In response to concerns raised by healthcare leaders that the absence of adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES) and race characteristics in patient populations impedes the fair comparison of hospitals on risk-standardized 30-day unplanned readmission rates, Truven Health AnalyticsTM evaluated the extent to which risk-adjusted readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and pneumonia are affected by adjustments for community-level SES factors through its Community Need Index (CNI) and patient race. The study shows there is, indeed, a statistically significant effect. For more, visit truvenhealth.com/wp/readmissionpenalties.

Truven Health Analytics™ evaluated the extent to which community need— a measure of the underlying economic and social factors that affect the overall health of a community, including income, cultural/language barriers, education, insurance and housing—is associated with elevated rates of preventable hospitalizations or an increased risk of hospitalization believed to be preventable with quality ambulatory care. The results of this investigation reveal a modest but statistically significant association between community need and an increased risk of hospitalizations that are believed to be preventable with good-quality ambulatory care.

The long migration to electronic health records (EHRs) in the U.S. is set to speed up with the funding authorized by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009.  But what are the specific risks when clinicians can’t access electronic health records? How far-reaching are the consequences when EHR data is lost, or its integrity is compromised?  This paper looks at the mission-critical role of EHR systems, and introduces availability solutions that build in uptime protection to ensure the continuity of operation that both caregivers and patients can depend on.

One of the simplest, most effective ways to bring healthcare to the community level is through video collaboration. When video technology is enabled through a standards-based, scalable platform, community members can all join a multipoint video call to collaborate and work together with professionals and even with groups of similarly afflicted, empathetic peers to address health issues. Patients benefit from more regular evaluations and better access to specialty support. They participate in live or recorded education sessions—regardless of location or ability to travel. And with today’s move to ubiquitous video, you cannot only do one-to-one video sessions, but groups can meet over video to share ideas and best practices.

The corporate end-user community provides vital cogs in the wheel of a healthy organization. Users include the call centers, the retail assistants, the service desks, the sales offices and the people who deal with order processing. Yet many of these users are often faced with outdated user interfaces (UIs), and struggle to cope with the levels of efficiency and throughput needed. Worse still, these old systems typically only run on a connected terminal - or ‘green screen’ - but more and more these days, users need web and mobile access. Micro Focus Rumba+ dramatically improves business efficiency by providing a better user experience. It can also now be accessed from a variety of devices. Let’s take a look at five top reasons to move to Rumba+.
