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 annual Truven Health AnalyticsTM 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. The study revealed that the nation’s best hospitals had a lower mortality index, considering patient severity; had fewer patient complications; followed accepted care protocols; had lower 30-day mortality and 30-day readmission rates; sent patients home sooner; provided more timely emergency care; kept expenses low, both in-hospital and through the aftercare process; and scored better on patient surveys of hospital experience

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.

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.

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.

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.

To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets

IT Transformation is a concept that is not synonymous with digital transformation, but the two concepts are fundamentally linked. A business that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed legacy technologies. Updating IT often yields a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness ? tasks become automated, processes streamlined, and resources freed up. These IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation enabling businesses to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors in today’s digital economy.

Why HyperIntelligence? Today, despite massive investments in data, IT infrastructure, and analytics software, the adoption of analytics continues to lag behind. In fact, according to Gartner, most organizations fail to hit the 30% mark. That means that more than 70% of people at most organizations are going without access to the critical information they need to perform to the best of their abilities. What’s stopping organizations from breaking through the 30% barrier and driving the pervasive adoption of intelligence? Simple. The majority of existing tools only cater to users who are naturally analytically inclined—the analysts, data scientists, and architects of the world. The other 70%—the people making the operational decisions daily within a business—simply lack the time, skill, or desire to seek out data and intelligence on their own. HyperIntelligence helps organizations operationalize their existing investments and arm everyone across the organization with intelligence. Whether

Application performance and delivery have changed. Should your network change too? Cloud is changing the fundamentals of how IT teams deliver applications and manage their performance. Applications are increasingly deployed farther from users, crossing networks outside of IT’s direct control. Instead of enterprise data centers, many apps now reside in public and hybrid cloud environments. There are even new breeds of applications, built upon microservices and containers. Today, IT needs modern solutions that: ? Extend on-premises networks, apps, and infrastructure resources to the cloud. ? Maintain high levels of performance, user experience, and security across all applications, including microservices based apps. ? Sustain operational consistency across on-premises and cloud environments. ? Move away from the expense, complexity, and poor performance of traditional networking methods. These solutions are available for apps running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) through the allia
