Hospital Corporation of America Expands Relationship With Infor

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), one of the nation's first hospital companies, and the leading provider of healthcare services with facilities that include 165 hospitals and 115 surgery centers in 20 states, with more than 200,000 employees, has successfully gone live with Infor HR Service Delivery Onboarding in its pilot division in North Texas, with plans to roll out the software company-wide over the next 18 months. A longstanding Infor Lawson user, Infor Onboarding will assist HCA in orchestrating all of the steps in the employee new hire process, and ultimately foster reduced costs and help increase the quality of various HR activities throughout the organization.

Focused on developing a simplified method that would drive operational efficiencies for people, processes and technology, HCA selected Infor to deliver HR service to employees across multiple HCA entities that is designed to be consistent, automated and high quality. Specifically, Infor Onboarding, which organizes all steps in the employee new hire process, has significantly helped engage new employees at HCA with a more personalized experience -- showing only the content relevant to them and delivering access to onboarding information whenever it is needed. The system also tracks compliance, and notifies HCA HR managers when all the required steps have been completed for any given employee -- cutting back on administrative work and potential human error, and making for a more productive Day One.

"We've already received positive feedback on this new system for its ease of use, ability to transfer manual paper practices to more automated procedures, and the more efficient management of HR processes for our organization," said Kelly Furbee, vice president, HR Shared Services Operations, Hospital Corporation of America. "With nearly 60,000 new hires per year across the enterprise, the elimination of some data entry alone will equate to quite a bit of time savings for our HR teams once the system is completely rolled out." Infor Onboarding helps provide a confidential, secure environment for employees, managers and HR professionals to obtain information on sensitive personal and company information and policies. The system is designed to offer a true intuitive experience to present workflow in a way that resembles how people work, and eliminates bottlenecks to more efficiently manage processes.

"By automating certain tasks, organizations can reduce the annual cost of delivering HR services and free staff to provide more value at the business unit level," said Mike Poling, vice president, Healthcare, Infor. "Especially true to the healthcare industry, the ability to streamline processes and make day to day tasks more efficient will severely impact the bottom line and keep organizations in line with fluctuating budgets."
