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.
Even as the move to electronic health records (EHR) progresses in earnest, there are a myriad of challenges involving legacy data systems. Chief among these challenges is the cost of maintaining obsolete systems solely for the patient information they contain. When up to 70% of a typical IT budget is spent on maintaining the current IT infrastructure and application portfolio, organizations have little left to invest in much-needed innovation. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Survey, many organizations are still adjusting after their migration to a new EHR system. Hospitals need to get a better grasp on all forms and sources of data that they have—and the data they don’t yet have—so that the right information can be delivered to the right individual, and in the right context, at the point of care.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.
Keeping the lights on in a manufacturing environment remains top priority for industrial companies. All too often, factories are in a reactive mode, relying on manual inspections that risk downtime because they don’t usually reveal actionable problem data.

For most companies, the Human Resources department has a long history of guarding sensitive employee data. Rows of beige file cabinets line a back closet where only those with a key and knowledge of the filing system have access to the personal information of countless employees. The greatest risk to this data has always been fire or water damage, but that’s quickly changing with the emergence of online data storage.

If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures.
A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed to determine the current state and reliability of your electrical system. For more information on Power System Assessments, download our white paper, "Assessing the Health of a Facility's Electrical Power Distribution System".
