CA Project & Portfolio Management has increased our efficiency and cost controls to the extent that we’ve expanded its use outside of IT. We’re bringing enterprise-wide projects into the system so that other organizational units can benefit. Angela Strous

CHI operates 87 hospitals, two community health organizations, two nursing colleges, home health agencies, and long-term care, assisted living and residential facilities in 17 states. In 2013, CHI provided nearly $762 million in charity care.
CHI needed to enhance project management and improve enterprise visibility. Because CHI project managers use Microsoft Project, that software had to be integrated with CA Project & Portfolio Management, which CHI already used for time tracking.
CA Services consulted with CHI to evaluate technical and adoption issues, make recommendations and identify best practices. The solution entailed a variety of custom training, including CA Productivity Accelerator.
In addition to time tracking, CHI now uses CA Project & Portfolio Management for resource management, portfolio management, cost tracking, and project and portfolio visibility, increasing efficiency and cost controls to the extent that CHI has expanded its use beyond IT.
