CA PPM Insights: Surviving-to-Thriving, The Healthcare Vertical is Difficult but CA Services Can Differentiate

By Anon Anon posted 08-31-2017 08:44 AM


Hello PPM Practitioners. The healthcare industry has been going through massive changes with the Affordable Care Act uncertainty and significant cross pressure in the market, which is driving innovation. This post focuses on delivering PPM outcomes in the complex Healthcare vertical, and highlights some important content you can use when transforming your organizations.


Industry Changes:

Cross Pressure from Markets:



Healthcare can be difficult, and a mature PPM ecosystem is crucial to increased agility and to innovate faster so you can deliver life-saving services more quickly and safely. This paraphrases a valuable online resource: Healthcare, rewritten by software.


The healthcare industry is facing an unprecedented combination of competitive, regulatory and financial pressures that must be addressed through innovation and operational precision. The empowered digital healthcare customer, armed with a wealth of information and tools, adds another dimension with a demand for more transparency and personalization of their treatment.


Check out this awesome post with artifacts you can use: Research, Case Studies, White Papers, eBooks and even take an Assessment! Though the concepts listed above can cross solutions, PPM is a vital component and a clear connective tissue. A hot topic to this is APIs, which are a major asset for Healthcare as these help drive down costs and access multiple systems/data points.


APIs Connect Apps to Data Securely:



The reason I bring up APIs is because CA Services has extensive experience and utility across a range of Healthcare challenges and offers a distinct advantage to achieving desired outcomes (note: Healthcare is the #2 PPM implementation vertical). It is important to evaluate professional services providers based on their ability to support your complete transformation or implementation engagement. Seek out providers who understand and work within ALL the stuff that affects Healthcare projects, like Security, Infrastructure Management, Agile, and more. The ability to bring in multiple disciplines, with broad knowledge and extensive experience of the complex interconnectedness of Healthcare, provides you with a distinct advantage and bias towards success.  


CA PPM Services has an arsenal of tools in this sector, and below are some common outcomes:



To truly manage a PPM solution across the multidimensional Healthcare environment, it is imperative to holistically architect it. CA Services and products offer that end-to-end model, and is a good standard against which to measure capabilities of any provider. Your ongoing organizational transformation is a vital investment, and trusting the breadth and depth of experience from a service provider can enable you to survive and thrive.  Having a powerhouse of talented and interconnected experts across every discipline is crucial; and is the reason experienced Practitioners hesitate to entrust such a critical area to niche solution advisers whose experience can be limited and limiting.  


New Resource Site! You asked, we responded. We have consolidated many of the common hot topics into a single CA Project & Portfolio Management Services portal (screenshot below). You can find Implementation, Upgrading, Migrating to SaaS, Application Managed Services, and much more. Also, see this in action with the Modern Software Factory.  Thanks for asking, and I know you’ll find it useful.
