MetroHealth to hire SVP of population health The phrase “population health” might be cliché to many working in health care today, but for The MetroHealth System, it’s a way of doing business. So much so, in fact, that the health system is hiring for the newly created position of senior vice president of population health. The idea is to find someone who can help accelerate MetroHealth’s transformation from a health system that only cares for people when they’re sick into one that keeps people healthy. This individual, who will report directly to MetroHealth CEO Dr. Akram Boutros, will develop and lead programs that will help the system find the root causes of patients’ health risks and “upstream our intervention to make the biggest impact,” according to an email from Boutros. This, of course, isn’t MetroHealth’s first foray in the population health arena. As Medicaid eligibility expanded under the Affordable Care Act — and before that, through an experimental waiver in Cuyahoga County — the health system has retooled itself to manage the health care of these challenging populations. Some of those efforts include the usual targeted outreach to high-risk patients. Other efforts include offering patients transportation and even legal assistance. The health system has also taken over the local care coordination efforts for CareSource, a nonprofit Medicaid managed care plan, and launched a Medicare accountable care organization. — Timothy MagawRead More >>

Business Intelligence is a process for increasing the competitive advantage of a business by intelligent use of available data in decision making. This results in an information flood, from which it is hard to find the relevant information to support decision-making. Therefore a systematic approach is needed for analyzing customers, competitors and suppliers and for foreseeing changes.
Some emerging technologies (ETs) are so new that they are truly just emergingâ€”for example, technologies for agile BI and analytics, data visualizations, BI on clouds or SaaS, event processing, Hadoop, Apache Spark and Shark, mashups, mobile BI, NoSQL, social media, the Internet of things, solid-state drives, and streaming data. Other ETs have been around for a few years, but are just now seeing appreciable user adoptionâ€”for example, appliances, competency centers, collaborative BI, columnar databases, data virtualization, open source, in-database analytics, in-memory databases, MDM, real-time operation, predictive analytics, and unstructured data.

press release Stuttgart, Germany – Bosch is adding a healthcare element to its flexible working culture. In particular, the supplier of technology and services is pledging to protect and support its associates’ mental health. Together with employee representatives, Bosch has drawn up a central works agreement on this issue for its German locations. The agreement is scheduled to take effect on August 1, 2015. It provides for additional preventive, rehabilitation, and reintegration measures to supplement the company health management program. The aim is to identify psychological stress at an early stage, to heighten associates’ and supervisors’ awareness of this issue, and to provide integrated support programs. The hope is that the agreement will help the issue of mental health to be dealt with more openly. And although psychological stress can be triggered by events both on and off the job, its effects often manifest themselves at the workplace. For this reason, Bosch regards the new regulations as a contribution to better work-life balance. More Press Release >>
