Accenture hit the ground running, having already reviewed many of the medical center’s activities during the HCM, Payroll and Financials project, pivoting to a virtual operation during the pandemic. The teams designed a Workday Student solution to track student journeys at several different schools, with an initial focus on Workday academic foundation, admissions, and recruiting. The configuration was complex, given each school operated different grading and academic calendars.
Accenture and the medical center brought Workday Supply Chain to a hospital setting, developing urgent configurations during the pandemic such as additional accounting units to make Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) orders more efficient.
A valuable difference
Securing supplies in a crisis
Workday Student and Supply Chain were launched on schedule. With Workday Supply Chain, patient overpayments that were previously reviewed and paid back in several weeks, are now processed in 24 hours. During the pandemic, the system enabled urgent supplies such as PPE, ventilators, gowns, and gloves to be ordered automatically before stocks diminished.
When Workday Registration went live, it took the medical center just ten minutes to create a report on live registrations—something the team had never had oversight of before. Additionally, historical student records were loaded with 100% accuracy on the first try, due to Accenture’s proprietary data conversion tool.
The medical center has gained greater flexibility over daily operations and is now closer to a universal solution that befits the future of a world class medical institution.
