WestMed is a multi-specialty physician practice operating in Westchester County, New York and Fairfield County, Connecticut. As part of a series sponsored by Workday, WestMed CFO Anthony Colletta joined Cloud Wars Live for a conversation about growing competition in the healthcare industry, the increasing importance of data to the CFO role, how Covid-19 impacted decision-making at WestMed, the unique benefits of partnering with Workday, and more.
The Big Themes:
- CFOs looking beyond financial data – interconnected parts of the business like HR are equally important to understanding performance
- Data access is a game-changer for quick decision-making – the disruptions caused by Covid-19 forced WestMed to make huge calls about the business without delay
- Taking your time when setting up cloud-based systems – Anthony explains why he was so hands-on and methodical when implementing Workday systems
The Big Quote: “Workday was really the first big investment into a cloud-based offering that we had. It was definitely new to us, there was a lot of things we needed to understand about it. But once you’re operating on it, you wonder why we hadn’t done this sooner.”
