United States – July 18, 2013, 00:00 AM

Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced the Care New England Health System (CNE), serving the southeastern New England community, has selected Infor Healthcare to standardize, centralize, and automate business processes. Infor Healthcare is an integrated solution that will provide CNE with real-time access to information to help CNE automate processes, increase efficiencies and gain better and quicker access to information.

News Points

  • Looking to support a fourth hospital in the network, CNE turned to Infor to help better manage business processes that their old technology platform could not handle. In addition, the team at CNE agreed with Infor's implementation methodology and best practices approach.
  • CNE needed a flexible, easy to implement solution and the team was very impressed with Infor and its reputation in the marketplace. The Infor Healthcare suite of applications is expected to change the way a large portion of employees do daily work, including the entire administrative support staff at all of CNE's facilities.
  • Infor Cloverleaf will provide CNE with secure clinical integration messaging, monitoring, archiving, resiliency, and more cost-efficient interoperability via industry-standard protocols and web services. Through this application, the organization can aggregate disparate patient information systems and data, inside and out, across a wide array of source systems, message formats, and transmission protocols.
  • In addition, Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management for Healthcare will help CNE optimize spending by reducing mundane paperwork, follow-up, and administrative duties, freeing the supply chain staff to spend more time on strategic activities, such as inventory optimization, value analysis and vendor and service contract administration.
  • Enhanced data and information will help optimize process execution, insight, and decision making with in-context business intelligence.
