The shift to value-based care is one of the most significant financial, cultural and technological challenges ever faced by the U.S. healthcare systemóand 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.
Today in healthcare the communication infrastructure is the backbone in IT. New reimbursement models are amplifying the need for care coordi≠nation, 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.

Businesses expect IT management to demonstrate their contributions to end-user benefits and the bottom line while addressing immediate needs and long-term performance management goals. This white paper presents IT2020, a new performance management paradigm for meeting both of these expectations.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.
ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
Enterprise content is growing at an average rate of 200% per year-and the risks of noncompliance are growing even faster. This paper examines the business and technical difficulties of managing content from disparate systems and presents the most viable alternatives for addressing these challenges.
Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
Managing service delivery in todayŪs complex and dynamic business environments demands new and different approaches from IT. The explosive growth and the rate of change of information has brought particularly daunting challenges for IT that have contributed to incredibly complex underlying infrastructures. To get a true picture of all of the components necessary to support an IT or Business Service, you must access and bring together data that resides in disparate data silos throughout the enterprise.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
Aligning IT and business perspectives requires the ability to create links between configuration information in the CMDB and the business service as experienced by the user. Service Dependency Mapping (SDM) products automate the process of creating and maintaining these links.
Generally, CMDBs populated by discovery tools alone simply aren't usable. They fail because they contain massive amounts of irrelevant information. You avoid this pitfall by correctly populating your CMDB in four simple steps.
Because business success is tightly fused with technology, IT costs are rising, and this trend is expected to continue. As a result, businesses are demanding that IT be more than a static resource. IT is expected to deliver business results with a measurable contribution to the organization's bottom line.
ITIL provides a framework of customizable best practice initiatives that help organizations consistently deliver high-quality IT services. Effective ITIL implementation adds value to the IT infrastructure and improves business and service delivery.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
