Provider organizations can realize tremendous gains in financial performance by integrating electronic health record (EHR) and revenue cycle management (RCM) systems. Especially in the face of the transition to ICD-10, results include optimizing revenue streams directly at the point of care, maximizing and speeding reimbursement, minimizing denials and streamlining the collection process.
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.

The shift to value-based care creates a sharp increase in healthcare organizations and networks’ need for data collection, aggregation and analysis. This white paper outlines the challenges involved with performing population-level analyses, developing cost accounting and profitability analyses across care settings, evaluating care episodes and integrating quality data. It explores the limitations of targeted software solutions to provide cross-enterprise insights. Finally, it provides advice for healthcare executives regarding how to approach gathering quality and cost-related data and how to leverage technology and analytical expertise to drive risk-based contract success.
Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety
and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of
the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because
of sample identification errors.1 There is a strong and growing body of evidence within
medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient
bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s
National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) for 2010 advocate the use of two patient-specific
identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from
a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
Producing specimen labels at the patient bedside and encoding patient identification in
a barcode satisfies both The Joint Commission’s NPSG and Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. T

Wet scrubbers and dry media dust collectors are two very different technologies used to capture dusts generated during production processes. Both types have inherent advantages and disadvantages. Which is best for your application? The choice is not always clear-cut, but this white paper will help with the decision process by providing a comparison between wet and dry dust collectors. It will outline general parameters for equipment selection with respect to dust properties including combustibility, explosibility, particle size, moisture and adhesiveness.
It will also discuss how to apply NFPA 484: Standard for Combustible Metals, the standard that best addresses wet collection. Though NFPA 484 is specific to metals, some of its content can and should apply to nonmetal combustible dusts, as this paper will explain.

Stock photos get a bad rap sometimes. We’ve all seen images of women inexplicably smiling at their forkfuls of salad, or an unnaturally giddy customer service representative standing by. “Some stock photography just looks like stock photography,” says May Curry, a graphic design veteran with almost 20 years of experience.1
But stock photography has always been an essential part of the designer’s toolkit. When used right, it helps brands make just the right impact. Today, collections are evolving to keep pace with visual trends and create unique, attention-grabbing images-quickly and no budget.
Download this whitepaper to take a look at stock's rapid transformation and how it's helping designers do beautiful work, faster than ever.
Technology leaders need to rethink strategic
planning in the age of the customer. Technology
strategies are too often just collections of loosely
related project plans and too focused on tech
project delivery milestones. Strategies designed
“by IT, for IT” fail to engage business leaders and
executives because they don’t explain how tech
strategy leads to better customer experience and
outcomes. This report explains how technology
leaders can create a strategic tech plan that is
customer-led, insights-driven, fast, and connected.
How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.
As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.

Activating new platforms and features can take a lot of time; with the Juniper solution, turnaround time has been reduced to a few hours—sometimes less—which helps eBay Classifieds turn innovation into a real competitive advantage every single day.
The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.
The primary purpose of containerized applications is to improve the effectiveness of software teams, making it easier for people to work together while lowering the communications overhead. In large enterprises, applications such as ERP or CRM software suites often begin as simple projects, but as time passes, they quickly become clunky and inefficient, with a monolithic code base that slows progress for development teams.
