Electronic health record (EHR) system implementation is one of the largest IT investments most healthcare systems have ever made but it’s success is largely dependent upon the data which feeds it. One the main data sources for the EHR is the item master, which drives not only supply chain processes but also a broad range of clinical and financial functions. Only with a clean, accurate and complete item master can a healthcare organization trust the outputs generated from its EHRs – from evaluating the clinical effectiveness of products to securing reimbursements. Learn how to execute a master data management strategy to derive the greatest value from your EHR investment.
In October 2013, S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI) launched the S&P Healthcare Claims Indices (the indices). This new index series is designed to provide an independent, timely measure of the changes in healthcare expenditures and utilization for individuals enrolled in commercial health insurance plans in the United States.
S&P DJI developed these new indices in conjunction with healthcare professionals at Health Index Advisors (HIA), a joint venture between the premier actuarial and consulting firms Aon Inc. and Milliman Inc. S&P DJI combined its knowledge and experience in developing leading indices with HIA’s experience in the healthcare market to develop the first index series of its kind, based on actual healthcare claims data. These indices seek to increase transparency in the healthcare market and enable the analysis and tracking of changes in healthcare expenditures.
With all the complexities of the U.S. health care system, people consuming health care services continue to find it challenging to navigate. That’s why, for the fifth year, Aon Hewitt is pleased to partner with the National Business Group on Health (The Business Group) and The Futures Company to conduct the Consumer Health Mindset Study. The study explores the health attitudes, motivators, and preferences of consumers across the U.S.— particularly employees and their dependents as they interact with their employer-sponsored health plans, wellness programs, and the broader health landscape.
Along with our findings about the consumer health mindset, we recommend practical actions you can take to meet consumers where they are and guide them in navigating health care more effectively.

Detecting and preventing errors that threaten patient safety is a closed-loop process that begins at the point of care, extends to independent laboratories, and then back to the caregiver. Sample identification and results reporting errors can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment with deadly consequences. A 2006 Wall Street Journal article reported that while malpractice claims for pathology errors are relatively low, they are the second most costly. In addition to creating a serious risk to patient safety, sample misidentification creates significant financial implications. Redraws, retesting and additional treatment that result from sample errors cost the healthcare industry an estimated
$200 million to $400 million per year.

Some customers are pushing independent software vendors to come out with their own appliances. Be careful what you ask for, because you may create something that you weren’t looking for. What happens if your favorite backup software product suddenly starts putting out its own appliance? At a minimum, other appliances from other vendors may cease to exist. Why should a big-box vendor partner with your backup software product only to compete with them? What happens when someone at the helm starts realizing that by creating a tighter integration between the software and the hardware, the company increases its bottom line enough to make that worthwhile? You may find yourself forced to buy a different hardware product than you want in order to keep the software that you like.
