Dear Colleagues, 

Today UHN and Plexxus are launching SAP, an integrated suite of business applications which will help us manage our supply chain and finance functions. This is a major milestone of the Integrated Technology Solution (ITS) business transformation project and the result of years of collaborative work between Plexxus and 11 member hospitals. This new infrastructure supports internal and cross-hospital efficiencies and will give hospitals in the partnership economies of scale in financial management, procurement and logistics processes.

I am involved in this initiative as a member of the ITS project committee and the Plexxus board of directors and I ask you to join me in congratulating everyone at UHN and Plexxus on the launch. I'm also asking for your support and encouragement for the hundreds of UHN and Plexxus staff who will be learning a new software application and new ways of doing business. Change is never easy, but I am confident that once made, you'll wonder what took us so long to move to this new system.

As we build expertise and accumulate data, the value of SAP to our organization will grow exponentially. This is another leading practice which will transform health care for our patients and our community. Congratulations to everyone involved.

Bob Bell
