Ontario Hospital Association Endorses Halogen Software

Halogen's Talent Management Suite for Healthcare the first and only talent management offering endorsed by OHA as "solution of choice" for member hospitals

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - Halogen Software announced today that its talent management suite for the healthcare market is the first and only talent management suite endorsed by the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) as a "solution of choice" for its member hospitals. 

Halogen's Talent Management Suite for Healthcare is based on best practices and is designed to meet the unique challenges of healthcare organizations. The suite provides powerful tools to help support hospitals with performance appraisals, succession planning, pay for performance, peer review (multirater) feedback and learning and development – all related to optimizing health human resources and improving patient care.

Erin Olszowy, the Human Resources Analyst at the Brant Community Healthcare System states, "Halogen has proven to be an efficient and cost effective method to assess, develop and advance all of our employees – including the Board of Directors and our executives – to their fullest potential. Our leadership group is impressed with the system's ease of use and functionality. We definitely have come a long way since using our old paper-based forms. Halogen has helped us streamline many of our talent development processes including our Performance Enhancement Plans and improve on our compliance rates. The partnership between the OHA and Halogen is an added benefit, as we will be able to integrate our work on LDI with our existing talent management templates to ensure the success of our program. We highly recommend Halogen to fellow OHA members."

The OHA selected Halogen to help its member hospitals execute better talent management programs, and support the initiatives of OHA's Leadership Development Institute (LDI). The LDI is focused on helping member hospitals create strong leaders by enhancing their skills. OHA member organizations participating in the LDI initiative will integrate standard competencies into their talent management processes for five leadership positions. 

"Advancing the use of leading practices in leadership development is one of the OHA's core priorities and is a key activity of our LDI," said Tom Closson, President and CEO of the Ontario Hospital Association. "Halogen Software's talent management suite will be a useful tool to help our member hospitals continue driving leadership development and employee performance."

Halogen's healthcare specific performance management solution has been endorsed by other healthcare leaders as well. In addition to the OHA, The American Hospital Association (AHA) has identified and exclusively endorsed Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare as its employee performance and talent management solution of choice for member hospitals and healthcare organizations across the United States.
