Catholic Health Selects Innotas for Integrated IT Management Solution to Better Manage Projects and Resources

More Than 25 Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations Nationwide Already Rely on Innotas for Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and BUFFALO, NY--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Innotas (www.innotas.com), a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for IT management, today announced that it has been selected by Catholic Health in Buffalo, NY to provide IT project support for its four acute care facilities, and its ancillary health care sites across Western New York. Innotas offers cloud-based Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and Application Portfolio Management (APM) solutions that enable hospitals and other healthcare organizations to efficiently and effectively manage IT resources, projects and applications, across new initiatives and in support of sustaining operations.

Catholic Health uses the Innotas PPM solution to manage and record all of its project-related information, including status, resource needs and staffing. Innotas' PPM solution is especially valuable for allocating staffing for the many IT projects in process at Catholic Health, including ICD-10 and rolling out new VOIP closets for all of its sites. In addition, now Catholic Health can run reports on staff and projects by resource, and create projections on resource needs and allocations for 2013 and beyond.

According to Tony Pappagallo, Director of IT Projects for Catholic Health, "Innotas provides a very effective solution for tracking the time of our more than 140 IT professionals, and for project management, it helps us better manage our resources and staffing."

Innotas PPM and APM solutions comprise the IT Portfolio Management platform, which provides a strategic and operating layer that helps healthcare IT organizations manage new IT project investments, and support legacy applications, using common resources and tools. This integrated, layered approach provides visibility across the entire organization, helping CIOs and project managers maintain integrity between strategy, objectives, operations and results. It also provides financial impact assessments and highlights systems and resource contingencies across an entire portfolio of IT projects.

"Healthcare IT organizations are extremely complex, and growing more with massive regulatory projects such as EMR and ICD-10," said Kevin Kern, CEO of Innotas. "In light of this increasing intensity, hospitals need help easing the burdens of resource management and project prioritization. We provide a one-stop solution for helping first to understand -- and then to respond -- to evolving needs across the entire IT portfolio."
