SILICON SLOPES, UTAH — March 24, 2017Workfront, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced that RWJBarnabas Health has been awarded a Workfront Lion Award for optimization expertise.  RWJBarnabas Health is New Jersey’s largest integrated health care delivery system, providing treatment and services to more than three million patients each year. The company saw significant benefits from the Workfront implementation by focusing on optimization, reporting, and strategic alignment within the organization.

As a result of two large healthcare systems merging, RWJBarnabas Health became the largest healthcare system in NJ with over $5 billion in annual revenues. As part of the post-merger activities, the company created an Integration Management Office (IMO) charged with consolidating functions and achieving financial synergies across the organization.  The IMO expanded on the existing use of Workfront to provide enterprise level visibility of key projects helping to ensure integration targets were achieved. 

“Our main focus for optimization of advanced reporting and system usage has been within the IMO and the related integration activities,” said John Doll, chief financial officer, RWJBarnabas Health. “By far, the reporting tools and custom reporting has had the largest impact for advanced usage and optimization of Workfront inside our organization. It has been integral for tracking and reporting data, the status of critical initiatives, and helping to track the overall progress towards the integration goals of the system.”

RWJBarnabas Health needed a solution to track the intake, progress, and savings on 200+ initiatives in detail with the ability to roll up to management reports. Workfront offered a centralized system of engagement for the management of information technology projects, so expanding to integration activities was a logical next step. The solution’s relational database made it possible for them to build customized reports and dashboards. Stakeholders could also see the most crucial data points in one view. The implementation of the solution quickly spread across the organization and now each business unit is able to track project plans, milestones, savings, costs, issues, and risks within each project.

RWJBarnabas Health will officially be honored at the  Workfront Leap 2017 User Conference, being held from April 10 to 13, 2017 at The Grand America Hotel, Salt Lake City’s premier five-diamond hotel.
