cerner’s expertise in hosting solutions ensures that healthcare systems are properly maintained, updated and running on the right platform.
I’m going to take a minute to answer questions customers may have and take a look at the key benefits.
How will this benefit Infor and Cerner customers?
One of the main benefits is that Infor customers will receive an Infor-authorized hosting partner for healthcare solutions, which provides more options for deployment, resources, and cost savings. As the Best in KLAS recipient for Application Hosting* these past seven consecutive years, Cerner has the experience to help customers reach improved system availability and performance. This alliance relieves your organization of the task of having to upgrade and maintain your own system. Our customers can focus on their core business – providing high quality health care services.
How does this affect security and reliability?
Our alliance means better disaster recovery and back-ups. Cerner has the experience to help healthcare organizations meet regulatory and compliance requirements, such as HI-TECH, HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
How does this relationship spur innovation? How can Infor and Cerner work more closely?
The partnership allows for more connectivity between Infor and Cerner applications. It provides sales collaboration, support, and application maintenance services. When hosted in Cerner’s technology centers, applications will have access to ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) best practices, redundant infrastructures, and the latest high-availability technologies.
For our existing customers, they can move from on premise to the cloud, while having a choice—our cloud or Cerner’s. We have recently released Infor Clinical Bridge to make our solutions work together, and have experienced a lot of success with customers who are hosted by Cerner today.
We look forward to this opportunity with Cerner and are excited to see your organization take the next step toward achieving operational excellence.
