  • Network Managers have a tall order in IT organizations today. Typically, they are tasked with two conflicting business directives:

    1. Deliver optimal end-user experience for networked applications

    2. Reduce the operational cost of the network, or reduce the IT budget

    But the knee jerk approach of “throwing bandwidth at the problem” while potentially improving end user experience, is hardly the answer to cost management and network optimization.

    In this webinar, Chris Greer will discuss the challenges that result from the common approaches utilized today in capacity planning and, outline a new way, comprised of 4 actionable steps to optimizing the bandwidth you may already have.
  • Join us this week for a special 30-minute live session on how RingCentral integrates with Zendesk for improved workflow and increased productivity.

  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    Topics covered
    -------------------
    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach
