Bozeman Health optimizes its technology adoption through employee training
As the largest private employer in Gallatin County, Bozeman Health is made up of more than 2,500 employees who provide care and support throughout the health system that includes two hospitals, several specialty treatment centers, and a network of physician and urgent care clinics and other facilities. After implementing cloud-based healthcare software from Infor to achieve the organization’s digital transformation, Bozeman Health sought to ensure their employees were able to stay on top of its new technology.
Bozeman Health went live with Infor CloudSuite® Healthcare in 2019, implementing supply chain, financials, and analytics solutions. With an organizational transformation rooted in technology, their journey continued in 2022 with the adoption of an AI-driven digital assistant, Infor Coleman DA. With the new ability to locate supplies in seconds instead of minutes, employees now had access to a tool that can prove to be critical in emergencies. They just needed to be trained.
Employee training drives Bozeman Health’s tech success
You might have intuitions about what you’re doing. You might even read a training manual. But being able to actually go through formal education on that topic with a real-life expert just gives you that next level of confidence.
Setting the stage for system success
Proper training is important for people to use and adopt new systems. Infor Education provides tailored training to help users, like Bozeman Health employees, learn how to use the system quickly so they can increase their productivity. Properly trained users feel more confident, which reduces the risk of mistakes and can make them happier in their job, something Michael Pollard, Bozeman Health Supervisor of Logistics and Distribution, learned first-hand.
“When I initially took over the business analyst role a few years back, I was thrown into it. Infor training not only gave me the confidence but also the technical skills to accomplish the functions of that job,” says Pollard. “You might have intuitions about what you’re doing. You might even read a training manual. But being able to actually go through formal education on that topic with a real-life expert just gives you that next level of confidence.”
