Published By: athenahealth     Published Date: Jun 08, 2015

Even if it’s already good it needs to be even better to weather inevitable industry changes. 2) Thinking outside the walls of the health system by optimizing the ecosystem of providers, the system of care, and physician loyalty. 3) Optimizing the patient experience: harness the health system to deliver what patients value most.

Core HR for the Mid-Market Professional

Published By: Workterra     Published Date: Nov 10, 2017
Mid-market HR today is being asked to be a business partner in areas that range from compliance to employee engagement. They need to be able to connect the dots among various sources of employee data to deliver better-informed business decisions to help achieve strategic goals. Connecting those dots and delivering those results demands more HR firepower and greater data visibility than the manual or homegrown processes and systems often used by mid-market organizations can deliver. On the other hand, most mid-market companies aren’t ready for the intricacies or expense of human capital management (HCM) systems designed for enterprise-level organizations. The answer for forward-thinking HR leaders who want to boost their team’s capabilities and play a greater role in their company’s future is having core HR functionality designed into an integrated benefits administration solution. Automated HR that delivers core HR features as part of its architecture — not as an afterthought or a separate, stand-alone module — gives HR leaders: • The tools they need to better handle their administrative work • The data and analytics necessary to better coordinate programs and more confidently make strategic decisions • A user experience that makes life easier for HR and employees
