Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h

Ignorance is no excuse.
At least that’s what Uncle Sam will tell you if you get
audited. Such lack of apparent sympathy can seem
especially frustrating because as a home health care
organization (HHC), you face an incredibly challenging
compliance landscape. It can be tricky and confusing to
navigate a seemingly endless array of regulations.
But relax. We’ve got your back. Here’s what you need
to know to survive an audit.
"Only 51% of device makers follow guidance from the FDA to mitigate or reduce inherent security risks. See how hospitals can harness the benefits of connected medical devices to achieve operational efficiencies, provide better patient care and reduce the overall risk to patient safety. Watch this on-demand webinar to discover: • Emerging issues and trends that are risky to healthcare IT systems and can directly affect patient safety, violate their trust and impact revenue
• Best practices for shoring up network security blind spots with real-time asset inventory, network authentication and automated enforcement controls
• Why real-time endpoint visibility is the key to achieving an effective and proactive cybersecurity strategy"
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”

To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
The key benefit of creating a case management methodology is to multiply its effectiveness by replicating it across the organization's patient-facing departments, practices and functions. In this way, your organization can reduce costs, increase quality and streamline its operations.
Under risk adjustment, health plans with a lower average risk score make payments into the system or miss out on revenue opportunities, while plans with relatively high average risk scores receive payments. So it’s critical for a plan to get this analysis right – or forfeit revenue it deserves.
With advanced analytics and machine learning, health care organizations can be more timely and confident in their risk adjustment programs, more effectively managing the cost of care and building a stable annual financial portfolio.
With the combination of electronic health records, rich repositories of claims data, medical device outputs, laboratory and prescription systems, real-world data and the data mined from other information technology systems, the health and life sciences ecosystem can now gain new perspective.

ealthcare workers understand the complexity of fighting infections better than most. As medications are developed, germs evolve and become resistant to those medications. Over time, germs become incredibly complex and difficult to treat as they continue to evolve and adapt.
Unfortunately, computer viruses seem to be following a similar pattern—and the healthcare industry is struggling to catch up.
Healthcare accounts for 21% of all cybersecurity breaches, making it the most affected business sector in the U.S. economy.
