This paper is the first in a four-part series examines the ways that wireless technology and mobile communications can enhance the efficiency and quality of institutional healthcare, improving the processes through which doctors, nurses, specialists and support staff members deliver medical treatment. Part One offers an overview of the current healthcare situation and suggests ways in which wireless technology solutions address healthcare challenges.
In their efforts to keep up with these varied needs, healthcare organizations are experiencing a proliferation of assets and asset types. But assets themselves are experiencing a convergence. Clinical devices for patient monitoring and care, building systems for cooling and lighting, and technology devices for communications and record keeping share a common foundation. An enterprise asset management system can be at the core of this transformation. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
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 the U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, among the law's many provisions was the establishment of formal regulations designed to protect the confidentiality and security of patient information. In addition to mandating new policies and procedures, the HIPAA security regulations require mechanisms for controlling access to patient data on healthcare providers' information technology (IT) systems.
This white paper communicates the value of software technologies that provide a single point of entry for prospects and health plan providers (including agents) to educate a new or renewing insured on the full value proposition of each plan offering.
Today, most healthcare professionals carry mobile phones. These phones are capable of sending and receiving text messages; immediately, non-intrusively and cost effectively. Text messaging has opened up a revolutionary way for healthcare organizations to interact with their health care staff. This document will help the reader to understand the costs associated with current staffing organizations' communications and identify a cost effective alternative.
The data security challenges in the healthcare industry have never been as challenging as they are today. Not only must healthcare providers comply with HIPAA regulations concerning patient privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against identity theft as well more complex scenarios of insurance data theft, medical identity theft and the adulteration of health records.
The healthcare industry is poised for a transformation in patient care. Learn how IBM helps leverage the full breadth of patient information, from across systems and providers , to create a complete picture of healthy information and more.

In this paper, you will learn the challenges facing organizations using yesterday’s Practice Management systems, and discover why capitalizing on the latest technology is easier—and much more rewarding—than you might think.
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. This whitepaper explores solutions for multi-layered neutrality, a standards-based framework for unifying medical images and clinical documents across the enterprise and community.
The healthcare payer ecosystem in the United States has changed dramatically over the last decade and is expected to evolve at an even faster pace over the next few years. Many world-class companies involved in healthcare payment processing are finding themselves constrained by their existing information technology infrastructure. The silos that they built around business-to-business (B2B) processing are constraining them, making it difficult to achieve governmental mandates and (more importantly) increase processing efficiency and competitive advantage. Gone are the days of a small set of data following static and simple standards traded between a limited set of organizations.
Gone are the days where the rules for when data is valid versus invalid can expressed in a paragraph or two. Gone are the days when information about a healthcare payment was almost entirely about the "who," "when," and "how much."
As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
