Founded in 1979, Pediatrix, is a national medical group that operates in 38 states and Puerto Rico. Physician-led, the company partners with hospitals and health systems to provide women's, babies and children's care across multiple specialty areas. Pediatrix offers their services through a network of more than 4,700 affiliated physicians and other clinicians.
With this distributed network of practices, the need to have consolidated enterprise-wide systems and consistent back-office processes that enable insightful data driven business decisions is critical. When the company sought to continue toward those strategic goals for their Finance function, they turned to a partner that had provided both corporate strategy and analytics support in the past: Accenture.
When tech meets human ingenuity
Transformation on the move
A hallmark of the project was flexible and creative program leadership that handled a turbulent start compounded by the disruption of the beginning of the pandemic. Despite these challenges, work ensued toward creating a modern Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solution leveraging a single accounting language.
By focusing on the operational needs, along with FAQs and recorded demos to assist in user readiness, a support network was created post go-live for procurement activities to cover a diverse and distributed workforce. During the program, the project team deployed core Finance, Procurement, and components of EPM to their full user group on Oracle Cloud.
A valuable difference
This program has helped Finance align on a single standardized accounting language, streamline many of their back-office processes, make reporting more readily available and open the door to future efficiencies through automation and mobility, all of which will yield improved outcomes for the team.
For IT, this is another step towards their optimized IT landscape for the enterprise as they look to become a more strategic partner to the business. In what will surely continue to be an industry of persistent change, the modern and scalable Finance applications will help Pediatrix establish a solid foundation for their future success.
