Asheville, NC — November 1, 2010 The WNC Health Network WNCHN announced today that TEDS, Inc has been named to its list of preferred vendors. WNCHN is a collaboration of hospitals and other health care providers that support the delivery of cost-effective, quality health services in a four-state mid-Atlantic region. The network is comprised of more than 50 member organizations representing some 70 sites. Its combined affiliate contract volume is more than $1 billion.

WNCHN was formed in 1995 to explore, identify and implement cost-saving collaborative opportunities among the hospitals and health care systems serving western North Carolina. Its service area soon grew into the rest of North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and South Carolina.

TEDS is a software development and consulting company specializing in human capital development. The company’s primary product is an integrated Talent Management suite, based on the People Resource Planning (PRP)™ theory conceived and developed by TEDS founder, Joe Ellis. People Resource Planning streamlines and simplifies all aspects of staff acquisition, training, development and management for maximum productivity, compliance and cost savings. TEDS developed the first Learning Management System and the first integrated Talent Management System.

“We selected TEDS as a preferred vendor and as our only recommended Talent Management System for our health care partners,” said Tim Bugg, Vice President of Member Services for WNCHN. “TEDS is a visionary company with over two decades of experience in maximizing employee and organizational performance. Their ability to effectively implement health care Talent Management one solution at a time or all at once is a real advantage for hospitals and health care systems.”

The TEDS system manages workforce planning, recruiting and staffing, learning (training), performance, competencies, compliance, compensation, and succession from a single database. Customers may begin the process toward fully integrated Talent Management immediately with one or multiple capabilities needed to effectively and efficiently streamline people processes to achieve business results. Additional capabilities can then be easily implemented as business requirements dictate.

“The full power of our system lies in its integration,” said Joe Ellis, TEDS’ founder and CEO. “TEDS can replace many systems with one, resulting in significant efficiencies and dramatic cost savings. However, single solutions, such as competency management or performance management not only solve immediate problems; they lay a solid foundation for Talent Management. Additionally, many of our customers have told us that the greatly enhanced compliance capabilities that come with TEDS are worth the cost alone.”

“We are very pleased that the WNC Health Network has selected our company as a preferred vendor,” Mr. Ellis continued. “This organization has an enviable reputation in the health care industry for providing quality service and cost reductions for its partners. We’re proud to be a part of this distinguished team.”

TEDS’ Talent Management solutions for health care providers are immediately available through the WNC Health Network (WNCHN).
