Learn how IBM Watson Health clinical application advisors helped Floyd Health Care System take full advantage of the platform’s many benefits.
As part of its journey toward population health management, Floyd wanted to optimize the way it used the IBM® Phytel® solution from IBM Watson Health™ and take advantage of its analytical tools.
With help from an IBM Watson Health clinical application advisor, Floyd expanded its IBM solutions and used their unique capabilities to progress toward a more robust population healthcare model by adding care coordination activities and improving key process measures.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are necessary, but were not designed to anchor population health management (PHM). This is partly because they lack semantic interoperability, which is the ability of disparate information systems to share data and enable communications among users in a meaningful way.
This paper explains how an approach that includes a care collaboration platform can manage population health by aggregating and normalizing the necessary data.
Population health initiatives are helping to lower healthcare costs and improve quality. As a result, 85% of hospitals reported strong or total commitment to population health. This year, hospital readmissions should be a top priority.
Most population health management strategies include initiatives to improve clinical outcomes and decrease the cost of care. Read this one-page interview with Dr. Tina Moen, Deputy Chief Health Officer at IBM Watson Health, as she shares the benefits and insights of collaborative medication management, including incorporating pharmacists in population health strategies.
For healthcare organizations, talent shortages mean lost revenue from having to cancel procedures and turn away patients. And with the aging population and increased competition for great healthcare talent, organizations like yours need a new, flexible workforce solution. That solution is Total Talent Acquisition (TTA).
TTA can break down hiring silos by unifying your organization’s efforts in acquiring all types of workers, whether they’re full-time staff, consultants, freelance contractors, temporary staff or project-based workers. It can rein in costs, help assess your current and future talent needs, and create a better experience for candidates and, most importantly, patients.
We created this guide to help you learn more about Total Talent and to assess how your organization can benefit from it. Download it to learn:

Our active and actively aging population is the dichotomy
fueling significant growth for implantable medical
devices. Innovations focused on mobility, engagement and
quality of life are directly targeting this growing population.
The implantable medical device industry is poised to capitalize on these unique needs, while simultaneously
meeting unprecedented cost pressures. It is time for manufacturers to seek expertise in inventory management
and logistics for greater visibility, control and profitability.
For implantable medical device manufacturers to be as active and healthy as the patients they serve, their
future depends on the ability to differentiate products — not only by price, but through cost, service and
documented outcomes. New trends in personal health tracking keep patients moving, and data collection
will similarly improve the health of your business.
To address the volume, velocity, and variety of data necessary for population health management, healthcare organizations need a big data solution that can integrate with other technologies to optimize care management, care coordination, risk identification and stratification and patient engagement. Read this whitepaper and discover how to build a data infrastructure using the right combination of data sources, a “data lake” framework with massively parallel computing that expedites the answering of queries and the generation of reports to support care teams, analytic tools that identify care gaps and rising risk, predictive modeling, and effective screening mechanisms that quickly find relevant data. In addition to learning about these crucial tools for making your organization’s data infrastructure robust, scalable, and flexible, get valuable information about big data developments such as natural language processing and geographical information systems. Such tools can provide insig
Strong patient engagement leads to improved population health, a better experience of care, and lower healthcare costs. Even so, few healthcare organizations have a well-defined patient engagement strategy, according to research by IBM Watson Health. Read this whitepaper and learn why healthcare organizations should create a comprehensive patient engagement strategy, what each component of such a strategy entails and how to take the steps required to build an effective patient engagement program. From patient portals, telemedicine, and mobile health, to data sharing, automation tools and cognitive computing, you’ll gain the ability to leverage valuable tools for increasing patients’ involvement in their own health outcomes.
The NHS is currently evolving to meet the needs of an ageing population. This means that not only is the delivery of clinical care more challenging in the acute hospital set- ting but it increasingly relies on enhanced information access in the primary care, mental health and community environments too.

The days are gone when health issues would be treated
clinically in isolation from the many other factors that affect
the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Today,
the rising costs of health care, an aging population and
increasingly complex chronic health problems are driving
greater focus and attention on population health — the health
outcomes of a group of individuals within a population.
Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health
