Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs. Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

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.

By automating tests on blood pressure, BMI and more, a 6,000 patient practice saves 27 . hours a week of staff time, or £12,000 a year in labour costs. Instead of routine measurements and questionnaires being taken in a consultation with a GP or nurse, a patient can use the SurgeryPod to take tests as they wish Using information on the cost of general practice from the NHS Information Centre and private studies on this technology, we've created a potential cost saving estimate.

Occupational Health Kiosks Could Reduce Absence Costs By £340,000 a Year: Employees use a self-service kiosk to test for potentially absence-causing health issues in a 15-20 minute occupational health check, without assistance from occupational health services. Using information from the CIPD on employee absence in the UK, and reports from current users, we believe we can reduce the overall cost of absence by 14% a year.

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.

There is a problem in the healthcare market today. For improved quality of care, increased efficiencies and to meet Meaningful Use requirements, providers of healthcare services (health systems, hospitals, clinics, doctors) want to share health information with one another electronically. Because these providers operate in heterogeneous technology and data environments, it is challenging to physically connect their systems and disparate representations of patients, providers, organizations, and locations.

Introduction and overview eHealth offers a potent means for health services in EMEA, and worldwide, to tackle the daunting challenges of the 21st century. Ageing populations, long-term management of chronic illnesses, escalating costs1, changing patterns of disease, and a worldwide shortage of healthcare workers are all driving the need for health information and communication technology (ICT) to improve healthcare administration and delivery. For future sustainability, the healthcare system demands efficient and affordable access to finite healthcare resources, improving care for all and reducing healthcare inequalities. To achieve its potential, eHealth must facilitate the secure movement of patient data out of system silos and transform it into intelligence for improved patient administration and enablement of patient-centred, coordinated care.

A fundamental issue facing healthcare worldwide is tying fragmented information and data silos together to increase intelligence. This truth is self-evident to healthcare leaders worldwide. The costs of providing healthcare are increasing at an unsustainable rate. Healthcare systems everywhere are under enormous pressure to improve care quality while operating with reduced budgets. The increased competition in healthcare requires health information exchange solutions that include master indexes at the core to provide an improved understanding of patients, physicians, business partners and the relationships between them.

A master person index1 (MPI) that links information about an individual across disparate source systems to create a single, accurate, real-time virtual patient record is widely accepted as a requirement for successful eHealth initiatives. IBM's industry-leading MPI, IBM® Initiate® Patient®, accurately identifies and links same patient records across disparate systems. IBM® Initiate® Provider®, also an MPI, relies on the same core technology to support a single accurate view of providers. Together these solutions can create a connected view of the patient and their care team to help coordinate care and facilitate population health.

More than ever before, enterprises are under pressure to protect private data. Part of the pressure comes from the chilling examples of companies who failed to protect private data and then paid a high price in regulatory fines, disaffected customers, lost business, and damaged brands. Part of the pressure comes from knowing just how frequently data breaches occur. In a recent survey of email decision makers at large U.S. companies, 34% reported that their business had been affected by the leak of sensitive or embarrassing information in the past year, 33% had been affected by the improper exposure or theft of customer information, and 28% had been affected by the improper exposure or theft of intellectual property. Thefts are common. Leaks are common. Enterprises, even cautious ones, are plainly at risk. Proofpoint Encryption can help keep private data in email secure.

The very best anti-spam solutions today deliver 95% effectiveness. Unfortunately, that's not good enough. A border-line attack that gets through a 5% gap in defenses could cost your organization millions of dollars in terms of business lost, exposure to privacy threats, and brand loyalty. This white paper discusses the ongoing evolution of spam threats and the technology needed to close that remaining 5% gap in defenses. To defeat spam, enterprises need a holistic approach rather than an uncoordinated collection of features and filters. By systematically tying features together through real-time machine learning and analysis, enterprises can increase the effectiveness of their spam defenses to nearly 100%.

It is universally agreed that innovation must be the driving force behind the reconfiguration and evolution of the NHS. Innovation and innovative thinking, however, take many forms, and it is important that the pursuit of innovation does not focus solely on that which is new and high tech. In fact, it is often simple and accessible solutions - solutions which have been proven successful in practice - that provide an answer when a new challenge presents itself. Shifting delivery of services from hospitals to community settings is one of the biggest challenges that has faced the NHS in living memory, and one that will require no small measure of innovative thinking to overcome. The answer, however, will not be found in high tech IT systems, or process management, or any new medical gadgets - these are a given in such a complex sector. In its simplest form, the problem is about being able to provide a suitable clinical environment in a local setting, quickly, safely and cost-effectively. This video demonstrates the ways in which mobile healthcare facilities can be used to tackle the issues facing the modern NHS, and deliver the accessible and affordable innovation that NHS organisations need in this era of cost-saving and efficiency.
