Red Hat CTO for global service providers, Ian Hood, and TelecomTV talk about multi edge compute capacity and the fundamental need to have a common platform to deliver future services. ‘If you are not feeling some pain, you are not driving fast enough’, says Red Hat CTO, Global Service Provider, Ian Hood. The race to 5G is definitely on, and the use cases are clear. You can talk about multi edge compute capacity and other technical issues, but the fundamental thing is to have a common platform to deliver future services. We need to get to the point where IoT Everywhere, virtualized video and all the applications that come from new 5G services are delivered seamlessly. Even blockchain has a clear future within the telco environment where the world of eSIMs, secure roaming charges and identity management can alls be based on blockchain technology.
Many hospitals are implementing patient engagement strategies to help improve care outcomes and engaging financially with patients can also yield significant benefits for patients and providers. Financial patient engagement includes educating and communicating with patients at every point in the revenue cycle – pre-service, point of service and post-service – to facilitate higher collections and help improve patient satisfaction. Because these points in the revenue cycle stretch across many departments such as patient access, financial services, call centers and third-party collection agencies, a single, integrated solution that connects all parties involved and provides comprehensive data is critical.
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
Creating competitive advantage starts with a
sound digital strategy.
In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search
for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites
to steer their decisions about where to go for care.
What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making.
Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your
doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient
rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website.
Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to
generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,”
while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational
improvements and drive new patient appointments.
Brand perception begins online, with the local online reputation of doctors, clinics and hospitals.
In late 2017, Reputation.com set out to understand how consumers use the internet to look
for healthcare services online, particularly when interacting with healthcare-related ratings
and reviews. We surveyed healthcare consumers across the U.S. in a representative range of
demographic groups for answers to some key questions:
• What are consumers and patients really looking for in online reviews?
• What ratings and review factors are most important when choosing a doctor?
• What sites are most used and trusted for this information?
Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s
decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail.

Information is becoming the currency of the 21st century, and organizations of all sizes are creating more information than ever
before. Frequently, organizations struggle with how best to balance storage requirements with available budgets. The benefits of greater storage capacity are clear: better change management and roll-back, easier archival and discovery, reliable backup and
recovery. But to continually grow on-site capacity requires unsustainable investment and introduces unnecessary risk. Prominent cloud service providers present an appealing alternative with their vast amounts of storage, offering low cost, high availability, and built-in redundancy. Riverbed’s Whitewater® family of cloud storage gateways is a drop-in replacement for existing tape- and diskbased backup targets, cuts backup costs 30-50% compared to tape and disk, and provides effective DR capability with minimal effort.

According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security.
