Protecting PHI is not optional. Data security is so important in healthcare that fear of jeopardizing patient privacy and facing fines leads many providers to reject modern and more efficient cloud software. However, the facts tell a different story. Read this eye-opening e-book to get the facts on how the cloud can help your office provide better, more secure patient care:
How built-in data encryption keeps your PHI, DICOM studies safe
Why more security pros are concerned with user behavior than cloud tools
What your organization should know about the cloud and compliance
Patients come with lots of paperwork. The ability to securely access it on your smartphone or laptop could be a game-changer. But can your personal devices ever be secure enough to manage PHI? Surprisingly, this informative whitepaper shows that, with the right preparation, using your personal device can actually help you keep your organization more secure.

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patient’s healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And that’s how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology.
By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. It’s also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to “Improve the accuracy of patient identification,” which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.
Delivering the best possible care to every patient is a complex, interconnected process that involves every department in a healthcare facility. From the moment a patient enters a facility, a wide range of activities must be performed by many different employees from different functional areas — in a timely and efficient way—to ensure the best possible outcome, including performing tests, collecting specimens, administering medications and delivering treatments. Each one of these activities must be coordinated and documented as part of an overall care plan. But the first step is making sure clinicians are treating the right patient—in the right way—every time.
Zebra’s white paper explores the critical impact positive patient identification (PPID) has on patient safety throughout the administrative, diagnostic and treatment phases of a patient’s stay. The paper also explores how PPID can improve staff efficiency and help healthcare organizations meet the needs of changing patient dem
Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming. The convergence of exponential technologies, along with bold thinking and the willingness to take risks, is completely altering the business landscape. And that landscape is changing at an accelerating pace.
Disruption is occurring far more quickly than ever before. On average, an S&P 500 company is being replaced every 2 weeks, and over 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies on the S&P 500 will no longer exist within 10 years. The only options are to disrupt yourself or be disrupted by your competition. Which will you choose? If you choose the former, do you know how to proceed? This guide shares strategies you can employ today to start future-proofing your company.
With the proliferation of health and fitness data due to personal fitness trackers, medical devices and other sensors that collect real-time information, cognitive computing is becoming more and more important. Cognitive computing systems, with the ability to understand, reason and learn while interacting with human-generated data, enable providers to find meaningful patterns in vast seas of information. IBM Watson Health is leveraging the power of cognitive computing to help providers make data-driven decisions to improve and save lives worldwide, while controlling healthcare costs. Read our whitepaper and learn about the new era of cognitive computing and how it can improve health outcomes, optimize care and engage individuals in making healthy choices.
