Four IT mandates for capturing opportunities amidst healthcare industry changes.

With extensive regulatory changes, changing business models to value-based care, unpredictable revenue and competitive challenges, the healthcare industry is undergoing an unprecedented level of mandatory transformation. To meet—or better yet, rise above—these challenges, healthcare organizations should assess their strategic goals and IT initiatives so they can capture new opportunities, innovate and increase their competitive position.

We recommend healthcare companies consider these three areas as they map this year’s strategic goals: patient outcomes and population health, doing more with less (without negatively impacting patient care), and the adoption of new business models (i.e., models that reward providers for improved patient outcomes).

Capital One puts containers and microservices to work for its big data analytics tools.

Companies across industries continue to accumulate enormous amounts of data every day, and that’s good news, considering that 62 percent of them believe that big data has significant potential to create a competitive advantage, according to a report from PwC.
