Security risks and breaches have become part of the daily landscape as companies and organizations of every size and in every vertical and industry announce that they have been compromised. In 2016 reported security breaches were up 40%, and this year is on pace to surpass that steep rise. Over the past year alone, there have been high-profile breaches in the gaming, financial services, hospitality, food service, consumer packaged goods, and retail sectors. Many of those breaches occurred due to vulnerabilities in applications and on websites. For example, this past April, the IRS announced a breach attributable to a tool designed to fetch data for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
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

n hospitality, communication is the key to customer satisfaction, helping
businesses create the ideal guest experience while driving efficiencies
that save valuable time and resources. In the quest to craft a better,
safer experience, for both guests and employees, digital communication
is playing an increasingly important role. As communications technology
continues to reshape the hospitality landscape, questions remain for
businesses striving to achieve the best customer experience possible.
Today’s hospitality professionals compete on customer experience
and this trend will define the shape and scope of contact
centers well into the next decade. To deliver the level of
seamless experiences that customers expect, contact
centers will need to harness all the advantages technology
can offer – specifically, the cloud – to create an “intelligent
cloud contact center” that utilizes machine learning and
real-time data analysis.
So, step one is to move your contact center to the cloud. ASAP.
Once you are operating a cloud contact center, the next step is to start leveraging everything this enables you to do. This is where the “Intelligent Cloud Contact Center” comes into play.”
