Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part One: Trends and Definition


The metric of plant maintenance should now be in the ability of the plant to meet the strategic goals of the company beyond customarily expected cost savings, such as improved plant output, performance predictability, product quality, customer service, safety, environmental control, etc.

The RCM concept is based upon determining how assets fail, why each failure type occurs, and the symptoms that indicate potential failure. Understanding failures can also reveal the right work to be performed based upon the specific symptoms. By monitoring the asset with this view, users can detect the symptoms of failure and react to these symptoms (e.g., a low pressure of the pump) with the right work (e.g., Read More

6 Steps for Linking Corporate Strategy to the Budget

Accelerate ICD-10 Migrations While Cutting Costs and Risk


The International Classifications of Diseases (ICD), used in order to categorize and classify medical conditions and procedures, has been updated. The purpose of the change is to streamline claims, provide better data analysis, and increase both diagnostic and procedural accuracy. ICD-10 not only allows for more information to be coded, but is superior to the previous coding system, filling in information gaps and reflecting the advancements made since the 1970s. The switch to ICD-10 will affect a wide range of areas within healthcare, such as billing, future service planning, diagnosing, and data gathering.

With a deadline for adoption of October 15, 2015, it’s essential that the transition be made as smoothly as possible. The processes, transactions, and databases associated with the new system of ICD-10 coding must be tested for functionality in a wide array of applications before full ICD-10 adoption. Delphix can help, allowing testing to be performed throughout migration. In this white paper, read how Delphix Agile Data can assist your team with the challenges faced in migrating from ICD-9 to ICD10. Learn about the complex factors involved with new data management and how implementation of the Delphix platform can reduce costs significantly by offering 90% lower storage costs for ICD-10 migration test environments. Delphix platforms also grants on-demand data access to minimize impact on production teams. Accessible from the cloud, the platform can be accessed both on and offsite. Delphix functions on any hardware and can be implemented at any stage of migration with little interference to ongoing projects.
