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.
When it comes to effectively and efficiently protecting growing volumes of data, midsized organizations face unique
challenges. That is because they live in a world of constraints that are both operational and budgetary in nature. Cloud
disaster recovery offers new options for these organizations—they can optimize their data protection economics by
integrating on-premises protection solutions with cloud-based backup and recovery methods. Dell EMC’s cloud-ready
solutions, particularly its Integrated Data Protection Appliances with native cloud extension capabilities, along with its Data
Protection Software working in conjunction with its Data Domain backup storage appliances, provide cloud disaster
recovery with flexible features. These solutions enhance operational efficiency and provide midsized organizations with
clear economic and operational benefits.
To out-innovate and out-pace their competition, organizations must be on a consistent path to keep their infrastructure
modern. IT is under constant pressure to deliver optimized infrastructure for new business initiatives and supporting
applications all while trying to contain or even reduce costs. In fact, respondents to ESG’s ongoing research consistently
cite cost reduction as one of the top business drivers affecting their IT spending. When asked in a research survey how
their organizations intended to contain costs in 2017, 27% of respondents said that they would be purchasing new
technologies with better ROI.

Medicaid fraud is prevalent, costly and difficult to prevent. With a combination of more integrated data and advanced analytics, state agencies can turn the tables on fraudsters. They can accelerate the transition from detection to prevention, as new forms of fraud are recognized faster and fewer improper payments go out the door.
This IIA Discussion Summary explores the challenges and opportunities in preventing Medicaid fraud in an interview with SAS’ Ellen Joyner-Roberson, Principal Marketing Manager for Fraud and Security Intelligence, and Victor Sterling, Principal Solutions Architect.
The top data protection mandates from IT leaders are focused on improving the fundamental reliability and agility of the
solution(s) in use. The mandate that follows closely behind is cost reduction, which is also seen as a top priority among
data protection implementers. These challenges should not be seen as contradictory or mutually exclusive; in fact, they
can all be addressed by improved data protection solutions that are engineered as much for efficiency as they are for
reliability and capability.

Enterprises are leveraging advancements in what IDC calls “3rd Platform” technologies — cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social — to create new business opportunities and gain competitive advantage. These trends are putting more pressure on IT organizations to transform their datacenter operations to better support business initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing revenue, and strengthening customer relationships. This has driven increased demand for converged or integrated systems that provide the tools needed to reduce capital costs, improve operational efficiencies and, ultimately, increase agility within the datacenter.
The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP Company, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying StandOut. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of StandOut on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with experience using StandOut. StandOut is an integrated suite that pairs a technology platform with coaching to help organizations achieve their talent activation goals.
