SHANGHAI--(Business Wire)--
Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has helped Shanghai East Hospital complete the
implementation of a Hospital Resource Planning (HRP) system designed to optimize
the hospital`s business processes and enhance its operating efficiency. 

Under the management consulting agreement, Accenture supported the introduction
of the system that covers a variety of business functions, including logistics
management, materials management, cost accounting and budget management. Among
the new capabilities, the system provides closed-loop materials management and
full-cost financial accounting, intended to help the hospital achieve greater
efficiency and lower costs. 

"We are very pleased to work with Accenture and are more than satisfied with the
outcome of our long-term cooperation," said Liu Zhongmin, director of Shanghai
East Hospital. "With nearly 40 years of global industry experience and best
practices, Accenture has played an important role in helping the hospital put
business innovation to its best use in order to improve service quality through
IT capacity building." 

Previously, Accenture helped the hospital design a roadmap for building its IT
infrastructure and introduced the hospital to the leading analysis and
assessment model established by the U.S. Healthcare Information and Management
Systems Society (HIMSS). 

"Shanghai East Hospital is a top general hospital in China and a driver of
innovation within the global healthcare sector," said Bo Wang, who leads
Accenture`s Health & Public Service business in Greater China. "We are honored
to be leveraging our deep industry knowledge and project management skills to
help Shanghai East Hospital achieve more efficient business operations as it
strives to build a leading, intelligent and digital hospital."
