Patient falls were the largest category of adverse events reported at Barnes- Jewish Hospital. Progress in meeting targets for reducing falls and fall injury rates had been static despite multiple efforts. One component of the hospital’s Fall Reduction Program was a portable bed exit alarm system—a Bed-Check Classic-Check® control unit (CU) with Sensormat® pressure sensitive mat— widely used throughout the hospital. Due to high demand by staff, the CU was often not available, resulting in delayed care delivery and staff dissatisfaction. Loss or damage due to handoff between staff and the central service department resulted in additional resources and costs. Read this case study to learn how Barnes-Jewish Hospital implemented Bed-Check® Fall Management Solution as a part of their Fall Reduction Program, resulting in decreased fall injury rates and improved staff satisfaction.

Decision makers at many organizations question the investments made in IT. This is often because they don’t fully understand the value delivered by IT service management (ITSM) or by compliance with recommended best practices such as those defined by the IT Infrastructure Library or ITIL®. This often pressures CIOs to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. Learn how creating a great service catalog can help alleviate these pressures and why many consider it to be fundamental to any IT improvement initiative. An effective service catalog enables IT to deliver business services that are more customer and service focused, which results in higher customer satisfaction, provides standardization and consistency and increases IT visibility across the organization.

For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise. A corporate venture capital fund for investing in outside startups can help a company see, understand, and respond rapidly to changes in the business landscape.

Delivering high-quality services with greater speed and efficiency is one of the greatest pressures facing your information technology (IT) infrastructure. The rise of computing in the cloud, expansive mobility options, and increasing pressure to boost application performance have added even further complexity - leading to inefficiencies that can limit your opportunity for growth and success. Traditional, siloed IT infrastructures are often too labor intensive, inefficient, and slow to overcome these challenges. Organizations need a converged, cloud-ready, software defined infrastructure to help them meet the evolving demands of their business.

While corporate training and education programs may seem to some like standard internal HR functions, their impact is vast. These programs not only support employee growth and career development, which improves satisfaction and retention; they also provide new product knowledge, upgrade skills and ultimately improve corporate productivity. With that said, like any other cost center, corporate training departments are facing increasing pressure from above to provide higher, more measurable returns on investment and “do more with less” in the form of shrinking training and travel budgets. They are also being asked to minimize the time employees spend undergoing training, to increase productivity. To achieve this, trainers are embracing new forms of learning to deliver training and development. This paper discusses the 5 benefits of Video Collaboration in Corporate Training.

As organizations aim to increase business agility and streamline costs, demand for public cloud services continues to grow exponentially, with Gartner predicting it will become the majority of new IT spending by 2016. This evolving application ecosystem with its intensive performance demands is placing new pressures on traditional public cloud services. Amid this shift, Internap surveyed nearly 250 Internet infrastructure decision makers to gain insight into cloud adoption, requirements and challenges – including the differences in feedback between the cloud-wise, those using cloud services, and the cloud-wary, those with no near-term plans to use cloud services. The details of these findings are reflected in this Cloud Landscape Report.
