PeaceHealth Simplifies Financial and Supply Operations with Lawson Software

Leading Pacific Northwest health system now using Lawson solutions to standardize business processes across regions to help improve productivity and cut costs
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN - News) today announced that PeaceHealth, based in Bellevue, Wash., recently completed its deployment of the Lawson S3 Enterprise Financial Management and Supply Chain Management suites. The solutions have helped the health system centralize core business functions, such as payroll, accounts payable and procurement to help it better track supplies and inventory, and reduce payment errors stemming from paper-based processes. Lawson Professional Services assisted with the deployment.

PeaceHealth is a not-for-profit health system with medical centers, critical access hospitals, medical group clinics and laboratories located in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. The health system has provided care for more than a century, and today, serves these communities through more than 53,000 inpatient admissions, 500,000 outpatient registrations and one million medical group encounters.

“To help focus resources on our mission values and vision, standardizing on a business application platform and consistent business processes across all regions was one of our key objectives,” said Stephen R. Omta, executive sponsor of cornerstone for PeaceHealth. “We chose Lawson as our technology partner because of its industry expertise and because its solutions offer the flexibility we needed to help us make this transformation successful. Internally, we referred to the Lawson implementation as the Cornerstone Project, because that’s exactly what it was – it helped us create a platform to support a series of system improvements that help us better serve our patients and communities.”

Lawson Financial Management and Supply Chain Management solutions have helped PeaceHealth automate several activities from purchase order generation to invoice payment, saving time and resources that the health system can use to focus on patient care. In addition, Lawson helped PeaceHealth improve visibility of information across departments, allowing executives to access accurate, timely information quickly to help them make faster, more informed business decisions.

“One of the biggest challenges healthcare organizations face today is the need to do more with their limited resources without making any compromises to patient care,” said Jim Catalino, general manager for Lawson Healthcare. “Lawson’s solutions are geared to address the complexities of the healthcare industry, and can help organizations simplify their operations and identify hidden costs weighing them down. This is critical to help establish a sustainable business environment and advance strategic clinical initiatives.”

Lawson Healthcare is the information technology partner that helps manage and connect the clinical, financial and operational information that allows providers to concentrate on their mission of delivering the best patient care possible. Lawson Healthcare has the combination of software, people and industry know-how to help improve the business of healthcare.
