The Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems study annually identifies those health system leadership teams that have most effectively aligned outstanding performance across their organizations, and achieved more reliable outcomes in every member hospital. Truven Health Analytics measures U.S. health systems based on a balanced scorecard across a range of performance factors: care quality, patient safety, use of evidence-based medicine, operational efficiency, and customer perception of care.
Healthcare providers can deliver much more effective care if they have an understanding of the characteristics, attitudes, and self-reported health status of a patient’s age group. By communicating effectively and delivering care in a manner that resonates with that particular group of patients, healthcare providers can strive to achieve better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.
The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies U.S. hospitals that have achieved the best performance on a balanced scorecard of performance measures. Based on comparisons between study winners and a peer group of similar hospitals that were not winners, winners are achieving better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. If all cardiovascular providers performed at the same level of this year’s winners, almost 8,000 additional lives could be saved; nearly 3,500 heart patients could be complication free; and more than $1.3 billion could be saved.
The traditional payer business model is fast becoming obsolete. Blues organizations that cling to the status quo or business as usual risk jeopardizing their reputations and business, because people are more than patients.
Increasingly, employers are driving the growing demand for more solutions to engage customers. In response, healthcare incumbents and new entrants are building solutions to address rising costs and meet consumers’ demands for personalization, price transparency, access, and seamless, simple experiences.
Proactive engagement can help your members lead healthier lives while improving outcomes for payers and other players. With 5% of Americans consuming 50% of healthcare costs, identifying and engaging high-risk, high-cost customer segments is essential to sustainability.
Did you know that two-thirds of U.S. health care spend, or $1.8 trillion, goes purely to salaries and wages? Yet our patient outcomes are on par with countries such as Cuba and Slovenia. Health care reform is changing the way our health care system operates and will ultimately affect your bottom line.
Dr. Robert Kocher, M.D. has been a key influencer of health care reform efforts in the U.S. In this white paper, Dr. Kocher discusses:
•Three recent policy changes
•Four potential outcomes of health care reform
•The evolving roles within the health care system
The U.S. spends more on health care than any country in the world – to the tune of $7,290 per capita per year. Yet this massive spend does not equate to high quality care for Americans. As a result, $300 billion is wasted every year.
If you’re a self-insured employer focused on driving down health care costs and better meeting the health care needs of your employees, this paper provides valuable and actionable insights to help you achieve this goal.
This white paper reveals:
• How low-quality care affects both the cost of care as well as patient outcomes
• Five best practices in helping employees identify high-value providers
Video collaboration opens up opportunities for greater interaction and innovation, regardless of industry. Everyone benefits. For example, in healthcare, video is dramatically changing the way institutions interact with customers and professionals. In recent years, a number of hospitals across the United States have been subscribing to video and voice call centers that enable them to share language interpretation services, psychiatric care services and other developing capabilities. In the process, video collaboration is affecting business outcomes, changing business processes and helping healthcare facilities achieve scale, cost and efficiency not seen before.
Involved, informed patients are better able to manage their own care.

Marketers face a unique challenge to allocate resources across a variety of tactics to target key audiences that need their product or service – with limited information on what combination of products or services will have the optimum impact, which target audience members are ideal fits, and what allocations will provide the best return on investment to the organization. Healthcare has its own myriad of challenges, including many local, regional, and national options for consumers, service line variations, and disparate demographics. The good news is that there is an emerging understanding of digital and multichannel marketing, and ample opportunity to define best practices, systematically calculate marketing effectiveness and return on marketing investment (ROMI), and use technology and data to create great business outcomes.
It’s clear: the healthcare industry is in need of change. And today, the system is undergoing a critical transformation as it shifts from a volume-based to a value-based delivery model. Gone are the days of simply treating illness. Now, the focus is on managing the episode of care, containing the costs of delivery, optimizing services and improving patient outcomes.

Value-based care is the predominant model for enabling the healthcare industry to control costs and deliver better information to consumers. The basic idea is that reimbursements are based on the quality of the outcome of a procedure, episode of care, use of a device or therapy. Under this model, life sciences companies are rewarded for improving health outcomes and/or reducing the costs to achieve those outcomes. It requires life sciences companies to rethink many of their processes, from R&D through the commercial phase. Navigating those momentous shifts requires that life sciences companies embrace a range of digital technologies which will enable a holistic approach to value-based care. This white paper will examine the drive for value-based care, its impact on life sciences companies and how technology platforms can address the challenges the industry is facing.
The network has never been as critical to the healthcare sector as it is today. Electronic health records, Wi-Fi-connected medical devices, and clinician smart phones are among a plethora of healthcare technologies that depend on a stable network.
The consistent development of this infrastructure is key for the healthcare sector to continue its successes in creating new possibilities for management, patient and family experience, and patient outcomes.
Extreme Networks posed key questions to Nolan Greene, a senior research analyst with IDC’s Network Infrastructure group, who highlights the critical issues healthcare IT professionals must consider when building a network that maintains industry needs.
