The shift to value-based care is one of the most significant financial, cultural and technological challenges ever faced by the U.S. healthcare system—and it will affect every stakeholder in the system. Healthcare providers can no longer focus solely on process-oriented measures and instead need metrics that gauge progress to deliver high-value care. This healthcare executive report provides three steps hospital executives can take now as they transition from volume to value and break down silos to create the infrastructure, processes and workflows required to succeed.
Electronic health record (EHR) system implementation is one of the largest IT investments most healthcare systems have ever made but it’s success is largely dependent upon the data which feeds it. One the main data sources for the EHR is the item master, which drives not only supply chain processes but also a broad range of clinical and financial functions. Only with a clean, accurate and complete item master can a healthcare organization trust the outputs generated from its EHRs – from evaluating the clinical effectiveness of products to securing reimbursements. Learn how to execute a master data management strategy to derive the greatest value from your EHR investment.
We harness Shell gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology to create high-purity process oils that open exciting opportunities for your products and operations.
Conventional process oils are derived from crude oil, whereas Shell Risella X and Shell Ondina X are made from pure synthesis gas. That frees them from the impurities and large molecular variations found in mineral oils. Using GTL process oils could enhance your processes and final products to give you a competitive advantage. 
Have you ever experienced product quality issues caused by variations in process oil batches? Do you need a low-viscosity process oil, but have concerns about the effect of volatiles on working conditions? Could you offer enhanced products if you had process oils with distinct characteristics, for example, an extremely narrow hydrocarbon distribution range?
Our GTL process oils contain a high proportion of paraffinic hydrocarbons and are very pure, which provides key qualities for many applications. For in
In this in depth report, readers will learn about the factors driving companies toward a human resources outsourcing model, along with the risks and advantages of outsourcing human resources functions and processes, and the approaches available.
"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
It’s difficult to think of a force that’s having a more revolutionary impact on financial services than digitalization. It’s materially changing everything in this sector: the way processes work; the way services are offered; the customer experience; and the speed at which business is executed and where it happens.Digitalization is driving the innovation edge to exciting new horizons.
A guide to accelerating digitalization while inverting IT spend.

Basic diagramming tools allow business users to define an initial business process and provide a good path to getting your processes off of sticky notes and into a digital format. However, if company-wide collaboration, real-time change management and integration with automation tools are important to you, a dedicated process modeling tool may be your better choice.
A security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform is a valuable tool for organizations who have made appropriate investments in their security operations processes. This recent research from Gartner looks at the necessary preparations that security leaders need to make so that the deployment of a SOAR solution will improve the efficiency of their incident response and security operations teams.

While threat prevention continues to improve with the use of advanced techniques, adversaries are outpacing these advances requiring security teams to implement threat detection and response programs. Security teams are often addressing the process haphazardly, using disconnected point tools and manual processes that consume too many analysts and result in slow mean-time to detection and response. While EDR has enabled security teams to take important steps forward for detection and response, ultimately it can only look at the endpoints which limits the scope of threats that can be detected and if something is detected, limits the view of who and what is affected and thus, how best to respond. ESG therefore recommends looking beyond the endpoint and utilizing natively integrated security solutions across more than just one vector to improve detection and response times. The more data you can knit together, the more effective you can be to uncover the security incidents most dangerous to your organization.
Watch this webinar to learn about the value of XDR: connecting detection and response across multiple security layers. Dave Gruber, senior analyst at ESG, shares recent research and his views on the evolution of threat detection and response; making the case for expanding the capabilities and expectations of detection and response solutions. Wendy Moore, VP of Product Marketing, discusses Trend Micro’s own XDR strategy and the unique value that Trend Micro can bring to detection, investigation and response.
Every commercial organization wants to grow. THrough its unlimited processing power Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the power to make that growth a reality. However, established workflows and processes often hamper the application of true AI, so how do organizations get started on digital transformation without disrupting their existing operations?
Intelligent content holds the key to digital transformation. But what do we mean by intelligent content? How does it all aid digital transformation? How do you take your first steps forward for building an intelligent formation for AI? What are the misconceptions around AI-led transformations?

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily.
Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents.
For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.
