Patients using HomePods to measure vital signs and communicate with carers have better outcomes and fewer hospital visits, our research suggests. A pilot project saw a 90% reduction in length of stay and hospital admissions, a 40% drop in home visits from the GP and A&E visits reduced by half. This paper illustrates how in-home monitoring can save a PCT or GP consortium over £180,000 a year just by improving the care of a small section of COPD patients.

North American Healthcare Provider turns to IBM® SPSS® Statistics to boost clinic performance and speed patient services All around the globe, nations are contending with medical costs that are rising faster than inflation and patients who are frustrated by long waits for appointments. One of the newest strategies for correcting these and other systemic ailments is evidence-based medicine. The highly touted approach aims to apply the best available scientific evidence to medical decision-making to ensure the best treatment outcomes. In 2008, a leading for-profit clinical healthcare provider decided to bring a rigorous, evidence-based approach to its own operations. "It's the old adage, what gets measured, gets done," says the company's director of clinical intelligence. Starting with three of its strategic rehabilitation clinics, the healthcare company rolled out a statistical analysis solution based on IBM SPSS Statistics. Since then, it has seen significant business benefits, including increased customer satisfaction; improved decision-making; and increased revenue.

MedeAnalytics employs IBM® SPSS® Modeler to help prioritize providers' collection efforts Hospitals across the nation are facing a tough dilemma: a growing number of the patients they treat lack health insurance or are underinsured - but turning these patients away isn't an option. The result: more and more patients are being classified as "self-pay" and hospitals increasingly have to contend with collections headaches and budget shortfalls. "The rising uninsured and under-insured are among the top issues plaguing healthcare," researchers at Deloitte LLP noted in a recent study. "Not only does this issue impact access to care and hospitals' ability to fulfill their mission, it impacts their ability to protect margins and keep their doors open."

With the proliferation of electronic patient information, hospital administrators, compliance officers,privacy officers and information security officers are required to enforce patient privacy. Motivated by patient-citizen damages from increased healthcare privacy breaches, law-makers across the United States, Canada, and Europe have enacted new regulation protecting patient privacy and penalizing those involved. Snooping, identity theft and general inappropriate access of medical records are now explicitly prohibited. Additionally, a patient's right to know who has accessed their records has been expanded,requiring hospitals and their business associates to account and disclose for personal health information breaches. Beyond putting patients at risk, personal health information breaches are increasingly putting healthcare organizations at a significant risk of financial, and reputational harm.
