This report reveals how a growing number of patient experience programs have moved beyond focusing primarily on training nurses to also include physicians and a host of nonclinical staff. Another sign of the degree to which organizations are embracing patient experience is the increasing number which feature a chief patient experience officer (or individual with similar responsibilities) on the senior leadership team.

Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.
Spending on supplies and pharmaceutical services varies among U.S. hospitals. It is not uncommon for hospitals with similar types of patients, including case mix and severity, to have significant differences in purchasing intensity for certain clinical services. Even small changes in efficiency can make a difference for hospitals and health systems, because supply-chain spending typically accounts for hospitals’ biggest spend after labor costs. Costs totaled about $74 billion in 2012, according to the Healthcare Supply Chain Association.
The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies hospitals that achieve the best performance on a scorecard of performance measures. This year, based on comparisons between the winners and a peer group of similar high-volume hospitals that were not winners, the study found that if all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of this year’s winners, approximately 9,500 additional patients could survive, more than $1 billion could be saved, and almost 3,000 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free. This is based on an analysis of Medicare patients; if the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater.
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.

Bon nombre de propriétaires de PME pensent que cela n’arrive qu’aux autres et que leur entreprise est trop petite pour être la cible de piratages, d’attaques par rançongiciel et d’autres types de cybercriminalité.

Platform businesses are reshaping our economy and disrupting entire markets by seamlessly connecting buyers and sellers. However, processing payments and the exchange of value on a platform or marketplace can be challenging.
Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the challenges that platforms and their sellers face, and the solutions they seek. Through a global online survey of 2,030 platform sellers and four in-depth interviews, Forrester found that platforms struggle to provide their sellers with much-needed payment capabilities, reporting, and customer support services with in-house resources alone. Meanwhile, sellers demand that platforms provide these services and will prefer platforms that are service-rich over platforms that are service-poor.
• The complexities of managing a platform force executives to divert resources, which stalls growth.
• Going global is easier said than done.
• Sellers will flock to platforms that simplify the process of sellin

Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall. But delivering tools for high-quality collaboration is often challenging, due to the need for businesses of all sizes to support a wide range of personal and business devices. Mixing disparate devices with complex conferencing solutions often lead to frustrated employees, while businesses face a labor-intensive, costly endeavor without a high ROI. In addition, collaboration is evolving with businesses creating small "huddle" spaces and open workspaces that increase the demand for ubiquitous, effective conferencing.
The Intel Unite ' solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, high-quality collaboration experience. Whether you select the
Key considerations when developing a strong and customer-friendly approach to intelligent authentication. Bank fraud is on the rise. In fact, according to a recent survey of 43 major banks around the world, it’s not just the number of fraud cases that is going up; so, too, is the value of fraud overall. In large part, this increase in fraud is the result of identity theft scams. Rather than attempting some sort of high-stakes virtual bank heist for all the gold in the vault, most online thieves seem content simply stealing money from every-day customer’s accounts when they aren’t looking.

By partnering with an end-to-end solution, merchants can increase approval rates and eliminate costly chargebacks and manual reviews. Those have been Riskified’s traditional benefits since we first struck out to change the eCommerce world in 2013. But in 2019, that’s simply not enough anymore.
As eCommerce merchants continue to innovate, the expectations of American consumers have also risen. They expect a multitude of fulfillment options, and they demand that merchants provide them securely. For a business to stand out, offering an excellent product or service is not enough — it’s also about limiting confusion, limiting friction, providing reassurance, and creating the smoothest possible purchase journey every single time. It’s hard to do that alone. That’s what we’re here for.

Legacy fraud detection systems often approve or decline orders based solely on a handful of order details. Modern solutions are far more sophisticated, instantly considering hundreds of data points for each order, resulting in more accurate decisions.

There is no easy way to establish the “going rate” for comparable services, because all services are differentiated by other forces, such as individual processes, brand equity, and features. If you’re going to price your services simply based on the competition, you’d better ensure you’re making an exact apples-to-apples comparison, which is easier said than done and not something we recommend. Consider instead, a model where your pricing is based on how much it truly costs you to perform one hour of service. In this eBook, we show you how to calculate your full hourly overhead burden–so you can set the right price for your IT services.
