Infor to Further Extend and Connect Its Business-Focused Software to the Caregiving Process
Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Intelligent InSites Inc. Headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota, Intelligent InSites is a leading provider of healthcare software and services leveraging location-based intelligence from real-time location systems (RTLS). Intelligent InSites has customers in the U.S. and Australia, including HCA, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Royal Adelaide Hospital. Intelligent InSites provides an enterprise scalable, dynamic, and intuitive location platform used to optimize clinical assets and supplies, streamline patient workflows, and ensure the safety of staff.
This acquisition enables Infor to offer an expanded suite of technology for healthcare organizations. The Intelligent InSites solution will complement the Infor CloudSuite Healthcare footprint, enabling support across the continuum of care including clinics, urgent care, emergency departments, inpatient care, procedural care, and behavioral health.
“This acquisition is a great fit for Infor given its focus on IoT and clinically-connected capabilities for healthcare without being tied to a specific RTLS hardware technology,” said Infor CEO Kevin Samuelson. “By pairing location services with our current healthcare offerings, we continue to respond to the industry’s call to connect traditionally business-focused software to the caregiving process. Intelligent InSites’ software allows us to provide our customers with a comprehensive, clinically-connected healthcare operations suite.”
Infor’s cloud-enabled healthcare solutions include industry-leading clinical interoperability, enterprise analytics, financial and supply management, human capital and workforce management, and asset management capabilities. Through this acquisition, Infor expects to help healthcare organizations reduce patient wait time, eliminate unnecessary equipment rentals, monitor key clinical environments, and ensure safety through staff backup.
Infor is one of the world’s largest providers of healthcare software. Its customers include 18 of the top 25 healthcare delivery networks, and its products are in use at nearly 3,000 healthcare locations worldwide. The acquisition of Intelligent InSites will add real-time location capabilities to Infor CloudSuite Healthcare that will increase the breadth and depth of the suite, and better position Infor to directly address the increasing need of healthcare organizations to reduce costs while maintaining quality and outcomes.
