The HealthLeaders Media Physician Alignment Survey confirms there is continued deep support for clinical integration across our industry. We see some clear trends in how hospitals and health systems use clinical integration and risk sharing to work toward physician alignment and better access.
This report outlines the top challenges providers are facing in the transition to value-based care. The results this year reinforce both the magnitude of the task and leaders’ reluctance to make a full commitment while details of emerging but still largely unknown payment models are unresolved.

Nearly six years after passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the healthcare industry is in the midst of a massive retooling that is dramatically altering the way we think about cost management, strategic partnerships, and customer service.
Fee-for-service reimbursement is giving way to new models of care delivery and payment to support a system based on pay-for-value. With financial risk or payments tied to value measures (such as patient satisfaction, clinical performance, and population health), compensation and reimbursement will increasingly be tied to value-based incentives.
The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
The Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems® in the United States outperform their peers by demonstrating balanced excellence—operating effectively across all functional areas of their organizations. Investigating the winner and nonwinner data from this study is a useful way to see how the nation’s health and the industry’s bottom lines could be improved. For apples-to-apples comparisons, the 15 Top Health Systems were placed into size categories by total operating expense: large (>$1.5 billion), medium ($750 million–$1.5 billion), and small (<$750 million).
The annual Truven Health AnalyticsTM 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. The study revealed that the nation’s best hospitals had a lower mortality index, considering patient severity; had fewer patient complications; followed accepted care protocols; had lower 30-day mortality and 30-day readmission rates; sent patients home sooner; provided more timely emergency care; kept expenses low, both in-hospital and through the aftercare process; and scored better on patient surveys of hospital experience
As the healthcare industry shifts focus from volume to value, standardization is needed to accurately benchmark labor resource utilization. This is the premise of a survey conducted by HealthLeaders Media and sponsored by Kronos.
What constitutes direct patient care? Hands-on patient assessment, administering medications, and performing procedures clearly top the list. But can other activities be considered direct care too—even those not conducted in a patient’s presence?

ICD-10 has presented monumental preparation challenges to U.S. healthcare providers, who have had to overhaul their billing departments and systems and retrain their staffs. And many may now think the heavy lifting is done, according to a recent survey of industry executives conducted by HealthLeaders Media and The SSI Group, Inc. But while providers may successfully get a bill out the door with a valid ICD-10 code, they may not be prepared for a payment delay or an actual drop in revenue when the payer sends it back for more details.
U.S. healthcare providers are venturing into the treacherous waters of value-based care, and many are starting their voyages in leaky boats, according to a recent survey of industry executives conducted by HealthLeaders Media and sponsored by RelayHealth.

Change is commonplace within the healthcare industry. Executives are faced with many of the traditional challenges of operating hospitals. Now emerging external factors like the HITECH Act (meaningful use), the Affordable Care Act and an aging U.S. population are pushing providers to change the frameworks in how they view and solve these traditional problems.
Industry leaders are striving to create a culture of safety within their organizations that extends to all employees, according to an Intelligence Buzz Survey conducted recently by HealthLeaders Media.
The healthcare industry continues to debate the definition of population health, but for San Diego–based Scripps Health, it’s pretty simple: Population health is the future of healthcare.

Building a data-driven organization takes more than technology. And, healthcare leaders can all agree that issues facing today’s industry are daunting; determining how to react in a way that matches your organization’s strengths and vulnerabilities may be even more challenging. With the right resources in place, you can take pragmatic steps to reduce data silos and deliver efficient, coordinated care across all your settings.
Can hospital staff use personal devices for work-related communications? Spok surveyed 450+ healthcare organizations to assess the current landscape. Results show a lot of variation and may surprise you.
HERE was named the world’s leading location platform in 2018 (Source: Ovum), overtaking Google for the first time.
Ovum’s Index assesses and ranks the major vendors in the location platform market.
According to Ovum: ‘HERE has always scored well on the completeness of its offering, leading on this front for some time. Where it traditionally lagged Google was on the reach of its platform, but this has been steadily improving thanks to the wide range of verticals its platform addresses. An important factor in HERE topping the leader board has been its strong focus on the developer community.’
We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years.
This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity.
There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive.
Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo

If you’re dealing with the high cost and complexities of
delivering reliable wide area connectivity over traditional
carrier-based networks, you’re probably considering
some form of software-defined wide area networking
(SD-WAN). With the variety of constraints that you face,
selecting the right SD-WAN solution for your enterprise
may require a few compromises. Security, however,
should not be one of them.
There are various models for combining SD-WAN and
network security, but only one that can truly be called
“secure SD-WAN.” Fortinet, the most trusted name
in network security, has leveraged its industry-leading

Advanced image analysis and computer vision are key components of today’s AI revolution and is becoming critical for a wide range of industry applications, including healthcare, where this technology is being used to detect anomalies and improve patient care. Due to a lack of integrated tools and experience with these cutting-edge technologies, however, deploying complete systems is difficult.
Applications that utilize deep learning approaches often require large amounts of highly parallel compute power, storage, and networking capabilities, along with performance optimizations for faster data analysis. The Intel and QNAP/IEI solution combines all these elements in one complete system for scalable data management for hospitals and clinics of all sizes.
