Cancer Treatment Centers of America Goes Live with Enterprise Solutions

March 5, 2010

ST. PAUL, Minn., March 1, 2010 – Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) recently completed its implementation of multiple enterprise software suites from Lawson Software (Nasdaq: LWSN). The CTCA project involved implementation of Lawson Enterprise Financial Management and Supply Chain Management Suites as well as Lawson Business Intelligence. CTCA led the implementation, working closely with consultants from Lawson Professional Services.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America offers a fully integrated care model that combines the best traditional medical care to treat the cancer with scientifically supported complementary therapies to help manage side effects, strengthen the immune system, and improve each patient’s quality of life. CTCA serves patients and their families at hospitals in suburban Chicago, Philadelphia, Tulsa and suburban Phoenix.

Given the organization’s steady growth, CTCA sought a more unified enterprise software system that would help address core business processes, from financial management to procurement, while providing greater insight and visibility into key business data. CTCA implemented the Lawson system across its four hospitals and headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., and has experienced greater efficiencies through centralized procurement processes since implementation.

CTCA created individual teams focusing on accounts payable, materials management, reporting and finance across its facilities during the implementation to help promote training and user adoption of the Lawson system. CTCA is seeing ongoing improvements in efficiency as its staff continues to become more comfortable with the applications. 

“Having software systems that help us unify and simplify many complex business processes reduces administrative time, which ultimately helps us reduce costs,” said Chris Cashell, director of administrative applications for CTCA. “We partnered with Lawson to deliver a system that helps us improve efficiency of our business operations and allows us to continue our focus on delivering high-quality care for the patients we serve.”

“Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a leading provider in care – and hope – for so many patients combating a devastating disease,” said Jim Catalino, general manager for Lawson Healthcare. “Our applications are well-suited to help CTCA better meet its patient care and business objectives – while providing a unified business systems platform.”
