The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
The Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems® in the United States outperform their peers by demonstrating balanced excellence—operating effectively across all functional areas of their organizations. Investigating the winner and nonwinner data from this study is a useful way to see how the nation’s health and the industry’s bottom lines could be improved. For apples-to-apples comparisons, the 15 Top Health Systems were placed into size categories by total operating expense: large (>$1.5 billion), medium ($750 million–$1.5 billion), and small (<$750 million).
The annual Truven Health AnalyticsTM 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. The study revealed that the nation’s best hospitals had a lower mortality index, considering patient severity; had fewer patient complications; followed accepted care protocols; had lower 30-day mortality and 30-day readmission rates; sent patients home sooner; provided more timely emergency care; kept expenses low, both in-hospital and through the aftercare process; and scored better on patient surveys of hospital experience

Many organizations joined the ACO program with the idea of using it as the first step in the transition to new reimbursement models. It’s a critical time for more ACOs to achieve the milestone of shared savings in order to demonstrate the ability to lower costs for an “at-risk” population. As best practices are emerging from early participants in the ACO program, ACOs have the opportunity to evolve their strategies in order to achieve more success.
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 the need to rework faulty products.
Watch this webinar to learn how TIBCO’s Smart Manufacturing solutions can help you overcome these challenges. You will also see a demonstration of TIBCO technology in action around improving yield and optimizing processes while also saving costs.
What You Will Learn:
Applying advanced analytics & machine learning / AI techniques to optimize complex manufacturing processes
How multi-variate statistical process control can help to detect deviations from a baseline
How to monitor in real time the OEE and produce a 360 view of your factory
The webinar also highlights customer case studies from our clients who have already successfully implemented process optimization models.
New market entrants are shifting the way the financial sector operates, new business models are changing customer expectations, and ever-changing client demographics are forcing businesses to adapt the way they work.

In today’s average large enterprise, more than 1,000 cloud applications may be in use—whether sanctioned or unsanctioned by IT. But traditional security technologies can’t adequately address the inevitable security and compliance challenges that follow.
The Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is an emerging security technology that specifically addresses the data protection challenges and other associated threats that come with the cloud.
Based on results from an in-depth survey of decisions makers and influencers with CASB deployment experience, this Osterman Research whitepaper:
Analyzes the core drivers behind CASB adoptions
Provides guidance in how to demonstrate need for CASB technology in a particular organization
Identifies features and functionality to consider when evaluating CASB solutions

Mobility is critical to government productivity, but mobile data and devices present attractive targets to cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities across
the spectrum. Federal agencies are no strangers to cybersecurity attacks, and several recent high-profile breaches involving mobile devices demonstrate ongoing vulnerabilities in government’s expanding network of endpoints. This issue brief describes what can be done to protect devices, data and networks, including multi-factor authentication to authorization controls and user education.
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.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance,
smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.
