Healthcare reform regulations, increasing costs, and more competition are driving employers and their health plans to focus more than ever on opportunities to reduce cost trends. For example, the country experienced a 3.0% growth in per capita gross (allowed) medical and pharmacy costs from 2012 to 2013. Truven Health Analytics anticipates those costs in 2014 and 2015 will increase by 4% to 5% or more. By taking a data-driven approach, payers can manage costs and, ultimately, make their benefit programs sustainable in the context of healthcare reform. They can also maximize opportunities to improve population health and productivity and optimize the delivery of care.
Creating a state-of-the-art clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program isn’t just about boosting coding accuracy. It’s a key strategy in managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care, say healthcare leaders. That transition is a risky endeavor that is putting hospital and physician financial performance to the test. As hospitals participate in new care and business models aimed at improving value, leaders must ensure that their organizations are able to maintain reimbursement levels, effectively treat the chronically ill—especially in outpatient settings—and gather accurate data that will allow them to assess performance and segment their varying populations. While some organizations often believe they are leaving revenue on the table because of documentation and coding issues, CDI offers numerous opportunities for improving financial performance, finds a recent HealthLeaders Media survey of 149 healthcare executives at provider organizations.
We know that primary care is challenging today, but these challenges don’t have to derail your practice’s success. This resource from Greenway takes the top three challenges in primary care and explains how specialty-specific tools can help you meet them by achieving better clinical outcomes, improving population health, lowering costs and increasing practice profitability, while still providing compassionate care to patients.
Somnia’s new white paper, “Bending the Healthcare Cost Curve Toward Improved Anesthesia Value,” details how partnering with an anesthesia team that closely examines and leverages input and throughput opportunities help bend the healthcare cost curve toward improved anesthesia value.

The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. They’re in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. That’s the modern reality of business life—it’s happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, it’s happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are it’s no longer 9 ‘til 5.

Organizations that embrace and practice agility are proven to be more effective in dealing with change. Key to fostering agility is continuous learning and development. Learning is not an event-based occurrence where one-time training can satisfy skill gaps; learning opportunities need to be accessible, targeted, and continuous.
With a strong learning culture that aligns with business objectives, companies are better able to embrace an agile mindset, and with increased agility, performance will improve and the overall business impact will increase.

In the digital economy, data is becoming more interconnected every day. The volume of highly-connected data is growing rapidly, while also becoming a highly-valued corporate asset. By exploring relationships among people, processes and things, new business opportunities emerge, helping grow your business's competitive advantage.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
