MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the hospital operations management market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Infor with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership in IT for its best-in-class, tightly integrated solutions, utilized by 72 percent of US hospitals with more than 150 beds. Infor's Cloverleaf Integration and Information Exchange Suite has been a valuable tool for connecting financial, clinical and administrative functions to augment hospital efficiency and lower unnecessary expenditure.

The Infor Cloverleaf Integration and Information Exchange Suite can be implemented either on hospital premise or via the company's secure cloud platform, Infor CloudSuite™, to provide customers with consistent access to the most technologically advanced hospital information solutions. In addition, the Infor UpgradeX program provides organizations with a clear, simple path for upgrading or migrating an existing Infor solution.

"Infor's unique, full-suite solution integrates a variety of data and document types across hospital systems, boosting interoperability," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Nancy Fabozzi. "It promotes streamlined health information exchange and includes solutions for full cost financial management, unified human resources, analytics for patient turnover rates, supply chain management, capital asset lifecycle management, and next-generation performance management."

In addition to the core solutions, customers can opt to integrate Infor's Enterprise Master Person Index (EMPI) that allows for patient matching and reduces duplication of patient records. Customers can also choose Infor's Lawson Clinical Bridge that links data from clerical, financial, and operational systems, creating an additional level of hospital interoperability and efficiency.

Furthermore, in response to hospitals' increasing focus on patient management and engagement, Infor recently acquired SalesLogix, now Infor CRM, extending its platform with population health management and customer relationship management capabilities. Infor's CRM endows hospitals with access to numerous applications to aid patient relationship management and bolster patient engagement, treatment efficacy, and patient satisfaction.

"In the past year, Infor identified a drastic increase in the number of customers opting to utilize cloud-based solutions. With alacrity, Infor reacted to develop the Cloverleaf Cloud Health Information Exchange (HIE), offering hospitals the choice of implementing the original platform on premise or using an advanced version of Infor CloudSuite™," noted Fabozzi. "Additionally, Infor extended the core platform of the Infor Cloverleaf Integration and HIE Suite to integrate with its EMPI solution, in line with hospitals' changing needs."

Infor's Value Engineering team meets with the potential client to determine its specific needs and goals during the initial contact. After solution implementation, Infor assigns each project a Client Success Manager, who has in-depth knowledge of the specific solutions and systems of the account, and can ensure that the information is tailored to the systems' requirements.

Overall, for making the most of its market intelligence by delivering cutting-edge hospital operations management systems, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Infor with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership.
