Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Memorial Health System (MHS), a community-based, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to patient care, education and research, and one of the leading healthcare organizations in Illinois, has selected Infor Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for Healthcare to better manage equipment inventory, improve reporting capabilities and optimize scheduling processes. Infor EAM will help the organization achieve top-line growth by more effectively managing medical equipment.
Infor EAM delivers innovative tools for tracking and managing mobile assets, assisting customers with complying with ever-changing regulatory standards, guarding against equipment failures and managing clinical equipment inventory. The Healthcare edition was developed specifically for the industry by a team of experienced hospital engineers and includes asset management, work management and project management tools to help healthcare organizations operate more efficiently and effectively.
"Infor's specialized healthcare applications allow us to leverage existing skillsets and hardware, and provides a clear integration path into third-party systems, which reduces implementation time," said Darrell Oller, System Director, Applications, Memorial Health System. "We know that Infor will support us as we grow and change in the years to come, and the company's experience with moving business operations to the cloud will be important for us in the future."
As a web-architected system, Infor EAM Healthcare Edition allows you to access the functions through a standard Internet browser, anywhere and anytime. In addition, Infor EAM Mobile extends the value of Infor EAM Healthcare Edition for field service workers as well as the managers, clerks and schedulers who are connected directly to the solution. It expedites service throughout a facility on mobile devices such as iPads and smartphones, to speed service. Personnel can move from room to room or site to site and still access and record maintenance information, conduct inspections and track inventory.
"After all of our evaluations, it was clear that Infor EAM was a robust system that could handle our business needs. The solution offered innovative, industry-specific capabilities, with the opportunity for custom configurations, and provided mobile capabilities not available to our organization before," said Dave King, director, Facilities Operations, Memorial Health System.
MHS also utilizes the Infor Cloverleaf Integration Suite, which provides secure integration messaging, monitoring, archiving, resiliency and cost-efficient interoperability via industry-standard protocol and web services. With Cloverleaf Integration Suite, healthcare organizations can aggregate disparate information systems and data regardless of the source system, message format or transmission protocol.
"Healthcare systems are constantly plagued with new challenges, from compliance to analytics. Infor EAM for Healthcare was specifically designed to provide healthcare organizations with the asset management functions they need to improve performance, increase savings, assist with complying with regulations and provide quality care," said Mike Poling, senior vice president, Healthcare, Infor. "By automating everyday functions, Infor EAM helps free up hospital staff to focus on more mission-critical tasks."
