The estimated annual cost of Medicare hospital readmissions is $26 billion, and $17 billion of that is considered avoidable*. Effective communication, care team collaboration, and patient follow-up are key in reducing readmissions and avoiding costly penalties.
Join our Salesforce panel as we discuss patient relationship management, and how Salesforce Health Cloud can help organizations deliver better patient care after discharge from acute care facilities.
*According to data from the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA)
The NHS Five Year Forward View requires £20bn - £30bn cost improvements by 2020. Patient care requires continuous improvements to keep pace with increasing expectations on services. This calls for Trusts to improve processes, while reducing actual delivery costs.
Trusts need to understand the positive financial impact of an Outpatient Process Redesign. Winscribe’s healthcare process experts Chris Rodwell and Robin Kilner show how this can be achieved. The purpose of the redesign is to identify and write an action plan to reduce the costs of supporting outpatients by a minimum of £1m per annum for a small to medium trust. More for larger trusts.
Cost savings can be made as a result of:-
•Better document creation – getting it down to seconds per appointment for the clinician
•Reducing costs of administration for discharge / clinic letter production – reductions of 50 – 60% possible
•Improve document sharing (time taken) and document TAT – reduces admin further
•Accuracy – right first time
•Reduced cost per letter - reductions of 50 – 60% possible
This webinar is to share this approach with NHS Finance Managers and Directors. We will examine actual case studies and show the savings that can be made, in the current financial year and over a 5 year plan. Winscribe’s healthcare process experts Chris Rodwell and Robin Kilner show how this can be achieved.
IBM: Reducing Risk and ComplexityRead more >
The large volumes of data being stored as well as the multiple siloes, users and applications using the data, means that organizations are constantly under threat of a data breach.
Certes Networks, will discuss how, despite the numerous threats and vulnerabilities currently faced by organizations, there are new ground-breaking cloud-friendly segmentation and application isolation techniques that can combat these threats, allowing organizations to safely use the cloud, keep their networks secure, and reduce their attack surface.
Join us on Tuesday, July 15th for a Webinar with Larry Whiteside, Chief Information Security Officer for LCRA, as he discusses Patching and Compliance: A CISO's perspective to reducing risk.
Over the past few years security has gotten caught up in the latest hype or trends related to threats. This has caused many security teams to lose focus of some basic things that can be done to mitigate new and old threats in their environment. In this Webinar we will discuss tride and true techniques to mitigate risk and help security organizations take care of some low hanging fruit.
In this webinar and solution demo, learn how Markerstudy, an Insurance company, used Zoomdata’s fast visual analytics and Cloudera’s advanced Hadoop technologies to:
• Create a scalable, enterprise-grade data hub—that measurably improved business performance—in a matter of months
• Interactively and visually analyze hundreds of millions of transactions in seconds—instead of waiting overnight for static reports based on a 5% data sample
•Deliver important new customer insights in real time through powerful yet easy-to-use visual analytics
There is a huge imbalance between the time and effort it takes a security manager to find and close attack vectors, versus the time it takes an attacker to exploit a security gap. A security team may need weeks to scan a network and fix vulnerabilities, while attacks can be successful in minutes. Time is of the essence, and risk analytics convert security data into actionable intelligence fast.
In this presentation, recorded at InfoSecurity Europe 2014, Skybox Security CEO and Founder Gidi Cohen explores the popular approaches for IT security management and why common methodologies are no longer effective at reducing the attack surface. He also reviews practical ways to leverage security data and risk analytics tools to shrink the attack surface every day.
We all know that the contact center agent plays a critical role in service delivery and ensuring customer satisfaction. The individuals on the front line must be expert ambassadors of our brand who can effectively navigate a customer’s needs while delivering a consistent experience across channels and interactions. We also know that our customers are becoming more tech-savvy with an increasing reliance on their connection to devices and a growing demand for consistent and accessible service.
All of this means that the role of a contact center agent is more complex than ever before and, if ill-prepared, it’s taking a toll on agent turnover, customer satisfaction, and ultimately, the reputations of many organizations.
Attend this webinar to learn:
What ICMI’s research uncovered on the primary causes of agent attrition and job dissatisfaction and tips and ideas to significantly reduce these in your contact center.
How to identify the customer information that is most important to your agents during a customer contact and tips for implementing the tools, processes, and training to ensure that they can effectively maximize their available resources.

The microservices software architecture is the industry’s latest answer to providing customers with a seamless, high quality omnichannel experience. Thirty percent of companies are already delivering software via microservices, and 75% see them as being “very important” or “critical” to the future of their businesses.
Designed to make software more “transportable” across multiple devices and platforms—including web, mobile, and wearables—this approach promises to deliver an optimal customer experience regardless of how, when, or where a customer chooses to engage with a business.
However with this proliferation of platforms and devices, understanding the customer experience becomes more difficult. Highly interconnected and interactive, microservices architectures require a new level of customer centricity to alleviate complexity, reduce support costs, and ensure a high quality end user experience.
Listen to leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and CA Technologies to learn:
- What new challenges IT will encounter in deploying, monitoring, and managing microservices in omnichannel environments
- How to reduce complexity and understand the impact of change when monitoring applications using microservices architectures
- How to monitor your entire omnichannel stack with a single application performance management (APM) solution.

Energy and Sustainability Management in the Food and Beverage environment, reducing your Operating Costs, to Boost your Profit Margins.
Compared to other industries, the Food and Beverage (F&B) industry leads the way in terms of the development and deployment of sustainability programmes. F&B manufacturers have improved the efficiency of their facilities, invested in renewable energy, and managed the sustainability of their supply chains in order to lower the impact on the environment. The F&B industry has met the requirements of global and local legislation, and leads all sectors in sustainability disclosure.
However, with persistent global resource shortages and increasing energy and commodity prices, tougher governmental regulations will be enforced and customers will demand increased transparency of F&B operations. It is estimated that 10% of the world’s emissions come from manufacturing, and that a 26% improvement potential exists for manufacturing firms worldwide.
This Webinar, recommends an integrated Sustainability and Energy Management programme resulting in reduced costs, increased profitability, lower carbon emissions, mitigated risk and improved corporate image for F&B organisations.

If your intuitive response to the risk of targeted attacks is to run and get some Advanced Threat
Protection, do yourself a favour and take a step back. The reality is that, while the number of advanced
attacks has been increasing, the vast majority of cases still use fairly simple techniques and exploit
publically known vulnerabilities that can be solved by regular patching or other mitigation actions.
In this webinar we will talk about how you should use vulnerability intelligence to reduce the attack
surface for hackers and strengthen resilience before you think of implementing ATP solutions.
