In late August 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced plans to reinstate the Recovery Audit program on a limited basis. CMS reports the delay in restarting the Recovery Audit program was to enable the various RAC regions to restructure, allowing time for the appeals to catch up. Soon, however, the hiatus will end and RACs in all regions will resume automated reviews; these will be in addition to select complex reviews based on topics chosen by CMS.
Healthcare organizations are facing uncertain times, which is putting strains on their revenue cycle management. Automation can help lower staff costs, enhance clean claims rates, cut denial rates, improve patient collections and reduce bad debt.
Healthcare organizations are facing uncertain times, which is putting enormous strains on their RCM. This white paper will show how you can lower your staff costs, enhance clean claims rates, cut denial rates, improve patient collections and reduce bad debt.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.
Much has been written about the impact of technology on insurance, this most traditional of industries. Artificial intelligence (AI), connected cars, drones and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all becoming integral to the insurance and automotive industries. This becomes obvious when using your car’s navigation system – an everyday action that might well lead to a chain of events few would even think of today.

Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
US based automobile had multiple ServiceNow instances across multiple companies along with non-standardization of tools and processes. LTI helped in implementing end to end ServiceNow modules including ITSM, ITOM: Orchestration + Event Management thereby achieving high scalability in integrated processes across globe.
i. Brief – US based automobile had no asset management and CMDB discovery which lead to longer procurement lifecycles. LTI implemented end to end ServiceNow and operational support using global delivery model. Also helped in optimising integrations after reviewing license consumptions which then helped in reducing the process implementation to mere 2.5 months

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?

Fraud is one of the biggest overheads for most financial firms. Detecting crime is hard as fraud constantly evolves and the tools have to be able to evolve with it. Also one of the key areas of focus for most firms is to address the cost of handling the false positives that all automated systems generate.
