Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.
With the inception of Value-Based Purchasing, the measurement of successful patient care delivery has been redefined. The move from fee-for-service to pay-for-performance means that reimbursements are tied to the quality of care that is delivered.
An innovative staff scheduling model is reinventing how hospitals leverage their employees for better outcomes; including staff satisfaction, labor costs, and improved quality of care.

Healthcare reform regulations, increasing costs, and more competition are driving employers and their health plans to focus more than ever on opportunities to reduce cost trends. For example, the country experienced a 3.0% growth in per capita gross (allowed) medical and pharmacy costs from 2012 to 2013. Truven Health Analytics anticipates those costs in 2014 and 2015 will increase by 4% to 5% or more. By taking a data-driven approach, payers can manage costs and, ultimately, make their benefit programs sustainable in the context of healthcare reform. They can also maximize opportunities to improve population health and productivity and optimize the delivery of care.
In the coming era of accountable care, providers will finally have something to gain by actively engaging patients in taking care of their health—and a lot to lose by not doing so. The best way to do that is to manage every aspect of their care. But the patients themselves will remain free to defect to another provider whenever they choose, either temporarily or permanently. Persuading them to centralize their care will rapidly become job 1. This report explores survey results about the primary forces enabling patient engagement and features a case study about the active care management program in development at Beaufort Memorial Hospital in South Carolina.
A recent Health Leaders survey sheds light on the top 5 workforce initiatives healthcare executives across the country are using for successful quality of care and labor cost improvements. Learn how these leading strategies can help your hospital.
The shift to healthcare’s value-based model is being accelerated by measurable goals and an aggressive timeline. With improved patient experience as the objective, addressing root causes that impact patient satisfaction scores is crucial to success.
Savvy healthcare organizations are embracing strategies to simultaneously improve the bottom line and care quality. Sometimes responsible for two separate aspects of the health system, now CFO and CNO collaboration is vital to a hospital’s success.
As chief transformation officer at MemorialCare Health System in Los Angeles and Orange counties, CA, it’s Helen Macfie’s job to rethink the future of healthcare delivery. Lately, she’s been thinking a lot about healthcare reform and care redesign as the six-hospital integrated delivery system, with more than 200 care sites, focuses on growth across the Southern California region.

Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202

Enterprises must continuously change to keep ahead of the competition, reduce silos, improve connectivity and respond rapidly to a changing world. Organisations also need to drive continuous innovation with technology that helps them adapt faster. So if you’re thinking of replacing your legacy ERP system, start by asking yourself these three essential questions:

In today’s rapidly changing economy, business leaders are
constantly thinking about how to attract, engage, manage,
develop and retain their talent. The brisk rate of technology
transformation, the increase in demand for unique skills and
the expansion of regulatory requirements all create challenges
as well as opportunities around attracting and developing a
diverse workforce. Quickly and effectively responding to the
business needs of your employees by optimizing processes
and technologies—while mitigating risk—enables you to drive
growth, productivity and profitability.
Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are the way software talks to other software—so
by definition, they’re a technology that connects systems. Many enterprise leaders think of them
primarily in these terms. For example, 57 percent of respondents to Google’s enterprise digital
maturity assessment tool, Apigee Compass, characterize APIs as systems integration technology.
Enterprises can extend their services with scale and speed that would have been unthinkable
just a few years ago. They can focus on their core strengths while leveraging resources from
other ecosystem participants, creating richer, more valuable digital experiences than most
companies have the resources to produce alone and spreading their businesses to new audiences
and markets. The speed of change and the range of opportunities are dizzying—which is why
it’s so easy for businesses to hit hurdles or chart the wrong course.

Nearly nine in 10 enterprises have adopted a multi-cloud strategy, according to the latest RightScale State of the Cloud Report, and these enterprises use eight different clouds, on average. Increasingly, their cloud of choice is a public cloud.
Every public cloud, however, is different. GCP is rapidly gaining users among companies of all sizes.
Today, GCP’s customers include large global brands like Disney, eBay, HSBC, The Home Depot, Schlumberger and Verizon, and smaller ones like gaming platform Smash.gg and the Rhode Island School of Design, one of the nation’s leading arts and design institutions.
Whether GCP is a good fit for your company depends on a multitude of factors. To find out what these are and how Rackspace can help your business, download this whitepaper today.

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure.
