From Ebola preparedness to leading large-scale changes, today’s master’s degree programs are producing leaders eager to tackle this generation’s most pressing challenges.
Rahul Anand, MD, is chief epidemiologist at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut, where he heads up all infectious disease prevention activities for the nonprofit integrated delivery network, from Ebola preparedness to hand washing. He’s also adjunct assistant professor in the department of medicine at the University of Utah, where he worked full time prior to moving to the East Coast. On top of that, he is one-third of the way through an MBA program at the University of Massachusetts Isenberg School of Management. It will take him another two years to finish the online program.
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.
Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.
Today in healthcare the communication infrastructure is the backbone in IT. New reimbursement models are amplifying the need for care coordination, and communication between multiple departments, constituencies, and workflows is required. High-performing healthcare systems are adopting enterprise communication solutions to eliminate silos of information, improve patient care during critical situations, and make the most of their IT budget.
The changing healthcare environment has put pressure on healthcare organizations to deliver top-quality care while keeping costs under control. Superior operational and financial performance can be measured by high margins and low costs. But there are significant operational indicators that differ between high- and low-performing hospitals, depending on whether performance is defined by expense or by margin. Often, hospitals with the lowest costs are considered the most successful. But low-cost hospitals do not necessarily behave the same way as hospitals with healthy margins. Low-cost hospitals can include both efficient hospitals and hospitals that are in dire financial circumstances that have forced them to even eliminate expenses necessary for their long-term fiscal health.
Partners HealthCare has implemented a program that helps surgeons and other clinicians easily apply best practice guidelines to a patient’s unique status. In this case study executives share the secret to boosting rates of appropriate use of high-cost procedures, and eliminating medical necessity reviews.
Registered nurses, with targeted training, are the secret weapon in the race for comprehensive care coordination.
Accountable care organizations. Patient-centered medical homes. Value-based reimbursements. Bundled payments. Healthcare is experiencing a revolution brought on by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that aims to put patients squarely in the middle of all their clinical and financial decisions. Payers, including government agencies and insurers, are tying the quality and safety of patient care to reimbursements, making patient-centered care a necessity in all settings.
"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
If you’re relying on manual processes for testing applications, artificial and automated intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can help you build more efficient continuous frameworks for quality delivery.
In this on-demand webinar, “Continuous Intelligent Testing: Applying AI and ML to Your Testing Practices,” you’ll learn how to:
Use AI and ML as the new, necessary approach for testing intelligent applications.
Strategically apply AI and ML to your testing practices.
Identify the tangible benefits of continuous intelligent testing.
Reduce risk while driving test efficiency and improvement.
This webinar offers practical steps to applying AI and ML to your app testing.
The speaker, Jeff Scheaffer, is senior vice president and general manager of the Continuous Delivery Business Unit at CA Technologies. His specialties include DevOps, Mobility, Software as a Service (SaaS) and Continuous Delivery (CDCI).

Qualsiasi elemento che entra in contatto con l'applicazione migliora o peggiora le performance. Stabilire se ciò sia attribuibile all'infrastruttura, a una variazione del codice, a un'API, alla rete, all'architettura applicativa o a un servizio connesso è estremamente complesso.In questo eBook, descriveremo i nuovi ambienti estremamente articolati e complessi necessari per supportare un business digitale moderno e analizzeremo come un modello inedito di APM (Application Performance Management) possa fornire informazioni fruibili fondamentali per massimizzare le prestazioni.
Casi todo lo que toca una aplicación acaba por mejorar o degradar su rendimiento. El reto es determinar si es atribuible a la infraestructura, un cambio en el código, una API, la red, la arquitectura de la aplicación o un servicio conectado.
En este libro electrónico, tratamos los nuevos entornos altamente complejos y caóticos necesarios para dar soporte a un negocio digital moderno y cómo un nuevo modelo de gestión del rendimiento de las aplicaciones (APM) puede proporcionar los conocimientos prácticos necesarios para maximizar el rendimiento.

La forza lavoro di oggi è abituata a utilizzare tecnologie personali che semplificano le comunicazioni e la vita quotidiana. Molti strumenti aziendali, tuttavia, non sono riusciti a rimanere al passo. La maggior parte delle attuali soluzioni di project and portfolio management non è in grado di fornire modi semplici per svolgere le attività quotidiane.
Non facilitano le comunicazioni contestuali che agevolerebbero la risoluzione dei problemi e non dispongono di funzionalità chiave: capacità di restringere il focus ai dati pertinenti, di eseguire il drill-down per accedere a ulteriori informazioni e di prevedere in modo efficiente le necessità finanziarie e modellare i risultati.
