The shift to value-based care is one of the most significant financial, cultural and technological challenges ever faced by the U.S. healthcare system—and it will affect every stakeholder in the system. Healthcare providers can no longer focus solely on process-oriented measures and instead need metrics that gauge progress to deliver high-value care. This healthcare executive report provides three steps hospital executives can take now as they transition from volume to value and break down silos to create the infrastructure, processes and workflows required to succeed.
Electronic health record (EHR) system implementation is one of the largest IT investments most healthcare systems have ever made but it’s success is largely dependent upon the data which feeds it. One the main data sources for the EHR is the item master, which drives not only supply chain processes but also a broad range of clinical and financial functions. Only with a clean, accurate and complete item master can a healthcare organization trust the outputs generated from its EHRs – from evaluating the clinical effectiveness of products to securing reimbursements. Learn how to execute a master data management strategy to derive the greatest value from your EHR investment.
Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.

"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
"Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy.
One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware. "

Your organization’s websites are some of its most valuable assets. But they are vulnerable to security issues and criminal attacks. Fortunately, many of these problems are preventable with effective, integrated website security management.
For ecommerce sites, you can calculate the cost of downtime in terms of lost revenue. You can add to this the considerable cost of remediation, and beyond this, the damage to customer confidence and trust that may be intangible but will be significant. Even when there are no security issues, inefficient processes result in deployment of additional resource that drives up cost.
This article explains why in comparison to the above costs, investing in security management, particularly across SSL/TLS Certificate management, can be a highly efficient and cost effective measure to take.

Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers.
Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously.
What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.

New technology has greatly influenced factories and plants, resulting in new operational approaches to maximize benefits and achieve 100% ROI in a very short time.
It has to be quick and easy for people to pay. At the same time, fraudsters are probing the weaknesses of new digital processes.
As the person who can decide whether a transaction is accepted or rejected, fraud managers have a pivotal role. They’re not just preventing losses from chargebacks. They’re gatekeepers to accepting more revenue. It’s a complex job. But get it right, and they enable their business to engage customers better – across devices and places. And that can mean supporting the very growth of the business. In this landscape, the idea that a technology like machine learning might be the answer to all the industry’s needs is attractive. But while machine learning should be a key part of an effective fraud strategy, the truth is that there’s no silver bullet. So, in this paper, we’ll look at how best to put machine learning to use. By employing it in tandem with expert insight, merchants can use it to accept the optimal number of payments. And make a direct impact on the

Before Workday, Panera Bread’s payroll processes were manual, inefficient, and error-prone,
and payroll nightmares and compliance risks were a regular occurrence. Complex systems and costly
integrations made it impossible for the company to keep up with its rapid growth or gain valuable
insights into global labor expenses. See the infographic to learn why unifying HR, payroll, time tracking,
and absence management in a single system allows Panera to use one consistent, flexible, and scalable
system across the U.S. and Canada.
As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.

This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring.
The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take.
In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better
