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.

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.

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population. Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.
