The ripple effect of healthcare reform is beginning to impact care delivery strategies as care management now falls increasingly to providers. According to a recent HealthLeaders Intelligence survey, hospital leaders are making progress with care management efforts, but more robust tools will be needed if hospitals want to scale up. The October 2014 survey polled 134 senior, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information leaders across the healthcare spectrum. The majority of respondents were from nonprofit organizations (63%), while the remainder (37%) came from for-profit settings.

The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.

The shift from inpatient to outpatient care is increasing as hospitals transition from volume to value. A specific shift is seen in interventional cardiology treatment (cardiac catheterization, intracoronary stents, and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties [PTCA]), which is moving from an inpatient hospital to outpatient hospital setting. Preliminary data show that most interventional cardiology procedures will soon be performed in the hospital outpatient setting. It will be important for hospitals to consider future demand and volume for interventional cardiology services; capacity for an increase in hospital outpatient volume; and staffing and operational implications.

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.

HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

A decade ago, hospital leaders viewed cost containment as a distant option to that of building topline revenue through increased volumes and rates. But with the road to profitability choked off by a recession, the ACA, and double-digit increases in healthcare inflation, most have been left pursuing a flurry of initiatives to cut operational costs and maintain positive margins.

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. [478] 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

Operational resilience is high on the regulatory agenda in the UK. A joint discussion paper in 2018 took a broader view of operational resilience to cover all risks to the provision of critical business services with a greater emphasis on recovery and response when incidents occur. Regulators now place the same importance on operational resilience as on financial resilience. This represents a fundamental shift that companies are at different stages of addressing. Based on discussions with clients and regulators here are ten conversations to help guide you through this new landscape.

Banking is rapidly being transformed by one, distinct theme: digital technology. For those leading the charge, there is no longer a distinction between a business strategy and a technology strategy. There is just strategy driven by technology and the client needs it will evolve to continually meet. In this new world, upgrading existing operations and making legacy systems fit new challenges is not going to be enough. To succeed, banks need to become future-ready, connected enterprises, backed by a new type of technology and operating model that is nimble enough to adapt to new challenges and growth opportunities.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity. The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities far more quickly, both now and moving forwa

The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing. Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational efficiency.

Your organization depends on all kinds of inline tools to keep your network up and running, but those same tools can fail, leaving you vulnerable. Moreover, as network speeds increase, slower tools can bottleneck network traffic, making organizations purchase more and more tools, which then introduce complexity and cost. There is a better way to increase network resiliency while reducing security issues, and that’s inline bypass.

Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs). EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo
