The Imprivata Report on the Economic Impact of Inefficient Communications in Healthcare
July 28, 2014, 12:00 pm

Efficient communication and collaboration amongst physicians, nurses and other providers is critical to
the coordination and delivery of patient care, especially given the increasingly mobile nature of today’s
clinicians and the evolution of the accountable care organization (ACO) model.

For healthcare IT leadership, the ability to satisfy the clinical need for more efficient communications
technologies must be balanced with safeguarding protected health information (PHI) to meet compliance and security requirements. As a result, the industry continues to rely primarily on pagers for provider-to-provider communications, which creates inefficiencies that can have a considerable economic and productivity impact.

To quantify this impact, The Imprivata Report on the Economic Impact of Inefficient Communications in
surveyed more than 400 healthcare providers in the U.S. about the typical communication
process during three clinical workflows: patient admissions, coordinating emergency response teams and
patient transfers. (Click to download the complete study)

November 19, 2013, 5:12 pm

The 2013 Cybersecurity Salary Benchmarking Report is now available. The number one reason security professionals leave an organization is due to compensation. Security teams and HR professionals need salary benchmarking information to retain key staff and make offers to new team member. Based on this need we developed the 2013 Cybersecurity Salary Benchmarking Report, giving managers the information needed to:

* Compare staff compensation to industry averages
* Retain top talent
* Make competitive offers to new team members
* Increase staff budgets
* Avoid vulnerabilities that result from staffing shortages

"In past years, organizations have commissioned us to produce salary studies for their own knowledge. We are now making this comprehensive report available to all organizations through SecureWorld Insight, a partnership with Ponemon Institute and SecureWorld Expo. As the market for top quality IT security professions gets more competitive, this information becomes increasingly important to assure proper staff budgets and to avoid vulnerabilities that result from unfilled roles." - Dr. Ponemon.
