Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need. Gartner evaluated 12 vendors including Pegasystems against nine critical capabilities in four use cases.

Chilmark Research, a global research and advisory firm, recently released a report rating vendors and solutions in the healthcare analytics industry. IBM Watson Health, a leader in healthcare analytics, has put together this infographic comparing how its solutions stack up against some of the closest competitors in the industry in areas such as population discovery and definition, predictive analytics, cost and utilization, and claims data contribution.
This IDC white paper examines the drivers behind the adoption of IoT technologies by public services organizations and why the IoT is becoming a key investment priority. Public services are comprised of a diverse set of organizations, including federal, regional and local governments and healthcare and social services providers. These all have mandates to improve the safety, health and quality of life of their constituents across a broad range of programs. This paper also provides market insights and describes examples of IoT implementations that highlight the diversity of scenarios in the public service sector. These diverse scenarios illustrate the impact IoT solutions can have across many citizen-centric
Clinicians and staff want to perform better, produce more and enjoy higher levels of satisfaction. Close the gap between a user’s experiences with technology as a consumer and her experiences with technology at work to maximize the impact on your organization’s bottom line.
Within six months of implementing ECM in just one department, Sharp HealthCare experienced so many benefits, it wanted to expand the solution across its entire organization, integrating it with its EMR and other core applications.
Fueled by new technologies, expanding regulations and greater patient expectations, there’s a clinical content gold rush in the healthcare market. Sources and types of clinical content grow at an exponential rate and through increasingly refined input methods, including voice and improved OCR, clinicians capture more unstructured information about their patients than ever before. Making all clinically relevant content available together, in one place seems like a simple request. Must the response be so complex?
To support a more robust exchange of health information across multiple systems and care settings, HIT must embrace future-state technology: A single data management solution built on a single platform that stores all content in its native format in a single archive.
This paper, the second in a series addressing four key challenges of healthcare reform, focuses on actions you can take now to streamline core administrative processes to drive efficiency and reduce costs.
Given the wide range of technology options available, it's important for healthcare IT executives to pick the right image management technology and approach for a long-term sustainable solution delivering the desired performance and ROI.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
The right identity and access management solution can integrate with a healthcare provider’s EMR system to help keep sensitive medical data safe—and keep the organization compliant. It can provide valuable insights and visibility into accounts, access privileges and entitlements, across the wide range of users. By closing the gaps in identity protection, organizations can fight the threats of inadvertent misuse and intentional theft that may lead to security breaches.
George Curtis, CIO of URMC, was looking for a way to keep his team from needing to touch desktops every day. He was in search of solution that would simplify desktop management, and when he learned about RES Software, he was immediately hooked. After only a few months of beginning the implementation of RES, George and his team began seeing major benefits.
Waterbury Hospital implemented RES Workspace Manager to streamline workflow and improve overall clinician productivity. Working seamlessly with Citrix XenApp, RES Workspace Manager accelerated clinicians' access to their applications and eliminated old login scripts that caused significant delays for clinicians.
Healthcare systems are inherently distributed across large campus environments, making regular IT systems management complex and time consuming. The risks of irregular maintenance and non-compliance of IT and security policies are not only measured in dollars lost but in lives saved.
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
