DETAILS: Health systems are spending millions – even billions – of dollars on routine and strategic capital projects, but they traditionally have limited visibility and control of why, where and when capital spending occurs. Boirie will identify the advantages of a strategic top-down capital planning methodology, as well as process challenges and areas of change required to more effectively allocate capital, define capital programs, manage capital projects and measure capital assets.
Sisters of Mercy Health System deployed the Web-based VFA.spendManager® capital spend management solution to gain control of capital spending by enabling all stakeholders to document, forecast and track activities related to capital expenditures. VFA.spendManager enables organizations to manage the entire capital spending process, streamlining capital budget creation, requisition processing, purchasing and reconciliation of expenditures. Sisters of Mercy Health System now benefits from a proactive and collaborative capital management process that provides enterprise visibility and control of all planned, budgeted and actual capital expenditures.
