Ciber Migrates Infor Lawson Enterprise Financial Management for La Porte Hospital

By Casey Houser

Market Watch noted that IT consulting firm Ciber recently successfully migrated the Infor Lawson Enterprise Financial Management software for Indiana University Health La Porte Hospital. After considering several other bids, LaPorte Hospital decided to contract Ciber to set up and provide support for the installation of the software, a suite that manages business finances and provides a central location for relevant activity management.

The medical center reportedly will experience cost savings and service-level improvements with the new software package. Market Watch quoted Earl Adams, CIO of La Porte Hospital, who spoke positively about the nature of the business deal and the effects it will have.

"We are always looking for ways to maintain or improve results while reducing expenses, both for our patients and our internal departments," Adams said.

“[Ciber's] long-term work with Infor,” he continued, “and the fact that they already have a successful engagement with our corporate offices at Indiana University Health, gave us confidence that the system migration and managed services support would complement our internal requirements.”

Ciber installed the software suite, provide quality assurance testing, and will continue to provide software maintenance and application management support, reports Market Watch. The Infor website lists its Enterprise Financial Management software as including applications that deal with accounts payable, budget and planning, cash and treasury management, financials, grant management, project accounting, student activity management, and travel expense management.

In addition, Infor discusses the fact that its software applications can work as independently or as co-dependently as clients prefer. The different applications can share common databases; so, when one application makes a change that another needs to access, each program doesn't have to save data to two different locations. This can help streamline La Porte Hospital's regulatory compliance initiatives by decreasing confusion about where necessary data is located.

Ciber Managed Services Vice President Don Stoner is noted as saying that such streamlining will also help the hospital manage its overall costs. Specifically, hospital officials will be better able to address patient concerns because they will spend less time dealing with software and data issues.
