Using strong IT systems, accompanied by a cooperative and inquisitive organizational culture that brings together clinical and financial decision makers together to address pressing issues, put Regions on the path to create powerful healthcare analytics that fuel organizational change.

Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.
An innovative staff scheduling model is reinventing how hospitals leverage their employees for better outcomes; including staff satisfaction, labor costs, and improved quality of care.

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 Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems study annually identifies those health system leadership teams that have most effectively aligned outstanding performance across their organizations, and achieved more reliable outcomes in every member hospital. Truven Health Analytics measures U.S. health systems based on a balanced scorecard across a range of performance factors: care quality, patient safety, use of evidence-based medicine, operational efficiency, and customer perception of care.
Healthcare providers can deliver much more effective care if they have an understanding of the characteristics, attitudes, and self-reported health status of a patient’s age group. By communicating effectively and delivering care in a manner that resonates with that particular group of patients, healthcare providers can strive to achieve better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Patient Safety Indicators (PSI) are a set of metrics that provide information on the potential for inpatient hospital complications and adverse events following surgeries, procedures, and childbirth. PSIs can be used to help hospitals identify potential adverse events that might need further evaluation, provide the opportunity to assess the incidence of adverse events and complications, and understand patient safety events on a broader level.
The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies U.S. hospitals that have achieved the best performance on a balanced scorecard of performance measures. Based on comparisons between study winners and a peer group of similar hospitals that were not winners, winners are achieving better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. If all cardiovascular providers performed at the same level of this year’s winners, almost 8,000 additional lives could be saved; nearly 3,500 heart patients could be complication free; and more than $1.3 billion could be saved.
The shift to healthcare’s value-based model is being accelerated by measurable goals and an aggressive timeline. With improved patient experience as the objective, addressing root causes that impact patient satisfaction scores is crucial to success.

Did you know that two-thirds of U.S. health care spend, or $1.8 trillion, goes purely to salaries and wages? Yet our patient outcomes are on par with countries such as Cuba and Slovenia. Health care reform is changing the way our health care system operates and will ultimately affect your bottom line.
Dr. Robert Kocher, M.D. has been a key influencer of health care reform efforts in the U.S. In this white paper, Dr. Kocher discusses:
•Three recent policy changes
•Four potential outcomes of health care reform
•The evolving roles within the health care system
The U.S. spends more on health care than any country in the world – to the tune of $7,290 per capita per year. Yet this massive spend does not equate to high quality care for Americans. As a result, $300 billion is wasted every year.
If you’re a self-insured employer focused on driving down health care costs and better meeting the health care needs of your employees, this paper provides valuable and actionable insights to help you achieve this goal.
This white paper reveals:
• How low-quality care affects both the cost of care as well as patient outcomes
• Five best practices in helping employees identify high-value providers
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
