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
Research has demonstrated enhanced technology can improve communication between patients, families and care providers, improve motivation, and has the potential to effect better outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction. Additionally, better technology also makes the workplace more appealing to employees.
With the investment and complexity involved, how can health systems utilize technology in the most efficient and effective ways to drive business results?

IT faces the challenge of consolidating, maintaining, and understanding complex configuration data and often this data is found in many different repositories. But there’s a better way to solve these challenges. The configuration management database (CMDB) consolidates disparate IT management systems into a single system of action. This ipaper provides you with the fundamentals to help ensure your configuration data management project with CMDB is a success.
The combination of the SAP HANA platform and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory means that enterprises now have new ways to approach data tiering and management. Downtime can be significantly reduced because SAP HANA doesn’t have to reload data back into main memory after a server reboot, and more data can remain in the “hot” tier of main memory, which increases the amount of data that can be analyzed at a time. See this new infographic for a quick summary.
Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory also benefits SAP HANA by providing a higher memory density than DRAM, in addition to being byte-addressable. Up to three terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory is available per CPU socket on systems configured with future Intel® Xeon® Gold processors and future Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, which means that an eight-socket server can contain up to 24 terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory.
You can migrate live VMs between Intel processor-based servers but migration in a mixed CPU environment requires downtime and administrative hassle
A study commissioned by Intel Corp.
One of the greatest advantages of adopting a adopting a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment is being able to easily migrate the virtual machines that run your critical business applications—within the data center, across data centers, and between clouds. Routine hardware maintenance, data center expansion, server hardware upgrades, VM consolidation, and other events all require your IT staff to migrate VMs. For years, one powerful tool in your arsenal has been VMware vSphere® vMotion®, which can live migrate VMs from one host to another with zero
downtime, provided the servers share the same underlying architecture. The EVC (Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) feature of vMotion makes it possible to live migrate virtual machines even between different generations of CPUs within a given architecture.

In this case study, a large enterprise with an increasing amount
of off-site work from both work-related travel and a fast-growing
remote workforce, is faced with a unique challenge to ensure
their data security is scalable and impenetrable. Their data access
policies rely on physical access management provided at the
company offices and do not always provide off-site employees
with the ability to complete work-critical tasks. Legacy security
solutions only add burden to productivity, sometimes causing
employees to ignore security protocols in order to simply
complete their work. Upon evaluating security vendors for a
frictionless solution, they selected BehavioSec for its enterprise-grade capabilities with on-premise deployment and integration
with existing legacy risk management systems.

authentication service provider to keep up with innovation at
competitive Fintech companies. The new provider developed a
mobile authentication app to maintain a high degree of mobile
security without losing customers to UX-focused Fintech
companies. As peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions grew rapidly,
so did the false rejections and need for manual review. In
evaluating security vendors for a more cohesive and frictionless

Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.
While NFV remains both technically and business relevant today, many communications service providers (CoSPs) have found implementation very complex. NFV implementation will require further evolution in order to fully address operational and business requirements. This white paper reviews factors currently driving the network virtualization evolution and examines the impact of adopting an innovative model based on software and hardware disaggregation.
5G services will place greater demands on the network in terms of peak data rates, connection density, and more. Learn how CoSPs are getting ready for 5G and how Intel® architecture is helping accelerate network transformation.
"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
