Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience
To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
For years, experienced data warehousing (DW) consultants and analysts have advocated the need for a well thought-out architecture for designing and implementing large-scale DW environments. Since the creation of these DW architectures, there have been many technological advances making implementation faster, more scalable and better performing. This whitepaper explores these new advances and discusses how they have affected the development of DW environments.

Video conferencing has long been thought of as the technology for the other half, something to be used by the Fortune 500 companies and executives in corner offices, the ones handling mergers and acquisitions and the like—not something that the average business could afford or make use of. In the last few years, however, a series of technological advances have changed that notion, making video conferencing not only a viable technology for businesses of all sizes but a necessity.

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
We have conditioned patients not only to expect opioids for pain relief, but to utilize more and more of them, and the addiction is both psychological and physical. To remedy the situation, a lot of policies and practices and behaviors must change around how the health care system approaches pain. But we do not yet have the data and
analytics we need to determine what specifically to do at the patient level or the policy level. Download this whitepaper to learn more about the resources available and how we can fix this issue.

Globalization has presented business leaders with numerous opportunities and challenges to become more competitive and innovative and to drive more value. These opportunities and challenges seem to increase in number and complexity every year whether it is the challenge of scaling limited human and technological resources, sourcing from low-cost countries halfway around the world, or going to market with the latest product innovations.
Today’s IT leaders don’t have the time nor the resources to effectively respond to the needs of their ever-demanding workforce. It’s time for CIOs to stop running the IT department and start transforming the business; only through transforming the way in which they deploy and service the workforce can CIOs accomplish this paramount task.
Organizations must now embrace a future that improves the workforce experience in order to offload cumbersome and time-intensive tasks. With IT becoming more integrated and a strategic partner to the lines of business (LOBs), offloading and embracing new technologies that enable employee experience is a logical step.
