Know when, why and how your current EHR platform may fall short of delivering a transformative community of care—and develop a new value-based care model that elevates population health and grows revenue across your organization.
Health care providers cope with an avalanche of complex rules, regulations, and administrative processes just to run their practices. At the same time, costs are increasing and reimbursement rates are declining. The only way for a practice to achieve financial health in this demanding environment is to learn how to operate at peak performance level.
In the beginning of 2019, a National Safety Council (NSC) study revealed that for the first time in US recorded history, the odds of dying from an opioid overdose (1:96) surpassed those of dying in an auto accident (1:103).
As a result, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of preventable injury deaths in the United States.
The growing trend of opioid-related workplace incidents is a major concern for supply chains across the world. In fact, a recent study by Massachusetts Department of Public Health shows higher opioid overdose incidents occurring in industries that have a higher chance of worker-related injury. Among these, construction and manufacturing are the two industries most heavily affected.
This whitepaper discusses tips for dealing with the opioid epidemic and gives clarity around OSHA drug testing regulations.
Electricity provides us with lights and power, both on the job and at home. It’s such a normal part of our lives that we often forget that all that power can be dangerous, too.
We’ve all experienced minor electric shocks, but shocks can be severe enough to kill. Careless use of electricity causes 10 percent of job- related deaths, as well as many serious injuries.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has some very detailed regulations designed to keep electricity from becoming a dangerous hazard.

In the arena of corporate governance and compliance, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) has commanded considerable attention; in the healthcare industry, it's HIPAA; similar regulations target the financial services and energy sectors. Organizations can use technology to meet compliance demands in a cost-effective way.
The data security challenges in the healthcare industry have never been as challenging as they are today. Not only must healthcare providers comply with HIPAA regulations concerning patient privacy and electronic data security, they must also guard against identity theft as well more complex scenarios of insurance data theft, medical identity theft and the adulteration of health records.

We live in a mobile, digital era where health information is at our fingertips. With the touch of a button, patients can see test results, track prescriptions, and sign up for clinical research. And yet it still takes over a decade to bring breakthrough treatments to market. Scientific productivity must improve: clinical trials are costly and time-consuming, and regulations mandate increased scrutiny and compliance.
The patients who rely on your scientific leadership are expecting more. How are you meeting their needs? While intensive research and study are still a prerequisite for success, there is a better way to develop new products and therapies.

When the U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, among the law's many provisions was the establishment of formal regulations designed to protect the confidentiality and security of patient information. In addition to mandating new policies and procedures, the HIPAA security regulations require mechanisms for controlling access to patient data on healthcare providers' information technology (IT) systems.
Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h
