Infor Continues to Experience Significant Growth in Healthcare

Customer Adoption of Cloud-Based Healthcare Applications Adds to Success

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 29, 2016) - Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced significant success for its healthcare business unit at HIMSS 2016. Healthcare applications for human capital management, enterprise financial management, supply chain management, deep analytics and interoperability, have contributed to nearly 450 new or expanded relationships in 2015. These include Children's Health, UNC Health, Jackson Health System, Confluence Health, Memorial Health System and Liberty Healthcare Management. The company continues to see adoption of Infor cloud solutions across the healthcare industry. Infor's healthcare division completed 153 percent more cloud-based new business transactions in 2015 than in 2014.

Infor CloudSuite Healthcare offers visibility into every facet of an organization, all within a secure infrastructure designed to address the needs of community hospitals, integrated delivery networks, academic medical centers, children's hospitals, long-term care facilities, sub-acute care, outpatient clinics, and payers. With a simple upgrade program, organizations have a clear and prescriptive path for upgrading to Infor CloudSuite Healthcare, on Amazon Web Services (AWS), with new functionality and capabilities never before possible such as next generation analytics, mobile, and collaboration technologies for increased efficiencies and productivity.

"When we moved to new architecture using the cloud as our driving force, we pulled out about $400,000 in annual operating expenses," said Bill Hofrichter, chief operating officer, Concordia Plan Services. "Ultimately, the Infor cloud solution was much more efficient operationally, and also was a much more cost efficient process."

In addition, Infor clinical interoperability solutions help providers put the patient at the center of their care model. With Infor Cloverleaf, organizations can make better operational, financial, and clinical decisions by enabling users to share information and patient data across disparate systems such as EMR and ERP data. With data exchange capabilities and new insights, healthcare organizations can improve the management of clinical summary exchanges, support non-electronic medical record (EMR) providers, facilitate referrals and consults, and share a consolidated view of a patient's record. Infor business intelligence applications also deliver meaningful industry-driven analytics to identify cost savings opportunities, improve hiring and personnel management, and increase collaboration with analytics built by healthcare experts for the healthcare industry.

Liberty Healthcare is an organization successfully utilizing the Infor Lawson Financial Suite alongside key HR and payroll modules, and recently moved applications to the cloud. "Our decision to go to the cloud was very much to be agile. As technology changes, and obviously it changes very rapidly, we have to be able to keep up with that change as best as we can, along with supporting the end users that are using those tools on a day to day basis," said Richard Gallo, vice president, Information Technology, Liberty Healthcare. "Infor has been a very strategic partner. They are not working in a silo, they want our feedback, which is very important to us."

Infor's human capital management solutions offer tools to attract, retain, develop, and engage talent. Users can better develop employees, reduce staff turnover by hiring the right candidates from the start, align and measure staff, equitably distribute workloads based on patient activity, gain end-to-end support to schedule, assess, staff, assign, and track nurses, and truly transform HR services and engagement. Specifically, Infor Talent Science helps to identify top job candidates before conducting interviews, which is especially important in an industry that depends on staff to provide exceptional patient care. Leading organizations such as Children's Health in Dallas and Nationwide Children's Hospital are using Infor Talent Science.

"Infor continues to be a top choice for healthcare organizations because we are a team of industry subject matter experts that understands the nuances, intricacies and demands it takes to operate a healthcare enterprise from a business perspective while keeping patient care at the heart of every decision," said Mike Poling, general manager, Infor Healthcare. "As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, organizations need a single source of truth that offers improved rich data insights, organizational alignment, and real-time connectivity. This is what Infor delivers."
