The shift to value-based reimbursement (VBR) entails more financial risk for providers. Successful management of the transition to VBR can only be achieved when healthcare organizations are clinically and financially integrated to ensure tight care coordination and efficient resource utilization. That level of integration requires the aid of a robust IT infrastructure to support the enterprise. This whitepaper offers the opportunity to learn about new tools for healthcare providers to manage financial challenges associated with value-based reimbursement
Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."

The internet has grown rapidly from a random collection of mainly academic networks and military control and routing protocols into a global, integrated and sophisticated commercial utility. No longer simply an 'Information Superhighway', it has extended to embrace voice telephony, video and mobile communications as part of a converged network. Connection options and services have expanded, with opportunities for internet service providers (ISPs) to add value beyond simply forwarding bit and bytes.
Simple voicemail has evolved into complex integrated messaging platforms and the generic black handset has been replaced by a plethora of devices. Service providers can become critical partners for companies looking to ensure availability of their voice network.
It is very clear that datacenter managers need, in addition to server virtualization, the virtualization, pooling, and management of all the other resources that interoperate with their VMs. They require virtualized network interconnects and storage. They also need the tools to manage and automate these converged IT assets as an integrated datacenter system.
This more agile system is the key to enabling the shift to a cloud-based infrastructure IT delivery model. Solution providers like HP are now addressing the need for more optimized and agile IT solutions. They are delivering virtualized storage, virtual application network (VAN) infrastructure, and the orchestration software to manage and automate all these ingredients as a single system. Read this whitepaper to learn more.
Integrated Workplace Management System Systems (IWMS) is gaining industry momentum, in large part, because of the increasing focus on the importance of optimized, unified management of all assets across a complex enterprise. And that certainly includes real estate, facilities, and related assets that have historically been managed in isolated domains. In this study, leading technology analyst Gartner Inc. assesses the IWMS market to determine how the field is changing, who the leading software providers are, and how IWMS solutions have evolved in new directions to better fulfill emerging demand.
