Lawson Software has unveiled new data analytics software aimed at offering assistance to organisations in the healthcare industry.

The new software has been designed to allow healthcare companies to gain a stronger insight into the human resources, financial and operational aspects of their organisation.

The software, which will be available in May 2011, is already being used by the Catholic Health East healthcare system. According to the company, the software is designed to source information from across the organisation and present it in the right way, at the right time.

Jim Catalino, general manager for Lawson Healthcare, said in a statement, “Healthcare organisations need easy access to the most important business data to make better, faster decisions.”

“By creating Lawson Analytics for Healthcare, we can help simplify this highly complex task. Ultimately this helps our customers reduce costs, improve efficiency and enhance patient care,” he added.
