  • Phoebe Putney Health System (Albany, Ga.)

“The current economic climate has prompted NorthShore University HealthSystem, like most healthcare organizations, to pay increased attention to productivity and expense control while also simplifying everyday processes,” says Sharon Seeder, director of information systems for NorthShore. “With our organization’s recent expansion through mergers, it has become even more imperative that we are able to effectively address these challenges. As we deploy the software provider’s human capital management solutions throughout our enterprise, we expect not only to realize tangible gains, like improved efficiency and reduced overtime, but to benefit from its healthcare-specific focus and commitment to providing solutions that address the most pressing industry challenges.”

With labor expenses comprising up to 60 percent of the typical hospital’s operating budget, healthcare executives are finding it increasingly important to be able to access a complete view of their workforce at any time throughout the pay period. API Healthcare’s integrated human capital management solutions employ data-driven methods that allow hospitals and health systems to access critical workforce information in real time and proactively respond to any issues—resulting in improved resource utilization, reduced operating costs, enhanced employee satisfaction and better patient outcomes.
