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.
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.
Partners HealthCare has implemented a program that helps surgeons and other clinicians easily apply best practice guidelines to a patient’s unique status. In this case study executives share the secret to boosting rates of appropriate use of high-cost procedures, and eliminating medical necessity reviews.
Healthcare organizations are facing uncertain times, which is putting strains on their revenue cycle management. Automation can help lower staff costs, enhance clean claims rates, cut denial rates, improve patient collections and reduce bad debt.
Healthcare organizations are facing uncertain times, which is putting enormous strains on their RCM. This white paper will show how you can lower your staff costs, enhance clean claims rates, cut denial rates, improve patient collections and reduce bad debt.
How can providers and insurers reduce costs and increase patient satisfaction? In the evolving value-based care (VBC) model, better healthcare IT is a must have. L.E.K.'s Joseph Johnson and Harsha Madannavar identify key success strategies in our latest Executive Insights.

Building a data-driven organization takes more than technology. And, healthcare leaders can all agree that issues facing today’s industry are daunting; determining how to react in a way that matches your organization’s strengths and vulnerabilities may be even more challenging. With the right resources in place, you can take pragmatic steps to reduce data silos and deliver efficient, coordinated care across all your settings.
The client, under a managed services contract for infrastructure services, was dissatisfied with the existing service provider due to stagnant quality of support, lack of innovation and inferior/ deteriorating end user. They wanted reduced downtime and optimal operational metric, and enhanced end-user experience. LTI helped in executing a series of interventions as part of the “Amplified Outcomes” support model.
a. 30% reduction in TCO
b. 65% reduction in alerts
c. 70% reduction in P1 tickets
As water is increasingly being recognized as a high-value commodity, aging assets present a major threat to organizations that treat and deliver it. Improving asset performance is one of the most effective strategies water and wastewater plants and networks can implement to reduce costs and protect quality.
Data-driven asset performance management can help food & beverage manufacturers leverage tools such as equipment efficiency solutions, augmented reality and secure asset connection to transition from a reactive to a prescriptive approach. This will not only help reduce CapEx and OpEx, but also empower the workforce, whilst meeting manufacturing KPIs.
This report from Frost & Sullivan shows how manufacturers can achieve 20-30% cost savings by changing their asset maintenance approach.

Read the Gigamon paper, “Harnessing the Power of Metadata for Security,” to see why metadata is the new security super power. Metadata is data about data. It is a summary or high-level view of data. Providing security tools with a summary of the packet data traversing networks, metadata becomes a powerful weapon for enterprises looking to separate signals from noise, reduce time to threat detection and improve overall security efficacy.

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
The University of Melbourne deployed Automation Anywhere’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) technology to reduce manual work and automate a range of administrative processes across student admissions, faculty administration, and supplier tracking.
The deployed software bots now automate the entry of all data and attachments for new admission applications, and the university has slowly expanded its automation capabilities for staff across other faculties.
This has allowed the University of Melbourne to increase the efficiency of critical business processes, boost staff engagement, and improve customer experience for its teachers and student body.
Automation is already pervasive in our lives—from tried-and-true mechanized assembly lines to the dawn of self-driving cars. But how can you use advanced forms of automation to improve your business processes?
Download this starter guide for a detailed look at robotic process automation (RPA), a type of automation that can help you:
Also explore the definition and features of RPA, as well as the types of automation software.
"Global professional services firm, Arup, moved from Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) to Cisco Umbrella. By implementing a secure internet gateway in conjunction with next-gen endpoint security, Arup secured access to the internet wherever users go, reduced its exposure to malware and improved the ability to detect, respond and remediate when necessary.
-Substantially reduced administrative time
-Accelerated response and remediation process
-Increased performance of cloud applications
-Reduced time to investigate"
"The average company uses more than 50 security vendors: firewalls, web proxies, SIEM, appliances, intelligence - and the list goes on. Do you have more security tools than you can handle? There’s an easier way to make the most of your existing investments.
We'll share ways you can reduce security alerts and extend your security off network, anywhere users go, with Cisco Umbrella. Built with a bidirectional API, Cisco Umbrella easily integrates with the other systems in your stack, so you can extend protection from on-premises security appliances to devices and sites beyond your perimeter — and amplify investments you’ve already made.

? Improve speed-to-security across all your cloud applications
? Extend security on and off-network without sacrificing usability"
With upward of a billion vehicles in operation across the world and rising urbanization there is an unprecedented level of traffic and congestion in our major towns and cities. On the front-line, are the emergency dispatchers and responders facing complex challenges as they attempt to overcome congested traffic, unexpected road closures and work zones as quickly as possible.
Each additional minute of response time has the potential to save a life, reduce suffering or prevent unnecessary property damage. Most public safety and security organizations, however, are still using legacy location technology, which has its limitations and does not properly address some key challenges.
As one of the world’s leading location platforms, HERE shares insights and solutions to improve emergency response times with real-time location data
