Computer Device Application Updates

Changes to Materials Management, Finance, Revenue Cycle Applications

Some of our important business processes and applications in Materials Management and Finance/Revenue Cycle are changing. These changes will primarily impact team members who: Order supplies within any department; use medical-surgical supplies in delivery of care; have responsibility for reviewing or approving departmental purchases, expenses and expenditures.

Many team members have participated in training and are familiar with the changes related to these application transitions, which will occur on August 1:

  • SMART Procurement, which is used to order all supplies and consumables, will replace Lawson Requisition Center (RQC) and the non-stock PO requisition process.
  • Lawson AP is an application that automates and expedites the flow of invoices from the vendor to the facility approvers who are authorizing payment. Individuals who have been identified as a Lawson AP user received an email notification about completing a module in HealthStream.
  • OptiFlex Supply Charging is a real-time, point-of-use system that collects and translates usage data for automatic replenishment of supplies. This ensures the highest availability of supplies and enables team members to issue supplies accurately and efficiently.

A Go Live Support Center will be open July 31-August 15 at 7:30 am-5 pm daily to assist team members through this transition. Call 213-2000 and choose option * for any issues you experience with logging in, application functionality or performance and user education.

For assistance after hours, contact the Service Desk at 828-213-2000.
