Holland Hospital Live on Lawson Human Resource Management

Holland Hospital in Holland, Mich., recently completed an organization-wide deployment of Lawson Human Resource Management, a suite of applications that helps automate core human resources (HR) functions, including payroll, benefits administration and recruiting. The hospital is using the solution from Lawson Software (Nasdaq: LWSN) to replace several disparate HR applications with a central, consolidated system that will help it increase efficiency and focus more time on critical business initiatives.

Holland Hospital is a 205-bed private, non-profit hospital with 1,750 employees serving the west Michigan lakeshore area. It has served area residents for more than 90 years, and specializes in cardiology, obstetrics, orthopedic, cancer, home health and behavioral health services, among others. Holland Hospital previously implemented the Lawson S3 Financial Management and Supply Chain Management suites, as well as Lawson Business Intelligence. In 2009, the hospital approached Lawson to implement the Human Resource Management solution to help consolidate applications and achieve more robust reporting and employee self service capabilities.

"The overall healthcare industry view of Lawson is very strong and we were very pleased with our results using the Lawson finance and supply chain suites. Implementing the human resource management solution was a natural next step for us,” said Joe Van Belkum, information system project coordinator for Holland Hospital. "Lawson will help us expand the services and information we provide to our employees through self service and benefits open enrollment. And, it will help provide the flexibility we need to change with the times, especially in benefits and payroll as legislation and tax laws change.”

Lawson Human Resource Management helps HR departments contribute to organizational excellence with solutions that directly support business operations. Human resource management systems are the core transactional systems for administrative HR activities, including payroll, personnel management, benefits administration, position management and compliance. By helping to automate these business processes, Lawson helps improve efficiency so HR professionals can spend less time on administrative tasks and invest more time on strategic initiatives.

"Our old systems didn’t talk to each other, so the reporting and data integration was cumbersome,” said Linda Holtrop, director of human resources for Holland Hospital. "Lawson’s products have helped us reduce the amount of time it takes to enter data, run reports and create files for uploading to our vendors, thus improving our efficiency, accuracy and ability to provide data to our internal and external customers.”

"There’s immense pressure for healthcare HR professionals to become more strategic within their organizations by cutting expenditures and aligning with business operations. Yet, HR is burdened with many manual, paper-based tasks,” said Larry Dunivan, general manager for Lawson Strategic Human Capital Management. "Lawson Human Resource Management helps eliminate this layer and provide organizations with the information they need to help maximize workforce potential and make better decisions.”

Lawson Professional Services led the implementation. "Thanks to the knowledgeable and collaborative Lawson team, our HR solution was implemented on time and under budget, with no issues to report,” added Van Belkum.
