Our people are being well taken care of and they feel like we have their back. They feel like they have the support system they need in place to be able to be home and do their jobs and take care of our members.

IEHP’s Need for Innovation

  • Numerous manual processes and manual verifications
  • Paper time sheets
  • Lack of consistency
  • Recurring problems within current time and attendance solution
  • Issues with reporting

Finding the Right Tools for Change is Key. IEHP Needed:

  • A single view of all employees

  • Replacement of manual processes and systems
  • One login with end-to-end capability
  • Complex integration with current payroll system

“Our people are being well taken care of and they feel like we have their back. They feel like they have the support system they need in place to be able to be home and do their jobs and take care of our members.” —Michelle Gracey Application Services Manager

Healthcare Complexities facing HEIP:

  • Rules and complexities that extend past midnight
  • Multishift premiums, holiday pay, etc.
  • Constant communication with employees going on or returning from leave
  • Compliance with California state and federal guidelines

Planning for a Change

Taking the time to plan for change is key to success. To prepare for implementation, IEHP:

  • Took inventory and document business requirements
  • Hired a third-party consultant to help map and document current state processes
  • Collaborated on the desired future state
  • Met with each department head to ensure appropriate documentation
  • Aligned with organizational culture
  • Created process flows and diagrams

“We took the pandemic very seriously. We didn’t wait. As an organization, we got our people home very quickly—2,500 employees home in less than two weeks. That was a big feat by itself and thank goodness we had the system in place to support them once they were home.” —Michelle Gracey Application Services Manager

Responding to COVID-19

IEHP went live in December of 2019, which was perfect timing for when the pandemic hit. To ensure the safety of their employees, the organization:

  • Responded immediately
  • Successfully moved their workforce home
  • Ensured employees had the time and space to take care of themselves and their families
  • Put processes in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of their members
  • Involved legal teams to help translate and accommodate the new leaves available in California relating to COVID-19
