Philadelphia — November 1, 2013 — Three Rivers Systems Inc. will demonstrate CAMS® Enterprise, the “disruptive” technology choice for academic management at the American Association of Medical Colleges annual meeting here this week. A disruptive technology is an innovation creating a new market that “disrupts” an existing one by displacing earlier technology.

With hundreds of sessions and more than 4,000 attendees, AAMC’s conference is the premier event for medical colleges, offering attendees the opportunity to take part in critical conversations about the changing landscape of medical education, research and patient care.

A not-for-profit group, AAMC represents some 128,000 faculty members, 75,000 medical students and 110,000 resident physicians.

With AAMC reporting applications and enrollments at record highs, medical and other health-sciences schools face some daunting challenges.

Among them, how to improve efficiency using fewer resources to educate the next generation of physicians and healthcare professionals while improving student success and, ultimately, patient outcomes. Not to mention keeping up with mounting healthcare-reform legislation, greater demand for health services from an aging population in a recovering economic environment.

All this calls for effective and proactive strategic planning and flawless execution. But tomorrow’s challenges can’t be met with yesterday’s academic management technology.

That’s why according to Three Rivers Systems, medical and other health-services institutions from coast-to-coast are switching to CAMS® Enterprise and saying good-bye to their outmoded higher-education management systems.

With CAMS Enterprise administrators can automate manual business processes and conduct instantaneous sophisticated business analysis. Increasing numbers of professional schools in the health sciences are turning to Three Rivers Systems Inc.’s disruptive academic enterprise resource planning system to meet today’s demanding higher-education environment.

“These schools also must keep up with mounting health-care reform legislation and greater demand for health services for an aging population, all in a recovering economic environment,” Three Rivers Systems Inc. VP of Global Sales & Marketing Jami Morshed said.

“At the same time, they face intense scrutiny from a wide array of accrediting bodies and certification boards demanding proof of quality educational practices and supporting data. All this requires effective and proactive strategic planning and flawless execution by higher-education institutions,” Morshed added.

Morshed said CAMS Enterprise Business Analytics, the academic ERP’s powerful business-intelligence feature, gives campus business leaders the on-demand data they need in attractive easy-to-use dashboards that simplify and enhance the strategic decision-making process so necessary in today’s unforgiving environment of cost-consciousness and accountability.

Top-rated Baylor College of Medicine selected CAMS Enterprise as an integrated solution to replace its outdated multiple standalone solutions. CAMS immediately eliminated data duplication and provided easy-to-use, real-time reporting and other essential business-analysis tools.
