Infor Healthcare Named a Leader in IDC MarketScape U.S. Health Information Exchange Platform Solutions 2015 Vendor Assessment

Infor Cloverleaf Recognized for Configuration Capabilities and Scalability

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 03, 2015) - Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that Infor Healthcare has been recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Health Information Exchange Platform Solutions 2015 Vendor Assessment (doc #HI256040, July 2015) report. The vendors included in this report supply HIE platform solutions to private (enterprise) and public (regional, statewide, and countrywide) health information organizations (HIOs). Vendors covered in this report were chosen for their market share and penetration or their potential growth opportunities.

"Infor provides its customers an incremental path they can follow to build out health information exchange capabilities, starting with Cloverleaf Integration Engine for individual integration points to the Cloverleaf Enterprise Exchange for larger, more complex data integration and exchange needs," as noted in the report by Lynne Dunbrack, research vice president, Health Insights at IDC. "Customers report that the Cloverleaf Integration Engine that powers the HIE is very solid, extensible, and configurable, and that it is very scalable."

The Infor Cloverleaf Integration and Information Exchange Suite helps streamline the exchange of healthcare data within an organization, with partners, and across the community of care. The system acts as a common hub through which all systems communicate, eliminating the need for expensive point-to-point connections, and supports standard variants of all formats, allowing users to create custom variants based on the standards.

Infor Cloverleaf Cloud Health Information Exchange is a secure, standards-based infrastructure that integrates clinical data from across disparate systems and manages the wide variety of clinical records, document types, and content pervasive in today's healthcare community. With Infor Cloverleaf Cloud Health Information Exchange delivered as a service, organizations forego software and hardware licenses, reduce the need for large capital expenditures, and save resources, as well as get a secure clinical data repository, source system connectivity, a customizable clinical portal, MPI records, and public HIE connections.

"Health systems across the country are struggling to manage the increasing amounts of data coming in from multiple sources. To provide the best care and avoid unnecessary and costly redundancies, healthcare providers need to make sure that important information is available, and easily accessible, to the right people at the right time," said Steve Fanning, vice president, Healthcare, Infor. "Infor recognizes that true, successful data integration is more than just managing the movement of secure data through disparate systems within and outside a healthcare enterprise. It is understanding the industry today, and developing technology solutions that will help organizations combat the increasing data challenges of tomorrow, so they can continue focusing on delivering high quality care."
