“A happy worker is a productive worker.” It’s a core
belief that has driven Mrs. G’s Services for almost 20
years. A privately owned home health care agency,
Mrs. G’s has about 450 workers and three offices
that service the New York metropolitan area. Priding
itself on employing passionate people and providing
compassionate care, the organization’s primary mission
is to provide comprehensive and quality service.
Problem was, not all of the agency’s workers were happy. From caregivers to fulltime
employees, people throughout Mrs. G’s were frustrated by the agency’s payroll
solution. It wasn’t just that the payroll software was insufficient and sometimes
downright ineffective. It wasn’t just that it persistently failed to meet the needs of
agency management and the company’s caregivers. It was that a routine function —
like payroll! — was violating the company’s core belief and making it more difficult for
Mrs. G’s to achieve its mission.

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.
A rehab program is only as good as its staff. Acquiring, retaining and keeping rehab talent engaged is critical for
program effectiveness. Staffing issues can burden providers with additional costs and make it hard for them to
deliver a consistently high quality of care, but there are key strategies to help relieve the staffing burden.
The medical industry is facing a growing talent shortage. Recent estimates predict that America will be short of
more than 130,000 doctors by 2025.1 Specialized departments will suffer especially high shortage rates.
If healthcare providers want to minimize the impact of this shortage, they must optimize their recruitment and
retention practices. This guide details the best strategies for making that happen.

Value-based care is the predominant model for enabling the healthcare industry to control costs and deliver better information to consumers. The basic idea is that reimbursements are based on the quality of the outcome of a procedure, episode of care, use of a device or therapy. Under this model, life sciences companies are rewarded for improving health outcomes and/or reducing the costs to achieve those outcomes. It requires life sciences companies to rethink many of their processes, from R&D through the commercial phase. Navigating those momentous shifts requires that life sciences companies embrace a range of digital technologies which will enable a holistic approach to value-based care. This white paper will examine the drive for value-based care, its impact on life sciences companies and how technology platforms can address the challenges the industry is facing.
Cost reduction is a key criteria that executives often use when choosing initiatives to focus on. They are the ones that have the greatest potential to impact an organization's bottom line. Across life science organizations, a critical area for cost containment is training management.
This paper summarizes the results of a quantitative benchmarking survey to over 200 Life Science organizations. The study identifies the key compliance and performance improvement training topics they had addressed in 2011 along with key issues for 2012.
SOPs are critical to efficient manufacturing operations, quality control, and regulatory compliance.

The quality of a customer care strategy can make
or break a company. Simply resolving a customer
service issue or complaint is no longer enough—

efort and frustraton. And do all of this while
reducing the ever increasing cost and complexity

With the right EHR in place, participation in health care quality management programs not only helps you provide great care to your patients, but can also help increase your bottom line. However, the rewards are only worth seeking if the cost—in time and money—of collecting and reporting data to these quality programs doesn't outrun the potential gain. This is where your EHR and the services provided by your EHR vendor can make a significant difference.
