The overall supply chain is becoming increasingly complex. When running smoothly, this global system lowers costs and improves quality, but as more moving parts are introduced the potential for inefficiency increases.
Greater visibility is key to preventing disruptions and gaps in the supply chain - and location data is the key to enhancing visibility.
By reading this eBook, you will discover:
How location intelligence can help identify areas that are ripe for optimization
How real-time data can provide useful insights on supply chain health and help identify waste in your processes

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.

The traditional payer business model is fast becoming obsolete. Blues organizations that cling to the status quo or business as usual risk jeopardizing their reputations and business, because people are more than patients.
Increasingly, employers are driving the growing demand for more solutions to engage customers. In response, healthcare incumbents and new entrants are building solutions to address rising costs and meet consumers’ demands for personalization, price transparency, access, and seamless, simple experiences.
Proactive engagement can help your members lead healthier lives while improving outcomes for payers and other players. With 5% of Americans consuming 50% of healthcare costs, identifying and engaging high-risk, high-cost customer segments is essential to sustainability.

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
With companies and executives being held accountable for incidents in the workplace, the issue of workers’ health and safety has become a persistent concern for organizations around the world. And with varying standards across borders, confusion about what companies need to do is rampant.
This need for an international consensus standard on workplace health and safety prompted the proposal of ISO 45001 in 2013.
The standard, passed in March 2018, now serves as the international guide on occupational health and safety (OH&S) and outlines relevant methods and benchmarks.
With insight from expert leadership, this whitepaper gives you the complete guide on how to work with the new standard. You'll learn:
• Why ISO 45001 matters and its impact upon your business
• The benefits and pathway to becoming certified
• Important considerations for the contractor selection process
In the beginning of 2019, a National Safety Council (NSC) study revealed that for the first time in US recorded history, the odds of dying from an opioid overdose (1:96) surpassed those of dying in an auto accident (1:103).
As a result, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of preventable injury deaths in the United States.
The growing trend of opioid-related workplace incidents is a major concern for supply chains across the world. In fact, a recent study by Massachusetts Department of Public Health shows higher opioid overdose incidents occurring in industries that have a higher chance of worker-related injury. Among these, construction and manufacturing are the two industries most heavily affected.
This whitepaper discusses tips for dealing with the opioid epidemic and gives clarity around OSHA drug testing regulations.
Right now, consumers are driving two seemingly opposing trends: Accenture calls the first trend ‘From Me to We.’ As people grasp the importance of sustainable living, they are shifting from a purely selfish focus (give me what I want) towards actively pushing brands to become more responsible for their global footprint and the health of our planet (support the ideals we believe in).1

live happier, healthier lives. However, healthcare facilities must
also keep patients and staff safe within those environments
of healing — and as healthcare assaults continue to rise,
this task is becoming more difficult every year.
Spend-related regulatory violations come in the form of different types of payments or gifts, including those to sanctioned organizations or people; debarred organizations or people; organizations or people on an export control list; foreign officials or government-owned entities; politically-exposed people; and healthcare professionals or organizations.
How do you know if you have these violations hiding in your organization's expenses, contracts, or invoices?
It’s not easy to weed them out, and if you don’t have an automated, systematic approach, doing so is prohibitively time consuming.
"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.”
Download this white paper for five best practices to mitigate threat and attacks that can put lives, patient trust and the growth of the healthcare organization at risk.

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs.
But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

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.
