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.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless
tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least
on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have
begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a
connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots
are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while
some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.
Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a
sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
In today's digitalized economy, web applications and the browsers that connect
to them predominantly rely on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security
(TLS) protocols to encrypt sensitive business information and personally identifiable
information (PII) – such as customers’ credit card details, user account passwords,
corporate sales and payroll data, etc. – before sending them securely over the internet.
SSL/TLS encryption ensures information transmitted over the internet through e-mails,
e-commerce and online banking transactions and a myriad of cloud and online services
are kept secure.

How Six Companies Innovate with API Management
Companies are hungry for ways to innovate in the digital age, and as enterprises have experimented with new technologies, it’s become clear that success requires expanding the reach of digital assets beyond a business’s internal talent. The connected experiences that customers demand occur across a range of channels, and the people building those experiences can be a developer building a mobile app in her garage just as easily as an IT engineer. Businesses need to make their digital assets leverageable to more developers so they can build more digital experiences across more channels, scalably and securely, to engage more customers.
In this brief, we explore the diverse ways that innovation leaders have leveraged APIs to transform the way their companies do business. Download this brief to learn more about how to use the power of APIs to open new business channels for your company.
