Healthcare organizations with strong bond ratings are regarded favorably from a financial perspective, of course. In addition, research by the Truven Health AnalyticsTM ActionOI® program shows that such organizations tend to excel in other categories, such as average length of stay and results of Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) are a set of metrics that provide information on the potential for inpatient hospital complications and adverse events following surgeries, procedures, and childbirth. PSIs can be used to help hospitals identify potential adverse events that might need further evaluation, provide the opportunity to assess the incidence of adverse events and complications, and understand patient safety events on a broader level.
As the healthcare industry shifts focus from volume to value, standardization is needed to accurately benchmark labor resource utilization. This is the premise of a survey conducted by HealthLeaders Media and sponsored by Kronos.
What constitutes direct patient care? Hands-on patient assessment, administering medications, and performing procedures clearly top the list. But can other activities be considered direct care too—even those not conducted in a patient’s presence?

Creating a state-of-the-art clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program isn’t just about boosting coding accuracy. It’s a key strategy in managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care, say healthcare leaders. That transition is a risky endeavor that is putting hospital and physician financial performance to the test. As hospitals participate in new care and business models aimed at improving value, leaders must ensure that their organizations are able to maintain reimbursement levels, effectively treat the chronically ill—especially in outpatient settings—and gather accurate data that will allow them to assess performance and segment their varying populations. While some organizations often believe they are leaving revenue on the table because of documentation and coding issues, CDI offers numerous opportunities for improving financial performance, finds a recent HealthLeaders Media survey of 149 healthcare executives at provider organizations.
Driving financial performance in the outpatient setting is a top-of-mind priority among senior health system leaders. But managing the differing clinical documentation methodologies and risk assessment strategies present the greatest challenges to optimizing this important source of revenue, according to a recent HealthLeaders Intelligence survey. Provider organizations are finding the ambulatory setting is still a ‘Wild, Wild West’ in terms of assessing risk, clinical documentation, coding billing and medical record keeping practices.

Do you know how attackers can move once they’re inside your network? The access footprint changes constantly as users log on and off, restart systems, change roles, and access resources. Until now, these conditions have only been visible when skilled analysts inspect individual systems. Attack Surface Manager reveals hidden credentials and paths to critical systems so you can continuously impede attacker movement—without impeding the business.
Enterprises increasingly operate in a digitally interconnected world where third parties like suppliers, customers, channel partners, and others are often directly connected to their internal IT systems, and where their underlying IT infrastructure may be owned and managed by an outside organization. These business relationships can knowingly or unknowingly introduce different types of risks that need to be identified and managed as if these third parties were part of the enterprise itself. Recorded Future's latest risk intelligence offering enables threat intelligence teams to better understand, monitor, and measure their real-time exposure to these third-party risks. Armed with this information, organizations can better assess and prioritize risk mitigation actions.

This assessment shows that enterprises adopt Red Hat Fuse because they believe in a community-based open source approach to integration for modernizing their integration infrastructure that delivers strong ROI. For these organizations, Fuse was part of a larger digital transformation initiative and was also used to modernize integration.
IDC interviewed organizations using Fuse to integrate important business applications across their heterogeneous IT environments. These Red Hat customers reported that Fuse has enabled them to complete substantially more integrations at a higher quality level, thereby supporting their efforts to deliver timely and functional applications and digital services. Efficiencies in application integration with Fuse have generated significant value for study participants, which IDC quantifies at an average value of $75,453 per application integrated per year ($985,600 per organization). They have attained this value by: » Enabling more efficient and effectiv
