Torrance Memorial Selects Halogen Software to Improve Patient Outcomes by 
Supporting Employee Development 
Top California hospital looks to build strong performance and development 
foundation with Halogen's award winning suite for healthcare 
OTTAWA, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Torrance Memorial Medical Center has selected the 
Halogen Software (TSX: HGN) Talent Management Suite™ for Healthcare to 
support its focus on excellence in patient care, improve employee development 
and training, and drive higher performance. The hospital will leverage the 
Halogen suite to reinforce its commitment to creating a culture of quality, 
learning and advancement. 
According to the 2012 Healthcare Talent Management Survey(1) by Dr. Kevin 
Groves at Pepperdine University, when healthcare organizations implement a set 
of best practices, including having senior leadership make talent management a 
strategic priority, it increases employee productivity and patient 
satisfaction, and lowers nursing turnover. The Halogen suite will help 
Torrance Memorial directly connect learning and performance management to 
increase accountability, improve organizational alignment and support employee 
"Halogen's talent management solution was a natural fit for us. It will allow 
us to focus on our core business of providing industry-leading patient care by 
allowing managers to easily manage employee performance and development," says 
Dedra Ambriz, Director of Compensation and Benefits at Torrance Memorial. 
"Having a solution that's tailored to the healthcare industry and used by 
hundreds of other healthcare facilities also contributed to our decision to go 
with Halogen." 
The hospital plans to implement the Halogen eAppraisal™ Healthcare, Halogen 
Job Description Builder™ and Halogen eLearning Manager™ modules in a 
phased approach. 
Because these modules integrate fully and seamlessly, the hospital will be 
able to centralize employee performance data to make reporting for 
accreditation purposes easier. It will also make it possible to measure the 
results of its talent programs through quality measures, such as improved 
patient satisfaction. 
"With a diverse team of HR professionals as well as clinical and non-clinical 
managers, it was important to get a solution that worked for everyone. Our 
selection team agreed that the ease of use of Halogen's talent management 
solution made it the right choice for us," says Ambriz. "We've been impressed 
with the Halogen experience at every touch point."

to help healthcare facilities build high performing teams with the right 
skills, knowledge and competencies to deliver quality patient care. The 
Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare module is designed to meet the specific talent
