IBM zEnterprise: Healthcare

  1. 1. George Mattathil -5/10/2011IBM zEnterprise Systembusiness value for the healthcare industrySmarter systems for a smarter planet™Posting reference 727 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  2. 2. To succeed, health care organizations are focusing on three keySmarter Healthcare™ imperatives that are directly benefited by thenew IBM zEnterprise System advantages. IMPROVE OPERATIONAL ACHIEVE BETTER QUALITY EFFECTIVENESS AND OUTCOMES  Contain costs DELIVER COLLABORATIVE CARE FOR PREVENTION  Improve quality of care,  Improve operational prevention and wellness AND WELLNESS efficiency  Proactively manage chronic  Create new business  Activate patients and disease value communities to improve health  Measure and demonstrate and wellness reporting compliance  Increase health care value IBM’s healthcare industry value proposition IBM collaborates with health benefits organizations to help them operate efficiently, achieve better quality and performance, and develop new care models to create member value. The IBM healthcare industryvalue proposition is enhancedwith the introduction of the new IBMzEnterprise™ System.2 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  3. 3. Healthcare organizations‟ IT-dependent business goals and outcomes advantaged by zEnterprise. 1 3 eHealth and 2 Quality and Modernization and collaborative care Performance TransformationDESIRED OUTCOMES of high-priority payor IT initiatives  Better personal health management for • More informed, timely decisions based  Reduced core operations cost and members and patients on member-centric, enterprise increased business flexibility  Strengthened collaborative information  Improved service responsiveness partnerships with members, patients • New member and business value, and through rapid adoption and response to and providers improved financial results risks and opportunities  Improved health decision effectiveness,  Improved business and compliance risk • Increased member growth and quality and safety, and reduced management covering privacy, security, retention through delivery of higher- medical costs long-term data retention and value products and services  Improved stakeholder satisfaction and information availability member, patient and provider • Improved risk transparency and experience reduced lossesDESIRED OUTCOMES of high-priority provider IT initiatives • Improved quality of care and • Higher quality outcomes, process efficiency • Improved core operational flexibility to patient safety through collaboration and cost reductions through intelligence support cost reduction and excellence • Better integration of care teams infused into decision-making • Faster service responsiveness and • Improved efficiency to control • Improved transparency and quality reporting more efficient and effective IT- healthcare costs • Optimized business performance and enabled business services • Improved efficiency through clinical operational knowledge to act on new • Improved management of business automation of Electronic Medical opportunities and compliance risk related Records 3 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. Healthcare business processes addressed by newIBM zEnterprise System advantages. IMPROVE OPERATIONAL ACHIEVE BETTER QUALITY DELIVER EFFECTIVENESS AND OUTCOMES COLLABORATIVE CARE1 2 3 Cost containment Insight and compliance Increased efficiency and valueEXAMPLE: Independent findings indicate that healthcare institutions can realize significantcost and operational efficiencies with the IBM zEnterprise™ System, such as: 24 percent lower IT cost-per- hospital bed“… in the long run the marketplace rewards those that make the optimum use of the rightcomputing resourcesin the right way as evidenced by business performance” — Dr. Howard Rubin, CEO and Founder Rubin Worldwide4 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  5. 5. Built on best-in-class systems and software technologies, IBMzEnterprise helps unify IT for predictable service delivery healthcare organizations demand. Three new innovations of IBM zEnterprise™ System IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) zEnterprise Unified zEnterprise BladeCenter Resource Manager Extension (zBX)  Optimized to host large-scale  Unifies management of  Selected IBM POWER7 blades database, transaction, and resources, extending IBM and IBM System x Blades* for mission-critical applications System z qualities of service tens of thousands of AIX and  The most efficient platform end-to-end across workloads Linux applications for large-scale Linux  Provides platform, hardware  High-performance optimizers consolidation and workload management and appliances to accelerate  Capable of massive scale-up time to insight and reduce cost  New easy-to-use z/OS V1.12  Dedicated high-performance * All statements regarding IBM future direction and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice, private network5 and represents goals and objectives only. © 2010 IBM Corporation
  6. 6. Extending IBM System z® qualities of service to makeclouds ready for healthcare organizations. Security Virtualization Industry-leading security at the Centralized management of core of an integrated virtual servers across a infrastructure heterogeneous pool Identifies potential fraud in near More than 100,000 virtual servers in real time a single IBM zEnterprise™ System Availability Efficiency Resiliency management and Economies of scale for labor, fewer points of failure software and environmental costs Centralized management of Helps reduce labor, energy, and heterogeneous workloads development costs, by up to 70 aligned to business priorities percent, 90 percent, and 20 percent, respectively (IBM Internal Study based on Oracle SW with Nehalem 4 core running 25% utilization) Scalability Ability to help meet massive demands from users and data Process up to a trillion instructions per second with a single IBM zEnterprise System6 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  7. 7. Healthcare provider—information hubs Challenges and issues:  Client grew through acquisitions and has multiple systems—looking to consolidate data and systems to reduce complexity and the number of systems to update  Challenged to support new industry mandates  Need to standardize on platforms to reduce complexity for development, test and production  Need to reduce the time required to configure a new development and test environment  Need ability to monitor the end-to-end transaction flow to determine bottlenecks  New application—some architectural choices still being investigated Business advantage: The Future with IBM Consolidation and simplification can provide client zEnterprise™ System agility to better compete in the highly volatile and Consolidate information into competitive healthcare industry „information hubs‟ that will be used Operational advantage: by all of the adjudication systems. Two options being considered  Application and data proximity include Master Data Management  Manage and monitor cross actions on one ensemble using IBM DB2® on IBM z/OS®  Network—high speed, private, possible opportunity for reduced for data store with IBM requirements for firewalls and encryption WebSphere® on either IBM AIX®  Allows for virtualization across multiple tier workloads or Linux® for IBM System z®  Consistency and standardization of operating system, middleware and application reduces variations in test  Consolidated floor space  Reduced energy costs7 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  8. 8. Summary: A new dimension in computing forhealthcare organizations.Management Multi-platform  The world‟s fastest and most scalable integration integration enterprise systems with virtually unrivalled reliability, security and manageability  The industry‟s most efficient platforms for large-scale data center simplification and consolidation  A “system of systems,” integrating IBM‟s leading technologies to help improve dramatically the productivity of today‟s multi-architecture data centers and Stack tomorrow‟s private clouds integrationFor more Posting reference 727 © 2010 IBM Corporation
