St. Vincent Health Moves its Operations to the Cloud with Infor
Infor Healthcare provides simple implementation to newest Infor CloudSuite applications
Infor®, the industry cloud company, today announced that St. Vincent Health, a hospital system serving residents and visitors of Lake County in Colorado, has selected Infor CloudSuiteTM Healthcare to manage costs and enable better collaboration across the organization. Specifically, healthcare applications for financial and supply management will allow the organization to be more resourceful, better control costs, and ultimately better serve the Leadville and surrounding communities.
St. Vincent Health leaders recognized that moving to Infor CloudSuite Healthcare, built on Amazon Web Services® (AWS), would help them better manage their most vital resources: people, supplies, clinical data and financial assets. This implementation will help to reduce customizations, eliminate the need to hire additional in-house staff for system administration and maintenance, and provide visibility into their supply chain to know what was spent where and when on supplies. These upgrade applications will also help cut down on administrative work, leaving staff to focus on more critical tasks and ultimately enhance the quality of patient care.
“St. Vincent Health decided to partner with Infor because their solutions offer cost savings while freeing up local resources, and our teams are able to remain agile in an ever-changing industry. The flexibility and agility of Infor cloud-based solutions will allow us to keep costs down while simultaneously growing and continuing to provide superior patient care throughout our community,” said Corbin Logan, St. Vincent Health chief operating officer and chief information officer. “With one of the highest elevation hospitals in the world, we are excited about this new modernization program we are about to embark on, and that our facility will now have supply chain visibility to support our new surgical center and positively impact every patient and supplier we interact with.”
St. Vincent Health will be able to rely on Infor’s modern cloud applications built specifically for the healthcare industry to remove data silos in its supply chain and gain real-time visibility to make data-driven decisions. Infor’s integrated finance and supply management software in the cloud couples modern financial functionality with tools to track supplies and streamline order processes, creating a clinically integrated supply chain that will help the organization lower costs and improve outcomes.
“The healthcare industry needs cloud-based applications to navigate through challenges on limited budgets by improving efficiency, boosting operational performance, and optimizing applications for improved productivity,” said Mike Poling, executive vice president and general manager of Infor Healthcare. “Having this key business information together in real time will help decision makers at St. Vincent Health make more-informed decisions. In addition, through real-time data collection, Infor’s cloud-based specialized applications for healthcare deliver a system that can support an organization’s future needs, while still ensuring departments and facilities run efficiently and effectively today.”
