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.
The changing healthcare environment has put pressure on healthcare organizations to deliver top-quality care while keeping costs under control. Superior operational and financial performance can be measured by high margins and low costs. But there are significant operational indicators that differ between high- and low-performing hospitals, depending on whether performance is defined by expense or by margin. Often, hospitals with the lowest costs are considered the most successful. But low-cost hospitals do not necessarily behave the same way as hospitals with healthy margins. Low-cost hospitals can include both efficient hospitals and hospitals that are in dire financial circumstances that have forced them to even eliminate expenses necessary for their long-term fiscal health.
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.
A decade ago, hospital leaders viewed cost containment as a distant option to that of building topline revenue through increased volumes and rates. But with the road to profitability choked off by a recession, the ACA, and double-digit increases in healthcare inflation, most have been left pursuing a flurry of initiatives to cut operational costs and maintain positive margins.
Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are using data to generate knowledge that helps them provide better patient care, enhances biopharma research and development, and streamlines operations across the product innovation and care delivery continuum. Next-Gen business intelligence (BI) solutions can help organizations reduce time-to-insight by aggregating and analyzing structured and unstructured data sets in real or near-real time.
AWS and AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners offer technology solutions to help you gain data-driven insights to improve care, fuel innovation, and enhance business performance.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from APN Partners Deloitte and hc1.com about their solutions, built on AWS, that enable Next-Gen BI in Healthcare and Life Sciences.

The terms disaster recovery and business continuity planning are often used interchangeably but, when you think about it, one is much preferable to the other. While disaster recovery makes clear that the organization will rise again, it does not let the world (and your patient population) know that the business of care will go on during the recovery process. In this important on-demand webinar, you’ll hear from one CIO who has given a lot of thought to keeping operations up and running no matter what gets thrown the organization’s way. With so many varieties of disaster lurking in wait, this is one webinar you can’t afford to miss.

Today’s healthcare landscape is characterized by unrelenting change and constantly increasing complexity. It can be said that the reforms of the Accountable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 exacerbate this situation while at the same time attempting to ameliorate problems over the long term. Whatever the case, healthcare providers have their work cut out for them – and no other part of the organization will play a more critical role than healthcare operations.

In this web seminar you'll learn how RES Software will help to find the perfect balance between your needs and those of your clinicians, administrators and regulators. Healthcare professionals will be able to access applications and data in any system, via multiple devices and from wherever they need: operations rooms, wards, clinics or even at home, without putting compliance requirements at risk.
Healthcare technologies have proven their worth for practitioners and facilities in increasing the quality of patient care while saving time and streamlining operations.
In some cases, however, the benefits of these technologies are outweighed by their impact on the network, slowing network performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.Software-defined networking can be the bridge to help healthcare providers update their networks and avoid disruption. SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.

Creating competitive advantage starts with a
sound digital strategy.
In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search
for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites
to steer their decisions about where to go for care.
What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making.
Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your
doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient
rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website.
Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to
generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,”
while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational
improvements and drive new patient appointments.
