Infor Supply Chain Execution for Healthcare Delivers Tools for Greater Control and Visibility

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 04, 2014) -  Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Providence Health & Services and Greenville Health System have chosen Infor Healthcare, helping these organizations to be visionary leaders in managing an end-to-end supply chain with Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management and Infor Supply Chain Execution (SCE) for Healthcare. Integrated with Infor Lawson Supply Chain Management, Infor SCE for Healthcare combines warehouse management, labor management and transportation management into a unified solution with a common user interface so organizations can unite the entire supply chain into a streamlined business process. It also consolidates services, increases visibility and provides tools for greater control of the supply chain at all points of care -- helping to increase efficiency and cost reductions through a more detailed tracking of inventory.

Providence Health & Services, the third largest not-for-profit health system in the United States., has moved forward with implementing Infor SCE for Healthcare. The solution allows users to view and operate an entire supply chain as a unified whole that encompasses participants inside and outside of the organization -- including an integrated delivery network, consolidated service center or a regional distribution center. Users can also extend the value of Infor SCE throughout the entire extended care network, with capabilities in the areas of collaboration, social business, mobility, and analytics.

Greenville Health System, a public not-for-profit academic healthcare delivery system committed to medical excellence through clinical care, education and research, is also implementing the solution. "Current industry conditions are driving modern healthcare systems to consider new distribution models in order to cut costs and improve control and visibility over their supply chain," said John Mateka, executive director supply chain and chief procurement official at Greenville Health System. "With Infor, our organization will be able to respond more quickly to changing needs and requirements."

Infor Supply Chain Execution gives users tools to work faster and smarter, with the potential to see enhanced results every day.

"The healthcare industry is consistently faced with navigating through changing regulatory requirements, posing challenges for healthcare organizations looking to come out ahead in light of increased cost control measures and lower reimbursement rates," said Barry P. Chaiken, M.D., chief medical information officer, Infor. "Infor SCE for Healthcare offers a solution to healthcare organizations to increase profitability by offering them a tool to view and operate the entire supply chain as a unified whole, enabling them to consolidate services and reduce operations and fulfillment costs."
