While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare). While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

Rising costs, declining reimbursements and the mandate to improve quality: these are key challenges that surgery centers face every day. For years, costs have continued to climb, while reimbursements have declined or, at best, remained stable. To address these issues and succeed in the future, surgery centers need to develop comprehensive plans that leverage both supply chain and clinical expertise. For many facilities, the next step is to conduct a clinical assessment that identifies new ways to improve inventory management and clinical practices. The heart of this approach from Cardinal Health is a clinical team that leverages OR and supply chain expertise to understand, prioritize and pursue opportunities for improving the health of patient and your practice alike. To learn more, read this case study and find out how two surgery centers have used a clinical assessment from Cardinal Health to improve performance.

Companies are looking to their CFOs for strong leadership in developing corporate strategies and achieving growth. CFOs can meet these rising expectations by leveraging their knowledge of corporate data to extract valuable insights about customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders. Supported by analytics, CFOs can help their companies create a global, unified and clear view of their many relationships with customers and others to guide intelligent risk-taking and thoughtful investment—both necessary catalysts for growth. This capability will also enable the company, particularly its sales and marketing functions, to move faster and adapt more quickly to changing conditions. The 21st-century CFO is not only concerned with controlling costs and minimizing risk, but also with maximizing opportunities and generating growth. The right foundational technologies and organizational processes for data-driven decision making can help them achieve all of these strategic goals.

Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.

The scope and value that modern IT service delivery provides a business is increasing dramatically, according to a new research reportfrom Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). And yet in some organizations legacy ITSM systems contribute significantly to reduced credibility for IT departments who fail to integrate with and support important business concerns. This lack of modern IT service delivery creates multiple issues for the enterprise, including: Increasing divergence of IT and business performance Rising costs due to service delivery complexity Inability to measure and protect a business from potential risks Informed by extensive research and two compelling deployment narratives, this report examines what EMA calls “next-generation ITSM” and its contributions toward optimizing changing IT and business requirements. EMA contrasts these advances with the risks of staying with legacy ITSM models and then evaluates and itemizes the risks of “doing nothing” by allowing legacy ITS

Streamlining systems, facilitating outsourcing and increasing capabilities to telecommute would reduce costs while improving service. This would require creating customized workstations for users. Bell Canada approached VMware Partner CGI Group Inc., which provides end-to-end IT and business process services, for a solution.

More sales. Cost efficiency. Higher profits. – Every marketer wants these, but over-emphasizing unit cost of POP materials over the total cost of production makes them miss out on chances to achieve them. Taking a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach to supply chain management for brand activations enables marketers to grow their business more quickly and profitably. It entails, however, embracing new ways of thinking that can involve “unlearning” the status quo. This piece looks at factors comprising the three main categories contributing to Total Cost of Ownership: Direct Costs, Indirect Costs, and Post-Purchase Costs.

The days are gone when health issues would be treated clinically in isolation from the many other factors that affect the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Today, the rising costs of health care, an aging population and increasingly complex chronic health problems are driving greater focus and attention on population health — the health outcomes of a group of individuals within a population. Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health care and care delivery are identifying the social determinants of health for various populations such as environmental conditions, economic status, and access to resources and support.

Higher education has come under increasing scrutiny as never before due to rising costs, changes in future job requirements, and new forms of learning opportunities offered by non-traditional companies and institutions. Students and parents are rightfully questioning the value of higher education based on perceived outcomes as well as staggering student loans that in some cases could take a lifetime to pay back. While the value equation debate rages on, there is another phenomenon taking place. It is nothing short of a revolution regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. These new tools include new mobile devices, enhanced and feature-rich learning management systems, data-feeding sensors, 3D printers, smart classrooms, smart buildings, and collaboration tools allowing students and faculty to collaborate just about anywhere face-to-face, virtually.
