Toronto, ON, December 17, 2008 – Axsium Group, North America’s premier Workforce Management consulting firm, today announced the successful deployment of Infor Workforce Management (formerly Workbrain) for Visiting Nurse Service of New York’s (VNSNY). With over 10,000 highly skilled providers, VNSNY is the largest not-for-profit home health care agency in the nation. Serving an average of 30,000 patients a day, VNSNY required a comprehensive WFM solution to effectively track and manage its workforce while improving the overall quality of care provided.

 

“Our patient base covers all five boroughs of New York City as well as Nassau County and Westchester County. With a large mobile workforce, accuracy and efficiency are critical to effectively process payroll and manage the cost of healthcare delivery,” said Tom Check, CIO, Visiting Nurse Service of New York. “We selected Axsium Group to lead the implementation based on their previous industry experience and ability to address our need to align labor, productivity and patient care. Their delivery methodology fit well with our organizational commitment to innovation.”

 

VNSNY selected Axsium Group to serve as the primary solution integrator for the Infor implementation and to work in conjunction with internal project, functional, and technical teams for complete knowledge transfer. Project objectives included standardizing and automating time and attendance, leave management and scheduling processes across the organization, consolidating real-time workforce reporting, and improving employee satisfaction with online self-service.

 

“From our previous experience with healthcare organizations, we know that superior operational efficiencies can be achieved by effectively managing the workforce,” said Tim Lett, Managing Partner, Axsium Group. “Visiting Nurse Service of New York has all of the traditional healthcare challenges coupled with the uniqueness of providing on site care to their patients. By leveraging a comprehensive WFM solution strategy, VNSNY can maintain an edge in a competitive industry.”
