The tax on high-cost health plans, which are often referred to as Cadillac plans, is expected to impact a considerable share of the plans provided by healthcare organizations for their own employees, as much as 39% by 2020. The implications are significant because the excess-benefits tax requires the employer to pay 40% on the value of the portion of the plan that exceeds thresholds set by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Employers also need to consider that the tax is measured as a direct function of plan cost, and not actuarial plan value, and that a number of factors can drive excise-tax exposure.

Learn how to execute a master data management strategy to derive the greatest value from your EHR investment.

"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN. No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward. Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."

It’s not uncommon to find slick-looking user interfaces, well-run product demos, and exciting sales narratives when evaluating a data management platform (DMP), but don’t let those features distract from the elements needed for day-to-day and long-term strategic success of a DMP. Whether you’re looking to invest in a DMP for the first time or want to switch to a new provider, there are a few crucial factors to consider before signing on the dotted line. Key functionality, architecture, and partnership dynamics are all important factors, but they rarely surface until your team is hands-on and using the platform. Once you dig in, it can quickly become apparent that a shiny interface and smart storytelling are a distraction from what really matters—at this point, it’s often too late. Avoid buyer’s remorse by considering these seven facets of all DMP providers before making your decision.

A&BI platforms are transitioning from delivering simple, manual self-service to supporting more advanced, automated analytic use cases via growing, augmented, ML-driven capabilities. Data and analytics leaders should enable broader use cases to increase their investments’ business impact. Analytics and business intelligence (A&BI) platforms exhibit differences in functional capabilities, particularly in their support for advanced analytics, data source connectivity and embedded functionality. As the market matures, the capabilities required to build and deliver user-friendly analytics dashboards are the least differentiated. The trend toward assisting users with augmented data discovery functionality continues, but many products still lack enough support for this critical capability. When viewed across the whole span of capabilities, significant differences remain between competing platforms and, therefore, also between which are most appropriate for a given use case.

“A happy worker is a productive worker.” It’s a core belief that has driven Mrs. G’s Services for almost 20 years. A privately owned home health care agency, Mrs. G’s has about 450 workers and three offices that service the New York metropolitan area. Priding itself on employing passionate people and providing compassionate care, the organization’s primary mission is to provide comprehensive and quality service. Problem was, not all of the agency’s workers were happy. From caregivers to fulltime employees, people throughout Mrs. G’s were frustrated by the agency’s payroll solution. It wasn’t just that the payroll software was insufficient and sometimes downright ineffective. It wasn’t just that it persistently failed to meet the needs of agency management and the company’s caregivers. It was that a routine function — like payroll! — was violating the company’s core belief and making it more difficult for Mrs. G’s to achieve its mission.

Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs. Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.
