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

Keeping up with the new pace of change requires building agility into your business to adapt to change faster, while carefully overseeing your investments. The integrated solution of CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally) helps you effectively balance agility and governance by connecting the work of agile teams to your enterprise portfolio. Supporting an evolutionary approach to adopting agile, the solution lets you continue using traditional methods, while growing agile adoption to deliver on portfolio investments faster—with higher quality and predictable business results. A holistic view across all projects helps portfolio managers optimize budgets and resources for maximum return on investment.
Modern solutions like CA PPM continue to raise the bar above last-generation IT demand management tools, continuously providing new features to ease the burden of the PMO, the financial manager, the resource manager and the product manager.
In the last few years, new vendors looking to exploit the large and increasingly influential project and portfolio management (PPM) market have developed modules that “snap” into their SaaS platforms. These vendors claim their tools are easy to install, easy to manage and save customers money. It sounds too good to be true. And for most organizations, it is.
Carefully consider whether you need a PPM solution that is only capable of providing low-level functionality for the project manager, or if your organization could benefit from PPM technology that provides 360-degree optics across your organization, delivers actionable business intelligence and enables extensive modeling and forecasting capabilities to make data-driven business decisions.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.

As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.
