In healthcare, bringing new and reliable products to market is essential for staying relevant and competitive. That's why when McKesson needed to transform its development environments, the nation's largest healtchcare IT solutions provider turned to HP CloudSystem Matrix. By moving from a traditional rack-mount server infrastructure to an HP CloudSystem Matrix integrated solution, McKesson saw an 84-fold increase in processing speeds on their development environments (down to 40 mins. from 7 days). They also enjoyed a 42% reduction in physical server count and a 67% decrease in management time. Read this case study to see how your own organization can use an HP CloudSystem Matrix solution to enhance productivity, reduce costs, and drive innovation.

While the price tag of higher education has escalated in the last 30 years, its impact on earnings has also gained significance. Furthermore, with tuition inflating even faster than healthcare costs, family incomes cannot keep up. Higher education therefore becomes unaffordable for many students.
Your employees are overusing ER and urgent care for basic needs because they can’t easily access their primary care doctor. We compare the virtual doctor, the on-site company doctor, and the neighborhood doctor to see how each stacks up. Read our report to learn how to improve your employees’ care experience. We’ll show you how to get them the care they need, when they need it, while lowering your overall health care costs.
Better health care at lower costs, for everyone – how do health care providers get there? Understanding the gaps in patient care, patient needs, and the geographic distribution of the patient population are important elements to consider when making decisions about improving the quality of care and reducing its costs.
To effectively analyze gaps in patient care, the data needs to be in a single place or system. However, in many organizations, data is spread across a myriad of spreadsheets and database systems. Data not organized for visual exploration and coherent analysis isn’t useful for decision making. Hence the need for visually appealing and scalable analytical tools to help organizations be more efficient, effective and economically successful.
As explored in this paper, the SAS Fraud Framework supports a complete, modular,
enterprise-level program integrity solution that helps payers prevent, detect and
manage fraud, waste and abuse across all silos and lines of business. Its fully integrated
components offer both top-down and bottom-up functionality for exposing hidden and
risky networks. This approach gives payers enhanced detection capabilities, greater
insight into case management and improved operational efficiency while decreasing
overall cost of ownership. The result is highly effective, early, and even preventative
detection of fraud, waste, abuse and corruption that improves operational efficiency
and reduces health care costs.
“Fixing health care” is an urgent and pervasive priority for governments, businesses and
citizens alike. Within many countries, costs are out of control, resulting in reduced
access to quality care for those who need it, higher taxes and/or insurance costs for
companies and citizens – and unfortunately, poorer health outcomes.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.

When it comes to engaging employees in workplace wellness programs today, the operative phrase is quickly becoming, “Let the games begin!”
After suffering decreasing engagement and fewer savings than they initially expected from their wellness programs, employers are boosting participation by incorporating gamification—the emerging field of applying game mechanics and strategies to various types of applications and programs.
The end game, you might say, is lower healthcare costs, along with happier, more productive and engaged employees.
Launching an employee wellness program and watching it take flight doesn't always mean you'll knock it out of the park. To have a measurable impact on health and well-being — and boost the bottom line — you need to sustain engagement for years. You also need to broaden your focus beyond just physical wellness.
