  • eTech Insight – Improving AI Success with Accelerators and Incubators
    The Problem: Identifying and Supporting AI Projects with High Potential Value: The healthcare industry has launched hundreds of AI solutions that will likely fail to achieve long-term viability and use. In many cases, the AI solutions are well intended but poorly designed to effectively resolve the operational issues that provider organizations will face or are currently facing. Poorly designed AI algorithms result in AI models that are not generating output that is believable or trusted by p...

  • How to Reap the Benefits of ERP Budgeting Exercises
    One of the most common questions we hear in the consulting world is, “I don't have the money in the budget right now for CloudSuite, is there anything I can be doing that's low cost to prepare?” Most folks do a lot of planning around the business case and get a variety of documents together to put forward to an approval body for funding in the upcoming year.

  • Converting Documents with IDM & IPA Flows
    Last week, we discussed the pros & cons of using Spreadsheet Designer Plus to convert historical documents for migration from a legacy on-premises system to a cloud-based environment. A second option for how to enrich data for this type of task is to use an IPA flow for data enrichment and mapping. Both of these methods will still use the Infor Document Manager Bulk Import Utility Tool post-data enrichment. For this method, first the data is uploaded to IDM and then it is important to update eac...

  • How Eliminating Customizations Benefits Vendors & Customers
    Last week, we discussed why the need for customizations is eliminated by a cloud-based system. Let’s dig into why it is beneficial to keep the version the same for all customers. There's a tremendous advantage to doing so, both for the vendors and customers. The one that you mentioned that is the most important is the vendor is the only one supporting the version of the software.

  • Identifying Errors During a Payroll Import
    It takes a while to evaluate all your data before spawning a couple of queues to process all that data. Keep in mind that if you are processing like 800,000 records, it will take several hours to process that data. That's why we recommend only bringing the first 10 or 20,000 records over at first. Then you can process that load as one file and make sure that they are within the payment master before bringing up your record types.

  • Pre-Planning: A Chance to Organizational Alignment
    Some people ask us, "If I do pre-planning, does that mean I don't have to do planning during a project?" I want to emphasize that is not the case at all – planning throughout the project is equally as important as pre-planning. This is true even during implementations where there will be a time for planning during each individual phase. You can’t prevent things from happening over the course of a project, but you can prepare for it by allotting space on your timeline from the beginning. We c...

  • Spreadsheet Designer Plus: A Manual Process
    When it comes to converting historical documents to IDM, the first option we’re going to recommend is Spreadsheet Designer Plus, a bulk import utility tool provided by Infor with CloudSuite. The process is a relatively manual one. First, we’re going to index data from our historical documents, and then we're going to query data from Infor FSM. We’ll manually pair that index data in Excel or an equivalent database before formatting it. Finally, we’ll export our documents out of Percep...

    The Problem: The Pandemic Highlighted the Limited Resource Issue for Providers The COVID-19 pandemic exposed the US healthcare system’s ability to meet patients' acute care demands with limited or full bed capacities at many provider facilities. Technologies such as telemedicine/telehealth and remote patient monitoring were quickly adopted to expand the ability of providers to safely deliver patient care in the home environment.
