Most recently, CIBER has been instrumental in assisting the following clients:
Leading Healthcare Company, Minnesota– Serving more than 75 million people worldwide, this client is one of the leading healthcare firms in the US. CIBER leveraged its Global Solution Centers in the US to provide application development, testing and enterprise integration services. CIBER delivered 22% cost savings by developing a new core set of thought-leaders with specific business and technical intellectual property to architect "next generation" application designs.
Not-for-profit Insurance Company, North Carolina – This client is the largest health insurer in the state, with 4,600 employees serving more than 3.7 million customers. The client was experiencing high attrition rate of consultants and losing valuable knowledge base upon assignment expirations. The client wanted to migrate to a more diverse delivery model for project-based work and outsourcing as their needs evolved in this direction. CIBER put in place a Managed Services Engagement to address immediate staffing needs and to ensure continuity of knowledge capital among consultants. CIBER helped the client significantly streamline its sourcing, interviewing, screening, on-boarding process, freeing-up hiring managers to focus on key operations.
Large Healthcare Provider, Wisconsin – CIBER has enjoyed an eight-year relationship with one of the largest integrated regional health care delivery systems in Wisconsin. CIBER has assisted this client with various upgrades in the past and with their current reimplementation of Lawson Financials, Human Resources, and Payroll. This client partnered with CIBER to integrate business operations by creating an enterprise-wide common financial, human resources, and payroll system with Lawson software. The client will also realize enhanced administration and reporting capabilities and gain the efficiencies of a consolidated ERP system and database.
University Medical Center – The client wanted to replace its current applications with a fully integrated human resources application. The client was already running Lawson Financials and Procurement. CIBER was selected to provide project and implementation expertise needed to support the client's critical success factors which include streamlining processes, ease of use and most importantly, increasing employee satisfaction while lowering costs.
At HIMSS (Exhibit #1631) CIBER's healthcare experts will also be available to discuss CIBER's ICD-10 remediation solutions that include planning, assessment, remediation, conversion and integration services, as well as ERP and supply chain management solutions.
