In the post-ACA era, aligning physicians with organizational goals appears to be gaining traction in health systems and hospitals nationwide. Based on a February survey of the HealthLeaders Media Council, comprising executives from healthcare provider organizations across the country, physician alignment remains a complex challenge.
Even as value-based care continues to take effect, clinical integration or alignment is quickly emerging from a need to ensure quality, cut costs, and drive referrals across health systems and hospitals. Directly employing physicians has been one of the main strategies healthcare leaders are using to improve physician alignment with health systems.

The ripple effect of healthcare reform is beginning to impact care delivery strategies as care management now falls increasingly to providers.
According to a recent HealthLeaders Intelligence survey, hospital leaders are making progress with care management efforts, but more robust tools will be needed if hospitals want to scale up. The October 2014 survey polled 134 senior, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information leaders across the healthcare spectrum. The majority of respondents were from nonprofit organizations (63%), while the remainder (37%) came from for-profit settings.
Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.
The median fiscal and operational performance of U.S. hospitals over the past year remained relatively flat, despite expectations to the contrary. The data spans a four-year period from 2009Q4 to 2013Q4. Overall, hospitals saw flat or no growth in utilization, but major teaching hospitals saw steady utilization growth.
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.

Change is commonplace within the healthcare industry. Executives are faced with many of the traditional challenges of operating hospitals. Now emerging external factors like the HITECH Act (meaningful use), the Affordable Care Act and an aging U.S. population are pushing providers to change the frameworks in how they view and solve these traditional problems.
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. The best way to do that is to manage every aspect of their care. But the patients themselves will remain free to defect to another provider whenever they choose, either temporarily or permanently. Persuading them to centralize their care will rapidly become job 1. This report explores survey results about the primary forces enabling patient engagement and features a case study about the active care management program in development at Beaufort Memorial Hospital in South Carolina.

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.
Providers are increasingly making the leap and investing in their organizations in preparation for value-based care. However, while no one wants to be behind the competency curve when it arrives, it can be expensive to build competency for a new model before it is financially viable, causing providers to remain cautious.

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.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while.
As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you.
That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example.
These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future.
Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M

Le moulage à modèle perdu est une méthode de fabrication précise qui apporte de la valeur ajoutée dans tous les secteurs, des pièces mécaniques, automobiles et aérospatiales aux traitements dentaires, bijoux et sculptures complexes. Pendant des siècles, les pièces coulées lisses et précises ont été obtenues au prix de coûts élevés et de longs délais de modèles de moulage.
À présent, l'évolution des pièces s'accélère de manière spectaculaire dans de nombreux secteurs, ce qui se traduit par des cycles de vie des produits plus courts et des volumes de pièces moulées plus faibles entre les cycles. L'attente de l'outillage pour les pièces obsolètes destinées aux avions vieillissants entraîne également des retards dans leur réparation, ce qui coûte du temps et de l'argent. La demande d'une production en fonderie plus rapide augmente dans tous les secteurs et les fonderies doivent être prêtes à réagir.

Customer retention marketing aims to create engaged customers that return to a store or a website again and again. It’s a major shift in focus that recognizes the value of marketing to your existing customer base rather than constantly trying to grow it.
Retention and e-commerce marketing success go hand-in-hand; without a strategy to maintain lasting relationships with customers, brands risk losing valuable data, deals, and dollars.
