Using LEAN Six Sigma techniques, Central Sterile Processing and Materials Management leaders at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) identified specialty bed management as an area ripe for improvement.

They soon realized they were getting better—but at the wrong thing. They still weren’t achieving the desired results. Read this case study to learn how Peninsula Regional Medical Center implemented STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Real Time Locating System (RTLS) and uses real-time location to improve specialty bed management, dramatically reducing rental costs.

Collaboration across the healthcare team has always been important. What’s different today? You can collaborate over video anywhere anytime to education, delivery care or get things done! Education, It’s a good thing, right? But education to prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations is a great thing. Patients with chronic disease may find themselves in the hospital on Monday, released to go home a few days later, just to find themselves back in the Emergency room the following Monday creating an expensive cycle of declining health. Collaborative video education is breaking this cycle helping healthcare teams and patients better manage disease through community and home based education.

VoIP is rapidly becoming the standard for voice communications in business, government, education, government and healthcare. It offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, teleconferencing and other advanced features. The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges like the need to install new equipment in the MDF and the IDFs dispersed throughout your organization's network/telecom wiring closets. Typical closet designs can't handle the increased wattage and heat output of the PoE switches used to power IP phones. In this white paper you'll learn: • The basics of VoIP migration and implementation • What issues to consider when upgrading network/telecom wiring closets for VoIP • What cost-effective solutions are available to power and protect a VoIP network wiring closet

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have. Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats. Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.

The central theme of industry wide adoption of EHRs is based on the concept of “meaningful use,” which by design is a metric that will connect all the moving parts of this complicated initiative into a system that communicates and delivers high-grade electronic healthcare services. To qualify as a “meaningful user,” eligible providers must demonstrate use of a “qualified EHR” in a “meaningful manner.” It is a lofty and worthwhile goal. This white paper examines the total cost of ownership for “meaningful” EHR adoption in a physician practice.

Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs): • Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers • Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections • Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections • One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated with intravascular air embolism • Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure. Please download the whitepaper to learn more!

When it comes to engaging employees in workplace wellness programs today, the operative phrase is quickly becoming, “Let the games begin!” After suffering decreasing engagement and fewer savings than they initially expected from their wellness programs, employers are boosting participation by incorporating gamification—the emerging field of applying game mechanics and strategies to various types of applications and programs. The end game, you might say, is lower healthcare costs, along with happier, more productive and engaged employees.
