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.

The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As
mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN)
must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet
of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging
transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets
are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and
private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the
network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high
latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and
overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the
office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration

Data and analytics have become an indispensable part of gaining and keeping a competitive edge. But many legacy data warehouses introduce a new challenge for organizations trying to manage large data sets: only a fraction of their data is ever made available for analysis. We call this the “dark data” problem: companies know there is value in the data they collected, but their existing data warehouse is too complex, too slow, and just too expensive to use. A modern data warehouse is designed to support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling organizations to derive deeper business insights.
Key elements of a modern data warehouse:
• Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources
• Federated q

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety
and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of
the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because
of sample identification errors.1 There is a strong and growing body of evidence within
medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient
bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s
National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) for 2010 advocate the use of two patient-specific
identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from
a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
Producing specimen labels at the patient bedside and encoding patient identification in
a barcode satisfies both The Joint Commission’s NPSG and Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. T
