Some factors commonly used to explain poor operating performance do not prevent many hospitals from being highly profitable. For example, Truven Health AnalyticsTM has found that rates of uncompensated care, drug expense, and other factors do not seem to differ between unprofitable and very profitable hospitals. But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.

The changing healthcare environment has put pressure on healthcare organizations to deliver top-quality care while keeping costs under control. Superior operational and financial performance can be measured by high margins and low costs. But there are significant operational indicators that differ between high- and low-performing hospitals, depending on whether performance is defined by expense or by margin. Often, hospitals with the lowest costs are considered the most successful. But low-cost hospitals do not necessarily behave the same way as hospitals with healthy margins. Low-cost hospitals can include both efficient hospitals and hospitals that are in dire financial circumstances that have forced them to even eliminate expenses necessary for their long-term fiscal health.

In many aspects of healthcare, we see indications of change, with movement toward new payment models and investments in infrastructure to support the delivery of value-based care. Cost control remains a top financial lever, but the discipline is becoming more complex. From a brute-force perspective, controlling cost has a direct effect on operating margin, which provides the classic move of cost control through cost cutting. Now, though, organizations need new command over cost factors themselves.

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.

Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues. But that revenue was in danger. The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory. To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population. Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.

In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Occupational diseases and even death can be caused by air contaminants or oxygen deficiency in work areas. Employers must provide respirators and training to each employee who is or may be exposed to air contaminants or oxygen-deficient atmospheres when engineering and administrative controls cannot feasibly or effectively reduce exposures to safe levels. Workplaces with respirators must establish a written respiratory protection program that includes respirator selection criteria, employee training, medical evaluations, and fit-testing procedures.
