Atlanta, GA, April 18, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Infor today announced Rush University Medical Center in Chicago has deployed Infor Performance Management (PM) Business Process Applications (BPAs). These solutions for performance management provide Rush with access to real-time information throughout the organization, eliminating legacy processes and providing an accurate view of the company’s performance.
As the health care industry becomes increasingly more complex, organizations like Rush are relying on insight gleaned from data to better manage hospital departments and improve overall hospital performance. Infor PM links corporate strategy with performance, enabling health care providers to align resources to support corporate goals.
“Previously, departments had to pull up stagnant reports that were not user-friendly,” said Rick Casey, controller for Rush. “That data would then have to be manually added to their individual worksheets or databases. With the new system, everything is integrated and much more efficient.”
“Healthcare's post-paper age heralds a time of immense transformation. Each stakeholder organization must assess its capabilities for digital realization…. Organizations that become true optimizers will thrive; those that do not will languish,” notes Gartner in “Findings for Healthcare Firms: Step Up to the Opportunities and Challenges of the Post-Paper Era”, by Vi Shaffer, April 3, 2006.
Infor PM BPAs provide Rush with seamless budgeting and planning, financial reporting, performance analysis, enterprise reporting, analysis, monitoring and notification capabilities that produce a unified view of the organization’s financial and operational performance.
“By bringing together many data sources to provide a single, real-time view, Rush University Medical Center is well-equipped to face the competitive pressures of the health care industry,” said Christina McKeon, director of product marketing, Performance Management, Infor. “Infor PM allows organizations like Rush University Medical Center to leverage existing technology investments and become more efficient, ultimately improving the financial and operational performance of the organization overall.”
Infor PM complements Rush’s current installment of Infor FMS E Series. Infor PM will leverage critical information within the FMS E Series financial accounting solutions to distribute and publish the data accurately and efficiently to departments throughout the medical center.
Infor PM is designed for companies in all industries that seek to better monitor, measure, and manage their business performance in real time for improved competitive advantage. Companies of all sizes use Infor PM to leverage the full value of their business-critical information and generate a fast return on investment. Infor delivers solutions for performance management with industry experience built in backed by a global, financially stable company in the market.
