This IDC white paper examines the drivers behind the adoption of IoT technologies by public services organizations and why the IoT is becoming a key investment priority. Public services are comprised of a diverse set of organizations, including federal, regional and local governments and healthcare and social services providers. These all have mandates to improve the safety, health and quality of life of their constituents across a broad range of programs. This paper also provides market insights and describes examples of IoT implementations that highlight the diversity of scenarios in the public service sector. These diverse scenarios illustrate the impact IoT solutions can have across many citizen-centric services.

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.

Value-based care is the predominant model for enabling the healthcare industry to control costs and deliver better information to consumers. The basic idea is that reimbursements are based on the quality of the outcome of a procedure, episode of care, use of a device or therapy. Under this model, life sciences companies are rewarded for improving health outcomes and/or reducing the costs to achieve those outcomes. It requires life sciences companies to rethink many of their processes, from R&D through the commercial phase. Navigating those momentous shifts requires that life sciences companies embrace a range of digital technologies which will enable a holistic approach to value-based care. This white paper will examine the drive for value-based care, its impact on life sciences companies and how technology platforms can address the challenges the industry is facing.

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patient’s healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And that’s how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. It’s also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to “Improve the accuracy of patient identification,” which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.

Healthcare technologies have proven their worth for practitioners and facilities in increasing the quality of patient care while saving time and streamlining operations. In some cases, however, the benefits of these technologies are outweighed by their impact on the network, slowing network performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.Software-defined networking can be the bridge to help healthcare providers update their networks and avoid disruption. SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.

1. Meet the new healthcare consumer The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients. 2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof. 3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual practitioners and facilities. Proliferating points of presence on the web make this a challenge that requires technology. But healthcare marketers who scale online review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility. 4. Business implications Online ratings and reviews stand between everyth

Healthcare providers are starting to realize that using electronic communication, collaboration, and social networks to keep in touch with each other and with patients can improve the quality of care they provide. However, it also exposes them to risk since the information they share on these networks has to be protected in order to meet specific regulatory guidelines, like those mandated by HIPAA. The prescription for success is to consider compliant use of these networks before and while they are being used and the technology that helps achieve that goal. Read this paper to gain an understanding of: What the regulatory landscape of the healthcare industry looks like What concerns you should be aware of from a legal perspective

Executives, managers, and users will not trust data unless they understand where it came from. Enterprise metadata is the “data about data” that makes this trust possible. Unfortunately, many healthcare and life sciences organizations struggle to collect and manage metadata with their existing relational and column-family technology tools. MarkLogic’s multi-model architecture makes it easier to manage metadata, and build trust in the quality and lineage of enterprise data. Healthcare and life sciences companies are using MarkLogic’s smart metadata management capabilities to improve search and discovery, simplify regulatory compliance, deliver more accurate and reliable quality reports, and provide better customer service. This paper explains the essence and advantages of the MarkLogic approach.

42% of consumers make the internet their first stop for healthcare information, ranking the web second to actual physicians. Following this trend, healthcare marketers have increased their investment in a variety of digital advertising channels such as native, video, mobile, content and more in order to better educate and inspire healthcare consumers. But whatever digital channels healthcare marketers choose, the environment matters. Consumers make snap judgments about brands based on adjacency. Over two-thirds of your audience will feel less favorably towards a brand if its placed next to untrustworthy, offensive, or low-quality content. Fortunately for brands the flip side is also true, which is why it’s imperative that you guarantee ad placements that share digital space with premium content. With Oath’s reputation as a trusted publisher, healthcare brands can experience peace of mind knowing their consumers will make positive associations that will increase brand loyalty.

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!
