VHA & Sage Software to partner

Posted 25 January 2017

The Victorian Healthcare Association is set to partner with market leader in cloud-enabled business software Sage.

VHA CEO Tom Symondson announced today that Victoria’s peak body for public health services had formed an alliance with Sage to help its members embrace the changing technology landscape in hospitals, aged care facilities, community health services and primary care.

VHA CEO Tom Symondson said the partnership would deliver better options for members.

“We are delighted to welcome one of the world’s most innovative software companies to the VHA and are looking forward to them helping us navigate the shifting technology landscape. We encourage our members to look at Sage’s offerings for our sector and would be happy to facilitate introductions,” he said.  

Sage will provide thought leadership and education at VHA events and workshops and assist with member webinars. Relevant information will also be distributed to members via the VHA e-newsletters, website and other channels.

The VHA will support Sage’s broader activities in the healthcare sector nationally by facilitating meetings and helping it refine its healthcare strategies and solutions.

Both organisations intend to collaborate on initiatives such as significant research projects for the health sector.

Sage’s Director of Strategic Partnerships and Alliances Lukas Taylor said the alliance was a good fit.

 “Partnering with VHA was an easy decision for us. Sage as an organisation is passionate about healthcare and helping its members to be better informed, make smarter technology choices, and run their facilities more efficiently,” Mr Taylor said.

Sage is well known internationally for its market leading accounting, payroll and business management solutions for a range of industries.  For hospitals and healthcare, the company offers a portfolio of products including the MIMSYS Hospital Management System – a feature-rich, single vendor solution built on the award-winning Sage 300 architecture.

“We offer a range of payroll, Human Capital Management (HCM) and Business Management Solutions for healthcare providers of all types and sizes. For hospitals,  MIMSYS is an end-to-end hospital management system that can replace fragmented hospital systems. It improves patient access to care and facilitates the optimal delivery and use of healthcare services,” said Mr Taylor.
