North Shore-LIJ Health System Selects Skire Unifier for Comprehensive Capital Project Management Solution

Integrated Solution Helps Top Health System Manage Capital Improvement Initiatives

MENLO PARK, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 21, 2010 — Skire, Inc. ( www.skire.com), the leading provider of capital program, facilities, real estate and project portfolio management software, today announced that the North Shore-LIJ Health System has selected Skire’s Unifier solution to help manage its five-year, $2 billion capital improvement program. Unifier will seamlessly work within all of North Shore-LIJ’s construction business processes, including controlling budget and cash flow, tracking contracts, and managing schedules while creating transparency into its project portfolio.

North Shore-LIJ is the second largest, non-profit, secular healthcare system in the nation. Serving over seven million people, North Shore-LIJ is the ninth-largest employer in New York City and the largest on Long Island, with a workforce of about 42,000.

Approximately 300 projects are underway at any particular time within North Shore-LIJ, which consists of hospitals, long-term care facilities, a research institute, trauma centers, home health agencies and outpatient centers. With such a large organization, it is imperative that a system is in place to deliver visibility and control over projects, ensuring all capital improvement initiatives are staying on schedule and within budget.

North Shore-LIJ was previously using a limited project management tool to track budgets, but realized it needed a more robust, multi-purpose solution that could control additional business processes. Through a meticulous selection process, North Shore-LIJ ultimately chose Skire’s Unifier because of the flexibility and sophisticated workflow it offered in addition to its established user-base within the healthcare industry. The solution will be delivered through a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.

“Unifier met all of the detailed requirements we were looking for in one coherent interface,” said Bernie Dubin, vice president of project management at North Shore-LIJ. “While other solutions we evaluated looked good initially, as we progressed through our detailed evaluation, it became clear that Skire could better meet our requirements. We’re confident that we made the right decision after evaluating the product in great depth and recognizing Skire’s established roster of customers, especially within the healthcare field in New York.”

“An organization such as North Shore-LIJ, that encompasses a wide network of facilities, requires a best-in-class project management solution to effectively control the entirety of its capital project portfolio,” said Trenton Brown, executive vice president for Skire. “We’re thrilled that Skire’s Unifier platform, in conjunction with our expertise in the healthcare industry, met the demands of North Shore-LIJ, and we look forward to partnering with such a technologically sophisticated organization.”

The selection of Unifier by North Shore-LIJ Health System further establishes Skire as a leading technology provider to the ever-growing healthcare industry. North Shore-LIJ, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital and many others rely on Skire’s Unifier to provide best-in-class project controls capabilities enabling them to improve the predictability of major projects across the paradigm of cost, scope and schedule.
