In Phase 1, Wheaton teamed up with CIBER to re-implement Lawson Financial Management and Human Capital Management suites to provide streamlined processes and reporting. Together, we also prepared for rollout of the Lawson solution to additional hospitals. For Phase 2, Wheaton and CIBER implemented the Lawson Financials and Human Capital Management with Wheaton hospitals in the Iowa and Illinois regions. Earlier this year the health system and CIBER began moving forward with Phase 3, implementing Lawson Business Intelligence, Process Flow and Self-Service modules for associations system wide.
“Because of this implementation, we are much more efficient. CIBER has been an exemplary partner, and they have really listened to us and responded to our organization’s needs,” said Jon Sohn, Chief Financial Officer for Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.
Beth Dvoracek, director of CIBER’s Lawson Practice said,“Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare’s previous system architecture required corporate staff to access multiple disparate systems to process, review and manage associate information. With these enhancements, Wheaton now has more standardized business processes and integrated business operations. We are pleased to see this great institution realizing the benefits of this project.”
