Physicians and advanced practice providers are crucial to every performance, quality, safety, care utilization and patient satisfaction goals. These factors significantly affect an organization's financial viability, which is why providers' compensation must be aligned with them.
Nearly six years after passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the healthcare industry is in the midst of a massive retooling that is dramatically altering the way we think about cost management, strategic partnerships, and customer service.
Fee-for-service reimbursement is giving way to new models of care delivery and payment to support a system based on pay-for-value. With financial risk or payments tied to value measures (such as patient satisfaction, clinical performance, and population health), compensation and reimbursement will increasingly be tied to value-based incentives.
Some factors commonly used to explain poor operating performance do not prevent many hospitals from being highly profitable. For example, Truven Health AnalyticsTM has found that rates of uncompensated care, drug expense, and other factors do not seem to differ between unprofitable and very profitable hospitals. But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.
Healthcare billing and claims handling has become increasingly complex. With the transition to Version 5010 of the HIPAA electronic transaction standards, the expansion of billing codes under ICD-10, and the ever-changing requirements of insurance companies and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), it can be nearly impossible for providers to keep up.

Fraud is scary, and there are many valid reasons for merchants to decline suspicious transactions in the name of fraud prevention. But often, in the quest to avoid abuse, risk-averse vendors take defensive measures too far. According to industry data, the average merchant loses 5.5% of their revenue to false declines — perfectly legitimate orders, rejected because they seem suspicious.

The advantages blockchain can bring to the automotive ecosystem, both in facilitating
collaboration among participants and enabling capabilities for new mobility business
models, have gotten the attention of automotive executives. In addition to enabling a
single source of data, blockchain can facilitate device-to-device transactions, smart
contracts, and real-time processing and settlement. For the automotive industry, this
translates into improvements and operational efficiencies in areas such as supply chain
transparency, financial transactions between ecosystem participants, authenticating
access to cars, and customer experience and loyalty.
If a retailer views “Buy Online, Pickup In-Store” as purely e-commerce, they’re losing. Each transaction in which customers pickup in-store is a chance to add value to the relationship. Whether that means speed, cross-selling, or a unique bit of customer service that amplifies the visit, BOPIS plays just as important a role as the rest of the brick-and-mortar experience. Some trips may not translate to additional purchases right then and there, but the way a retailer handles pickup can dictate how the customer feels about the brand.
To get the most out of BOPIS, retailers should ask themselves a few important questions.

2017 war kein einfaches Jahr für einen CIO / CISO, und auch 2018 gibt es derzeit keine Anzeichen dafür, dass es einfacher wird. Bei so vielen Datenverstößen, die sogar Karrieren beendeten, allein im Jahr 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, um nur einige zu nennen) und mit weltweit verschärften regulatorischen Anforderungen haben CIOs / CISOs die unternehmerische Verantwortung, ihren Ansatz zur Datensicherheit zu überdenken.
Abgesehen von der Einhaltung gesetzlicher Vorschriften sind Unternehmen gegenüber ihren Kunden und Aktionären verp?ichtet, Daten zu schützen und ihre Gefährdung nicht nur gegenüber externen Angreifern, sondern auch gegenüber Mitarbeitern zu minimieren. Die im Jahr 2017 am häu?gsten genutzte Methode für Datendiebstahl war das Phishing, welches sich an interne Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen richtete (siehe Report zur Untersuchung von Datenverstößen im Jahr 2017). Damit wurden diese Mitarbeiter unwissentlich mitschuldig an der Datenverletzung: Über 80% der erfolgreichen Cyber-An
Il 2017 non è stato un anno facile per essere un CIO / CISO e il 2018 non sembra mostrare alcun segno di miglioramento in tal senso. Con così tante violazioni di dati in grado di rovinare un’intera carriera nel solo 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo per citare solo alcuni casi) e con requisiti normativi più rigorosi in tutto il mondo, i CIO / CISO hanno la responsabilità societaria di rivedere il loro approccio alla sicurezza dei dati.

You may have heard that storing device data for more than a few months has no value because fraudsters frequently switch devices. Our data shows otherwise.
Over a typical 30-day period, iovation saw 2M transactions from devices with a history of fraud that was first seen on our network 3+ years earlier. That number is even more sobering for devices first seen 1-2 years earlier: 16M transactions. Fortunately, iovation’s unique device history capability provides our customers with the knowledge of whether a device has a history of fraud.
