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.

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.
Creating a state-of-the-art clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program isn’t just about boosting coding accuracy. It’s a key strategy in managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care, say healthcare leaders. That transition is a risky endeavor that is putting hospital and physician financial performance to the test. As hospitals participate in new care and business models aimed at improving value, leaders must ensure that their organizations are able to maintain reimbursement levels, effectively treat the chronically ill—especially in outpatient settings—and gather accurate data that will allow them to assess performance and segment their varying populations. While some organizations often believe they are leaving revenue on the table because of documentation and coding issues, CDI offers numerous opportunities for improving financial performance, finds a recent HealthLeaders Media survey of 149 healthcare executives at provider organizations.
Driving financial performance in the outpatient setting is a top-of-mind priority among senior health system leaders. But managing the differing clinical documentation methodologies and risk assessment strategies present the greatest challenges to optimizing this important source of revenue, according to a recent HealthLeaders Intelligence survey. Provider organizations are finding the ambulatory setting is still a ‘Wild, Wild West’ in terms of assessing risk, clinical documentation, coding billing and medical record keeping practices. Download this report to discover key targets to improve ambulatory revenue.

AI applications and especially deep learning systems are extremely demanding and require powerful parallel processing capabilities. IDC research shows that, in terms of core capacity, a large gap between actual and required CPU capability will develop in the next several years.
IDC is seeing the worldwide market for accelerated servers grow to $25.6 billion in 2022, with a 31.6% CAGR. Indeed, this market is growing so fast that IDC is forecasting that by 2021,12% of worldwide server value will be from accelerated compute.
Download this IDC report to find out why organizations like yours will need to make decisions about replacing existing general-purpose hardware or supplementing it with hardware dedicated to AI-specific processing tasks.
Platform businesses are reshaping our economy and disrupting entire markets by seamlessly connecting buyers and sellers. However, processing payments and the exchange of value on a platform or marketplace can be challenging.
Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the challenges that platforms and their sellers face, and the solutions they seek. Through a global online survey of 2,030 platform sellers and four in-depth interviews, Forrester found that platforms struggle to provide their sellers with much-needed payment capabilities, reporting, and customer support services with in-house resources alone. Meanwhile, sellers demand that platforms provide these services and will prefer platforms that are service-rich over platforms that are service-poor.
• The complexities of managing a platform force executives to divert resources, which stalls growth.
• Going global is easier said than done.
• Sellers will flock to platforms that simplify the process of sellin
Payments is an increasingly strategic area of focus for enterprises, impacting market expansion, customer experience, business model evolution and, ultimately, revenue growth. As the role of payments in business strategy continues to expand, enterprises need secure, reliable and scalable infrastructure to underpin their transaction acceptance and processing capabilities.
Stripe commissioned 451 Research to understand how large enterprise-scale merchants are thinking through their online payments infrastructure requirements. 451 Research surveyed 800 merchants across 8 countries, including a mix of business decision-makers from payments to finance to IT.
• 87% of mid- and large-sized businesses surveyed use the cloud as their dominant payments environment.
• Nearly two-thirds of respondents using the public cloud for payments have seen improvements in security, innovation and uptime, while nearly three in five cited improved scalability.
• Respondents using public-cloud-
Digital commerce is enabling businesses to rethink what they sell, how they sell, and where they sell. Fickle consumer and business buyers have come to expect an intuitive and instantaneous checkout process with multiple payment options. However, aging financial infrastructure and complex interdependencies between numerous parties make it difficult and expensive to accept payments online seamlessly and across markets and currencies.
Stripe meets these challenges with an API-based payments platform that abstracts away the complexities around payment gateways, acquiring banks, and credit card networks. To understand the impact of Stripe’s products on processing online payments, IDC interviewed Stripe customers and surveyed hundreds of organizations around the world about how they currently process and manage online payments.
• Many organizations are using Stripe as a foundational platform for their online businesses, with many of those also using Stripe Connect to run thei

Organisations have invested heavily in cybersecurity tools and yet more than five million data records are lost or stolen every day. The problem is not that today’s cybersecurity tools are badly
designed or missing features, the problem is that surging volumes of network traffic overwhelm security tools, causing administrators to use sampling or disable advanced features in order to preserve application performance. Also, security tools and IT staff don’t get all the data they need to detect and respond to outside attacks and insider incidents, because they are faced with “blind spots” in data collection.
