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.

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects:
• Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences
To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic
Find out how companies have deployed remote access SSL VPNs to increase remote user satisfaction, improve accessibility to corporate resources, support business continuity planning, and reduce overall implementation and ongoing management costs. The white paper also covers how cloud-based SSL VPN services address high availability requirements, support unforeseen spikes in activity and optimize network performance. Lastly, learn how a single SSL VPN platform can support all your mobile access, telecommuting and partner extranet requirements to improve your ROI.
Businesses expect IT management to demonstrate their contributions to end-user benefits and the bottom line while addressing immediate needs and long-term performance management goals. This white paper presents IT2020, a new performance management paradigm for meeting both of these expectations.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
For financial business leaders and other c-level executives, moving away from unclear or ambiguous “improvements” to quantifiable measurements is crucial to the overall organization. Hard, meaningful data substantiates the execution of strategic, long-term business decisions. As technology is rapidly changing, executives can be challenged to find the right systems that drive business performance, provide competitive advantages, and increase the bottom line.
Recognizing your people and rewarding them for their efforts and achievements is the easiest way to boost engagement in your business. And higher engagement = higher performance = higher profit, so it makes sense to say thanks now and then.

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
Culture has become one of the most important business topics of 2016. CEOs and HR leaders now recognize that culture drives people's behavior, innovation, and customer service: 82 percent of survey respondents believe that "culture is a potential competitive advantage." Knowing that leadership behavior and reward systems directly impact organizational performance, customer service, employee engagement, and retention, leading companies are using data and behavioral information to manage and influence their culture.
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
