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

IT faces the challenge of consolidating, maintaining, and understanding complex configuration data and often this data is found in many different repositories. But there’s a better way to solve these challenges. The configuration management database (CMDB) consolidates disparate IT management systems into a single system of action. This ipaper provides you with the fundamentals to help ensure your configuration data management project with CMDB is a success.
"Agile" software development is an increasingly popular development process for producing software in a flexible and iterative manner that can deliver value to the enterprise faster, reduce project risk and allow adaptation to changes more quickly.
IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.
Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide:
• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

Every day, more organizations are adopting “cloud-first” strategies, shifting core business processes to public cloud systems and services. And though security concerns have been a barrier to digital transformation and cloud adoption in the past , it’s clear from the latest market projections—which see worldwide spending on public cloud services and infrastructure reaching US$210 billion in 2019 (up 23.8% over 2018) - companies migrating to the cloud from traditional environments are now prioritizing the benefits of the public cloud over any potential security risks to their business by understanding this new cloud security model and making strategic adjustments.

: Today’s learning environments would be unrecognizable to past generations. Professors distribute and issue syllabi and assignments online. Students collaborate on group projects using Google Docs, Doodle and other technologies. Password reset requests alone could keep an entire IT team busy. To face this onslaught of technological demands without breaking the budget, campuses need a powerful, flexible and affordable ITSM platform.
Read this eBook to learn how eight different colleges and universities are using Cherwell ITSM to achieve:
• A higher level of productivity (for example, implementing a self-service portal for password resets that slashed service requests by 65 percent)
• Faster service delivery (for example, cutting the global computer refresh cycle from three years to seven months)
• Less configuration time (for example, one school reduced configuration time by 74 percent).
To learn more about how leading campuses have easily and affordably improved their operational
AP automation is often described as low hanging fruit in the
garden of digital transformation. And for a good reason – the
barrier to entry is impressively low in terms of both cost and
effort needed to get up and running, particularly in comparison
to the implementation projects for other business applications.
Despite that fact, the value provided from AP automation is
comparably high. For such an easy implementation, the benefits
reach throughout an organization, beyond the walls of the AP
department, and are near-immediate from day one of using the
Standard benefits include:
- Immediate value from day one with an expected ROI within the first year
- Up to 95% truly touchless invoice processing with access to real-time cloud data for benchmarking and reporting
- Easy access to financial data, such as cash flow & accrual reporting, with full visibility and control of the AP process
This guide will help you kick-start your AP automation project by
defining the 6 steps to build a solid business case and gain the
internal approvals needed to get started.
Around 70% of Agile projects are contracted using a Time & Materials approach (T&M). However, this leaves clients carrying all the risk rather than sharing it with their supplier. But there is a better way.

The U.S. military continues to develop its quick-strike potential, seeking greater capacity to project force globally, quickly and on several fronts simultaneously. Support services are integral to that effort, particularly in the area of logistics and asset maintenance. In its 2018 National Defense Strategy, the Department of Defense identified the development of “resilient and agile logistics” among its key modernization goals.
At a projected market of over $4B by 2010 (Goldman Sachs), virtualizationhas firmly established itself as one of the most importanttrends in Information Technology. Virtualization is expectedto have a broad influence on the way IT manages infrastructure.Major areas of impact include capital expenditure and ongoingcosts, application deployment, green computing, and storage.
Today, deep learning is at the forefront of most machine learning implementations across a broad set of business verticals. Driven by the highly flexible nature of neural networks, the boundary of what is possible has been pushed to a point where neural networks outperform humans in a variety of tasks, such as classifying objects in images or mastering video games in a matter of hours. This guide outlines the end-to-end deep learning process implemented on Amazon Web Services (AWS). We discuss challenges in executing deep learning projects, highlight the latest and greatest technology and infrastructure offered by AWS, and provide architectural guidance and best practices along the way.
This paper is intended for deep learning research scientists, deep learning engineers, data scientists, data engineers, technical product managers, and engineering leaders.
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: consider the local culture and the people, prioritize basic needs and requests, work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments, and consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system. A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovation, and su
