Regardless of where you call home in the world, healthcare advancement and reform is top-of-mind. Media news and interviews, and even dinner conversations, put forth a variety of viewpoints on everything from quality of care models to patient information privacy.
Cloud technology is now recognized as the driving mechanism that enables community hospitals, integrated delivery networks, academic medical centers, children’s hospitals, long-term care facilities, sub-acute care, outpatient clinics, and payers to improve processes and thus advance healthcare quality and reform.
A significant driver in healthcare is to improve service with lower costs. Many healthcare providers view technology as a way to bridge the gap. At Infor, cloud customers see our ability to provide an enhanced cloud software and service option at a lower cost — and at the same time improve their security posture — as attractive motivators to join Infor’s cloud subscription offering.
Moving IT costs from CAPEX to OPEX (capital expenditures to operating expenditures) allows Infor cloud customers to switch from a one-time major expense for hardware and services to a predictable recurring expense with a cloud subscription model. Regular software upgrades become simpler, and require less direct IT involvement.
Security concerns have also guided many customers to the choice of a cloud secure deployment. Infor CloudSuite Healthcare, teamed with Amazon Services Security Controls, ensure world-class security processes with every release.
We believe the healthcare industry and our customers have chosen Infor cloud technology as their direction.
Numerous Infor customers echo these points. Steven P. Wightkin, CIO of Rush University Medical Center, talks about his reasons for choosing Infor CloudSuite Healthcare in this new customer case study video.
