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's a big undertaking to switch EHR vendors. That's why it's important to choose a vendor who can not only meet all your needs now, but who will be a partner alongside you as those needs evolve.
Whether looking to buy your first EHR, seeking to replace your existing EHR, or consolidating EHRs to a single, integrated solution, this guide will help you in the process. Use these steps to find the best EHR for your billing, reporting, and patient care needs.
The traditional payer business model is fast becoming obsolete. Blues organizations that cling to the status quo or business as usual risk jeopardizing their reputations and business, because people are more than patients.
Increasingly, employers are driving the growing demand for more solutions to engage customers. In response, healthcare incumbents and new entrants are building solutions to address rising costs and meet consumers’ demands for personalization, price transparency, access, and seamless, simple experiences.
Proactive engagement can help your members lead healthier lives while improving outcomes for payers and other players. With 5% of Americans consuming 50% of healthcare costs, identifying and engaging high-risk, high-cost customer segments is essential to sustainability.
Data is the DNA of modern healthcare. As healthcare technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and patient data management and security evolve, emerging approaches for disease treatment and prevention—like precision medicine and healthcare content management—are becoming more necessary. Precision medicine is about moving from generic to more precise, population-focused diagnostics and treatment by factoring in data from patients’ genes, environment, lifestyle factors and family history, into clinical decision-making for earlier, more accurate diagnoses, and more effective treatment and prevention. Data is at the heart of enabling doctors and scientists to execute on this mission. Additionally, rapidly changing regulations throughout the world are affecting the management of all healthcare data. Infinidat removes data management barriers from this level of data interaction by removing isolated islands of storage and allowing much more data to reside on a single, high-performance, h
"Healthcare organizations have significantly more to consider than the average business when it comes to network and device security. Concern over code modification, key compromise, password-based vulnerabilities and man-in-the-middle attacks have caused hospital CIOs and CISOs to rethink their security strategies and investments. The threat to these devices has even been assigned its own term: medjacking, a shortened form of “medical device hijacking.”

While monitoring is critical for any business, it is especially imperative for highly regulated
industries such as healthcare. With patient data to protect and regulatory standards to meet,
you need to make sure your teams are building solutions that comply. If you’re not compliant,
you need to be able to quickly remediate issues, so you can still get your products out to
market and deliver better patient care.
There will be a ransomware attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of 2019 . Every 40 seconds, one of those attacks will prove successful , with devastating effects ranging from permanent loss of irreplaceable data to life-threatening interruptions to patient care. In years past, expert malware authors packaged up their know-how into costly exploit kits sold on the underground market. Cyber criminals had to recover high upfront costs before launching a campaign and realizing a profit. Today, ransomware-as a-service groups like Satan make it easier than ever before for would-be cyber criminals with minimal technical skills to launch attacks, offering free ransomware toolkits and hands-on help to manage campaigns and extort payments. Read our white paper to learn how CylancePROTECT® prevents Petya, Goldeneye, WannaCry, Satan, and many more from executing, with machine learning models dating back to September 2015, long before the ransomware first appeared in the wild.
When Daniel Shuler joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) as CISO in 2016, he knew the hospital would be a tempting target for cyber criminals due to the massive troves of sensitive data it collects to diagnose and treat patients. Over the next three years, Shuler spearheaded a complete overhaul of PCH’s security fabric. First, he decommissioned the legacy AV and engaged BlackBerry Cylance’s ThreatZERO™ consultants to deploy CylancePROTECT® on over 4,000 endpoints. Soon after, CylancePROTECT stopped a ransomware attack that could have disrupted patient care by preventing access to electronic medical record data. Next, he engaged a BlackBerry Cylance Red Team to perform annual penetration testing assignments. Says Shuler, “Our relationship is unique in my experience. BlackBerry Cylance has proven repeatedly that they have our best interests at heart and that they share our commitment to provide the best care possible for children and their families.” Read the case study for the full s
We have conditioned patients not only to expect opioids for pain relief, but to utilize more and more of them, and the addiction is both psychological and physical. To remedy the situation, a lot of policies and practices and behaviors must change around how the health care system approaches pain. But we do not yet have the data and
analytics we need to determine what specifically to do at the patient level or the policy level. Download this whitepaper to learn more about the resources available and how we can fix this issue.
