Speed time to value in deploying Workday with AccelerateHealth, Deloitte & Workday’s Healthcare Accelerator

The business of healthcare is in a constant state of flux. Several factors, such as new treatments, shifting regulations, higher patient expectations, mergers and acquisitions and intense competition for talent, are pressing healthcare organisations to modernise and adapt. Moving forward, many organisations will need to reduce costs, drive new levels of efficiency and re-think traditional service models. They’ll also need to streamline back-office functions and improve the employee experience— enabling doctors, nurses, clinicians and finance professionals to focus on what matters most: their patients. How can your organisation get where it needs to be? Better yet, how can it get there faster.
