Infor CloudSuite™ Available for Healthcare Delivery Organizations

Healthcare-Specific Capabilities That Support High Quality, Affordable Care Now Available by Subscription in the Cloud

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 16, 2014) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 73,000 customers, today announced Infor CloudSuite™ Healthcare, offering care delivery organizations access to solutions within the industry's leading cloud environment. Infor CloudSuite Healthcare builds upon Infor's offerings available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), combining beautiful software with a proven and comprehensive solution that includes healthcare-specific functionality, analytics and an implementation accelerator for rapid time to value.

Through a flexible, subscription-based delivery model, and employee-based pricing, care delivery organizations can considerably lower upfront IT expenditure and total cost of ownership. Organizations can benefit from proven solutions for financial management, supply chain management, enterprise asset management, enterprise performance management, expense management, continuous monitoring, ERP to EMR connectivity, business intelligence, analytics, and human capital management tailored specifically for healthcare organizations.

"We were used to having total control over our physical installation. However, several months in, we've totally adjusted, trading control for peace of mind, lower risk and greater security, and reliability," said Carol Jones, director of Financial Systems, Billings Clinic. "Infor Lawson financial, supply chain and human resources solutions in the cloud provide us with the scalability to support our operations while having the right functionality with minimal complexity and lower cost of ownership. This was accomplished through the due diligence, time and effort of the Billings Clinic project team and the Infor Implementation Accelerator for Healthcare."

The release of Infor CloudSuite Healthcare provides care delivery organizations with state-of-the-art capabilities when utilizing the full suite of solutions to meet the needs of the healthcare industry and healthcare-specific business processes including managing complex clinician pay plans, tracking and validating clinical competencies and job specific performance reviews, grants management, coordination of recalls, patient charge capture, care workloads and assignments, pre-built clinical system connections and patient-specific supply reordering amongst many others. In addition, the suite can help significantly lower capital and ongoing investment in IT, while still providing the most current functionality for organizations to respond to changing needs, sustainable margins and comply with complex regulations and requirements while delivering high quality care.

Delivered in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) through a monthly subscription, Infor Healthcare delivers some of the most cost effective and proven cloud services in the industry. As a result, more than one million healthcare users access Infor Healthcare cloud solutions and customers experience a faster return on investment and a reduced total cost of ownership with greater security and IT performance. Infor CloudSuite Healthcare is more cost effective throughout the total lifecycle of managing enterprise software solutions because it precludes the need to purchase additional onsite servers, hardware, operating systems or databases, and hire supplementary IT staff or contractors for peak support or upgrade services. The solution also enables care delivery organizations to take on innovation at their own pace, upgrading at a pace that accommodates their unique timing and business needs with functionality specifically engineered particularly for Healthcare, delivering a dramatically different approach than other horizontal ERP solution providers.

"Healthcare executives are consistently tasked to implement changes associated with healthcare reform, adapt to value-based reimbursement, and find new ways to lower costs - all while delivering the highest outcomes and quality levels. The need to modernize the way operational and administrative systems are running has never been so important," said Mike Poling, vice president, Healthcare, Infor. "Infor CloudSuite Healthcare delivers a complete, scalable, proven suite of solutions designed specifically to help healthcare organizations run their business efficiently which results in quality, safe, affordable care."

Infor also offers its market leading healthcare customer base, which includes more than 1,200 organizations using Infor Lawson for Financial Management, Supply Chain Management, HRM, Payroll and Talent Management. The UpgradeX Program is a clear, simple path for upgrading or migrating Infor Lawson solutions to the cloud and to take advantage of all the functional enhancements in Infor Lawson 10x along with next generation analytics, mobile and collaboration technologies. Customers receive a completely new version of the Infor Lawson solution running on Amazon Web Services, plus all the services required for a migration or upgrade: software, hardware, OS licenses, IT operations, and yearly upgrades executed by Infor.
