Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.

Healthcare reform regulations, increasing costs, and more competition are driving employers and their health plans to focus more than ever on opportunities to reduce cost trends. For example, the country experienced a 3.0% growth in per capita gross (allowed) medical and pharmacy costs from 2012 to 2013. Truven Health Analytics anticipates those costs in 2014 and 2015 will increase by 4% to 5% or more. By taking a data-driven approach, payers can manage costs and, ultimately, make their benefit programs sustainable in the context of healthcare reform. They can also maximize opportunities to improve population health and productivity and optimize the delivery of care.

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 shift from inpatient to outpatient care is increasing as hospitals transition from volume to value. A specific shift is seen in interventional cardiology treatment (cardiac catheterization, intracoronary stents, and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties [PTCA]), which is moving from an inpatient hospital to outpatient hospital setting. Preliminary data show that most interventional cardiology procedures will soon be performed in the hospital outpatient setting. It will be important for hospitals to consider future demand and volume for interventional cardiology services; capacity for an increase in hospital outpatient volume; and staffing and operational implications.

Download the free, on-demand version of this webcast that took place on December 8, 2015. Leaders from Beaufort Memorial Hospital and Influence Health discuss the challenges providers face and the skills they must acquire to increase patient engagement. In the coming era of accountable care, providers will finally have something to gain by actively engaging patients in taking care of their health—and a lot to lose by not doing so. Increasingly, providers will receive a fixed sum to care for each patient attributed to them by payers, and they will be able to make an overall profit only by keeping those patients as healthy as possible.

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.

A decade ago, hospital leaders viewed cost containment as a distant option to that of building topline revenue through increased volumes and rates. But with the road to profitability choked off by a recession, the ACA, and double-digit increases in healthcare inflation, most have been left pursuing a flurry of initiatives to cut operational costs and maintain positive margins.

Today’s CIOs no longer just oversee technology. They are now key strategists who guide their organizations and give them the tools they need to stay competitive. A study by Forbes Research stated that five years ago, a CIO’s most critical skill was deploying technology. Now, the #1 way that CIOs provide value is by contributing to the corporate strategy, so they can advance business objectives and drive revenue.1 In particular, CEOs rely on the CIO for guidance around digital transformation. Organizations must transform how they operate and take advantage of new technologies to better engage customers and employees. Digital transformation falls squarely on the shoulders of IT leaders. CIOs are under pressure to drive transformation – overcoming barriers such as cultures that are resistant to change, employees who want to upload files anywhere, and increased concerns about data security. CEOs also expect CIOs to achieve results now. The longer you wait, the more likely you will fall beh

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded. The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1, and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the potential to: • Improve productivity of internal applications • Increase revenue through enhanced customer interacton and improved customer acquisiiton • Reduce costs by optimizing operations • Enhance products and services with "smart" functionality such as vision and voice interaction and control This paper provided by Dell and Intel® gives executi
