The ripple effect of healthcare reform is beginning to impact care delivery strategies as care management now falls increasingly to providers.
According to a recent HealthLeaders Intelligence survey, hospital leaders are making progress with care management efforts, but more robust tools will be needed if hospitals want to scale up. The October 2014 survey polled 134 senior, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information leaders across the healthcare spectrum. The majority of respondents were from nonprofit organizations (63%), while the remainder (37%) came from for-profit settings.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

Join RelayHealth for a recorded Healthcare Finance News webinar, Accelerating Service-to-Payment Velocity. With all of the changes happening in healthcare today, some things do remain the same. Your two primary sources of cash are still patients and third-party payers. While patient financial responsibility is rapidly increasing, a large percentage of revenue still flows in via governmental payers and commercial health plans.
Part 2 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge."
In our last webinar, we discussed how trends & technologies like IoT and its many applications have helped drive an Always On, Always Connected mentality that has completely evolved customer experience standards. These demands are driving a need for resiliency in local edge environments, meaning compute & storage capacity is now coming back on premise for many applications – especially in industries like Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education.
In other words, this highly distributed access layer is now becoming a compute layer – one that is mission-critical to delivering a flawless (or at least acceptable) customer experience. These environments are often make-shift wiring closets (janitor’s closets, back rooms, etc.) with no dedicated IT staff per each location.
More than ever before, Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education customers are turning to solution providers to be that “dedicated IT staff” to find and fix problems before they start, so that the customer (or patient, or student) experience they’re working to provide remains a good one.

Hospitals and other healthcare organizations must contend with a daunting set of challenges when deploying mobile technology. That’s why it’s important to develop a carefully planned mobility strategy. To be successful, your strategy will need strong senior level leadership, commitment, funding and resources. An interdisciplinary team should be gathered— including nursing, physicians, pharmacy, IT, ancillary care, biomedical engineering and finance—to develop a vision for a common technology infrastructure that supports all staff across the organization. This white paper highlights a five-step roadmap for building an effective mobility strategy.
The changing healthcare environment means that both payers and providers must use all of their available data to ensure that employee productivity goals are met, members and patients receive high-quality service, and compliance is maintained. Unfortunately, many organizations face challenges with disparate systems providing inconsistent data. Find out how leading healthcare organizations are integrating HR and finance systems for one source of truth, and in turn enabling better decisions.
This paper outlines some of the important considerations for encrypting data on tape, and is intended to help IT administrators make the right decision for their environment and their company's data security needs.
This paper summarizes and evaluates the prevalence and efficacy of data center virtualization deployments, as well as the hardware that supports them. The conclusions drawn from this report are based on analysis of both quantitative market research and two qualitative interviews with a CIO and CTO in healthcare and finance, respectively. Each customer, referred to ESG by Hewlett-Packard (HP), had extensive experience deploying both server and desktop virtualization. The goal of the study was to determine the IT and business drivers to adoption of virtualization technologies, the expected and realized benefits, ensuing infrastructure decisions, future outlook of the data center, and best practices for deployment.
