Population Health: An Implementation Guide to Improve Outcomes and Lower Costs

Population Health: An Implementation Guide to Improve Outcomes and Lower Costs by MBA George Mayzell MD

As healthcare moves from volume to value, payment models and delivery systems will need to change their focus from the individual patient to a population orientation. This will move our economic model from that of a "sick system" to a system of care focused on prevention, boosting patient engagement, and reducing medical expenditures. This new focus will shift traditional financial accountability from the payer model to provider directed models.

Battlefield Events: Landscape, commemoration and heritage

Oracle Case Management Solutions

Oracle Case Management Solutions by L?on Smiers & Manas Deb & Joop Koster

Organizations increasingly need to deal with unstructured processes that traditional business process management (BPM) suites are not designed to deal with. High-risk, yet high-value, loan origination or credit approvals, police investigations, and healthcare patient treatment are just a few examples of areas where a level of uncertainty makes outcome and execution of work flow non-deterministic.

Case management is a way to govern and control these unstructured processes and non-deterministic outcomes. Oracle recently completed its BPM technology stack with broad case management functionality...

American Wine: A Coming-of-Age Story

American Wine: A Coming-of-Age Story by Tom AcitelliThe story of how the United States came to dominate fine wine

In 1976, the bicentennial year of American Independence, the nation's wine was an international afterthought—stylistically and commercially. Within a generation, however, the United States would stand unquestionably at the world vanguard of wine, reversing centuries of Euro-centrism and dominating the fruit of the vine so thoroughly that Europeans were forced to adopt American words to describe their own creations. In the process, it spawned a wine culture and became intertwined with a kind of aspirational living: American fine wine...

Aviation Safety and Security: The Importance of Teamwork, Leadership, Creative Thinking and Active Learning by Simon BennettOn March 27, 1977 at Los Rodeos airport in Tenerife, 583 people were killed when two Boeing 747s collided.

The industry's teamwork training programme, commonly known as Crew Resource Management (CRM), has helped make aviation one of the safest forms of transportation. CRM's migration into military aviation has helped reduce mishaps by 50% - 81%. According to academics Robyn Clay-Williams,...

Strange Brew: Alcohol and Government Monopoly

Strange Brew: Alcohol and Government Monopoly by Glen WhitmanWhen prohibition ended in 1933, laws were passed that regulated the sale of alcoholic beverages, ostensibly to protect wholesalers from the depredations of suppliers and the public from the ill effects of alcohol. This book examines the monopoly protection laws, also known as franchise termination laws, and how they lock suppliers into government-mandated contracts with alcohol wholesalers that affect consumers by raising prices and reducing the quality of alcoholic products and services. This study also investigates the notion that alcohol consumption is a sin and how legal restrictions have...

In the course of their 20+-year engineering careers, authors Brian Fitzpatrick and Ben Collins-Sussman have picked up a treasure trove of wisdom and anecdotes about how successful teams work together. Their conclusion? Even among people who have spent decades learning the technical side of their jobs, most haven't really focused on the human component. Learning to collaborate is just as important to success. If you invest in the "soft skills" of your job, you can have a much greater impact for the same amount of effort.
