ERP rollout aims to combine strategy and technology, while further enhancing the healthcare network’s operations
CHICAGO — Grant Thornton LLP, a leading professional-services firm, will deploy a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform for Novant Health, an integrated network of physician clinics, outpatient centers and hospitals with more than 35,000 team members in 800 locations.
Novant Health’s ERP implementation will be based on a cloud-technology platform from Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry. As part of this large-scale, multi-year rollout, Grant Thornton will work with Novant Health to implement Infor® Healthcare, a complete ERP software platform in the cloud designed for healthcare. Grant Thornton’s goal is to help Novant Health modernize its broad array of corporate functions, including finance, supply chain, human resources and other operational areas.
“Novant Health is renowned for its patient care spanning the Carolinas and Georgia — and enabling that care takes a vast network of business-oriented systems,” said David Tyler, the national industry leader for Healthcare at Grant Thornton. “In order for Novant Health to continue delivering great care while growing and expanding, it must bring disparate and complex systems seamlessly together. The key is to combine strategy and technology into a successful enterprise-application deployment.”
Grant Thornton’s approach is in keeping with Novant Health’s long-standing focus on leading-edge technology. In addition, Grant Thornton and Novant Health share similar people-first cultural values, which are critical to the success of an ambitious shared technology endeavor.
“We focus on innovation and cultural strength to drive results for our patients and our communities,” said Angela Yochem, EVP and chief transformation and digital officer, Novant Health, and chief operating officer, Novant Health Enterprises. “That’s why we’ve tapped Grant Thornton for this important project. The firm shares our beliefs — and it has the scope, scale and experience to deliver the results we need.”
Through its Advisory Services practice, Grant Thornton has conducted numerous technology implementations to help a range of healthcare organizations transform their business performance and operations. As a result, many organizations have seen enhanced revenue growth and, most importantly, improved patient outcomes.
Moreover, Grant Thornton possesses a strong history deploying cloud ERP technology and has received multiple awards and accolades for valued partnership and excellent client services from several leading ERP vendors.
Grant Thornton’s Tyler summed it up simply: “A successful transformation project combines the right people with the right technology — and that’s exactly what Novant Health and Grant Thornton are doing together.”
