Kaleida Health Selects OrgPlus Enterprise to Provide Workforce Insight and Decision Support

HumanConcepts, the leading provider of workforce decision support solutions, announced today that Kaleida Health, the largest healthcare provider in Western New York, is deploying OrgPlus Enterprise to gain accurate insight into its workforce and proactively manage change.

In response to the New York State Berger Commission’s recommendations, Kaleida Health is closing a hospital and opening a global health vascular institute. To reassign employees to optimal roles in the new organization, Kaleida Health needed rapid and complete access to HR information. The manually created org chart with over 10,000 employees fell short. OrgPlus Enterprise will enable Kaleida Health to visualize HR information from the organization’s Lawson S3 HRM system and easily produce current org charts containing all of the information needed for decision making. With OrgPlus Enterprise, HR and management can access workforce and budget information critical to scenario planning and see how proposed changes will effect each department. Additionally, the integration of OrgPlus Enterprise with Kaleida Health’s intranet and portal will provide a venue for employees to view the entire organization online in a secure, self-serve environment.

“We look forward to implementing OrgPlus Enterprise and automating the process to visualize our workforce information,” said Russ Reimondo, Director, Financial and Resource Management Systems, IS and Technology, Kaleida Health. “Linked directly to our HR data in Lawson, OrgPlus will provide us with critical workforce analytics that not only reflect real-time organizational changes, but will also enable us to better plan for future events.”

“With the aging population and the expected shortages of key medical professionals, it is critical for healthcare executives and HR to understand their workforce and respond quickly to changing conditions,” stated Hanif Ismail, Chief Strategy and Products Officer, HumanConcepts. “With OrgPlus Enterprise, Kaleida Health will gain greater insight into their workforce as it opens a new facility. They will have the ability to visualize HR data, communicate more accurate organizational information and better manage day to day workforce-related initiatives.”
