Leading Medical Technology Company Manages Growth with UltiPro Workplace
August 25, 2009
WESTON, Fla.- Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading provider of end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions, today announced that eClinicalWorks, a market leader in ambulatory clinical systems, is taking advantage of UltiPro Workplace's employee self-service, recruiting, and human capital management (HCM) reporting capabilities to accommodate the medical software company's rapid expansion.
The federal government is investing $19 billion to help doctors, hospitals, and other medical agencies convert from paper to electronic medical records, which many believe will increase the adoption rate of this technology. As a result, the healthcare industry is increasingly turning to eClinicalWorks' solutions for a unified electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management system. eClinicalWorks, already growing at a fast rate, is preparing to expand at an even more accelerated pace during the next two years. To manage this increase, the company began searching for a new HR and payroll system last year.
"As we readied ourselves for growth, we were looking for a business relationship that would keep pace with our growing company," said Diane Burrows, HR manager for eClinicalWorks. "We selected UltiPro Workplace in October 2008, and we were up and running quickly-within seven weeks. Now we are enjoying a range of benefits through automated, online employee management processes. Plus, we can now expand our workforce without significantly increasing our expenses for human capital management."
With UltiPro's central Web portal, eClinicalWorks has given the company's associates online access to see their compensation history, benefits information, and other personal HR/payroll details. There are no telephone calls, emails, or visits to the human resources department-allowing the HR team to significantly improve its efficiency. For example, eClinicalWorks has a segment of its workforce comprised of IT professionals who have H-1B visas. These employees need their paystubs each time they leave the country. With UltiPro, personnel with work visas can get their historical paychecks in seconds.
"People really enjoy being able to get information on their own, and I like that we are providing a service to our employees while simultaneously freeing up our HR team to focus on more strategic projects," said Burrows. "After an announcement earlier this year about our plans for growth, we received 1,000 resumes in three weeks, so I definitely can use the time saved to focus on talent acquisition tasks."
To help manage its burgeoning labor force, eClinicalWorks also recently implemented UltiPro's recruitment feature. The company's HR team now can quickly review hundreds of applicants, evaluate each candidate's history, and electronically send relevant information to hiring managers without delays or concerns about confidentiality.
"UltiPro has streamlined communication with potential new employees by automatically informing applicants when a resume has been received, an interview is requested, or follow-up information is needed," said Burrows. "Built-in workflow accelerates the hiring process, and because UltiPro is a unified end-to-end solution, employees can be hired without duplicate data entry."
To help control costs, UltiPro enables HR staff to track the source of each resume to measure the success or failure rate of recruitment dollars. HR teams can also evaluate time to hire, cost per hire, job opening statistics, effectiveness rates from applicant sources, employee referrals, and productivity reports. UltiPro includes hundreds of configurable reports to help businesses evaluate trends, handle requirements for legislative compliance reporting, and rapidly respond to internal requests for information.
"With UltiPro Workplace, we immediately realized that we have so much more information at our fingertips than we ever had before," said Burrows. "I am so pleased to have real-time access to our employee information so that, as we grow, we now have a truly complete view of our workforce for forecasting, day-to-day reporting, and meeting regulatory compliance demands."
"By streamlining employee management as well as the talent acquisition process, UltiPro Workplace helps companies meet increasingly challenging HCM demands that many expanding organizations experience," said Chris Phenicie, vice president of UltiPro Workplace for Ultimate Software. "From recruitment through retirement, UltiPro transforms human capital management by centralizing information, making it all easily accessible, and freeing HR from tactical responsibilities so that HR leaders can focus on strategic planning and programs."
eClinicalWorks is a privately held leader in the ambulatory clinical systems market. The company's unified electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management (PM) solutions are proven for every market segment: large practice groups, including Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC), Electronic Health Records of Rhode Island (EHRRI), and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene as well as medium, small, and solo practices regardless of specialty. The company enjoys high profitability with a five-year compounded growth rate of more than 100% year-to-year. With an established customer base of more than 25,000 providers across all 50 states, eClinicalWorks has been awarded multiple top industry honors, including being named to the Inc. 500 in 2008 and 2007, and a top solution by TEPR for four consecutive years.
