In response to concerns raised by healthcare leaders that the absence of adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES) and race characteristics in patient populations impedes the fair comparison of hospitals on risk-standardized 30-day unplanned readmission rates, Truven Health AnalyticsTM evaluated the extent to which risk-adjusted readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and pneumonia are affected by adjustments for community-level SES factors through its Community Need Index (CNI) and patient race. The study shows there is, indeed, a statistically significant effect. For more, visit truvenhealth.com/wp/readmissionpenalties.

Some factors commonly used to explain poor operating performance do not prevent many hospitals from being highly profitable. For example, Truven Health AnalyticsTM has found that rates of uncompensated care, drug expense, and other factors do not seem to differ between unprofitable and very profitable hospitals. But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.

The tax on high-cost health plans, which are often referred to as Cadillac plans, is expected to impact a considerable share of the plans provided by healthcare organizations for their own employees, as much as 39% by 2020. The implications are significant because the excess-benefits tax requires the employer to pay 40% on the value of the portion of the plan that exceeds thresholds set by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Employers also need to consider that the tax is measured as a direct function of plan cost, and not actuarial plan value, and that a number of factors can drive excise-tax exposure.

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.

A recent HealthLeaders Media Intelligence survey asked respondents to rank their top challenges impacting financial performance and to identify specific areas of concern within each of those issues. Their top three issues were system implementation and interoperability, recruiting and retaining talent, and reengineering the revenue cycle. On the surface, it’s tempting to think these findings aren’t surprising. Yet emerging external factors, including the cumulative effects of the HITECH Act (meaningful use), the Affordable Care Act, and an aging U.S. population, are creating new frameworks in which to view and solve these traditional problems.

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.

Dataflow is increasing at a rate unseen in history. Network managers are tasked with enabling massive quantities of new data in a secure and highly available fashion, all while facilitating access to new types of form factors and data stores. This challenge is often met with layers of networking hardware and tools resulting in a complex mess, or even worse, a culture of network protectionism that inhibits business innovation.

Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP 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.

Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h

In this paper, we provide an overview of the Two Sigma Factor Lens, designed for analyzing multi-asset portfolios and derived from returns of broad, liquid asset class proxy indexes. This lens is intended to be: • Holistic, by capturing the large majority of cross-sectional and time-series risk for typical institutional portfolios; • Parsimonious, by using as few factors as possible; • Orthogonal, with each risk factor capturing a statistically uncorrelated risk across assets; • Actionable, such that desired changes to factor exposure can be readily translated into asset allocation changes. Finally, we discuss methods for constructing and assessing the Two Sigma Factor Lens that can be extended to produce additional risk factors for new sub-assetclasses or cross-sectional risks that may not currently be captured by the lens.1 This factor lens, and our ongoing work to expand it, form the foundations of the VennTM platform.

The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and industrial distribution industry is massive and continues to grow at a steady pace. Despite this positive outlook, individual MRO distributors aren’t short on their own challenges when it comes to retaining and growing their market share. There are several factors hindering MRO companies from retaining the share they have and claiming more. Namely: • Complexity: Their large customer counts and behemoth SKU counts render it impossible to give reps market-aligned pricing guidance and sales intelligence • Competition: MRO is ripe for poaching by Amazon, and as a result, traditional distributors continue to see market share slipping away to the online giant • Skills: A massive generational shift in the workforce is resulting in a skills gap that’s proving particularly problematic to fill In this playbook for MRO and industrial products distributors, we will discuss how growth is hindered in this dynamic industry and then provide reimagin

Leaders of European businesses take improvement of the employee experience very seriously. It is a matter of senior management discussion at the vast majority of organisations surveyed by The Economist Intelligence Unit, and many ascribe it strategic importance. The reason: a growing understanding that, more than individual factors, it is the totality of an employee’s experience with the organisation, from recruitment to departure and even beyond, that influences their contribution to its success.
