AmeriClerkships Medical Society Expedites Enrollment and Placement With Cloud-Based CRM Solutions From Enrollment Rx"Cloud Makeover" Shortens Residency Placement Process for Medical Graduates From Months to Days (November 10, 2011)
SCHILLER PARK, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/10/11 -- Enrollment Rx, an innovator of cloud-based Constituent Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for academic institutions, today announced that AmeriClerkships Medical Society (AMS) has deployed Enrollment Rx's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products to expedite enrollment and placement of both U.S. and international medical students and graduates in clinical and medical residency programs.
AMS recently committed to replacing its on-premise software with cloud solutions in order to improve staff productivity and resource utilization. Now using the Enrollment Management and Student Information System (SIS) products from Enrollment Rx, AMS is beginning to reap the benefits of this strategy. For the first time, AMS can offer same-day enrollment for its healthcare education and placement services, and has also shortened the process of matching clients to clinical sites from eight weeks to less than a week.
"Enrollment Rx has completely changed how we do business, streamlining our clinical look-up, reservation and placement process from weeks to days," said Dr. Pedram Mizani, chief executive officer, AmeriClerkships Medical Society. "The combination of Enrollment Rx's expertise plus the power of the Salesforce engine has brought us a level of efficiency that would not have been possible otherwise. And, we achieved this business value at hyper-speed: from the first call to our initial deployment we were up and running in about a week."
About the AMS Move to Cloud-Based Applications
The leading pre-residency acculturation and insured U.S. clinical experience placement agency for medical students and prospective physicians, AMS matches pre-qualified members with physicians, hospitals and residency programs. Previously, AMS used automated calling systems to contact thousands of students and hired three additional personnel to call the nearly 1,000 residency programs, a time-consuming process that was exacerbated by a lack of centralized data. AMS' previous solutions -- Microsoft Business Contact Manager, Microsoft Accounting and InfusionSoft -- did not scale and failed to accommodate existing files, such as PDFs and other client records.
As part of the "cloud makeover," AMS turned to Enrollment Rx for an all-in-one system including SIS, enrollment and clinical placement. Built on Force.com, the leading enterprise cloud computing platform, Enrollment Rx solutions can be deployed at half the cost of and five times faster than traditional on-premise software. By automating enrollment and placement, and transferring all client records to a cloud-based student information system, AMS can quickly match applicants with clinical residency programs. This creates a smoother, more efficient process for clients, better access to qualified candidates for clinical sites, as well as significant cost and time savings.
Enrollment Rx also streamlined data sharing between AMS and its two sister companies: Advanced Colleges of America, a California approved college with medical programs that are founded and supervised by physicians; and ClinicalExperience.com, which offers insured hands-on clinical experience to pre-health, medical students, medical assistants and medical residency candidates in order to improve their clinical skills and admission outlook. By standardizing on a cloud infrastructure, the three organizations can access and share relevant student information in order to better serve their clients' needs, all while retaining data confidentiality.
"Standardizing on a cloud platform is one of the smartest IT and business moves that higher education institutions can make today," said Lawrence Levy, president of Enrollment Rx. "AmeriClerkships Medical Society and its sister organizations set a great example of how cloud-based CRM solutions can simplify enrollment and placement, cut costs, and ultimately, create the technology foundation to increase revenues."
