ADP ®, a leading provider of human resource, payroll, and benefits administration services, today announced that the University of Miami Hospital, the flagship hospital of UHealth – University of Miami Health System, has selected an integrated, outsourced solution from ADP to more efficiently manage the majority of its critical human capital management needs. Located near the heart of downtown Miami on the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine campus, the hospital employs 1,700 people and is a nationally recognized leader in innovative healthcare.
The University of Miami Hospital’s selection of ADP represents another sign that ADP is fast becoming the leading provider of human capital management tools to organizations in the healthcare industry. Healthcare providers throughout the United States are electing to partner with ADP for its human resources, payroll and benefits administration expertise, as well as its deep industry knowledge in an era of new healthcare regulations and reform.
“ADP is a terrific partner and was the clear-cut choice to help my organization more effectively support the clinical efforts and operations of our hospital,” said Mark Ziemianski, director of strategic operations for the University of Miami Hospital. “Our mission has evolved into a critical one and ADP has helped us to become more flexible and efficient in delivering administrative operations support to our staff. The relationship has enabled the hospital to focus on its core competencies of delivering superior care to patients. ADP’s ability to serve us as a single-source provider makes it an ideal partner.”
The University of Miami Hospital worked closely with ADP to replace its HR and payroll systems with an integrated solution from the company. After successful parallel tests were performed, the new system went live in October 2010 and ADP now expertly and seamlessly handles many of the HR and payroll functions previously managed by University of Miami Hospital HR staff “The University of Miami Hospital, like any healthcare system, needs to remain focused on effectively executing human capital management modules smoothly and efficiently,” Ziemianski said. “Working with ADP has enabled us to free up resources on the clinical side of our operations, which is a win-win, since we are able to reduce administrative costs and contribute those savings toward enhancing our clinical operations.”
“We are delighted to partner with the University of Miami Hospital as they continue to deliver world class healthcare solutions,” said Carlos Rodriguez, president of ADP National Account Services and Employer Services International. “As healthcare providers confront the challenges of a new era, ADP is committed to delivering industry leading human capital management solutions specifically tailored to meet the needs of the healthcare industry. ADP technology, service and healthcare expertise enable innovative providers such as the University of Miami Hospital to focus ever more intently on delivering quality care for generations young and old.”
ADP helps healthcare organizations focus on operational efficiencies and process improvement, while also streamlining and containing costs. As healthcare organizations strive to do more with less, many are partnering with ADP to deliver the process improvements and operational efficiencies required to control costs and sustain patient services. Critical to this continuous improvement approach is ADP’s ability to deliver proven, integrated payroll/HR services that drive efficiencies into every employee, manager and administrator interaction. ADP’s payroll and HR solutions help healthcare organizations to:
• Automate, consolidate and streamline payroll, HR and benefit administration processes;
• Leverage manager and employee self service to improve service levels and reduce manual support needs;
• Manage shift labor and employee hours via automated tools that flow directly into the payroll system;
• Develop integrated, automated processes that improve management reporting;
• Modernize and manage systems without straining capital budgets or IT resources; and
• Keep pace with fast-changing healthcare, tax and labor regulations.
A recent ADP-sponsored research study by PwC found that outsourcing multiple HR functions to a single vendor can reduce an organization’s costs by 24 percent, on average. The study also revealed that outsourcing, and not simply moving to SaaS (Software as a Service) produces greater efficiencies and cost savings in the HR function.
