Novation Recognized By Computerworld As A 2013 Computerworld Honors Laureate





IRVING, Texas, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IDG's Computerworld Honors Program announces Novation as a 2013 Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.  Novation is the leading health care supply chain expertise and contracting company for the members of VHA Inc., UHC, Children's Hospital Association, and Provista LLC.

"Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions. For the past 25 years the Computerworld Honors Program has had the privilege of celebrating innovative IT achievements," said John Amato, vice president & publisher, Computerworld. "Computerworld is honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the 2013 class of Laureates and to share their work. These projects demonstrate how IT can advance organizations' ability to compete, innovate, communicate and prosper."

Novation's goal of helping hospitals drive down supply costs so they have more resources to dedicate to patient care is more important than ever.  Health care organizations are facing multiple challenges as they encounter new and updated regulations, the unknowns of health care reform, changing reimbursement policies and a down economy.

Novation, in conjunction with the VHA and UHC alliances, developed an entire suite of price-benchmarking and cost-management analytic applications in the medical, surgical and pharmaceutical areas.  These applications address a hospital's entire supply chain process from start to finish by supporting member hospitals' connectivity across their supply chain operations.  

The healthcare supply chain is evolving and hospitals are looking for innovative ways to streamline and squeeze out savings at every link in the chain.  Novation has seen clear and quantifiable benefits for a hospital supply chain organization in adopting mobile technology. From always-on access to the latest pricing and spending details, and workflow improvements to inventory cost reductions, healthcare organizations utilizing mobile solutions can achieve tangible and lucrative savings.
