Wellstar Health System, one of the largest and most integrated health systems in Georgia, has selected Workday as their technology partner for finance, human resources and supply chain. Workday’s online platform will expand Wellstar’s ability to efficiently engage team members through improving how they gather information, distribute information throughout the system and improve existing operations. Wellstar’s continued investment in advanced tools is a part of its broader enterprise strategy that will power our transformation to a more digitally empowered workforce.
“As we look toward our health system's future, how we invest in our people is going to become more important than ever. With the integration of Workday, we will enable our staff to work more efficiently so that they can focus on what matters most – their patients,” says David A. Jones, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at Wellstar. “Our people are at the center of everything we do. We must care for them so that the best people choose to work and stay here.”
Nationally recognized for quality care and as a top employer of choice, Wellstar is committed to continuing to improve patient outcomes and the caregiver experience led them to evaluate new solutions for core administrative functions. Wellstar strives to make the workplace better for everyone who serves, and in doing so they continue to build upon the momentum of their digital transformation, helping to secure recent recognitions such as being honored with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's (HIMSS) Stage 7 validation for its continuous efforts to improve patient outcomes through technological advancements. Stage 7 is the highest ranking an organization can receive, with less than 10% of hospitals nationwide recognized at this level. Wellstar is the only health system in Georgia to achieve this systemwide designation. This expanded capability will increase the communication and performance of team members as the organization continues its digital transformation across all facets of care. By designing the system with best practices and the caregiver in mind, Wellstar will continue to evolve to meet the changing needs of employees and patients.
“We are thrilled Wellstar has joined our growing Workday healthcare customer community. We look forward to helping Wellstar achieve their goals, learning from their extraordinary team and welcoming them into our customer forums as we partner together to help advance the future of healthcare," said Deana Kraft, Global Head, Healthcare at Workday.
With over 25,000 team members, 10 hospitals and more than 300 medical practice offices, Wellstar serves more than 1.7 million patients annually. Workday will provide Wellstar team members with an enhanced experience through greater accessibility and self-service capabilities ultimately reducing team member administration time so the team can focus on what matters – patient care.
