    HOW DO HOSPITALS CONTROL THE DELUGE OF INFORMATION?

    Communications in healthcare have become a web of information that is difficult to navigate and manage. Beeps from patient monitoring systems, constantly changing on-call schedules, diverse mobile devices, and the rise in care complexity mean more sophisticated communication technology is required to connect the right people with the right information for top-notch patient care.

    In this eBrief, you’ll learn nine tips to cope with the chaos and improve patient care.

  • Seizing the Big Data Opportunity in Healthcare

    ClearDATA

    The demand for better, actionable, data has escalated as the industry shifts to a value-based model where financial success is now linked to patient outcomes. This has incentivized researchers to mine data and discover which treatments are most effective and identify patterns in hospital readmissions, allowing for better reimbursements. By harnessing this big data, the healthcare, life sciences, and pharmaceutical industries stand to greatly benefit.

    Taking full advantage of big data can result in additional benefits such as:

  • Electronic Signatures for Healthcare

    e-SignLive

    The trend to digitize and transform healthcare is accelerating. Healthcare professionals, administrators and providers agree: it is time to transition from paper to digital. As a result of moving paperless, the traditional forms for signing documents have changed. These now require electronic signatures.

    The US Federal ESIGN law defines an electronic signature as “an electronic sound, symbol, or process attached to, or associated with, a contract or other record and adopted by a person with the intent to sign a record.”

  • Case Study - Baylor College of Medicine: Taking Research and Discovery to the Cloud

    Net App

    The Challenge

    To conduct even more groundbreaking research and publish results faster, Baylor College must enable its faculty and students to concentrate on their research without distractions. However, procuring IT infrastructure for research projects is an expensive and lengthy task.

    Where does Baylor College turn?

    The Resolve

    To the cloud – specifically, private discovery cloud infrastructure.

  • Driving True Patient Engagement Beyond The Basic Patient Portal

    InterSystems

    Some healthcare organizations have a patient portal in place simply to meet meaningful use requirements. Others, however, are taking a more strategic approach to patient engagement. In “Driving True Patient Engagement: Beyond the Basic Patient Portal”, P. Nelson Le, MD, senior clinical advisor at InterSystems, explains how the next generation of portal technology, untethered from individual EHRs, can be part of a robust patient engagement initiative that transforms patient behavior and improves patient/clinician collaboration.

  • Cloud Computing—Lowering Cost and Complexity Barriers in the Healthcare Industry

    Net App

    IT has been tasked to deliver fast, reliable, and secure access to critical information while handling the growing volumes of clinical notes, images, diagnostics, scheduling, and billing, all while adhering to HIPAA and HiTech mandates.

    How can healthcare organizations acquire the necessary hardware and software to envelope this vast chasm of medical data while remaining compliant and in budget?

  • E-book: Defending the BYOD Healthcare Landscape: Strategies for Safeguarding Patient Data

    tiger text

    When it comes to bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, enterprises face an inherent conflict between leveraging the potential benefits of flexibility, productivity, and individual choice offered by mobile devices, while maintaining centralized oversight and addressing security and privacy concerns.

    Many issues still stand in the way of the advancement of BYOD implementation. However, there are forward-looking enterprises that are loosening restrictions while addressing data security and privacy. Additional areas of focus for BYOD implementation are:

  • Focus on Technology: Preparing your practice for ICD-10

    The October 1st ICD-10 deadline is approaching. Is your medical practice ready?

    Healthcare organizations that fail testament to ICD-10 IT requirements will risk reimbursement delays, increased claim rejections, and reduced reimbursement due to incorrect or incomplete documentation.

  • E-book: To The Cloud! A New Age in Healthcare IT

    Carpathia

    As more and more healthcare organizations are making the shift to the cloud, data security, successful implementation, and patient privacy have become top-of-mind concerns.

    With the vast amounts of data housed in healthcare organizations, it is vital to the security of the information and the success of the implementation that certain precautions are taken. Cloud computing allows for analysis of these large data sets, enabling us to build better outcomes and better diagnoses.

  • E-book: The Healthcare Providers’ Guide to Revenue Cycle Management: Vital Forward-Thinking Investments

    ZirMED

    As healthcare and IT merge into a cohesive entity, providers look towards technological innovation to find the next “cure” in fighting disease, advancing quality of care, and still meeting the financial bottom line.

    With recent legislation from HIPAA, ICD-10 and Meaningful Use, hospitals are now legally obligated to meet lofty (and expensive) standards for their healthcare information technology (HIT) hardware and software. How do these organizations comply with these mandates without breaking the bank?
