Creating a successful patient experience strategy is a long-term investment in planning, surveying, training, and technology. Healthcare organizations hope these efforts will pay off at the very least with a growing base of loyal patients, better care quality, and stable reimbursement. And then there are those organizations that are turning patient experience into a movement. What’s their endgame? They intend to build state-of-the-art service-oriented cultures that rival other industries, and they are doing it through data analytics, unique communication programs, radical cultural shifts, and consumer-centric technologies.

Alan Manning has an intimate view of what it takes to provide an outstanding patient experience, not only because he has been COO of Derby, Connecticut–based Planetree for four years, but also because he spent several months in the hospital with his critically ill daughter. That pivotal experience, while traumatic, solidified friendships with his daughter’s nurses and brought him several years later to Planetree, a nonprofit organization started in 1978 by a patient who wanted to help hospitals deliver stronger patient-centered care practices. Planetree works with 700 organizations in more than 17 countries.

In many aspects of healthcare, we see indications of change, with movement toward new payment models and investments in infrastructure to support the delivery of value-based care. Cost control remains a top financial lever, but the discipline is becoming more complex. From a brute-force perspective, controlling cost has a direct effect on operating margin, which provides the classic move of cost control through cost cutting. Now, though, organizations need new command over cost factors themselves.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly with any servers you’re running and provide full support for all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere. A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to protect the technology investments you make now and in the future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.

Oracle has just announced a new microprocessor, and the servers and engineered system that are powered by it. The SPARC M8 processor fits in the palm of your hand, but it contains the result of years of co-engineering of hardware and software together to run enterprise applications with unprecedented speed and security. The SPARC M8 chip contains 32 of today’s most powerful cores for running Oracle Database and Java applications. Benchmarking data shows that the performance of these cores reaches twice the performance of Intel’s x86 cores. This is the result of exhaustive work on designing smart execution units and threading architecture, and on balancing metrics such as core count, memory and IO bandwidth. It also required millions of hours in testing chip design and operating system software on real workloads for database and Java. Having faster cores means increasing application capability while keeping the core count and software investment under control. In other words, a boost

Hyper-complex production meets cognitive computing. Electronics manufacturing is surrounded by continuous complexity. Executives face rising resource costs in traditionally low-cost production markets. They must address increasing customization, shorter lead times, frequently changing requirements and shrinking order sizes – all while managing a sophisticated supply network. They need to examine automation potential and maintain critical institutional knowledge. Thinner margins and increased competition threaten consistent quality, risk greater downtime and reduce desired flexibility. Investments in new equipment and automation systems are increasing the amount of data available from the shop floor, but most is not used to its full potential. Now, cognitive manufacturing is transforming production to address such complexity.
