When it comes to making decisions that positively impact care delivery and business outcomes, great leaders will tell you it’s better to rely on data than on myth.

Using strong IT systems, accompanied by a cooperative and inquisitive organizational culture that brings together clinical and financial decision makers together to address pressing issues, put Regions on the path to create powerful healthcare analytics that fuel organizational change.

Registered nurses, with targeted training, are the secret weapon in the race for comprehensive care coordination.
Accountable care organizations. Patient-centered medical homes. Value-based reimbursements. Bundled payments. Healthcare is experiencing a revolution brought on by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that aims to put patients squarely in the middle of all their clinical and financial decisions. Payers, including government agencies and insurers, are tying the quality and safety of patient care to reimbursements, making patient-centered care a necessity in all settings.
For a non-profit enterprise seeking to design effective investment portfolios for its asset pools, understanding the role of each of those asset pools is a crucial first step.
The organization's goals and exposures can impact all parts of its portfolio construction process, from initial broad decisions on risk tolerance to more targeted decisions on asset-class exposures and investment vehicle preferences.
In the rough-and-tumble world of community and rural hospitals, the phrase “innovate or get left behind” is no longer a scary suggestion thrown out by expensive consultants, but a daily reality for CEOs. Rocked by reform and big changes in areas including financing, care models, and population trends, chief executives are getting used to making bold leadership decisions on a regular basis.
The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.

Benefits, especially insurance benefits, are extremely important to employees and one of the main things they take into consideration when they make employment decisions. Many employers that offer insurance generally offer a combination of health, dental, and vision insurance. Sometimes dental and vision insurance are offered separately from health insurance, or they may all be rolled into one plan.
As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
