How Partners In Health is Using the Power of the Cloud to Improve Global Health

Wednesday, March 04, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Partners In Health (PIH) is a Boston-based nonprofit that delivers high-quality health care and serves impoverished communities around the world. Given its mission, resource allocation at PIH has always prioritized the needs of people over systems.

With communication systems becoming expensive to maintain and increasingly deficient, PIH decided to migrate to Microsoft Office 365, giving them a reliable and secure communication toolbox.

Join Perficient, along with Dave Mayo, CIO at Partners In Health, to discover:

  • How adopting a consolidated, reliable platform for colleague interactions enables PIH to more effectively improve the quality of health and needs of underserved populations
  • The process of moving 1500 users to the cloud, including a transition to Exchange Online for company-wide communication, Azure-hosted ADFS for identity management, and SharePoint Online for document storage and collaboration
  • The importance of organizational change management to deploy Office 365
  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity for Your Clinical and Safety Systems

    Thursday, March 05, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    Your systems are up and running. You have no issues. It’s business as usual and all is as it should be. Then, suddenly, it’s not. A flood, an earthquake, a tornado or a fire threatens your organization’s ability to continue operating. Systems are offline, critical business processes have stalled. What damage has been inflicted? How long until you can recover? What do you do in the meantime? These are questions that no organization can properly answer without proper planning and testing. 

    The implications of an unplanned and unprepared-for event can be devastating to a company, as well as to the patients it serves. The only way to mitigate such risks is through comprehensive planning and testing. Please join Sean Bernard, lead business consultant in Perficient's life sciences practice, as he discusses why business continuity and disaster planning are so critical to life sciences companies, and shares best practices for preparing your company for the unforeseen.

    Build a Mobile Foundation to Drive Digital Transformation Initiatives

    Thursday, March 19, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    Mobile has been adopted faster than any consumer technology in history. In an always-on, always-connected world we expect the information we want to be available whenever and wherever we want it. As customer expectations rise, you need to change the way you work and engage with them.

    While highly engaging user experiences are critical, you’re often faced with aging technologies on supporting back-end systems that can hinder innovation. You’re challenged to transform the mobile experience by delivering high-quality, secure and scalable mobile experiences quickly.

    Join us to learn:

  • Top mobile trends that are driving digital transformation and delivering significant business value
  • Key process and architecture improvements that speed development and ensure stable, scalable, and secure mobile services
  • Tips for establishing a flexible mobility strategy and architecture for app development, mobile app management, mobile device management, and integration approaches

  • Succeed with Yammer: Encouraging Adoption with Smart Social Governance

    Wednesday, March 25, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    Microsoft is the leader in Gartner’s most recent Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Social, and Yammer is the driving force behind their success. Yet many administrators and IT stakeholders—while familiar with Microsoft tools like SharePoint—are still uncertain over how to govern an enterprise social network. 

    How do you maintain security and compliance while still encouraging the sort of open conversation that a platform like Yammer needs to add value? 

    Join two recognized enterprise social experts, Perficient's Rich Wood and Joe Crabtree, as they discuss social governance and user adoption in Yammer.

    Starting with the differences between Yammer and SharePoint from a planning and governance perspective, they will move on to real-world best practices and tips for how you can move your organization along on the road of your own social journey!

  • A Real Retail Strategy for Healthcare

    Tuesday, March 31, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    With a focus on providing high-quality, lower-cost care, the healthcare industry has been looking to the retail industry for strategies used to engage and empower consumers. Lessons learned include how to use the retail setting as a medium for providing care and how to engage consumers outside of the care setting by using technology. 

    What is often neglected when assessing retail industry tactics is their core competency of using data insights to motivate and incentivize changes in consumer behavior. Connected Health solutions provide streams of valuable information that can be mined and analyzed to achieve business objectives. 

    Join Perficient as our healthcare and retail experts demonstrate how data can be leveraged to:

  • Transform passive recipients of care into active participants in care
  • Mass customize messaging aligned with population health initiatives
  • Achieve outreach objectives that convert unknown consumers into patients/members
  • Improve care and lower healthcare costs
  • HIPAA Compliance and its Relationship to Pharmacovigilance

    Thursday, April 16, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
    Most of us have heard of the United States Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and how it protects the privacy of our health information and gives us access to it. While discussions around HIPAA arise more frequently among healthcare institutions such as hospitals, HIPAA also plays an integral role in the life sciences industry. 

    Please join Perficient's Christi Cordeiro, safety and pharmacovigilance project manager, for a one-hour webinar in which she will provide an overview of U.S. HIPAA rules and discuss their application to pharmacovigilance programs.
